RESEARCH. One Ph.D. position is available immediately at the University of Calgary, Canada to study gut innate immunity contributed by host defense peptides and immunoregulation in the epithelial and leukocyte cross-talking in response to microbial pathogens.
  Development of a novel therapeutic for the treatment of sickle cell anaemia
  Dr M Brennan, Prof M Devocelle
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sickle cell anaemia is a chronic condition that is expensive to treat and requires significant clinical intervention and management.
  Novel Cyclic Peptides for Biomedical Imaging and Therapeutic Targeting
  Prof M Zanda
Application Deadline: 1 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cyclic Peptides have a wide range of applications as drugs and diagnostics, and have often higher receptor affinity, metabolic stability and better pharmacokinetic properties compared to their linear counterparts, but their synthesis still presents significant challenges.
  Do Novel Post-Translationally modified peptides Exacerbate COPD?
  Dr EP Reeves, Dr G McElvaney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), which includes emphysema and chronic bronchitis, is a leading cause of disability and mortality.
  Toward developing next-generation therapeutics - targeting the undruggable interactome
  Dr W Houssen, Prof M Jaspars, Dr L Trembleau
Applications accepted all year round

This project will combine multiple single molecule imaging techniques applied to model membranes [1] to study the mechanisms of peptide interaction of established and novel AMPs.
  Solubility and Crystallisation of Peptides
  Dr J Heng
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Imperial College are inviting applications for a PhD position to join an exciting new Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) Prosperity Partnership between Imperial, UCL and Eli Lilly on Transforming synthetic drug manufacturing.
  Protease-resistant antimicrobial peptides to target bacterial and fungal pathogens
  Dr J Bella, Dr L Tabernero
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance is quickly becoming a serious global health problem. The emergence of multidrug-resistant microbial strains combined with the drying up of the antibiotic pipeline in the pharmaceutical industry has significantly worsened the situation in recent years.
