  Synthesis of ribonucleosides using biocatalytic cascades
  Prof N Turner, Prof S Flitsch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background – Current state of the art for the synthesis of Anti-Sense Oligonucleotides employs solid phase synthesis. The ASOs are assembled from individual ribonucleotides which themselves are often requiring complicated multistep routes to prepare.
  The greening of peptide synthesis
  Prof M North
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Peptide synthesis (both solution and solid state) is of fundamental importance to the pharmaceuticals sector. They are therefore expected to play a major role in the future of drug discovery.
  Brønsted Acid Catalysed Asymmetric Synthesis of Cyclic Ethers
  Dr P Clarke
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over recent years there has been a drive by medicinal chemists to explore more 3-dimensional areas of chemical space. Cyclic ethers, such as the tetrahydropyran (THP) and the tetrahydrofuran (THF) rings, are the most common and 6th most common saturated heterocyclic function present in marketed pharmaceuticals.
  Regulatory roles for ribosome-associated proteins in protein synthesis
  Prof G D Pavitt, Dr M Pool
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Protein synthesis is a highly-conserved, dynamic and tightly controlled process that is central to the activity of all cells. All phases of translation can be controlled.
  Responsive Polymer Nanostructures - the Synthesis of Novel Responsive Polymers and their subsequent self-assembly
  Prof R O'Reilly
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD studentship is available from October 2018 in the group led by Professor Rachel O’Reilly studying the synthesis of novel responsive polymers and their subsequent self-assembly.
  Promoting physical activity for people living with or beyond cancer: Using mixed-methods of health services research (evidence synthesis, qualitative research and a survey).
  Prof N Williams, Dr R Hill
Application Deadline: 1 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. There are over 2 million people in the UK living with or beyond cancer. The number of people diagnosed is increasing, but the number dying is decreasing, leading to more people surviving after a cancer diagnosis.
  Joint PhD with University of Bayreuth: Synthesis and Manipulation of Semiconducting Block Copolymers for Organic Photovoltaic active Layers
  Assoc Prof D Jones
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for a suitably qualified graduate student to work on a jointly funded PhD project between the University of Melbourne and the Universität Bayreuth on the induction of block copolymer self-assembly for high performance organic photovoltaic devices and the characterisation thereof.
  Modelling the synthesis of metal-organic frameworks for continuous manufacture
  Dr M Jorge, Dr A Fletcher
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Metal-Organic Frameworks, or MOFs for short, are exciting nanoporous materials at the forefront of many new scientific discoveries.
  Studies on the Total Synthesis of Anthracimycin and Related Natural Products
  Dr P Clarke
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Anthracimycin 1 and chlorotonil A 2 exhibit extremely potent activity as antibiotic agents, while streptosetin A 3 has anti-tumour activity.
  Synthesis of medicinally important macrocycles via Successive ring expansion
  Dr W Unsworth
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Traditionally, medium sized rings and macrocycles are made by forming a chemical bond between the two ‘ends’ of a long linear molecule (A), but competing side reactions and/or dimerisation reactions usually dominate in such processes, leading to inefficient reaction processes.
