  Design and Synthesis of Bifunctional 3-D Building Blocks for Use in Medicinal Chemistry
  Prof P O'Brien
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is in collaboration with Professor Mike Waring (Newcastle University). Background. Fragment-based methods are established for the identification of lead compounds in drug discovery.1 Fragments are small molecules (molecular weight ~150-300) which bind weakly to proteins.
  Chemistry Approaches to Assembling New Imaging and Sensing Metalloprobes
  Prof S Pascu
Application Deadline: 28 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisory team. Professor Sofia Pascu, Department of Chemistry https://people.bath.ac.uk/sp350/. Dr Charareh Pourzand, Department of Pharmacy & Pharmacology https://researchportal.bath.ac.uk/en/persons/charareh-pourzand.
  Mapping the three dimensional structure of RNA
  Prof M Wills
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We aim to combine organic synthetic chemistry, molecular biology, virology and computational biology tools to elucidate the 3D structure determinants behind RNA viruses such as dengue virus and coronaviruses.
  New reactions of sulfoxonium ylides – for safer synthetic chemistry
  Dr C Aissa
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sulfoxonium ylides offer superior thermal stability over the parent diazo compounds. This advantageous safety feature has attracted interest from process chemists for the synthesis of drug candidates in industry.
  PhD in Chemistry: Single or Double? A Radical Approach to Synthesis via Frustrated Lewis Pairs Through EPR Characterisation
  Dr E Richards, Dr R Melen
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project aims to characterise electron transfer processes that direct the chemical reactivity of Frustrated Lewis Pairs, opening the potential for divergent reactivities in organic synthesis and small molecule activation.
  PhD in Chemical Biology -- Neuropeptide Research -- University of Vienna
  Prof M Muttenthaler
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neuropeptides are key mediators in many biological functions and understanding their interaction with target proteins is fundamental to unravel the underlying mechanism of diseases.
  How the chemistry used to attach proteins to biomaterial surfaces influences how cells grow
  Dr C Spicer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The use of synthetic materials as scaffolds for growing cells and tissues is a key concept in tissue engineering. Tissues grown in the lab could potentially be used to repair damage in vivo for the treatment of disease.
  EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Next Generation Synthesis & Reaction Technology (rEaCt) - 5 Studentship Projects Available

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fully funded EPSRC – and some industry-funded – studentships are available for Home Students and EU nationals who have been ordinarily resident in the UK for at least three years prior to the start date a CDT studentship, i.e.
  Centre for Doctoral Training in Chemistry for a Sustainable and Healthy Society

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are delighted to announce the launch of the Centre for Doctoral Training in Chemistry for a Sustainable and Healthy Society at King's College London.
  Regioregular phthalocyanines for phototherapy
  Dr R Edkins
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project based within Dr Robert Edkins’ Group will use synthetic chemistry and photophysical measurements to develop phthalocyanines for photothermal and photodynamic therapy with combined photoacoustic or fluorescence capabilities.
  Exploring the fundamental reactivity of different species present in “GaOTf” to understand better how they may play a role in catalysis
  Dr J Slattery
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There has been a recent renaissance in main group chemistry that has led to a number of new, high-profile research areas, including frustrated Lewis pair (FLP) chemistry and many more.
  A multidisciplinary approach to elucidate how TB obtains and uses essential energy sources
  Dr E Fullam, Dr A Cameron, Prof I Gibson
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tuberculosis (TB) is a major global health challenge. TB is now the leading cause of death from a single infectious agent worldwide killing more people than HIV and malaria combined.
