synthetic organic chemistry PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

We have 78 synthetic organic chemistry PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

PhD in Chemistry: Applications of main group Lewis acids in synthetic organic chemistry

Applications of main group Lewis acids in synthetic organic chemistry. This project will investigate the use of boron or aluminium Lewis acids in transformations typically catalysed by transition metals. Read more

Stereoselective synthesis of mechanically chiral molecules for sensing and catalysis

Background – the stereoselective synthesis of mechanically chiral molecules. The stereoselective synthesis of chiral organic molecules is one of the core challenges in synthetic organic chemistry. Read more

Synthesis of macrocycles and medium-sized rings via new ring expansion approaches

Summary. Macrocycles (12+ membered rings) and medium-sized rings (8–11-membered) are cyclic molecules with great potential in many scientific fields and technologies – especially in medicinal chemistry. Read more

PhD in Chemistry - Synthesis and characterisation of original cyclopolyesters and cyclopolyamides with unprecedented properties

Bright, highly motivated candidates are invited to apply for a fully funded 3.5 year PhD position, available to commence on 1st October 2024 in the Prunet research group at the School of Chemistry of the University of Glasgow. Read more

Design and synthesis of novel enzyme substrates for the detection of pathogenic microorganisms (Ref: RDFC24/HLS/APP/TURNBULL)

FUNDED PROJECT - UK APPLICANTS ONLY. Background. This project builds upon a 30-year collaboration between Northumbria University, the Freeman Hospital (Newcastle upon Tyne NHS Trust), and bioMérieux – a multinational biotechnology company. Read more

Free radical reactions and autoxidation in heterogeneous systems

Background and project aim. Oxidative damage to surfaces is usually caused by free radical reactions. They can be triggered by light (e.g., sunlight) or oxygen. Read more

PhD Position in Organic Chemistry

The Faculty of Natural Sciences at the TU Chemnitz (Chemnitz University of Technology) offers an employment at the earliest opportunity for a Research Assistant/PhD candidate in the Breugst research group. Read more

Design and synthesis of chemical tools to interrogate cannabinoid receptors - synthetic, medicinal chemistry

Research project. We are seeking a highly motivated PhD candidate to join an interdisciplinary team at the University of Otago, to undertake research developing chemical probes for the cannabinoid receptor, a type of G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR). Read more

Mechanophores for the force-controlled release of small molecules

Any force developed at the macroscopic scale can induce dramatic changes at the molecular scale, even breaking covalent bonds.[1] Indeed, mechanical force is a formidable source of energy that, with its ability to distort, bend and stretch chemical bonds, is unique in its ability to promote reaction pathways that are otherwise inaccessible to traditional methods of activation. Read more

Conformational dynamics of transmembrane molecular machines

About the project. A fully funded PhD position (tuition fees and stipend) is available in the group of Dr James Cooper (https://www.cooperchemistry.com/) at the University of Reading. Read more

Chemically fuelled transmembrane pumps

Project. Nonequilibrium transmembrane processes are crucial in almost every biological process. Pumping and harnessing transmembrane gradients provides a convenient and efficient way for life to store and transduce energy. Read more

Mechanochemistry with mechanical bonds

Any force developed at the macroscopic scale can induce dramatic changes at the molecular scale, even breaking covalent bonds.[1] Indeed, mechanical force is a formidable source of energy that, with its ability to distort, bend and stretch chemical bonds, is unique in its ability to promote reaction pathways that are otherwise inaccessible to traditional methods of activation.
