  Novel Natural Products in Algae: an Untapped Resource for New Chemistry, Biochemistry and Bioactivity
  Dr E O'Neill
Application Deadline: 1 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Algae are a very wide range of organisms that are found all over the planet, able to take the energy from the sun and convert CO2 into all the molecules they need to live.
  Genome mining of novel antimicrobial natural products from new bacterial strains
  Dr H Deng, Prof M Jaspars
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is rising to dangerously high levels in all parts of the world. In Europe alone, drug-resistant bacteria are estimated to cause 25,000 deaths annually and cost more than US$1.5 billion every year in healthcare expenses and productivity losses.
  Exploring the synthesis and biological value of natural product-inspired compounds
  Dr D Foley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Key words. natural products; organic synthesis; medicinal chemistry; drug discovery. Motivated international and New Zealand-based candidates are invited to apply for a University of Canterbury Doctoral Scholarship to investigate the synthesis and biological value of natural product-inspired compound collections.
  Therapeutic resolution of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) by natural products
  Research Group: Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics
  Dr T Nasim, Prof C Wright
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a devastating cardiovascular disorder which, if left untreated, leads to heart failure and death.
  Discovery of novel pharmaceuticals from marine and desert microorganisms
  Prof M Jaspars, Dr R Ebel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microorganisms from extreme environments such as the deep seas, cold seas and hyper arid deserts have been shown to produce a range of complex natural products with high biological activity.
  Elucidating plant alkaloid biosynthesis
  Dr B R Lichman, Dr W Unsworth
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants are capable of forming complex natural products from simple starting materials. Many of these natural products are bioactive, but access is limited as they are difficult to synthesise using organic chemistry and are present in small quantities in the natural source.
  Novel synthetic approaches to antimicrobial natural products and investigations of their bioactivity
  Prof A Malkov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of the project is to develop new highly effective anti-tubercular agents. Previously, it has been established that terpenes isolated from marine organisms possess a number of important antibacterial properties.
  (BBSRC DTP) Discovery, development and application of novel amine and imine biocatalysts for the synthesis of natural products, their analogues and other privileged motifs
  Dr R Whitehead, Prof N Turner, Prof P Barran
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is a cross-disciplinary project, which combines the complementary research expertise of Professor Nick Turner (biocatalysis), Professor Perdita Barran (mass spectrometry) and Dr Roger Whitehead (organic synthesis/biological chemistry).
  (A*STAR) Engineering pathways to next generation antibiotics
  Prof J Micklefield, Dr A Green
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The provision of new antibiotics to combat antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and to treat neglected tropical diseases (NTD), which are problematic in the developing world, is a major global challenge.
  (BBSRC DTP) Discovery and Editing Pathways to New Antibiotics
  Prof J Micklefield, Prof D Leys, Dr A Green
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is an urgent need for new antibiotics. The majority of antibiotics that are used to treat infectious diseases today are small molecules produced by microorganisms, called natural products, or derivatives thereof.
