  Catalytic asymmetric methods to make chiral building blocks
  Prof S Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is increasing need within the pharmaceutical and fine chemical sector to develop chemical building blocks that possess different shapes and morphology to those commonly used to construct molecules of biological interest.
  Characterisation and design of heterogeneous catalysts for the petrochemical industry
  Dr M Conte
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The development of novel catalysts for selective oxidation reactions is an area of decisive importance for both industry and academia.
  Chemical probes to investigate mechanisms of bacterial resistance
  Prof S Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antibiotic resistance is seen as a significant threat to modern healthcare, especially in light of an increasing and aging population who will place additional burden on this sector.
  Development and synthesis of zeolites for the conversion of sugars to biofuels and environmental applications
  Dr M Conte
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A promising strategy to replace non-renewable fuel sources, as raw material for energy applications, is to convert renewable biomass into transportation fuels and value-added chemicals.
  Dithizone as a source of unusual nitrogen-rich ligands
  Dr MJ Morris
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is currently much interest in nitrogen-rich ligands both as intriguing species in their own right and as potential high energy density materials.
  Investigating mechanism, reactivity and catalysis in organic, supramolecular and biological chemistry
  Prof NH Williams
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are interested in designing and synthesising organic molecules to investigate the basis of catalysis, and to apply these principles to designing our own, artificial catalysts.

  Live Plants Imaging: investigating signalling and response mechanisms
  Dr A Chauvet
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

To achieve food security, we can improve the efficiency of food production while reducing the use and cost of pesticides. To tackle both challenges, efficiency and cost, we propose to select crop varieties that are more resilient against pests and diseases.
  Machine learning in quantum chemistry - using machine learning to improve the results of quantum chemical calculations
  Dr JG Hill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Machine learning methods have seen a great deal of recent success in a number of technological fields, and these techniques from applied statistics and computer science are poised to change the fields of computational and theoretical quantum chemistry.
  Materials and processes for the abatement and degradation of organic pollutants in water
  Dr M Conte
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The provision of clean water is a global issue with societal, health, and economic implications. An important challenge is the removal of aromatic solvents and chlorinated compounds, which are very frequent pollutants in both industrial and rural areas, and which are highly toxic.
