  Interactions between Mercury’s surface and its dynamic space environment
  Prof T Yeoman
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mercury is a unique body in the solar system in that its interaction with the interplanetary medium is via a magnetised body without any atmosphere or conducting ionosphere (the moon Ganymede, within the magnetosphere of Jupiter, is the closest analogue).
  Magnetospheric dynamics at Jupiter
  Dr J Nichols, Dr T Stallard
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Jupiter possesses the strongest magnetic field and brightest auroras in the solar system. The dynamics of Jupiter’s magnetosphere are dominated by the planet’s rotation, rather than the interaction with the solar wind as at Earth.
  Deciphering acetaldehyde biochemistry using small molecule tools: from hangovers to cancer (GTA 20 HOP)
  Dr J Hodgkinson, Dr S Handa
Application Deadline: 4 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Acetaldehyde, the first product of ethanol metabolism, is a human toxin and carcinogen. Many of the intoxicating and disease-inducing effects of drinking alcohol, as well as the symptoms of hangovers, are likely due to acetaldehyde.
  Developing an Approach for Measuring the Impact of Curriculum Interventions in Chemistry (GTA 20 WIL)
  Dr D Williams, Dr R Blackburn
Application Deadline: 4 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The recent rise in the number of teaching dominant/focussed positions across the sector and the increased strategic importance of pedagogy in the lead up to the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) has resulted in an increase in educational innovation and curriculum redevelopments in the chemical sciences.
  Innovative Enantioselective Methodology for Novel (GTA 20 STU)
  Dr A Stuart, Dr A Pulis
Application Deadline: 4 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

An important strategy in the development of new pharmaceutical products is the incorporation of fluorine because of its beneficial influence on the metabolic…
  Metal-mediated acceptorless dehydrogenation as a route to high-added value products (GTA 20 SOL)
  Dr G A Solan, Dr F Ortu
Application Deadline: 4 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The development of new sustainable catalytic systems based on earth abundant metals for fundamentally significant synthetic transformations represents a major objective in modern chemical research at both the academic and industrial level.
  New Strategies for Chemical Synthesis via Frustrated Molecules (GTA 20 PUL)
  Dr A Pulis, Dr A Stuart
Application Deadline: 4 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Like building a house from bricks and mortar, molecular synthesis is the construction of new chemical entities from other molecules.
  Probing the Chemical Space of Heterobifunctional Molecules Targeting the Epigenome (GTA 20 HOD)
  Dr J Hodgkinson, Dr S Cowley
Application Deadline: 4 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The development of new chemical tools and probes is vital to understanding the functions of multifaceted proteins and enzymes in the cell and their role in disease.
  Rare Earth organometallic reagents for C-H activation chemistry (GTA 20 ORT)
  Dr F Ortu, Dr A Pulis
Application Deadline: 4 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Electrophilic Aromatic Substitution (EAS) reactions are one of the pillars of organic synthesis and are widely used to functionalise arenes.
  Unravelling quantised vortices in nanoscale quantum fluid (GTA 20 YAN)
  Dr S Yang, Prof A M Ellis
Application Deadline: 4 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Helium nanodroplets (HeNDs) are ideal model systems for exploring quantum hydrodynamics in self-contained, isolated superfluids at the nanoscale.
