Showing 1 to 10 of 19
  Manganese-catalysed C-H functionalization of aromatic molecules
  Prof I Larrosa, Dr J Bures
Applications accepted all year round
C-H activation is en route to dramatically alter the way chemists make organic molecules with spectacular achievements over the last half decade.
  Development of Novel Photoinduced Methods for the Assembly of Nitrogen-Containing Molecules
  Dr D Leonori
Application Deadline: 1 April 2019
A PhD studentship is available at the University of Manchester, in the School of Chemistry, to work with Dr Daniele Leonori on a project in the area of photoredox catalysis and asymmetric synthesis, starting in October 2019.
  Fluorinated NHC ligands – predisposing metal complexes as better catalysts.
  Dr A Brisdon, Prof I Larrosa
Application Deadline: 25 February 2019
An EPSRC DTA funded 42 month PhD Studentship is available for an outstanding chemist to work on the synthesis, characterisation and catalytic applications of fluorinated NHC ligands and their complexes within the School of Chemistry in Manchester.
  (WIS) The role of IL1 and inflammasome activation in behavioural manifestations in neurological lysosomal disease progression
  Dr B BIgger, Dr D Brough
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
Childhood dementia is a hallmark of around 2/3 of pediatric lysosomal storage disorders, together having a frequency of around 1/5500 live births.
  FAUST: Foldamers As Unnatural Signal Transducers
  Dr S Webb, Dr J Burthem
Application Deadline: 12 April 2019
The cell membrane not only defines a cell but also acts as a protective barrier, which means that cells must use specialised transmembrane proteins in their membranes to communicate with the world around them.
  Synthetic and Mechanistic Studies into Enzymatic Degradation of Waste Plastics
  Dr L Wong, Dr C F Blanford
Application Deadline: 1 April 2019
Applications are invited for an EPSRC-funded PhD studentship in the general area of biological chemistry. Plastics are a broad range of solid polymeric materials that have found widespread application as industrial components and consumer goods.
  Synthesis of ribonucleosides using biocatalytic cascades
  Prof N Turner, Prof S Flitsch
Applications accepted all year round
Background – Current state of the art for the synthesis of Anti-Sense Oligonucleotides employs solid phase synthesis. The ASOs are assembled from individual ribonucleotides which themselves are often requiring complicated multistep routes to prepare.
  Development of engineered reductive aminases (RedAms) for the regio- and enantioselective reductive amination of diamines with aldehydes
  Prof N Turner, Prof S Flitsch
Applications accepted all year round
Background – AstraZeneca has provided a set of real world targets for demonstration of the benefits of biocatalysis in synthetic strategies.
  Development of engineered carboxylic acid reductases (CARs) for efficient synthesis of amides from amines and carboxylic acids
  Prof N Turner, Prof S Flitsch
Applications accepted all year round
Background – AstraZeneca has provided a set of real world targets for demonstration of the benefits of biocatalysis in synthetic strategies.
  Selective bio-conjugation of chemical probes to new modalities using acylases as biocatalysts
  Prof S Flitsch, Prof P Barran
Applications accepted all year round
Background – A key challenge in the production of bioconjugates is linker chemistry, which needs to fulfil a number of criteria to be useful for industrial applications.
