  Organic electrosynthesis
  Dr J Sperry
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The field of chemical synthesis is under constant pressure to produce molecules in a timely, economical and sustainable fashion. In this project we will demonstrate that valuable heterocyclic molecules can be efficiently synthesized in an environmentally friendly manner by simply using electric current.
  Tyrosine kinase inhibitors conjugated tumour targeting dyes for the treatment of glioblastoma.
  Dr J Jose, Dr P Choi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Glioblastoma (GBM) remains a lethal and difficult to treat cancer with a dismal outcome. Although we have a better understanding of the disease progression, a concurrent increase in therapeutic intervention is lagging.
  Funded PhD studentship: Airborne microplastics in New Zealand
  Dr L Revell, Assoc Prof S Gaw
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microplastics are ubiquitous contaminants in aquatic and terrestrial environments, and have recently been discovered in the atmosphere in several megacities and remote locations throughout the Northern Hemisphere.
  Natural product-inspired fragments
  Dr D Foley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Key words. drug discovery; natural products; medicinal chemistry. Motivated international and New Zealand-based candidates are invited to apply for a PhD Scholarship to investigate the synthesis and biological evaluation of a natural product-inspired fragment collection.
  Synthesis of Carbon-rich Molecular Materials
  Dr N Lucas
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

New carbon-rich molecular materials, based on well-defined nanographenes and other novel polyaromatic architectures, will be rationally synthesised to better understand structure-property relationships.
  Development of chemical tools to interrogate cannabinoid receptors
  Dr A Vernall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Suitable for an international or New Zealand candidate to work on the design and synthesis of small molecules and chemical tools to study cannabinoid type 2 receptors.
  PhD Scholarship Biopolymers for tissue repair
  Dr SFR Hinkley, Dr S Carnachan
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Ferrier Research Institute has a full scholarship to undertake a PhD programme working on biopolymer isolation and complex carbohydrate analysis.
  Rational design and synthesis of novel pharmacological chaperones to treat Krabbe disease
  Dr F. Lamiable-Oulaidi, Dr S Cameron
Application Deadline: 1 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chaperone-mediated therapy (CMT) is an exciting new strategy to rescue partially-defective enzymes using small molecules called pharmacological chaperones (PCs).
  Discovery and characterisation of new antibiotics from uncultivated microbes.
  Dr J Owen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent developments in DNA sequencing technology have greatly enriched our understanding of the microbial world. By directly sequencing DNA extracted from communities of environmental microbes, we have been able to observe a hidden majority of microbial species that cannot be readily grown in the laboratory.
