  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.
  Towards the next generation of polymers
  Dr E Leitao
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Carbon-based polymers are ubiquitous. From textiles, to electronics, to packaging, to banknotes, to structural materials, we see and use these daily.
  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.
  Natural product-inspired fragments
  Dr D Foley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Key words. drug discovery; natural products; medicinal chemistry; organic synthesis. 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.
  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).
