  Magnetic-polymer hydrogels for controlled drug release
  Dr A Perera, Dr N Hill, Prof M Fielder
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This dynamic, multidisciplinary project involves developing a facile technique to fabricate polymer hydrogels incorporated with Fe3O4 magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) for controlled drug delivery applications.
  Towards artificial signal transduction in living cells
  Dr S Webb
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The development of synthetic molecules able to transmit biochemical information across phospholipid bilayers could lead to a new type of synthetic biology, where the introduction of orthogonal signalling pathways leads to ‘short-circuiting’ of natural signalling networks in cells.
  Molecular machines that “read” and “write”
  Dr S Webb
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A key feature of biological systems is the storage and transmission of information, which maintains the complex chemical networks and functions within cells.
  Asymmetric Clip-Cycle Reactions of Cyclic Amines
  Dr P Clarke
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Cyclic amines are privileged pharmacophores present in many drug molecules and biologically active natural products, with the 5- and 6-membered rings by far and away the most prevalent.
  Brønsted Acid Catalysed Asymmetric Synthesis of Cyclic Ethers
  Dr P Clarke
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over recent years there has been a drive by medicinal chemists to explore more 3-dimensional areas of chemical space. Cyclic ethers, such as the tetrahydropyran (THP) and the tetrahydrofuran (THF) rings, are the most common and 6th most common saturated heterocyclic function present in marketed pharmaceuticals.
  Decision making through artificial chemical intelligence
  Dr J Slattery, Prof I J S Fairlamb
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Automation will transform the chemical landscape. Powerful robotic platforms can perform reactions or analyses much more rapidly than traditional approaches.1 Ever faster computers allow huge numbers of molecules to be studied in an automated way using computational chemistry.
  Exploring parameters that influence resin swelling in sustainable solvents
  Dr A Routledge, Prof M North
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Solid-phase peptide synthesis (SPPS) and solid-phase organic synthesis (SPOS) are key enabling tools in organic chemistry.
  Redox-active twistacenes: putting new twists on pi-electron acceptor design
  Dr A-J Avestro
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Avestro Group seeks a talented and motivated PhD student to carry out a 3-year research project on the development of a new class of functional organic materials based on twisted π-conjugated polyaromatics.
  Studies on the Total Synthesis of Anthracimycin and Related Natural Products
  Dr P Clarke
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Anthracimycin 1 and chlorotonil A 2 exhibit extremely potent activity as antibiotic agents, while streptosetin A 3 has anti-tumour activity.
  Turning organocatalysts green
  Dr A Routledge, Prof M North
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Organocatalysis (catalysis using organic molecules) fulfils two green chemistry guidelines1 by avoiding the use of rare metals, and by being catalytic.
