  Genome mining of novel antimicrobial and antiviral natural products from new bacterial strains
  Dr H Deng, Dr R Ebel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is rising to dangerously high levels in all parts of the world. In Europe alone, drug-resistant bacteria are estimated to cause 25,000 deaths annually and cost more than US$1.5 billion every year in healthcare expenses and productivity losses.
  Development of antiviral peptidomimetic enzyme inhibitors
  Dr L Trembleau, Dr H Deng
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Coronaviruses are a large group of viruses that circulate and evolve among various animals. They can cause mild human illnesses such as the common cold or more serious respiratory diseases as seen in the recent outbreaks of SARS (2002), MERS (2012), and COVID-19 (2019).
  Discovery of novel pharmaceuticals from marine and desert microorganisms
  Prof M Jaspars, Dr R Ebel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

  Addressing the challenge of air pollution: Novel measurements of particulate matter and gaseous air pollutants in the UK and South Asia
  Dr C Di Marco, Dr M Twigg, Dr Z Shi, Dr E Nemitz
Application Deadline: 5 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Overview. Air pollution is of concern for human health and the environment. To mitigate air pollution it is necessary to first identify and quantify the sources of air pollutants, as well as understand their fate in terms of chemical transformations in the atmosphere and their deposition to ecosystems.
  Using nuclear imaging techniques to enhance understanding of dementia
  Dr K Sander
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

UCL Chemistry Department is offering a fully funded studentship to a highly motivated candidate to start in 14 September 2020. Project summary.
  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.
  Screening of chemical libraries using iPS models for investigating the role of prion protein in Alzheimer’s disease
  Prof B Chen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. AD has been identified as a protein misfolding disease (proteopathy). The disease is caused by accumulation of two major amyloids.

  PhD in Chemical Biology -- Neuropeptide Research -- University of Vienna
  Prof M Muttenthaler
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neuropeptides are key mediators in many biological functions and understanding their interaction with target proteins is fundamental to unravel the underlying mechanism of diseases.
  Nanoscale material discovery for thermoelectric energy harvesting and cooling
  Dr H Sadeghi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to exploit electronic and vibrational properties of nanoscale materials that are 1000 times smaller than diameter of a human hair to discover new materials for energy harvesting and cooling in consumer electronics such as mobile phones and laptops.
