  Synthesis of Lamellarin alkaloids using a photoredox initiated cyclisation cascade
  Dr M Kimber
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our research group focuses on the synthesis of heterocycles, particularly using singlet oxygen and activation of enamides and allenamides.
  Expanding the Genetic Code of a Synthetic Yeast
  Prof P Cai, Dr A Green
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The proposed project aims to develop an efficient yeast-based protein expression platform with an expanded genetic code. The standard genetic code of natural organisms comprises 20 canonical amino acids.
  Targeting the cancer – approaches to the design and synthesis of new anti-cancer agents (SEARCEYMU20SCIPVC)
  Prof M Searcey, Dr A Beekman
Application Deadline: 17 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The last few years have seen the introduction to the clinic of antibody-drug conjugates or ADCs that have revolutionised the treatment of some cancers.1 They enable the targeting of highly potent molecules to their site of action- the tumour cell – so that side effects should be diminished as off target effects are reduced.
  Investigating mechanism, reactivity and catalysis in organic, supramolecular and biological chemistry
  Prof NH Williams
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are interested in designing and synthesising organic molecules to investigate the basis of catalysis, and to apply these principles to designing our own, artificial catalysts.

  PhD in Enantioselective Catalysis and mechanistic studies
  Dr A Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our research is currently directed towards developing catalytic methods for the promotion of a range of synthetic transformations with varying applications in enantioselective catalysis.
  Studies on the Total Synthesis of Streptosetin A
  Dr P Clarke
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Streptosetin A has anti-tumour activity and contains a decalin ring system and a tetramic acid group, which are non-trivial to construct.
  Chemo-enzymatic Synthesis and Potential Applications of Novel Heterocyclic Alkaloids
  Dr H Deng, Dr L Trembleau
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.
  Developing an enzymatic toolbox to make complex modified peptides
  Prof M Jaspars, Dr W Houssen, Dr L Trembleau
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The pharmaceutical industry has identified a major gap in its portfolio. On the one hand, they are excellent at discovering small molecules that act via a lock and key type mechanism.
  Biogas upgrading by means of cyclic adsorption processes
  Dr C Fernandez-Martin, Dr D Dionisi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Global warming is one of the most worldwide current challenges facing humanity, a direct consequence of the increasing CO2 emissions generated from the combustion of fossil fuels.
