  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.
  Discovery of novel pharmaceuticals from marine and desert microorganisms
  Prof M Jaspars, Dr R Ebel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microorganisms from extreme environments such as the deep seas, cold seas and hyper arid deserts have been shown to produce a range of complex natural products with high biological activity.
  Genome mining of novel antimicrobial natural products from new bacterial strains
  Dr H Deng, Prof M Jaspars
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.
  The synthesis and photolysis of photoacid generators used in polymer resists for making silicon chips
  Dr M J Plater, Dr W T A Harrison
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Polymer resists are used as thin films in the manufacture of silicon chips. They are spin coated onto a silicon wafer and irradiated through a pattern in a mask.
  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.
  Study of Anion Exchange Membranes for Renewable Energy Applications
  Dr F Grynszpan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Area of investigation. Green Chemistry and Alternative Energy. Organic Chemistry and Polymer Chemistry. The Project. The main project of the successful candidate will be the design preparation and testing of new anionic membranes for fuel cells.
  Functionalisation of cellulose particles to impart surfactant properties - a project combining organic synthesis and materials chemistry
  Dr J Chen
Application Deadline: 30 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

A fully funded PhD scholarship is currently available for a student with a interest in both organic synthesis and materials chemistry.
  The Productive Merger of the Borrowing Hydrogen Principle with Organocatalysis
  Dr L Morrill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for self-funded students wishing to perform research towards a Ph.D. in synthetic organic chemistry under the supervision of Dr Louis C.
  PhD position in biomaterials
  Prof A Melman, Prof E Katz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

PhD position in the field of biomaterials at Clarkson University (Potsdam NY) is available. The project will involve experimental studies in derivatization of biologically active molecules and biopolymers, and development of new methodologies for their controlled release.
  Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) for energy applications
  Prof M Wriedt
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Wriedt Lab’s research activities are mainly focused at developing new strategies for the design and synthesis of advanced functional solid-state materials from molecular building blocks and advancing the understanding of their structure-property relationship.
  Development of novel nanostructures for the next generation of Fuel Cell vehicles
  Dr E Gkanas
Application Deadline: 8 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

For hydrogen storage applications, Metal Organic Frameworks (MOFs) have been tested due to their high porosity and large surface area (can be used to trap hydrogen molecules).
  Fully-funded PhD positions in several natural sciences & engineering disciplines

Funding Type

PhD Type

Join an internationally renowned scientific community with the Hector FellowPhD program. PhD students benefit not only from the experience of the program, but also from the network of Hector Fellows.
  Syntheses and characterization of compounds of forensic interest using novel methodologies/technologies.
  Dr G Dowling
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The successful candidate will initially characterize new psychoactive substances (NPS) of forensic interest and then investigate the syntheses of these compounds, using microscale procedures, where the material is not isolated or characterized but its identity is deduced from spectral data and through certainty given by the synthetic route chosen.
  Tailored Scale-Bridging Approaches to Computational Nanoscience (DFG RTG 2450)
  Prof M Elstner, Mrs S Holthoff
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The newly founded graduate school ‘Tailored Scale-Bridging Approaches to Computational Nanoscience’ (DFG RTG 2450) addresses the development and application of multi-scale approaches to the scientific challenges of friction, materials aging, material design and biological function.
