  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.
  Exploring the synthesis and biological value of natural product-inspired compounds
  Dr D Foley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Key words. natural products; organic synthesis; medicinal chemistry; drug discovery. Motivated international and New Zealand-based candidates are invited to apply for a University of Canterbury Doctoral Scholarship to investigate the synthesis and biological value of natural product-inspired compound collections.
  Development of new catalytic methods for the efficient construction of natural product-inspired 3D scaffolds
  Prof C J Hayes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project aims to develop new catalytic synthetic methods for the efficient construction of natural product-inspired 3D scaffolds.
  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.
  PhD in Chemistry- Total Synthesis of Bioactive Marine Natural Products
  Prof S Clark
Application Deadline: 27 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Suitably qualified and highly motivated candidates are invited to apply for a fully-funded 3.5-year PhD studentship (EPSRC DTA) which will commence on 1st October 2020 under the direction of Professor Stephen Clark in the School of Chemistry at the University of Glasgow.
  Elucidating plant alkaloid biosynthesis
  Dr B R Lichman, Dr W Unsworth
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants are capable of forming complex natural products from simple starting materials. Many of these natural products are bioactive, but access is limited as they are difficult to synthesise using organic chemistry and are present in small quantities in the natural source.
  Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning for Natural Sciences
  Prof P Friederich
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The recently founded AIMat group at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) is searching for motivated students with a above-average Masters degree in computer science or (computational) natural sciences.
  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.
  PhD in Chemistry - Tissue-like hydrogels based on Carbon Nitride
  Dr B V K J Schmidt
Application Deadline: 10 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bright, highly motivated candidates are invited to apply for a fully funded 3.5 year PhD position in the School of Chemistry, available to commence on 1st October 2020 in the Schmidt research group at the University of Glasgow.
  Unravelling the mysteries of retinoid signalling
  Dr E Pohl, Prof J Endicott
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Retinoids, such as all-trans-retinoic acid (ATRA), are a class of endogenous molecules derived from Vitamin A. These compounds control a wide range of cellular processes in chordates, including differentiation, proliferation and apoptosis, by binding one or more of related transcriptional receptors in the cell nucleus.
  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.
