  Discovery of small molecules with bactericidal antomycobacterial activity against MDR strains
  Prof A Malkov, Dr G Weaver
Application Deadline: 1 October 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Based on the structure of marine natural products showing some anti-tubercular (bacteriostatic) activity, we identified small molecules that exhibit bactericidal activity against Mycobacterium tuberculosis and other pathogens.
  Activation of Carbon Dioxide to the synthesis of Biologically Relevant Molecules
  Dr B Buckley
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will look at the selective modification of compounds to deliver new/non-natural amino acids/peptides. The approach will use a new carboxylation process developed in our group.
  Synthetic and Mechanistic Studies into Enzymatic Degradation of Waste Plastics
  Dr L Wong, Dr C F Blanford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plastics are a broad range of solid polymeric materials that have found widespread application as industrial components and consumer goods.
  Using nuclear imaging techniques to enhance understanding of dementia
  Dr K Sander
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

UCL Chemistry Department is offering a fully funded studentship to a highly motivated candidate to start in 14 September 2020. Project summary.
  Polymeric Hydrogels for Regenerative Medicine Applications
  Dr P De Bank
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Regenerative medicine aims to repair injured or diseased tissues using a multidisciplinary approach to stimulate natural repair mechanisms or promote healing through the transplantation of cells, often the patient’s own stem cells.
  Investigating the role of DNA structures genetic diseases such as cancer and diabetes (WALLERZU20SF)
  Dr Z Waller, Dr C Morris
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is often assumed that DNA exists only as the iconic Watson-Crick double helix but it can actually adopt many different types of structure depending on the sequence and environmental conditions.
  Precision Medicine DTP - High-Precision Tools for Intraoperative Brain Cancer Surgery
  Research Group: Centre for Inflammation Research
  Dr M Vendrell Escobar, Dr P Brennan, Dr C Portal
Application Deadline: 6 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Glioblastomas are one of the most common and aggressive brain cancers. Current treatments provide a mean survival of 14 months, with most tumours recurring post-resection.
  PhD in Chemistry – Molecular design, chemical synthesis and structural characterisation of novel peptides and peptidomimetics
  Dr A Jamieson
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Peptides derived from natural sources are useful lead compounds to develop therapeutics. The structural diversity of naturally occurring peptides covers a large section of chemical space that sits between more traditional small molecules (.
  PhD in Physics and Astronomy - Quantum optics for chiral molecules; characterisation, detection and separation.
  Prof SM Barnett, Dr J Goette, Dr R Bennett
Application Deadline: 30 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chiral molecules are found across the natural world, for example in the amino acids that make up the building blocks of life.
  PhD in Physics and Astronomy - Quantum optics for chiral molecules; characterisation, detection and separation.

  PhD Studentship – Supramolecular Organic Chemistry
  Dr B Pilgrim
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Pilgrim Group at the University of Nottingham is looking to recruit an enthusiastic and talented PhD candidate to join our research team.
  Neuropeptide Research - PhD Opportunity at a World Class Institution
  Assoc Prof M Muttenthaler, Assoc Prof I Vetter
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are seeking talented and highly motivated PhD candidates for the following multidisciplinary project. Neuropeptides are key mediators in many biological functions and understanding their interaction with target proteins is fundamental to unravel the underlying mechanism of diseases.
  A Pd-catalysed cyclisation strategy to chiral nitrogen heterocycles
  Prof JPA Harrity
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We have recently devised a novel conjunctive reagent that is generated in the presence of a palladium catalyst, and demonstrated that this can be exploited in the synthesis of chiral heterocyclic products.
  An asymmetric synthesis of atropisomeric functionalised intermediates
  Prof JPA Harrity
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Atropisomers are stereoisomers that occur because of hindered rotation about a single bond, and this leads to two or more conformers that interconvert slowly enough to be isolated as single components.
  Glass Surface Interactions in Hollow Core Fibres
  Research Group: Photonic Systems Circuits & Sensors
  Dr N Wheeler
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Dr Natalie Wheeler. Co-supervisor Dr Yong Chen. Project description. We are looking for a new PhD student with a background in chemistry, materials science and/ or physics to join us to study the surface chemistry of thin glass membranes in hollow core fibres (HCFs).
