  Exploring parameters that influence resin swelling in sustainable solvents
  Dr A Routledge, Prof M North
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Solid-phase peptide synthesis (SPPS) and solid-phase organic synthesis (SPOS) are key enabling tools in organic chemistry.
  Photochemical Pathways: a Study for Inkjet Applications
  Dr J N Moore, Prof S Duckett
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. UV inkjet printing is a rapidly growing technology in which the UK currently holds an industry leading position. The process involves the deposition of ink droplets followed by UV curing that solidifies the ink on the surface via photo-polymerisation.
  Redox-active twistacenes: putting new twists on pi-electron acceptor design
  Dr A-J Avestro
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Avestro Group seeks a talented and motivated PhD student to carry out a 3-year research project on the development of a new class of functional organic materials based on twisted π-conjugated polyaromatics.
  Responsive biomaterials with tunable self-healing properties
  Dr C Spicer, Prof D K Smith
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The use of biomaterials to regrow or repair damaged biological tissue has the potential to revolutionise how we treat disease.
  Small molecule probes to study human enzymes involved in muscular dystrophy
  Dr L Willems, Dr M A Fascione
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Proteins on the surface of cells are often modified with diverse, complex carbohydrate structures. These carbohydrates, named glycans, play central roles in biology by regulating, for instance, cell recognition and signalling events.
  Spatially-Constrained Hybrid Hydrogels for Tissue Culture
  Prof D K Smith
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Growth of tissue from stem cells is a frontier technology in regenerative medicine. Integral to any such work is the development of effective materials on/in which stem cells can be cultured and allowed to differentiate into target cells.
  Studies on the Total Synthesis of Anthracimycin and Related Natural Products
  Dr P Clarke
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Anthracimycin 1 and chlorotonil A 2 exhibit extremely potent activity as antibiotic agents, while streptosetin A 3 has anti-tumour activity.
  Synthesis of medicinally important macrocycles via Successive ring expansion
  Dr W Unsworth
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Traditionally, medium sized rings and macrocycles are made by forming a chemical bond between the two ‘ends’ of a long linear molecule (A), but competing side reactions and/or dimerisation reactions usually dominate in such processes, leading to inefficient reaction processes.
  The greening of peptide synthesis
  Prof M North
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Peptide synthesis (both solution and solid state) is of fundamental importance to the pharmaceuticals sector. They are therefore expected to play a major role in the future of drug discovery.
  Turning organocatalysts green
  Dr A Routledge, Prof M North
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Organocatalysis (catalysis using organic molecules) fulfils two green chemistry guidelines1 by avoiding the use of rare metals, and by being catalytic.
