  FLuoroAromatic-Thiol Tags (FLA-SH Tags) as probes to understand protein folding, interactions and dynamics
  Dr C Coxon
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will explore the design, synthesis and optimisation of a new class of biocompatible cysteine-selective fluorinated probes to study protein conformation, dynamics, interactions, (mis-/un) folding and aggregation in real-time at the single molecule level using 19F NMR.
  PhD in Target-directed synthesis of protein-protein interaction inhibitors
  Dr A Barnard
Application Deadline: 13 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

A fully funded PhD studentship position is available in the group of Dr Anna Barnard in the Department of Chemistry at the White City Campus of Imperial College London.
  PhD in the computational design of organic materials
  Dr Kim Jelfs
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A 36 month PhD position in computational chemistry is available within the research group of Dr.
  Development of low molecular weight organogelators
  Dr J Bear
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Low Molecular Weight Organogelators (LMWOs) are small molecules, which are able to gel organic species through intermolecular supra-assembly.[1-4] This property makes them very useful for oil spill remediation and clean-up, as you can apply the LMWO to floating oil slicks; gel the oil and scoop it out of the water.
  Diffusion Ordered Spectroscopy NMR for the Rapid Identification of Medicinal Plants
  Dr JM Peron, Dr A Le Gresley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Diffusion Ordered Spectroscopy (DOSY) is a nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) technique that is used to analyse mixtures.[1–3] Put simply, NMR signals that overlap in 1D NMR spectra are separated in 2D DOSY spectra according to molecular size and those that belong to the same component align as they are governed by the same diffusion coefficient.
  Magnetic-polymer hydrogels for controlled drug release
  Dr A Perera, Dr N Hill, Prof M Fielder
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This dynamic, multidisciplinary project involves developing a facile technique to fabricate polymer hydrogels incorporated with Fe3O4 magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) for controlled drug delivery applications.
  Synthesis and Anti-Cancer Evaluation of New Heterocyclic Quinones
  Prof F Aldabbagh, Dr N Hill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The group has published on small molecules with specificity towards hypoxic cells associated with solid tumours, reductase enzymes over-expressed in cancer, as well as, aziridines that induce hypersensitivity from Fanconi anaemia cells and those carrying mutations in the BRCA (Breast Cancer Susceptibility) genes.
  Synthesis and Properties of Novel thermoresponsive polymers for water purification
  Dr S Barton, Dr J Barker
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Water is one of the basic necessities required for the sustenance and continuation of life. It is therefore important that supply of good quality water should be available for various activities.
  Synthesis of a toolbox of bioisosteric building blocks for drug discovery
  Dr S Wren
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project involves the preparation of important building blocks that feature bioisosteres (for application in various medicinal chemistry contexts).
  Twisted Aromatic Molecules for Energy Applications
  Dr I Wright
Application Deadline: 1 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This interdisciplinary project will involve the synthesis of twisted polyaromatic hydrocarbons with functionality suitable for organic solar cells and energy storage applications.
