  EPSRC CDT in Bioprocess Engineering Leadership: Complex Biological Products Manufacture

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biological products and their manufacture are progressing to unparalleled levels of complexity. Examples include engineered biocatalysts, antibody-drug conjugates, multivalent vaccines and cellular therapies.
  Developing ‘smart’ dosage systems for better pharmacotherapy
  Dr F Brako, Dr M Casely-Hayford
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Candidates are welcome to apply for a PhD studentship starting in September 2020 at the Medway School of Pharmacy. This position is fully funded by the University of Kent Vice Chancellor’s Research Scholarship scheme.
  Nanotechnologies for cancer: developing new polymer-drug conjugates for the treatment of a range of cancers
  Dr F Greco, Prof H Osborn
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Polymer anticancer-drug conjugates are drug delivery systems in which a low molecular weight anticancer agent is covalently conjugated to a water-soluble polymeric carrier.
  Raman and Fluorescence Signals for Clinical Optical Imaging
  Dr R.K Henderson, Dr N Finlayson
Application Deadline: 30 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The EPSRC IRC Proteus (Proteus) - Multiplexed ’Touch and Tell’ Optical Molecular Sensing and Imaging - Lifetime and Beyond” is an Interdisciplinary Research Collaboration between the Universities of Edinburgh, Bath, Heriot Watt, Durham and Dundee.
  Carbohydrate analysis for biomedical applications.
  Dr S Allman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Changes in the patterns of carbohydrates produced by the cell can provide insights into disease states, revealing perturbations and differences in cellular metabolic processes.
  Cationic antimicrobial peptides as anticancer agents
  Dr R Green, Prof R A Frazier
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cationic peptides are widespread in nature where they play a key role in host defense within plants and animals. The mechanism by which these peptides interact with cell membranes potentially leads to these being less prone to antimicrobial resistance than conventional antibiotics.
  Design and synthesis of novel, targeted, anti-cancer agents
  Prof H Osborn, Dr F Greco
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the major problems of cancer chemotherapy is that the drugs used have poor selectivities for cancer cells and cause damage to normal cells and organs.
  Continuous Manufacturing with Carbon Nanoreactor Supported Nanoparticle Catalysts for the Self-Optimisation of Heterogenous Reduction Reactions
  Dr T Chamberlain, Dr R Bourne
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. This industrially sponsored project, between Dr Thomas Chamberlain and Dr Richard Bourne (University of Leeds) and Dr Kevin Leslie and Dr Graeme Clemens (Process Chemistry at AstraZeneca), will enable high throughput, flow hydrogenation at scale enabling robust, continuous manufacture.
  Designing novel composite polysaccharide nanoparticles for combined diagnosis and treatment of cancers
  Dr E Barbu, Dr A Lalatsa
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer continues to impose a vast burden with regard to financial costs as well as human suffering but the progress in its treatment is hindered by the limited selectivity and significant side-effects that the current chemotherapy demonstrates, representing a major challenge for modern drug delivery.
  PhD in Chemistry - Spectroscopic investigations of physico-chemical aspects of healthcare
  Dr D Lennon
Application Deadline: 30 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Johnson Matthey is a leading FT 100 speciality chemicals company and a global leader in advanced materials in diverse areas from catalysis and Li-ion batteries to pharmaceuticals and advanced packaging.
  It’s all in the Structure: Transforming drug design by bringing together molecular simulations and machine learning
  Dr G.C. Sosso
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The solubility of pharmaceutical drugs determines to what extent they can be absorbed. Machine learning algorithms can predict the solubility of novel drugs without the need of actually synthetizing them - thus saving substantial time and money.
  Carbon nanotubes in the boron neutron capture therapy of cancer
  Dr G Calabrese
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The early promise of boron neutron capture therapy as a method for the treatment of brain cancer has been mainly inhibited by the inherent toxicity associated with 10B-containing pharmacophores and the need for the ability to cross biological membranes.
  Responsive hydrogel platforms towards the prevention of medical device-associated infections
  Dr N Irwin, Dr C McCoy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Catheter-associated urinary tract infections represent a high priority global healthcare challenge. We have recently identified a suite of non-antibiotic active agents with promising antibacterial and anti-encrustation activities.
  Electrochemically Driven Deoxydehydration Reactions
  Dr J Taylor
Application Deadline: 23 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD position is available to work with Dr James Taylor at the University of Bath on a project focused on the development of new catalytic processes for the deoxydehydration of diols using modern electrosynthetic technology.
  PhD in Chemistry: Novel drug carriers based on an amylose-mimicking polymer
  Dr B V K J Schmidt, Dr J Prunet
Application Deadline: 10 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are recruiting a PhD student in polymer/synthetic organic chemistry for a start in October 2020 under the joint supervision of Dr.
