  PhD in Chemical Biology -- Neuropeptide Research -- University of Vienna
  Prof M Muttenthaler
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neuropeptides are key mediators in many biological functions and understanding their interaction with target proteins is fundamental to unravel the underlying mechanism of diseases.
  Targeting the Gas6-TAM receptor signalling pathway in cancer
  Dr S Hafizi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a self-funded 3 year full-time PhD project, to commence in October 2019 or February 2020. The PhD will be based in the School of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences and will be supervised by Dr Sassan Hafizi.
  Discovery of novel cancer immunotherapeutic agents
  Dr Y Mehellou
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Although cancer therapeutics, mainly chemotherapy and radiotherapy, have been extremely useful in the treatment of cancer, this disease is still associated with high morbidity and mortality.
  Novel Cyclic Peptides for Biomedical Imaging and Therapeutic Targeting
  Prof M Zanda
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cyclic Peptides have a wide range of applications as drugs and diagnostics, and have often higher receptor affinity, metabolic stability and better pharmacokinetic properties compared to their linear counterparts, but their synthesis still presents significant challenges.
  Peptide hydrogels as novel nanotherapeutic delivery agents enhancing the anti-tumour efficacy of radiotherapy
  Dr J Coulter, Dr G Laverty
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is a pressing clinical need for effective localised cancer treatments. Addressing this need we will develop a novel drug delivery system comprised of a nanoparticle/drug releasing hydrogel implant.
  Developing an in silico model of the cutaneous lipidome
  Prof A Nicolaou, Prof R Breitling, Prof T Hussell
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bioactive lipids are key signalling molecules regulating skin health and contributing to the structure and function of the epidermal barrier.

  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.
  Investigation of pharmaceutical crystallisation using small angle x-ray scattering
  Dr Y Chen, Prof J Sefcik
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) offers various ways to characterize nanoscale structures of pharmaceutical crystal and large molecules.
  Nucleation of organic crystals in flows: Discover how organic crystals nucleate and how fluid flows can be used to influence this
  Prof J Sefcik, Dr M Haw
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nucleation is a birth of new crystals.
  Predicting drug solubility in different solvents using molecular simulation and machine learning
  Dr M Jorge, Dr C Price
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Predicting the solubility of complex drug-like molecules is crucial at several stages of the drug discovery and manufacture. In particular, solvent selection has been highlighted as a crucial step in process design and optimisation [1].
  New Routes to Cyclic Sulfoximine 3-D Fragments for Medicinal Chemistry
  Prof P O'Brien
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The sulfoximine functional group is becoming increasingly popular within medicinal chemistry groups – notably, sulfoximines have featured in potential cancer treatments in clinical trials such as AZD6738 developed by AstraZeneca.
