  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 Chemistry- Total Synthesis of Bioactive Marine Natural Products
  Prof S Clark
Application Deadline: 27 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Suitably qualified and highly motivated candidates are invited to apply for a fully-funded 3.5-year PhD studentship (EPSRC DTA) which will commence on 1st October 2020 under the direction of Professor Stephen Clark in the School of Chemistry at the University of Glasgow.
  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.
  Inorganic approaches to 18F-based positron emission tomography (PET) imaging applications
  Prof G Reid
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Professors Gill Reid. Co-supervisor Bill Levason. Project description. Applications are invited from suitably qualified candidates for a PhD studentship based in the School of Chemistry at the University of Southampton.
  Cascade Photoredox Reactions of Strained, Two Carbon Building-Blocks: One-Pot Synthesis of Complex, Bioactive Molecules (Ref: SF20/APP/KNOWLES)
  Dr J Knowles
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Developing access to new molecules is a key objective for chemists, particularly to three-dimensional, sp3-rich compounds which show improved bioactivity compared with flatter structures favoured by recent strategies within the pharmaceutical sector.
  Development of magnetic nanoparticles for improved targeted delivery of growth factors
  Dr V Chechik
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) can be heated by applying oscillating magnetic field. MNPs can hence be used to thermally destroy biological tissue (e.g., cancer cells) by remote magnetic activation.
  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.
  Nutrient-Mediated Delivery of ‘Dual Warhead’ Antimicrobials
  Dr A Routledge, Prof A-K Duhme-Klair
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microbial resistance to antibiotics is a growing problem. Until recently, antibiotics of the fluoroquinolone-type provided some of the most active broad-spectrum antibacterial agents on the market.
  Observing Nucleic Acid Aptamer Binding with Ultrafast 2D-IR Spectroscopy
  Prof N Hunt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will be a collaboration with Prof Glenn Burley (University of Strathclyde). Background. The strong and specific binding of small molecules and proteins to DNA has relevance across many areas, from fundamental biophysics, through chemical biology to nanotechnology.
