About the Project
This multidisciplinary project brings together expertise in medicinal chemistry (Butterworth), structure-based drug design and enzyme kinetics (Tabernero), and organic chemistry (Procter) to provide new alternative to target an important family of enzymes. The student will benefit from a diverse and enriching environment and will be trained in a number of key core skills in computational chemical biology, synthetic and medicinal chemistry, structural analysis and biochemical assays. These skills will provide the student with a competitive advantage for future professional jobs in academia or industry and to become a research leader.
Candidates are expected to hold (or be about to obtain) a minimum upper second class honours degree (or equivalent) in Computational Sciences, Organic Chemistry or Biochemistry. Candidates with experience in Computational/Medicinal Chemistry or Structural Biology are particularly encouraged to apply.
For international students we also offer a unique 4 year PhD programme that gives you the opportunity to undertake an accredited Teaching Certificate whilst carrying out an independent research project across a range of biological, medical and health sciences.
