About the Project

Looking for an opportunity to use your chemistry degree to help those most in need?

Lysosomal Storage Disorders are a group of genetic diseases that affect children, resulting in either death within a few months of birth or severe lifelong illness. Usually, there is no way to treat these unfortunate children. Here is a golden chance for us to make a difference by using chemistry. We have a theory on how to develop an innovative treatment for these children and are looking for a new member to join our team.

We are searching for enthusiastic applicants, with a strong interest in medicinal chemistry, ideally from a background of studying organic chemistry, who speaks Welsh. Our Institute is the ideal place to carry out this exciting research – we have world-leading experts in the field, modern equipment in our state-of-the-art new laboratories and extensive experience in discovering and developing novel treatments with our international collaborators and industrial contacts.

This scholarship is fully funded by the Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol, Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol School of Chemistry School of Chemistry - Cardiff University and the Medicines Discovery Institute (Cardiff University)Medicines Discovery Institute - Cardiff University.

Edrych am gyfle i ddefnyddio’r radd cemeg i wneud gwahaniaeth i fywydau plant sy’n dioddef o salwch?

Mae Clefydau Storio Lysosomal yn grŵp o glefydau genetig sy’n effeithio ar blant ac yn arwain at farwolaeth o fewn ychydig fisoedd o enedigaeth neu salwch difrifol gydol oes. Fel arfer, nid oes modd trin y plant anffodus hyn. Dyma gyfle euraidd i ni wneud gwahaniaeth drwy ddefnyddio cemeg. Mae gennym ddamcaniaeth ar sut i ddatblygu triniaeth arloesol ar eu cyfer ac yn edrych am aelod newydd i ymuno â’r tîm.

Rydym yn chwilio am ymgeiswyr brwdfrydig, sydd â diddordeb cryf mewn cemeg feddyginiaethol, yn ddelfrydol o gefndir astudio cemeg organig sydd yn siarad Cymraeg. Mae’r Sefydliad yn fan perffaith i wneud yr ymchwil cyffrous hwn – mae gennym arbenigwyr yn y maes, offer o’r radd flaenaf yn ein labordai newydd a phrofiad helaeth o ddarganfod a datblygu triniaethau newydd gyda’n cysylltiadau rhyngwladol a’r byd diwydiannol.

Mae’r ysgoloriaeth hon wedi’i hariannu’n llawn gan y Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol Y Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol, yr Ysgol Cemeg Yr Ysgol Cemeg - Prifysgol Caerdydd (cardiff.ac.uk)a’r Sefydliad Darganfod Meddyginiaethau (Prifysgol Caerdydd) Y Sefydliad Darganfod Meddyginiaethau - Prifysgol Caerdydd (cardiff.ac.uk) Mae’r ddoethuriaeth yn un llawn-amser am dair blynedd.

Academic criteria / Cymhwysterau academaidd

Candidates should hold or expect to gain a first class degree or a good 2.1 and/or an appropriate Master’s level qualification (or their equivalent). 

Dyler ymgeiswyr feddu ar neu ddisgwyl feddu ar gradd dosbarth gyntaf neu 2.1 Meistr neu BSc mewn pwnc addas.
