  New Knowledge and Tools for Topological Characterisation of the CSD Subset of Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs)
  Dr PZ Moghadam
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are currently recruiting an outstanding PhD candidate for a fully funded studentship at the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at The University of Sheffield in collaboration with the Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre (CCDC) in Cambridge.
  Macromolecules for drug delivery
  Dr L Twyman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We have worked with a number of water soluble polymer systems that are capable of encapsulating and solubilising various hydrophobic drug moieties.
  Oxidative transformations of alkylboronic esters.
  Dr BM Partridge
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Building on work in the Partridge group, this project will explore new oxidative transformations of alkylboronic esters. This work is suitable for ambitious students with a strong interest organic synthesis, and will involve aspects of catalysis, organoboron chemistry, and asymmetric synthesis..
  Synthesis of specific macromolecular ligands for protein binding, recognition and purification.
  Dr L Twyman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Proteins bind and recognise each other using large surface areas. Sensing and recognizing specific proteins is therefore important for a number of applications, including medicine, biology and chemistry.
  Synthesise of new macromolecules for application in photodynamic therapy.
  Dr L Twyman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is an effective and licensed treatment for a number of conditions, including various cancers and certain skin and eye conditions.
  Artificial blood
  Dr L Twyman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inspired by Nature, we have developed a number of macromolecules that can bind a release oxygen. These have included polyfluorinated micelles, polyion complexes and porphyrin cored polymers.
  A Pd-catalysed cyclisation strategy to chiral nitrogen heterocycles
  Prof JPA Harrity
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We have recently devised a novel conjunctive reagent that is generated in the presence of a palladium catalyst, and demonstrated that this can be exploited in the synthesis of chiral heterocyclic products.
  An asymmetric synthesis of atropisomeric functionalised intermediates
  Prof JPA Harrity
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Atropisomers are stereoisomers that occur because of hindered rotation about a single bond, and this leads to two or more conformers that interconvert slowly enough to be isolated as single components.
  Catalytic asymmetric methods to make chiral building blocks
  Prof S Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is increasing need within the pharmaceutical and fine chemical sector to develop chemical building blocks that possess different shapes and morphology to those commonly used to construct molecules of biological interest.
  Chemical probes to investigate mechanisms of bacterial resistance
  Prof S Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antibiotic resistance is seen as a significant threat to modern healthcare, especially in light of an increasing and aging population who will place additional burden on this sector.
  Investigating mechanism, reactivity and catalysis in organic, supramolecular and biological chemistry
  Prof NH Williams
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are interested in designing and synthesising organic molecules to investigate the basis of catalysis, and to apply these principles to designing our own, artificial catalysts.
  Investigating mechanism, reactivity and catalysis in organic, supramolecular and biological chemistry
  Prof NH Williams
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are interested in designing and synthesising organic molecules to investigate the basis of catalysis, and to apply these principles to designing our own, artificial catalysts.
  Microporous polymers for energy and sustainability
  Dr R Dawson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microporous polymers are a class of porous material made from organic building blocks possessing high surface areas and chemical stability.
  Screening of chemical libraries using iPS models for investigating the role of prion protein in Alzheimer’s disease
  Prof B Chen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. AD has been identified as a protein misfolding disease (proteopathy). The disease is caused by accumulation of two major amyloids.
  Synthesis of saturated nitrogen heterocycles and alkaloids by using organolithiums or dipolar cycloaddition chemistry
  Prof I Coldham
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our research group focuses on the synthesis of nitrogen-containing heterocyclic compounds, especially with chiral organometallic compounds and dipolar cycloaddition reactions.
