  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.

  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.
  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..
  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.
