  PhD in Chemical Biology -- Neuropeptide Research -- University of Vienna
  Prof M Muttenthaler
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neuropeptides are key mediators in many biological functions and understanding their interaction with target proteins is fundamental to unravel the underlying mechanism of diseases.
  Development of chemical biology tools to study mammalian O-mannosylation pathways
  Dr L Willems, Prof G Davies
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The field of chemical biology aims to design and synthesize chemical tools (such as inhibitors, substrate mimics, or enzyme probes) to answer fundamental questions in biology.
  The chemical glycobiology of carbohydrate metabolism
  Prof R Field, Prof S Flitsch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Carbohydrates are widespread in nature and fulfil many important biological functions. However, the biology of carbohydrates is much less well explored than that of nucleic acids and proteins.

  PhD inChemistry - Protein structural mimics through chemical ligation
  Dr D Thomson
Application Deadline: 1 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project targets the interface between chemistry and biology. Chemistry has provided many reactions that can be used to join complex molecules together, these ‘ligation’ reactions are useful, but often leave behind chemical functionality that serves no purpose other than to connect fragments together.
  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 (.
  Nanotechnologies for cancer: developing new polymer-drug conjugates for the treatment of a range of cancers
  Dr F Greco, Prof H Osborn
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Polymer anticancer-drug conjugates are drug delivery systems in which a low molecular weight anticancer agent is covalently conjugated to a water-soluble polymeric carrier.
  Developing chemical probes to distinguish CDK4-cyclin D
  Prof J Endicott
Application Deadline: 15 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Number of awards. 1. Start date and duration. October 2020 for four years. Overview. CDK4/6 inhibitors have been approved to treat hormone responsive/HER2 negative breast cancer.
  4 year funded PhD Studentship: Electrocatalytically active carbon nanoreactors for hydrogen production & utilisation
  Prof E Besley, Dr J Alves Fernandes, Prof A Khlobystov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited to undertake a 4 year EPSRC funded CDT PhD studentship at the University of Nottingham. The successful applicant will join the new Centre of Doctoral Training (CDT) in Sustainable Hydrogen.
  Informing the valorisation of lignin for sustainable chemical feedstocks by lignin radical chemistry
  Dr B E Bode, Dr N.J. Westwood
Application Deadline: 13 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lignin is a complex biopolymer that has attracted increasing attention as a potential renewable feedstock for low molecular weight chemicals.
