  Chemo-enzymatic Synthesis and Potential Applications of Novel Heterocyclic Alkaloids
  Dr H Deng, Dr L Trembleau
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is rising to dangerously high levels in all parts of the world. In Europe alone, drug-resistant bacteria are estimated to cause 25,000 deaths annually and cost more than US$1.5 billion every year in healthcare expenses and productivity losses.
  Developing an enzymatic toolbox to make complex modified peptides
  Prof M Jaspars, Dr W Houssen, Dr L Trembleau
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The pharmaceutical industry has identified a major gap in its portfolio. On the one hand, they are excellent at discovering small molecules that act via a lock and key type mechanism.
  Genome mining of novel antimicrobial natural products from new bacterial strains
  Dr H Deng, Prof M Jaspars
Applications accepted all year round

  The synthesis and photolysis of photoacid generators used in polymer resists for making silicon chips
  Dr M J Plater, Dr W T A Harrison
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Polymer resists are used as thin films in the manufacture of silicon chips. They are spin coated onto a silicon wafer and irradiated through a pattern in a mask.
  Development of cutting-edge microporous adsorbents for gas separation processes
  Dr C Fernandez-Martin, Dr A Majumder
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Developing cost-effective adsorbents aiming at separating impurities from different gas mixtures is a real and necessary challenge for the industry, especially the energy sector.
  High Power Renewable Energy Nano Catalysis – Fundamental and Applied Electrochemistry
  Prof A Schechter
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The development of a low-cost, high-performance fuel cell is hindered by the lack of an active and electrocatalysts at the anode and cathode.
  Functionalisation of cellulose particles to impart surfactant properties - a project combining organic synthesis and materials chemistry

  PhD position in biomaterials
  Prof A Melman, Prof E Katz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

PhD position in the field of biomaterials at Clarkson University (Potsdam NY) is available. The project will involve experimental studies in derivatization of biologically active molecules and biopolymers, and development of new methodologies for their controlled release.
  Development of novel nanostructures for the next generation of Fuel Cell vehicles
  Dr E Gkanas
Application Deadline: 8 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

For hydrogen storage applications, Metal Organic Frameworks (MOFs) have been tested due to their high porosity and large surface area (can be used to trap hydrogen molecules).
