PhD in Chemistry: Chemical synthesis and biological evaluation of conotoxin peptides

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 (. Read more

PhD in Chemistry – Metal-Templated Self-Assembly of Peptide-Based Knots and Catenanes

Bright, highly motivated candidates are invited to apply for a fully funded 3.5 year PhD position in the School of Chemistry, available to commence on 1st October 2021 as part of a collaboration between the Forgan and Thomson research groups at the University of Glasgow. Read more

PhD in Chemistry - Functional Protein Ligation Junctions

We have recently developed novel beta turn mimics. See ‘Beta Turn Mimics by Chemical Ligation, Organic Letters, 2020, 22, 11, 4424–4428. These are installed through a chemical ligation procedure, allowing us to join together two protein fragments at the same time as installing the turn mimic.

Chemical probes for the study of carbohydrate-active enzymes

Background. Carbohydrates play many roles in cells from all kingdoms of life. In addition to their well-known role as an energy source, they also have important functions in, for example, communication between cells, cell-pathogen interactions, intracellular signalling, and maintaining a stable cellular environment.

EPSRC and SFI CDT in Sustainable Chemistry Atoms-2-Products: An Integrated Approach Fully funded 48-month PhD studentships

The EPSRC and SFI Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Sustainable Chemistry. Atoms-2-Products, would like to invite suitably qualified and highly motivated applicants to apply for 48-month PhD studentships to work in the following research area. Read more

Sustainable Polymer Synthesis and Circularity

The Sustainable Materials Innovation Hub, led by Prof. Michael Shaver, seeks an enthusiastic chemistry graduate to join a dynamic and diverse team of researchers tackling challenges in plastics sustainability and circularity. Read more

Raman microscopy for microplastic discrimination and detection of single cell adulteration

A fully funded PhD studentship in the area of Raman spectroscopy and single cell analysis is available under the supervision of Dr Lorna Ashton in the Department of Chemistry, Lancaster University. Read more

Amphiphile-induced frustration in liquid crystals

Amphiphilic compounds self-organise so that the incompatible parts of the molecule are separated from one another (e.g. micelles); the exact same principle holds for liquid crystals (LCs). Read more

Electrochemical Modification of Copper Electrodes for Carbon Dioxide Electro-Reduction

Background. Electrochemical reduction of carbon dioxide at a copper surface, the carbon dioxide reduction reaction (CO2RR), is a potentially sustainable and scalable method of converting carbon dioxide into valuable molecules and delivering a low carbon future. Read more

Nutrient-Mediated Delivery of ‘Dual Warhead’ Antimicrobials

Background. Microbial resistance to antibiotics is a growing problem. Until recently, antibiotics of the fluoroquinolone-type provided some of the most active broad-spectrum antibacterial agents on the market. Read more
