  Activating Carbon Dioxide Utilising Atmospheric Pressure Gas Plasma
  Dr B Buckley, Dr F Iza
Application Deadline: 28 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will be part of the Doctoral Training Centre on Plasma interactions with Liquids. The Buckley group has embarked on a programme of research directed at carbon dioxide utilisation (CDU) and has reported initial efforts in the area.
  Luminescent Anion Receptors for Imaging of Nucleoside Phosphates in Living Cells
  Dr S Butler
Application Deadline: 1 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project involves the synthesis of luminescent receptors for the detection of biologically important anions. These molecules will be applied to monitoring enzyme reactions in real-time, and visualising biochemical processes in living cells.
  Selective Activation of Carbon Dioxide For Organic Synthesis
  Dr B Buckley
Application Deadline: 28 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Buckley group has embarked on a programme of research directed at carbon dioxide utilisation (CDU) and has reported initial efforts in the area.
  Synthesis of Lamellarin alkaloids using a photoredox initiated cyclisation cascade
  Dr M Kimber
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our research group focuses on the synthesis of heterocycles, particularly using singlet oxygen and activation of enamides and allenamides.
  Twisted Aromatic Molecules for Energy Applications
  Dr I Wright
Application Deadline: 1 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This interdisciplinary project will involve the synthesis of twisted polyaromatic hydrocarbons with functionality suitable for organic solar cells and energy storage applications.
  C-H Activation of Cyclopropanes
  Dr G Pritchard
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cyclopropane rings are an important ring system in a number of pharmaceutical drugs. The project will look at C-H activation of cyclopropane rings to make new C-C bonds.
  Iron-Catayzed Cross-Coupling
  Dr G Pritchard
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Carbon-Carbon bond formation is fundamental to synthetic organic chemistry. The project will look at make sp3-Sp1 carbon-carbon bonds using Fe as a metal catalyst.
  Novel Cyclic Peptides for Biomedical Imaging and Therapeutic Targeting
  Prof M Zanda
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cyclic Peptides have a wide range of applications as drugs and diagnostics, and have often higher receptor affinity, metabolic stability and better pharmacokinetic properties compared to their linear counterparts, but their synthesis still presents significant challenges.
  Novel synthetic approaches to antimicrobial natural products and investigations of their bioactivity
  Prof A Malkov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of the project is to develop new highly effective anti-tubercular agents. Previously, it has been established that terpenes isolated from marine organisms possess a number of important antibacterial properties.
  Rapid Synthesis of Fluorinated Drug Scaffolds
  Dr G Weaver
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will involve the synthesis and characterisation of new heterocyclic compounds which can act as core scaffolds for drug development.
