PhD Studentships Imperial College London

Location: United Kingdom

Imperial College are inviting applications for a three PhD positions to join an exciting new Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) Prosperity Partnership between Imperial, UCL and Eli Lilly on Transforming synthetic drug manufacturing: novel processes, methods and tools.  This multi million pound partnership over five years combines expertise from academia and the pharmaceutical industry to develop novel processes, methods and tools to significantly reduce the time and cost of producing new drugs,speeding up new treatments for patients for a range of conditions.

 

This is an exciting opportunity for outstanding candidates to join a highly prestigious programme and work with Eli Lilly to deliver research outcomes which aim to break down barriers to the cost and time-effective manufacturing of synthetic drugs.

 

The PhD topic areas are:

 

(i) Solubility and Crystallisation of Peptides supervised by Dr Jerry Heng

(ii) Developing Novel Formulations for the Delivery of Peptide Therapeutics supervised by Professor Daryl Williams

(iii) Fundamentals of the Chromatographic Separation Processes of Peptide Therapeutics supervised by Professor Daryl Williams

All successful PhD candidates will need to possess, or expect to obtain, a First Class Honours degree at Master’s level (or equivalent) in chemical engineering, another branch of engineering or a related science.    

 

PhD studentships cover tuition fees and an annual stipend of £17,009 for 42 months, starting no later than October 2020.

 

Residence eligibility guidance

 

Please refer to the EPSRC studenteligibility webpages  for full details, and see below for the residence eligibility criteria.

 

To be eligible for an award a student must fulfil all the following criteria:

 

Have settled status in the UK, meaning they have no restrictions on how long they can stay.

Been ‘ordinarily resident’ in the UK for three years prior to the start of the studentship. This means they must have been normally residing in the UK (apart from temporary or occasional absences).

Have not been residing in the UK wholly or mainly for the purpose of full-time education (this does not apply to UK or EU nationals).

Note: In exceptional circumstances, in order to attract the very best international students to increase our global presence and influence, outstanding international candidates may be considered.

 

How to apply

 

Applications are invited from candidates with a Master’s degree or equivalent in appropriate discipline. Applicants must hold, or expect to obtain, a first or upper second-class undergraduate degree or UK equivalent, in an appropriate subject from a recognised academic institution, and must meet College entry requirements .

You must select your preferred project from the list of three available projects. Please include your preferred project choice in your application.

Your application must include a two-page CV and 500-word statement detailing why you would like to apply for this programme. It must also contain a transcript of your degree results to date.

PhD Studentship - Epigenetic Features of the Genome (Fixed Term)

Location: United Kingdom

The Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute (CRUK CI) is a joint venture between the Charity, Cancer Research UK, and the University of Cambridge. The Institute has excellent state-of-the-art facilities and research ranges from basic cancer biology and computational biology through to translational research and clinical application. Graduate students play a pivotal role in the continuing success of our research programmes and gaining a studentship in the Institute is an excellent opportunity to start a research career in an environment committed to training outstanding cancer research scientists of the future. For further information, go to: https://www.cruk.cam.ac.uk/jobs-and-studentships/postgraduate-study

 

Professor Sir Shankar Balasubramanian, Head of the research group studying the Chemical Biology of Nucleic Acids, wishes to appoint a student to work on the project entitled: Epigenetic Features of the Genome.

 

Project details

 

The lab exploits both chemistry and biology to address fundamental mechanisms of genome function (http://www-balasubramanian.ch.cam.ac.uk). While many genetic determinants of cancer are known, alternative nucleic acid secondary structures and chemically modified DNA (or RNA) bases can be epigenetic features of nucleic acids that are important to normal biology and in oncogenesis. The project will explore chemical modifications as epigenetic features and how these influence secondary structure formation and function in the genome of normal and cancer cells. The scope of the project may include exploring the formation and dynamics of G-quadruplex structures and modified DNA bases in the genome and their roles in gene expression, DNA replication and genome stability. We have developed methods to show that G-quadruplexes are enriched in cancer-related genes and have a profound impact on transcription (e.g. Nature Genetics, 2016, 48, 1267-1272; Nature Biotechnology, 2015, 33, 877-881). We have also developed genome-wide mapping and sequencing of modified bases and are now exploring further base modifications (e.g. Genome Biology, 2017, 18:23; Nature Chemical Biology, 2015, 11, 555-557).

 

Preferred skills/knowledge

 

The student will be highly motivated, capable of independent thought and have excellent communication skills with the ability to work collaboratively. Ideally, the candidate will have a strong background in molecular biology and/or biochemistry. Knowledge of the chemistry and biology of nucleic acids would be beneficial.

 

Funding

 

This project is funded by a Cancer Research UK studentship that includes full funding for University and College fees and a stipend of £19,000 per annum.

 

Eligibility

 

No nationality restrictions apply to Cancer Research UK funded studentships. Applications are invited from recent graduates or final year undergraduates who hold or expect to gain a first/upper second class degree (or equivalent) in a relevant subject from any recognised university worldwide.

 

How to apply

 

All applications need to be made using the University Applicant Portal. Please visit: https://www.graduate.study.cam.ac.uk/courses/directory/cvcrpdmsc for further information about the course and to access the applicant portal.

 

To complete your on-line application, you need to provide the following:

 

Reference Request: The names and contact details of two academic referees who have agreed to act on your behalf.

Research position

PhD student (fully funded)

Location: Sweden

The position as a PhD (licentiate) student is announced as part of a research project entitled “Urban agriculture as blue-green infrastructure: Can it feed bodies and minds while protecting waterways?” Urban agriculture is increasing in popularity but is an understudied green infrastructure type in terms of nutrients. This project will fill part of this knowledge gap by looking at urban agriculture and nutrient cycling in Linköping Sweden and Minneapolis USA. This includes working with spatial data as well as setting up and running monitoring programs to assess nutrient flows in urban and periurban cultivation systems. Data collection will be informed by stakeholder workshops and interviews to identify further benefits of such systems and how to adapt them to multiple goals. Hence, the PhD (licentiate) student will work in a multidisciplinary environment with close connections to the society and in communication with relevant stakeholders.

 

The holder of the advertised position is expected to conduct field and laboratory work to quantify the flows of nitrogen and phosphorus through urban agriculture, with a focus on water quality. The objective is to better understand if urban farming could act as a source of pollution.

In case the institution/university does not have any scheme for converting the CGPA into equivalent marks, the equivalence would be established by dividing obtained CGPA by the maximum possible CGPA and multiplying the result by 100.

The percentage of marks obtained in Class X and Class XII would be the aggregate marks of all subjects that appear in the mark sheet of grade sheet, irrespective of whether the Board considers them for calculation of percentage.
