PhD - Combination of chrysotherapy and allenic compounds: new approaches for the generation of cancer therapeutics

University of East Anglia - School of Chemistry

Start Date: October 2017

No. of positions available: 1

Supervisor: Dr María Paz Muñoz

Project description: Applications are welcome for this competition-funded PhD studentship in the School of Chemistry at the University of East Anglia to work in the research group of Dr María Paz Muñoz. The PhD project involves the design of new gold complexes bearing allenic ligands and the investigation of these complexes as anticancer drugs. The research will be focus in first instance towards the synthesis of allenic bipyridines and other derivatives and the complexation with gold. The biological properties and anticancer activities of the new complexes will be tested in a later stage of the project in collaboration with groups in BIO.

Interviews will take place between 16 January and 24 February 2017.

Person specification: Students must have at least a 2:1 in Chemistry or related discipline or a good Masters degree in Chemistry.

Funding notes: This PhD project is in a Faculty of Science competition for funded studentships. These studentships are funded for 3 years and comprise home/EU fees, an annual stipend of £14,296 and £1000 per annum to support research training. Overseas applicants may apply but they are required to fund the difference between home/EU and overseas tuition fees (in 2016/17 the difference is £12,879 for the Schools of CHE & PHA, and £9,679 for CMP & MTH but fees are subject to an annual increase)
