PhD Scholarship in Synthetic Medicinal Chemistry, Curtin University, Australia

Curtin University, AustraliaThe Office of Research and Development has a PhD scholarship available for Honours/MSc students with strong skill sets in synthetic medicinal chemistry to study under the supervision of Dr Hendra Gunosewoyo in an ARC project.

The project aims to develop chemical probes capable of inhibiting the transport of essential mycolic acid across the cell wall of Mycobacterium tuberculosis. The emergence of resistant strains of Mycobacterium tuberculosis necessitates the identification of new, validated biological target(s) in the current control of tuberculosis. Preliminary data in this proposal demonstrate the discovery of indoleamides as a novel chemcal entity. Development of these indoleamides may provide insights into a novel mechanism of action that could be targeted in combination with existing antitubercular agents.

PhD Studentship in Mathematical Genomics and Medicine, University of Cambridge, UK

University of Cambridge UKModern genomics promises not only to help uncover the molecular basis of disease, but also to have a major impact on health care through translation of advances in techniques, computation and knowledge into clinical trials and clinical practice. Quantitative analysis is at the heart of this goal, and there is a pressing requirement for researchers with thorough mathematical and statistical expertise, in addition to training in medical genetics and informatics.

This PhD programme has been established as a collaboration between the University of Cambridge and the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute. The programme will provide the opportunity to work at the interface between the mathematical and computational sciences, and genome-scale and translational medical research.

Who are we looking for?
Successful applicants will have strong mathematical, statistical and computational skills, and may include exceptional biologists. They will develop quantitative techniques and theoretical approaches and apply them to practical problems in both translational and basic biomedical research.

PhD Fellowship in Medicinal Chemistry, University of Copenhagen, Denmark

The Department of Drug Design and Pharmacology, Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences, University of Copenhagen is pleased to announce that a PhD fellowship will be available from 1/9 2016 or as soon as possible thereafter. The application deadline is 1/6 2016.

Applications are invited for the three-year fellowship from applicants who hold or expect to hold a master´s degree in a field relevant to the following PhD project: Design and synthesis of selective 5-HT2A receptor agonists.

Project description
In our research we are trying to develop new tool compounds that can help uncover the mechanism of action of psychedelics (like psilocybin), that recently have been shown to have potential in the treatment of various mental illnesses like anxiety, substance use disorders and depression. Researchers are trying to understand the mechanism of action of psychedelics – how can we explain the therapeutic effects? One of the biggest hurdles in this endeavor is the unselective pharmacological profile of classic psychedelics like psilocybin, which is a non-selective Serotonin 2A receptor (5-HT2AR) agonist. Thus, the effect of selectively activating the 5-HT2AR remains to be investigated – as such a tool compounds have remained elusive until recently.

We have previously developed one of the most selective agonists described to date 25CN-NBOH. See more about our research into 5-HT2AR ligands: http://drug.ku.dk/research/mcr/medchem/kristensen-group/5-ht2a-agonists/

In this project we are aiming at identifying a selective agonist of the 5-HT2AR amenable for in vivo investigation. Thus, the successful candidate’s primary obligation in this project will be the design and synthesis of new ligands – the pharmacological evaluation will be conducted by collaborators.
