PhD Studentship in Medical Education, Keele University, UK

Join an ambitious team at the UK’s leading campus-based university to complete a project that combines education, psychology and medicine.

Applicants should have a good first degree (2:1 or above) in a relevant discipline and a Masters degree in a related discipline is desirable. Funding is available for three years to cover fees for PhD registration (2018/19 home/EU rates: £4,260) and a research studentship stipend of currently £14,777 per annum for 2018/19. Non-EU students would be required to pay the balance (currently approximately £11,200 per annum) of the overseas fees themselves. The post will be shared between the internationally renowned institute for Primary Care and Health Sciences (iPCHS), and the Keele’s Medical School Education Research Group (MERG).

The project:
Accurate assessment of the clinical skills of trainee healthcare professionals is vital for both patient safety and educational development and fairness. Current assessment approaches rely on observation and judgement by professionals but are limited by problematic variability in scores. This PhD will contribute to the growing field of “Assessor Cognition” in medical education. Several studies have shown that recently-observed performances influence examiners’ judgements, and may influence their attention. This has lead to pragmatic suggestions that observing “benchmarking” videos prior to examining may direct assessors’ attention and result in more consistent judgements. Despite this, little prior work has investigated whether or how benchmarking influences assessors’ attention and what impact this has on their judgements.

The programme of study will use an initial qualitative think-aloud based approach to study the influence of benchmarking performances on assessors’ attention. It will then use experimental methods to test the influence of mediating factors. Finally, in either the later stages of the PhD or in follow-up work, it will trial an intervention based on benchmarking in the context of a medical student Objective Structured Clinical Exam (OSCE). As a result the PhD’s findings are anticipated to directly inform current practice, and be of interest to national and international audiences and policy makers. The candidate will be supported, but given considerable latitude, to develop the research approach in terms of theory, focus and methods.

PhD Fellowships in Organic Chemistry / Radiopharmaceutical Chemistry, University of Copenhagen, Denmark

Department of Drug Design and Pharmacology, Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences (SUND) is offering 3 three-year PhD fellowships in organic chemistry/radiopharmaceutical chemistry. The PhD fellowships are financed by the EU via a MC-ITN-ETN action. As such, the PhD fellowships are a part of a training programme PET-AlphaSy consisting in total 15 PhD students located in 5 European countries (Denmark, Sweden, Netherlands, Germany, Belgium). The PhD fellowships will attend common training sessions, e.g. within radiopharmaceutical chemistry or imaging and have secondments at the corresponding partner universities. The fellowships are available from 1 December 2018 or as soon as possible thereafter.

The positions are conditional on receiving the grant from the EU. Currently, the University of Copenhagen is within the negotiation phase with the EU.

  1. Project description

Nanomedicines have been proven to be beneficial in diagnosis and therapy. In vivo imaging studies with the help of labeled structures are crucial to develop new nanomedicinal based drugs. In this project, we will develop a new imaging method based on bioorthogonal chemistry. The tetrazine ligation will be used to establish a so called pretargeted imaging approach that will be applied to blood-brain-barrier (BBB) permeable antibodies. A set of tetrazines will be synthesized and evaluated in respect to reaction kinetics, ADME properties, BBB permeability and metabolism. Most promising compounds will be radiolabeled with fluorine-18 and subsequently evaluated in an in vivo system that will be developed within our MC-ITN-ETN network. The project is mainly organic chemistry focused and spiced up with radioactive work. BBB permeable antibodies will be provided from a small-medium sized enterprise, BioArctic, Sweden. In vivo evaluation studies will mainly be carried out at the Werner Siemens Imaging Center, Tuebingen, Germany. A 3 month stay abroad at both partners is requested.

Principal supervisor is Associate Professor, Matthias Herth, Department of Drug Design and Pharmacology, E-mail: matthias.herth@sund.ku.dk, Direct Phone: +45 93565414.

  1. Project description

Pretargeted imaging displays a novel possibility to image targets with monoclonal antibodies (mAb) with improved imaging contrast and lower radiation dose. The tetrazine ligation is one of the most promising bioorthogonal reaction for pretargeted strategies. In this project, a blood-brain-barrier (BBB) permeable antibody will be functionalized selectively with trans-cyclooctene (TCO) functional groups. These TCO groups will enable the selective binding of radiolabeled tetrazines to the mAb in vivo via pretargeted chemistry. Tetrazines will be developed by PhD fellows within our MC-ITN-ETN network and blood-brain-barrier (BBB) permeable antibodies will be provided by H. Lundbeck A/S, Denmark. In particular, this project is focused on novel strategic ideas to increase the amount of TCOs per mAb without disturbing the biological integrity of the mAb. Organic chemistry, ADME studies and biopharmaceutical chemistry techniques are the basis of this project. In vivo evaluation studies will mainly be carried out at the Uppsala University, Sweden and mAb conjugation chemistry at H. Lundbeck A/S, Denmark. Minimum 3 month stay at both partners is requested.
