PhD studentships

We are recruting PhD students to start in October 2022

We are advertising for PhD students to join our collaborative research projects. The first round of shortlising is expected by 4th April with interviews 11-13th April 2022.

An interactomics discovery platform for high value intractable cancer drug targets

This project would suit a candidate with a passion for developing new approaches for drug discovery, through applying chemistry to understand complex biological systems and cell biology. Prior experience in a multidisciplinary research environment, for example in chemical biology, would be an advantage. This project will be supervised by Prof. Ed Tate, Dr Emanuela Cuomo (AstraZeneca, Cambridge UK), and Dr Marco Di Antonio, in the state-of-the-art chemical biology labs at the £170M Molecular Sciences Research Hub at Imperial White City campus.

Next generation PHOTACS: A light switchable system for enhanced spatial and temporal precision in targeted protein degradation

Light is unsurpassed in its ability to control biological systems with high spatial and temporal resolution. It has the advantages of noninvasive and remote action, reversibility, speed, and facile modulation of the energies involved (through use of different wavelengths/colours). The control of protein degradation by bifunctional PROTAC small molecules has become a highly interesting and rapidly expanding area of activity with a range of applications, from target validation to the identification of new therapeutic modalities. In principle, the ability to turn such PROTACs ‘off’ and ‘on’ with high spatial and temporal precision using light offers yet more opportunities.
