  (BBSRC DTP CASE) High Pressure Biocatalysis: generating generic and scalable approaches to biocatalysis using engineered enzymes
  Dr S Hay, Prof A Munro
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Oxidation reactions play a key role in the bulk chemical industry and enzyme-mediated biocatalysis offers an alternative to the use of traditional catalysts, which can suffer from poor chemical selectivity and require the use of harsh reaction conditions and produce hazardous waste products.
  Solvent-free Enzyme Biofluids for Non-aqueous Biocatalysis
  Dr A Brogan
Application Deadline: 21 December 2018
Our society has an increasing demand for the fuels, plastics, and other essential chemicals that support our modern way of life. This growing energy requirement is in direct competition with the need to better protect our environment to mitigate the ongoing climate change we are experiencing.
  Nucleating the growth of biofilms for biocatalysis with polymer chemistry
  Dr F Fernandez-Trillo, Dr T Overton
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Bacteria often attach to surfaces in the form of biofilms. Biofilms represent a problem in many medical and industrial settings as they are physically tough and hard to kill or remove from surfaces.
  (BBSRC DTP) Towards vibrational control of enzymes for biotechnology and biocatalysis
  Dr S Hay, Prof N Scrutton
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The project is firmly embedded at the interface of chemistry, biology and physics, a key driver for BBSRC in the ‘Exploiting new ways of working’ agenda.
  (BBSRC DTP) Probing the chemistry of the prenylated flavin cofactor: Synthesis, mechanistic probes, and biocatalysis
  Prof D Procter, Prof D Leys, Dr S Hay
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This cross-disciplinary project fuses chemical synthesis and mechanism, structural biology, computational (bio)chemistry and cutting-edge biotechnology in a highly innovative approach to the development of new biocatalytic processes of interest to industry and addresses the BBSRC’s strategic research priority, Bioenergy and Industrial Biotechnology.
  Enzyme Engineering for Industrial Biocatalysis
  Dr TS Wong, Dr K Tee
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Fossil fuels have long been the primary energy and carbon sources, providing the raw materials needed for the manufacture of a wide range of products that we use daily.
  (BBSRC DTP) Understanding and Harnessing Enzymes for Organosilicon Chemistry
  Dr L Wong, Dr S De Visser, Dr P Quayle
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
As a project that traverses the boundaries of the physical and life sciences, the student will learn skills in a. wide range of areas.
  EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Bioprocess Engineering Leadership
EPSRC funded EngD Opportunities The UCL Advanced Centre for Biochemical Engineering trains bioprocess engineering leaders of the future who will underpin the translation of new scientific advances into safe, selective and manufacturable therapies for what are often currently intractable conditions, but at affordable costs.
  Bacterial biofilms, human health and industrial efficiency: to explore the development of biofilms in response to environmental stimuli.
  Dr T Overton
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Biofilms are hard to remove from a variety of industrial and clinical settings and as such pose a risk to human health and industrial efficiency.
  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Driving enzymatic carboxylation using supercritical CO2
  Prof D Leys, Dr S Hay, Prof I Larrosa
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The use of CO2 as a chemical feedstock is attractive for various reasons, not least as a means to address the desirable reduction of global CO2 levels.
