  (BBSRC DTP) Characterization of P450 peroxygenases and their applications in alkene/biofuel production
  Prof A Munro, Prof D Leys
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The project involves characterization of P450 peroxygenase enzymes, a class of the P450 enzymes which naturally use hydrogen peroxide rather than redox partner systems to drive catalysis.
  Laser studies of free-radical recycling reactions in the atmosphere and biofuel oxidation
  Dr T J Dillon, Dr A R Rickard
Applications accepted all year round
This is a project to study gas-phase reactions of organic peroxyl radicals (RO2) in lab-based experiments at York & elsewhere. These reactions control radical propagation and termination rates in low to moderate temperature conditions; RO2 are therefore key intermediates in biofuel combustion and atmospheric oxidation.
  (BBSRC DTP) Biofuel synthesis from enzymes: how do charge distributions affect product control?
  Prof P Popelier, Dr S De Visser
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
One of this project ‘s strengths is the novel computational technology it introduces to the paramount field of biocatalysis. Any quantum mechanical insight into enzymes is initially holistic in character, that is, energies and electron densities are calculated for the whole systems.
  (BBSRC DTP) Optimising metabolism in response to the environment for biofuel and high-value chemical production in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Dr G Johnson, Dr J Pittman
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Chlamydomonas reinhardtii is a widely used model algal species which has enormous potential for biotechnological applications both as a platform strain, and as a model to direct more efficient use of commercially relevant strains.
  Investigating Photosynthesis in Nannochloropsis – An Important Algal Genus for Biofuel Production
  Dr D J Gilmour
Applications accepted all year round
One of the key insights from phylogenetic studies of eukaryotic microorganisms is the enormous diversity within the microalgal group with green algae being similar to plants and other groups such as diatoms being very different.
  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Microbial chassis engineering for next generation hydrocarbon biofuels manufacturing
  Prof N Scrutton, Dr H Toogood
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The development of economically viable microbial biofuels is a consequence of global concerns about reducing carbon emissions, dwindling fossil fuel supply and the development of cost effective renewable and sustainable bio-based strategies.
  Greener Aircraft: Enhanced combustion of second-generation biofuels
  Dr K Knowles, Dr K Depuru Mohan
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
CENTA2 is a consortium of research intensive Universities and research institutes that are working together to provide excellence in doctoral research training.
  Characterization of Some Biofuels from Waste Resources for Diesel Engine Applications.
  Dr O Kuti
Applications accepted all year round
Research Institute Reference Number. OA-2018-2-PhD. Project Summary. Biofuels such as alcohols and biodiesel from waste restaurant foods and agricultural residues have prospects as alternative source of energy for diesel engines in ensuring a low carbon environment.
  Hierarchical nanofabrication of microporous materials with enhanced hydrothermal stability for efficient catalytic reactions and adsorption-based separation
  Dr Y Huang, Dr Y Zheng
Application Deadline: 19 April 2019
This is a fully funded PhD studentship (3.5 year) for Home/EU students (International students can apply, but the funding only covers the Home/EU fee rate).
  Studying Single Aerosol Nucleation using Optical Tweezers
  Prof D McGloin
Applications accepted all year round
The following PhD project is available for both Australian domestic and international students starting in early 2019 to work with Prof.
