  RNA Biodesign: Developing Molecular Switch Components for Enzyme Expression Systems
  Dr A J Callaghan, Dr D Gowers, Dr G Scarlett
Application Deadline: 24 February 2019
Applications are invited for a fully-funded three year PhD studentship to commence in October 2019. This fully-funded studentship is supported as part of the University of Portsmouth’s investment to grow its newly developed Centre for Enzyme innovation.
  New ways to look at enzyme structures
  Dr P C E Moody, Dr J Basran
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Metal-catalysed activation of oxygen in biology is achieved using either copper or iron. In the case of iron, this includes the heme-containing enzymes which activate oxygen.
  (BBSRC DTP) A computational model for improving catalytic rate in enzymes.
  Dr J Warwicker, Dr S De Visser, Dr S Hay
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project will use computational approaches to couple a widely accepted feature of importance in enzyme activity to visualisation and prediction.
  Discovery of ubiquitin-conjugation enzyme inhibitors from marine natural products.
  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
  Prof M Auer, Dr N Carragher
Application Deadline: 13 December 2018
Ubiquitination is a key biochemical event which regulates most cell processes. Proteins are modified with ubiquitin, or ubiquitinated, through a series of reactions involving the E1, E2 and E3 enzymes.
  (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.
  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.
  Protein engineering of synthetic enzyme switches for the next generation for infectious-disease and toxin diagnostics. (CASE Studentship with Dstl)
  Research Group: School of Biomedical Sciences
  Prof L J C Jeuken, Prof C Wälti
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
There is an ever-increasing demand for better, more reliable, more cost-effective, faster point-of-care (PoC) diagnostic tools.
  Characterisation and engineering of novel and enhanced enzymes for the conversion of lignin biomass to high-value products
  Prof J McGeehan, Dr A Pickford, Dr G Beckham
Application Deadline: 24 February 2019
Applications are invited for a fully-funded three year PhD studentship to commence in October 2019.
  (BBSRC DTP) Design and Evolution of Enzymes with Non-Canonical Organocatalytic Mechanisms
  Dr A Green, Prof D Leys, Dr S Hay
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The project is firmly embedded at the interface of chemistry, biology and biophysics, a key driver for the BBSRC in the ‘Exploiting new ways of working’ agenda.
  Single-molecule fluorescence sensing of DNA enzyme activity, using pulse-shaped multiphoton excitation
  Prof A Jones
Applications accepted all year round
DNA-modifying enzymes are becoming increasingly important in genetic medicine. The development and effective use of gene-based therapies demands the specific and sensitive detection of the activities of these enzymes.
