  Engineering Enzymes for Industrial Biotechnology
  Prof G J Grogan
Applications accepted all year round
Our research group is interested in the identification, characterization and application of enzymes of interest to biotechnology.
  Engineering Enzymes for the Preparation of Pharmaceutical Amines
  Prof G J Grogan
Application Deadline: 15 April 2019
Chiral Amines are found in a large proportion of currently administered small molecule drugs.
  Inhibitors and probes for carbohydrate-active enzymes
  Dr L Willems
Applications accepted all year round
The field of chemical biology aims to design and synthesize chemical tools (such as inhibitors, substrate mimics, or enzyme probes) to answer fundamental questions in biology.
  Designing Catalysts Inspired by Enzymes with Real World Applications
  Dr L Connal
Applications accepted all year round
Enzymes are nature’s catalysts, they perform highly specific chemical and physical functions from the generation of movement to the synthesis of DNA.
  Biophysics of enzyme-catalyzed phosphoryl transfer
  Prof J P Waltho
Applications accepted all year round
Using a combination of multinuclear NMR spectroscopy, high resolution X-ray crystallography, synthetic chemistry and computational chemistry we have explored the conformational behaviour of enzymes under a very wide range of conditions.
  Chemo-enzymatic Synthesis and Potential Applications of Novel Heterocyclic Alkaloids
  Dr H Deng, Dr L Trembleau
Applications accepted all year round
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is rising to dangerously high levels in all parts of the world. In Europe alone, drug-resistant bacteria are estimated to cause 25,000 deaths annually and cost more than US$1.5 billion every year in healthcare expenses and productivity losses.
  Discovery and development of carbohydrate active enzymes (CAZymes) for degradation of plant pathogenic biofilms
  Mr S Hall
Application Deadline: 7 April 2019
Discovery and development of carbohydrate active enzymes (CAZymes) for degradation of plant pathogenic biofilms. Xylella fastidiosa and Erwinia amylovora are two agriculturally important quarantine plant pathogens that are capable of destroying anumber of diverse crops.
  Chemical profiling of ubiquitin conjugation enzymes
  Dr S Virdee
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
University of Dundee, MRC Protein Phosphorylation and Ubiquitylation Unit, Dundee, United Kingdom. Dr. Satpal Virdee. A PhD project in the Virdee lab is available involving the development of chemical tools known as activity-based probes (ABPs).
  Identification, screening and scale up of enzymes in the Biocatalyst Discovery Metagenomics platform
  Prof N Scrutton, Prof N Turner
Applications accepted all year round
Background – Enzyme engineering strategies, supported by computational and molecular modelling to maximise speed and efficiency, has been shown to be a powerful tool for (semi-) rational design of enzymes.1,2 We will evaluate protein mobility/dynamics, docking/binding of substrates and calculation of free energy barriers for catalysis.
  New Routes to amides through discovery and development of amide ligase enzymes
  Prof J Micklefield, Dr A Green, Dr S Lovelock
Application Deadline: 15 April 2019
Applications are invited for a Ph.D. studentship in Biocatalysis commencing in September 2019 supervised by Prof. Jason Micklefield in collaboration with industrial affiliates at CoEBio3 including GSK, AstraZeneca and Merck.
