  Engineering Carbon-carbon Bond Forming Enzymes from Plants for Applications in Industrial Biotechnology
  Prof G J Grogan, Dr B Lichman
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The synthesis of biologically active pharmaceutical compounds requires that chemical intermediates are synthesised in a very specific way, giving only one of two possible isomeric forms, as the unwanted form may be inactive or even toxic.
  Targeting enzymes for the degradation of plastics
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr G.R. Hemsworth, Dr D Tomlinson
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The release of plastics into the environment is having well-documented, harmful effects on much of the Earth’s wildlife. Plastics can be recycled but their conversion back into monomers is a significant challenge with many currently recycled plastics having properties inferior to the starting material.
  (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.
  Understanding microbial lignin degradation in soil
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Prof T Bugg, Prof E M H Wellington
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Project Highlights. Understand microbiology of lignin degradation in soil. Identify novel lignin-degrading bacteria and enzymes. Application to resource recovery from landfill waste.
  (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.
  3D Printing of Enzymes
  Prof R Wildman
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
4-year PhD studentship, Faculty of Engineering, University of Nottingham. EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Additive Manufacturing and 3D Printing.
  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.
  Enhancing the dynamics of plastic-degrading enzymes to improve their catalytic activity
  Dr A Pickford, Prof J McGeehan, Dr G Beckham
Application Deadline: 24 February 2019
Applications are invited for a fully-funded three year PhD studentship to commence in October 2019.
  Understanding mycobacterial oxidases using cryoEM
  Dr J Blaza, Prof A J Wilkinson
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Tuberculosis is a devastating disease. Even before the arrival of drug-resistant strains, the antibiotics used to treat tuberculosis were poorly tolerated and had to be administered for extended periods of time.
  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.
