  Characterising and repurposing cyanobacterial CO2-fixing organelles for metabolic engineering
  Dr LN Liu, Dr J Hartwell
Applications accepted all year round
Compartmentalisation represents an effective strategy used by cells to enhance their activities. By creating physical barriers and compartments, cells sequester the metabolic pathways from the cellular milieu to allow controls of metabolic flux and toxic diffusion.
  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.
  Synthetic metabolic pathways and biosensor systems for production and detection of chemicals in Cupriavidus necator
  Dr N Malys, Prof N Minton
Applications accepted all year round
The production of chemicals from renewable sources is a key for a sustainable future. Various compounds can be produced by bacteria and yeast carrying synthetic metabolic pathways assembled of multiple genes derived from other organisms.
  (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.
  Engineering Cupriavidus Necator H16 to Convert CO2/Waste Stream into Useful Chemicals Using a Synthetic Biology Approach
  Dr TS Wong, Dr K Tee
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
This project falls under the umbrella of carbon capture and utilization (CCU), i.e., to turn a greenhouse gas CO2 into a useful feedstock for chemical syntheses.
  Condition specific engineering of P. putida for rhamnolipid production
  Dr P Rahman, Dr S Robson, Dr C Angione
Application Deadline: 24 February 2019
Applications are invited for a fully-funded three year PhD studentship to commence in October 2019. The project will focus on. Incorporating non-native pathways and to implement innovative and computational-based metabolic design in Pseudomonas putida including oxidative catabolic pathways for lignin degradation.
  Engineering Microbial Communities for Biotechnology and Bioremediation
  Dr J Pandhal
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Microbial biotechnology is usually undertaken by a single species in a fermenter. However, some processes are metabolically challenging for a single species and therefore more suited to communities of microbes.
  Synthetic Biology Approaches to Improve the E. coli Biomanufacturing Platform
  Dr J Pandhal, Prof M.J. Dickman
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
E. coli is used to produce proteins for multi-billion pound industries for the production of biocatalysts, therapeutics and diagnostics.
  The production of alcohols as commodity chemicals/ biofuels using yeast as a vehicle
  Prof M Ashe, Prof C M Grant, Dr J-M Schwartz, Dr J Winterburn
Applications accepted all year round
Crude oil represents probably the most important natural resource to industrial nations. As well as fuel, crude oil is used to produce a host of chemicals that govern modern day life.
  Regulation of clostridial solvent production by quorum sensing
  Dr K Winzer
Applications accepted all year round
Second Supervisor. Ying Zhang. Background. The genus Clostridium comprises a large group of strictly anaerobic and metabolically diverse spore-forming bacteria.
