  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Microbial chassis engineering for next generation hydrocarbon biofuels manufacturing
  Prof N Scrutton, Dr S Hay
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Synthesis of carbon based catalysts for the sustainable upgrade of agro-waste pyrolysis products into biofuels for rural areas
  Dr R Volpe
Application Deadline: 22 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Thermochemical breakdown of biomass via Pyrolysis or Gasification provides a facile alternative for the upgrading of agro-waste to energy vectors.
  (BBSRC DTP) Exploiting transcriptional regulation to improve plant cell wall as a feedstock for the sustainable production of biofuels and other chemicals
  Prof S Turner, Dr M Kim, Prof A Sharrocks
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cellulose is a polymer of glucose and its remarkable structural properties means it is the world’s most abundant biopolymer. Cellulose from higher plants is an abundant source of renewable material that can be used as a source of raw material for chemical and fuel production, or for generating novel biomaterials.
  Development and synthesis of zeolites for the conversion of sugars to biofuels and environmental applications
  Dr M Conte
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A promising strategy to replace non-renewable fuel sources, as raw material for energy applications, is to convert renewable biomass into transportation fuels and value-added chemicals.
  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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  New metalloenzymes for biomass degradation
  Prof P Walton, Prof G Davies
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

China became the world’s largest car market in 2009, overtaking the United States. China’s vehicle stock grew from 16 million in 2000 to 154 million in 2014, registering an annual growth rate of 17.5%.
  Hybrid dynamic modelling framework for bioprocess digitalisation and optimisation
  Dr D Zhang
Application Deadline: 30 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The background of this research is to explore and integrate a range of mechanistic and machine learning based modelling strategies to develop a multilevel digital framework (digital twin) for industrial bioprocess dynamic simulation and prediction, online optimisation (online learning), and product quality control.
  (BBSRC DTP) A step change in the modelling of enzymatic catalysis
  Prof P Popelier, Dr L Johannissen, Dr S Hay
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A deep understanding of enzymatic processes requires an atomic-level description, which is often beyond the reach of experimental techniques but can be achieved through synergy with computational chemistry.
