  Metabolic engineering of novel kavalactones using yeast quiescent cells
  Dr T Pluskal
Application Deadline: 23 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Metabolic engineering is a modern approach for the production of high-value molecules using enzymatic biosynthetic systems, typically expressed in microbes.
  Characterising and repurposing cyanobacterial CO2-fixing organelles for metabolic engineering
  Prof LN Liu, Dr J Hartwell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  (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.
  Engineering Cupriavidus Necator H16 to Convert CO2/Waste Stream into Useful Chemicals Using a Synthetic Biology Approach
  Dr TS Wong
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

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.
  (A*STAR) Engineering pathways to next generation antibiotics
  Prof J Micklefield, Dr A Green
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The provision of new antibiotics to combat antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and to treat neglected tropical diseases (NTD), which are problematic in the developing world, is a major global challenge.
  (UKM GUP) Microbial genome engineering for sustainable production of bioplastic
  Dr A B Ramzi
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Perennial use of fossil fuel-derived products has brought about alarming concerns of climate change and environmental pollution particularly the harmful effects of recalcitrant waste such as synthetic plastics to the surrounding ecosystem.
  (BBSRC DTP) Development of whole cell biocatalysts for biomass and plastic degradation
  Dr N Dixon, Prof N Scrutton, Dr A Green
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Two major societal challenges exist today i) how can we consumable more sustainably and ii) how can we minimise environmental contamination.
