  (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.
  (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.
  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

PhD Type

Where will out fuels come from in the future and still prevent catastrophic climate change? This question lies at the heart of one of humankind’s major challenges.

  A step change in the modelling of enzymatic catalysis
  Prof P Popelier, Dr L Johannissen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A deep understanding of enzymatic processes requires an atomic-level description, which is often beyond experimental techniques but achievable through synergy with computational chemistry.
  Understanding cellulose synthesis in plants
  Prof S Turner, Prof S High
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is clear that there is now enormous pressure to develop much better replacements for plastics derived from fossil fuels. One possibility is to develop novel plastics based on polymers from plants.
