  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

PhD 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.
  Tracking anaerobic microbial community responses using a synthetic biology approach
  Prof J P J Chong, Dr K Redeker
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Anaerobic digestion (AD) supports the biogenic production of methane from. organic waste by utilising the catabolic activities of complex microbial.
  Synthetic biology toward innovative virus-like particles
  Prof Bernd Rehm
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Virus-like particles (VLP) are self-assembled viral proteins that do not contain genetic material and are non-infectious. VLPs have been successfully developed into particulate vaccines for prevention of viral infections such as human papilloma virus or Hepatitis B.
  Bioplastic from sustainable feedstock – tackling the plastic challenge
  Dr K Tee
Application Deadline: 15 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plastic is used in many applications, including packaging, construction material, parts in the automotive, biomedical devices and electronic components.
  (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.
  Developing Bacterial Nanowires for Light-Driven Catalysis (BUTTU20DTP)
  Prof J Butt, Dr T Clarke
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inspired by natural photosynthesis and addressing limitations of purely synthetic approaches, this PhD project aims to provide proof of principle for light-driven chemical synthesis through the design and assembly of novel inorganic:biological hybrid materials.
  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.
  Enzyme Engineering for Industrial Biocatalysis
  Dr TS Wong
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fossil fuels have long been the primary energy and carbon sources, providing the raw materials needed for the manufacture of a wide range of products that we use daily.
  Production of Industrial Chemicals for Personal Care and Health Care Using Oleaginous Yeast
  Dr TS Wong
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many ingredients in the personal care and health care products, for example lipids, are derived from petroleum, animal fat or vegetable oil.
  Control of metabolite transport into durable protocells and nanoreactors
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr P Beales, Prof L J C Jeuken, Prof A Goldman
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Protocells (or nanoreactors) are seen as a stepping-stone to understanding the origin of life and are being developed to generate novel cell-like biotechnologies.
