About the Project
The project will be carried out at the Manchester Institute of Biotechnology (MIB) at Manchester (under guidance of Prof. D. Leys, S. Hay and A. W. Munro), with a 12 month placement at our international partners at BioZone, University of Toronto, Canada (Prof. E. A. Edwards). The work at Manchester will focus on molecular enzymology and rational evolution of reductive dehalogenases, with the fundamental knowledge gained at MIB used to guide research into real-world applications at BioZone, using microbiology and chemical engineering approaches.
Informal enquires can be made to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applicants must have obtained, or be about to obtain, at least an upper second class honours degree (or equivalent) in a relevant subject.
UK applicants interested in this project should make direct contact with the Principal Supervisor to arrange to discuss the project further as soon as possible. International applicants (including EU nationals) must ensure they meet the academic eligibility criteria (including English Language) as outlined before contacting potential supervisors to express an interest in their project. Eligibility can be checked via the University Country Specific information page (https://www.manchester.ac.uk/study/international/country-specific-information/).
If your country is not listed you must contact the Doctoral Academy Admissions Team providing a detailed CV (to include academic qualifications – stating degree classification(s) and dates awarded) and relevant transcripts.
Following the review of your qualifications and with support from potential supervisor(s), you will be informed whether you can submit a formal online application.
To be considered for this project you MUST submit a formal online application form - full details on how to apply can be found on the BBSRC DTP website http://www.manchester.ac.uk/bbsrcdtpstudentships
