About the Project
The project will design new catalysts inspired by properties of known enzymes. These include the active site chemistry, substrate binding and local environmental around the catalyst active site. The project has real world applications and we currently have a number of collaborations. These include replacing detergent enzymes, developing new routes to biodiesel, creating catalysis that initiate blood clotting cascade and materials that decontaminate nerve agents.
The project is in an interdisciplinary team with postdocs and other students. The students will learn skills in biochemistry, organic chemistry, enzyme kinetics and polymer chemistry. ANU is one of Australians top universities and is constantly ranked in the top 50 world wide. Canberra was also ranked in third in Lonely Planets "Best in Travel 2018" list.
Australia has a 3.5 year system hence you will finish your PhD in 3.5 years (with possible 6 month extension).
