About the Project
In this project, the student will (1) develop molecular tools for engineering C. necator and related species, (2) apply metabolic engineering/directed evolution/synthetic biology to tailor/fine-tune the properties of C. necator for chemical production, and (3) design industrial processes utilizing C. necator and evaluate the techno-economics of biological CCU.
The student will join the multi-disciplinary ChELSI institute and the Advanced Biomanufacturing Centre (ABC) at the University of Sheffield, which is equipped with state-of-the-art research facilities. He/she will receive a broad training in molecular biology, protein engineering, synthetic biology, biophysics and chemical engineering. Further, he/she will engage with the Doctoral Development Programme designed to help developing specialist and transferable skills, which will enhance students’ research capability and employability.
If English is not your first language, then you must have International English Language Testing Service (IELTS) average of 6.5 or above with at least 6.0 in each component.
