Centre for Enzyme Innovation PhD projects
We were recently awarded £5.8 million in funding by the Research England Expanding Excellence Fund, and coupled with significant investment by the University, we're transforming our knowledge and expertise into action, and delivering transformative enzyme-enabled solutions for the circular recycling of plastics.
We've also won a 2019 Times Higher Education Award for 'Best Research Project (STEM)' for our work on plastic-eating enzymes.
The fully-funded PhD projects listed below are an exciting opportunity for outstanding candidates to make their own contribution to the pioneering work taking place within the CEI, and to work alongside leading academics in the field.
