PhD Studentship: Enzyme stabilisation

Department of Chemistry
Closes: 
Wednesday, 31 May, 2017

Applications are invited for a PhD studentship in the group of Professor Oren Scherman working on a project sponsored by AB Agri that will develop new methodologies based on supramolecular chemistry for the stabilisation of enzymes in feedstock formulations. New approaches to enzyme stabilisation are an urgent need as the current formulations are limited by poor stability to harsh conditions (high temperature, pH changes, etc.) often required for efficient processing.
