Welcome to the website of Julea Butt's research group. Located in the School of Chemistry at the University of East Anglia in Norwich, we use a diverse array of tools including molecular biology, synthetic biology, optical spectroscopies, electrochemistry, mass spectrometry and protein engineering for our research. Our focus is the interface of chemistry and biology as we study metalloproteins to resolve their structures and function and to inspire the development of biohybrid materials for light-driven production of electricity and fuels.
We're delighted that a 4-year PhD Studentship opportunity is available to join the group in October 2021 through the Norwich Research Park BBSRC Doctoral Training Partnership. Further details of the project 'Engineering Bacterial Nanowires: Enhancing Electric Bacteria for Clean Chemical Synthesis', application process and deadline can be found here.
