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 inspire the development of biohybrid materials for light-driven production of electricity and fuels.
We're delighted to invite applications for a 4 year PhD studentship in our group. The project 'Developing bacterial nanowires for light-driven catalysis' will start in October 2020 and full details can be found here.
A 4 year PhD studentship is also available to join the group of our collaborator Dr Tom Clarke for a second project that will also start in October 2020. Full details of that project 'Engineering bacteria to harvest electrons' can be found here.
