CC-TOP: C-C Bond Formation by Top Performing Enzymes

I would like to bring to your attention that we are currently seeking 15 PhD candidates in our new ITN for positions in 6 European countries (Croatia, France, Germany, Netherlands, Spain, UK). Deadline for applications is May 31st. 
CC-TOP:    C-C Bond Formation by Top Performing Enzymes
The CC-TOP project aims to build a new generation of researchers with adequate skills to explore the multi-facetted aspects of bioprocess development for C-C bond formation (carboligation). We will train ESR’s by 15 cutting-edge projects in a wide spectrum of fields, including the discovery, characterization, engineering and application of novel biocatalysts for carboligation toward the synthesis of valuable chiral targets of industrial interest. All projects include cross-disciplinary, intersectoral secondments within 18 partner organizations (10 academic and 11 non-academic) at top universities, research centres, and companies across Europe. As you probably know, these full-time positions are also well funded. 
A detailed description of each of the 15 ESR projects, and instructions on how to apply, is provided in the general call for applications on the CC-TOP website:
