By a result of C. Greither and B. Pareigis, there is a one-to-one correspondence between Hopf Galois structures on a Galois extension with group $G$ and regular subgroups of $\mbox{Perm}(G)$ normalized by left translations of $G$. By work of N. P. Byott and L. N. Childs, one can in turn construct such subgroups using fixed point free homomorphisms. We shall give a brief review of their work and discuss some generalizations. This is work in progress.
