  Global analysis of evasive strategies developed by Staphylococcus aureus to circumvent complement and innate immunity
  Dr M Laabei
Application Deadline: 24 February 2019
Staphylococcus aureus is an important human pathogen responsible for a wide-spectrum of diseases that range from mild superficial skin diseases to life-threatening infections.
  Mechanisms of interbacterial competition during Staphylococcus aureus colonisation
  Dr T Palmer
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Before they can cause disease, bacteria need to colonise their hosts. To do so they must establish a niche among the resident microbiota.
  Integrating antimicrobial resistance mechanisms of Staphylococcus aureus
  Dr M Horsburgh
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
The need for new antibiotics is paramount for the continued success of modern medical methods and to prevent regression of advances in treatments.
  Staphylococcus aureus Infection Dynamics
  Prof S J Foster
Applications accepted all year round
S. aureus is a major human pathogen of increasing importance due to the spread of antibiotic resistance. It can cause a wide range of diseases, from superficial skin infections to life threatening endocarditis and septicaemia.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: The making of a Super Bug. Understanding the mechanisms of high level antibiotic resistance in Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)
  Prof S J Foster, Prof N Zenkin
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Supervisor. Professor Simon Foster (University of Sheffield). Co-supervisor. Professor Nikolay Zenkin (University of Newcastle). Background Information.
  Bacterial survival in the host and in the environment is promoted by horizontal gene transfer of additional metal resistance genes
  Dr J Morrissey, Prof P W Andrew
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Excess copper is highly toxic and forms part of the host innate immune system’s antibacterial arsenal, accumulating at sites of infection and acting within macrophages to kill engulfed pathogens.
  PhD In Infection & Immunity - Profiling superantigen-induced immunosupression of unconventional T cells during severe sepsis
  Dr J McLaren, Prof M Eberl, Prof D Price
Application Deadline: 27 February 2019
Sepsis is a life-threatening illness that is triggered by an exaggerated immune response to severe infection. This unbalanced reaction induces hyperinflammation, shock and organ dysfunction that forms the primary cause of death in hospitalised patients.
  Newcastle-Liverpool-Durham Doctoral Training Partnership in Biosciences
The Newcastle-Liverpool-Durham DTP (http://www.nld-dtp.org.uk/) is a strategic Partnership in Biosciences doctoral training between three research-intensive universities in northern cities of great industrial heritage, Newcastle University, the University of Liverpool and Durham University.
  Chronic Wounds and Infection - impact on diabetic patients
  Research Group: Centre for Skin Sciences
  Dr M J Thornton, Dr J N Fletcher
Applications accepted all year round
Non-healing chronic wounds present a significant clinical challenge. In Europe, the cost of wound management accounts for 2%–4% of the health care budget and the complications associated with impaired wound healing can have a significant, long-term effect on the morbidity, mortality, and quality of life for patients.
  Bacteriophages of Gram positive bacteria: gateways to infection control
  Dr G Xia, Prof J P Derrick
Applications accepted all year round
The rise in antibiotic resistance has prompted a renewed interest in bacteriophage research. A study of the molecular basis for recognition of the bacterial host has applications in detection, vaccine design and control of bacterial infections.
