  Molecular-genetic analysis of intra- and extra-cellular iron reduction systems in bacteria: role in gut colonisation and utilisation of dietary iron sources.
  Prof S C Andrews
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The innate immune defense systems respond to bacterial infection by reducing the amount of available iron in order to restrict bacterial growth.
  Graduate Student Position in Antibiotic Drug Discovery
  Dr S Cardona
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Interested in antibiotic drug discovery with a multidisciplinary approach? We are too! The Cardona Lab is looking for a graduate student for May 2020/September 2020.
  Characterising the cyanobacterial cytoskeleton (LEASMITHU20DTP)
  Dr D Lea-Smith, Dr G Kelemen
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cyanobacteria (photosynthetic bacteria) are amongst the most abundant organisms on the planet, accounting for approximately a quarter of carbon fixation.
  GW4 BioMed MRC DTP PhD studentship: Using computational simulation and machine learning to understand bacterial phenotypes of public health importance
  Dr L A Cowley
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the ‘GW4 BioMed MRC Doctoral Training Partnership’ which is offering up to 18 studentships for entry in September 2020.
  A New Molecular Machine Required for Bacterial Development into Spores
  Dr C Rodrigues
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Rodrigues Lab focuses on how bacteria develop into spores. Bacterial spores are one of the hardiest cell types on Earth and allow bacteria to persist in the environment when nutritional conditions are no longer favourable for growth.
  The molecular basis of the success of bacterial pathogens.
  Dr M van der Woude, Dr G H Thomas
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The success of a bacterial species depends on its ability to grow and survive in a changing and potentially hostile environment. This requires adaptation at both the single cell and population level.
  How acquisition of antimicrobial resistance genes enhance bacterial colonisation and virulence.
  Dr J Morrissey, Prof P W Andrew, Prof J M Ketley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human immune system uses antimicrobial metals as part of its defence mechanism. Excess copper is highly toxic and accumulates at sites of infection and acting within macrophages to kill engulfed pathogens.
  The impact of air pollution on bacteria colonisation and virulence.
  Dr J Morrissey, Prof J Ketley, Prof P W Andrew
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Air pollution is the world’s largest single environmental health risk, being responsible for an eighth of all global deaths per year (World Health Organisation, 2014).
  Bioengineering of bacterial CO2-concentrating system for improved photosynthesis
  Prof LN Liu, Dr D Canniffe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The single-cell photosynthetic bacteria, cyanobacteria, account for over 25% of global carbon fixation, thanks for their powerful CO2-concentrating machinery.
  Developing programmable DNA-guided endonucleases for genome engineering
  Prof M Mahfouz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacterial and archaeal species are rich with proteins used for DNA processing or host defense. We aim to engineer some of these proteins and test their ability to generate double strand breaks in a programmed and site-specific fashion.
