  The potential of natural phage communities in biofilm degradation
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr E Jameson, Dr F Harrison
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Project Highlights. Examine the structure of phage communities from a range of environments with metagenome sequencing. Construct a synthetic model biofilm in the laboratory, which is representative of waste water treatment biofouling.
  Decoding microbial ‘cross talk’ in polymicrobial infections
  Dr N Bandara, Dr A Nobbs
Applications accepted all year round
A significant proportion of human infections are caused by microbial pathogens. These organisms interact socially to build highly organized, well-coordinated, hierarchical structures known as biofilms.
  Structural and time-resolved studies of phage replication in bacterial biofilm
  Dr P Plevka
Application Deadline: 3 February 2019
When Staphylococcus aureus cells form a biofilm in the human body they become shielded from the immune system and highly resistant to antibiotics.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Developmental imaging of bacterial biofilms with advanced microscopy, image processing and machine learning
  Dr S Holden, Dr B Obara
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
We are looking for an outstanding physical/ computational scientist to develop cutting edge microscopy and quantitative imaging tools for high resolution imaging of bacterial biofilms.
  **MRes Application of Biosurfactants as anti-biofilm agents
  Dr F Stainsby, Dr H Vaughan
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The global rise of antimicrobial resistance has potentially devastating consequences, particularly within the healthcare sector, and requires urgent attention.
  Modelling of biofilm inception
  Dr M Mazza, Prof A Archer
Application Deadline: 15 February 2019
The vast majority of microorganisms do not live in isolation, but rather in consortia called biofilms. Biofilms are cities of microorganisms, which are organized to optimize their growth and function.
  Mechanisms of Streptococcus biofilm and community development
  Dr A Nobbs
Applications accepted all year round
Streptococcus bacteria are opportunistic pathogens and ubiquitous colonisers of the human oral cavity and mucosae. They are often prominent members of the resident microbiota at these sites, reflecting their evolutionary adaptation to successful colonisation of their ecological niche.
  Biofilm Engineering for Healthcare Applications
  Dr AF Taylor, Dr E Karunakaran
Applications accepted all year round
Biofilms are communities of microorganisms bound to surfaces by a layer of glue-like extracellular polymeric substances (EPS). They can be found virtually everywhere, from water pipes and food packaging to medical devices and human tissues.
  PhD Studentship in Drug Delivery and Pharmaceutics - Novel antimicrobial formulation strategies in combating skin biofilm
  Dr W Lau
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Number of awards. 1. Start date and duration. April 2019 for 3 years. Overview. Interested in finding new treatment for skin infections? This project will investigate novel formulation strategies to overcome skin infection and biofilms.
  Advanced Anti-biofilm Surface Coatings Probed by Spatially Resolved Imaging and Microbiology Techniques
  Prof R Raval
Applications accepted all year round
This position will remain open until filled, so we recommend you apply as soon as possible. A fully funded PhD studentship is available on high-resolution imaging and spectroscopic probing of microbial interactions at surfaces and interfaces.
