  GW4 BioMed MRC DTP PhD studentship: Defining the role of efflux in bacterial biofilm formation and antimicrobial resistance to develop new treatments for infection
  Dr B V Jones
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.
  Structural and time-resolved studies of phage replication in bacterial biofilm
  Dr P Plevka
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

When Staphylococcus aureus cells form a biofilm in the human body they become shielded from the immune system and highly resistant to antibiotics.
  New antimicrobial agents for biofilm-related infections
  Dr K Fairfull-Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The adhesion of bacteria to surfaces and their subsequent ability to aggregate into colonies called biofilms is a significant problem in healthcare systems around the world.
  Biofilm Engineering for Healthcare Applications
  Dr AF Taylor, Dr E Karunakaran
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Novel methods of Biofilm prevention and removal Project ID SAS0044
  Prof I Singleton, Dr N Wheelhouse
Application Deadline: 30 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

PROJECT DESCRIPTION. Microbial biofilms cause significant issues in a variety of commercial, medical and environmental scenarios.
  Regulation of virulence and biofilm formation by quorum sensing and the "stress alarmone" ppGpp in gram-negative pathogenic bacteria.
  Dr M Welch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are investigating the complex interplay between cell-cell signalling (quorum sensing), microbial lifestyle (i.e., free-living planktonic cultures vs sessile biofilm communities), growth phase and virulence in gram-negative bacteria.
  NERC GW4+ DTP studentship: Understanding the fate and potential impact of nano-plastics in freshwater organisms and ecosystems
  Prof I Durance, Prof P Borri
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is a growing realisation that the widespread use and degradation of plastics has created a legacy of plastic pollution. Mass balance studies have suggested that a large proportion of release plastics waste may now be present as micro- nano-scale particles.
  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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Pyocins as alternatives to antibiotics against Pseudomonas aeruginosa infections
  Dr C Penfold
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pyocins are bacteriocins produced by Pseudomonas aeruginosa to kill closely related strains of the same species during times of environmental stress.
  Adapt or die? Understanding how bacterial bioflms evolve under stress (WEBBERQ20DTP)
  Dr M Webber
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most bacteria in nature exist within a biofilm; a community of aggregated cells. Biofilms are important in many industrial contexts and most bacterial infections include biofilms.
