  Disrupting biofilm formation in nosocomial pathogens
  Dr R McCarthy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A biofilm by definition is a structured community of bacterial cells enclosed in a self-produced polysaccharide matrix and adherent to an inert or living surface.
  Bioinspired nanotopographies to control bacterial adhesion and biofilm formation
  Dr R D'Sa
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

By 2050, it is predicted that the rise of resistant strains of bacteria and the ever-growing threat of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) will be the cause of 10 million deaths annually, and will burden the global economy by £64 trillion.
  Surface-modified silicone elastomer for medical and drug delivery devices with reduced bacterial adherence and biofilm formation
  Dr L Carson, Prof K Malcolm
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

All implanted medical devices, including those fabricated from silicone elastomers, are susceptible colonisation with communities of microorganisms that colonise the surface of the device and rapidly establish biofilm populations.
  Additive Manufacture of Bacterial Biofilm Resistant Surfaces using Novel High Performing Polymer “Inks”
  Prof D Irvine
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Title. Additive Manufacture of Bacterial Biofilm Resistant Surfaces using Novel High Performing Polymer “Inks”. Topic. The production of Novel Devices Incorporating Bacterial Biofilm Resistant Surfaces via Additive Manufacturing Techniques.
  MSc by Research Programme: Proteins in the biofilm matrix of Bacillus subtilis
  Dr N Stanley-Wall
Application Deadline: 16 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This course allows you to work alongside our world renowned experts from the School of Life Sciences and gain a ’real research’ experience.
  Investigation of complement-bacteria-phage interactions in a Neisseria gonorrhoeae biofilm model
  Dr A Sagona, Prof E M H Wellington
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The problem of antimicrobial resistance is serious worldwide and the scientific community is faced with new challenges every day, which require new approaches.
  Nanotopographical modulation of bacterial adhesion and biofilm formation
  Prof B Su
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Surface topography has been known to alter bacterial adhesion and biofilm formation. It has become evident that surface hydrophobicity/hydrophilicity and effective contact area are the two main factors that are responsible for the different bacterial adhesive behaviour on surfaces.
  3 year PhD Studentship in Enabling Next Generation Additive Manufacturing- Additive Manufacture of Bacterial Biofilm Resistant Surfaces using Novel High Performing Polymer “Inks” (ENG1328)
  Dr I Centre for Additive Manufacture
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a Postgraduate Studentship to work on the project to develop novel polymeric inks to produces surfaces that are biofilm resistant via Additive Manufacturing.
  Biofilm disruption as an initial step in a novel strategy for treatment of chronic wounds based on multi-functional liposomal nanocarriers
  Research Group: Medicines Development and Pharmaceutical Sciences
  Dr X Liu, Dr S Shnyder
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The cost to the NHS of caring for patients with chronic wounds is conservatively estimated to be £4.5-5.7bn/year, or around 4% of the total expenditure on health.
  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.
  Broad spectrum antiviral and antibiofilm materials to treat hospital acquired infections
  Dr RA D'Sa
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications will close as soon as a suitable candidate is found.
  Investigating the role of the biofilm in waste water treatment plants as a reservoir for antimicrobial resistance
  Dr J Spencer, Dr J Roberts
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ref. SHLS20023 Spencer. Background. It has been reported that the rise/spread of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) will result in the premature deaths of 10 million people every year by 2050.
  Investigating the Causal Biological Effects on Microbial Induced Corrosion (MIC) Occurring Within Components of Advanced Maritime Systems
  Dr B Connolly
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a full time PhD studentship in the Department of Materials at the University of Manchester. The project is supported by BAE Systems, who will provide both industrial supervision, access to research facilities and secondments during the studentship.
  Peptide surfactants for bacterial biofilms
  Dr T Waigh
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This Manchester/Melbourne scheme involves a paired collaboration of academics in both Manchester Physics and Microbiology with their equivalents at the University of Melbourne Chemistry and Microbiology.
  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.
