  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.
  Proteins in the biofilm matrix
  Dr N Stanley-Wall
Application Deadline: 14 December 2018
Biofilm formation is the process by which single celled microbes form an adherent community. Bacillus subtilis is a Gram-positive bacterium that lives in the soil and can form biofilms on the roots of plants.
  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.
  The role of efflux systems in antimicrobial susceptibility and virulence of the urinary tract pathogen Proteus mirabilis
  Dr B V Jones
Application Deadline: 16 December 2018
SUPERVISORY TEAM. Lead supervisor. Dr Brian Jones, Department of Biology & Biochemistry, University of Bath. Co-supervisors. Dr Mark Sutton (Public Health England), Dr K Miraz Rahaman (King’s College London).
  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.
  Modelling the mechanisms of olive die back caused by Xylella fastidiosa biofilms
  Prof T. Roose, Dr S White
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Project Rationale. Plant health is crucially important for food production and the preservation of biodiversity.
  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.
  NERC Panorama Doctoral Training Partnership - Tricky, Sticky Stuff: developing new ways to look at what makes up sedimentary biofilms in marine, river and hot spring settings
  Dr M Rogerson
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Since the Archean, microbes have been present in every environment on Earth, and today at least half of global biomass is prokaryotic.
