  Biophysical modelling of bacterial cell wall architectures
  Research Group: Biological Physics
  Dr B Chakrabarti
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Bacterial cell walls are examples of self-assembled composite structures that are formed out of equilibrium. In recent times the text book view of bacterial cell wall has been modified as a result of high resolution imaging studies[1, 2].
  The Bacterial Cell Wall in Life and Death
  Prof S J Foster
Applications accepted all year round
The bacterial cell wall is essential for viability. The synthesis of its major structural polymer, peptidoglycan, is the target of crucial antibiotics such as penicillin and vancomycin.
  Structure, Function and Biogenesis of the Mycobacterial Cell Wall
  Prof G Besra
Applications accepted all year round
There has been no significant decrease in worldwide mortality due to tuberculosis (TB) since before the time of Koch; the advent of sanatoria and chemotherapy, which drastically reduced TB in the more developed countries, has had no profound effect on the global problem.
  Chemical and biological studies on antibiotics to Target Bacterial Cell wall Synthesis
  Dr I Singh
Applications accepted all year round
Fee Waiver Scholarships for MSc by Research. Chemical and biological studies on antibiotics to Target Bacterial Cell wall Synthesis.
  Bacteriophages of Gram positive bacteria: gateways to infection control
  Dr G Xia, Prof J P Derrick
Applications accepted all year round
The rise in antibiotic resistance has prompted a renewed interest in bacteriophage research. A study of the molecular basis for recognition of the bacterial host has applications in detection, vaccine design and control of bacterial infections.
  Functional genomics approaches to manipulating Bordetella pertussis outer membrane synthesis for vaccine development
  Dr A Preston
Application Deadline: 23 April 2019
Supervisory team. Dr Andrew Preston, University of Bath (lead supervisor). Dr Rosanna Leuzzi, GSK Biologicals, Siena (industrial co-supervisor).
  Structural studies of the bacterial type II secretion system
  Prof R W Pickersgill, Dr V Darbari
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
A QMUL Principal’s Postgraduate Research Studentship is available in the group of Professor Richard Pickersgill, starting in September 2019.
  Plant responses to stress, metabolites for health and fuel from cell walls.
  Prof A Devoto
Applications accepted all year round
Projects are available in the following areas. Stress responses in crops and sustainable biomass production and processing. The project aims at elucidating several aspects of the control of plant defences and to identify environmentally friendly forms of plant protectants, leading to enhanced crop yields.
  Dissecting cell complexity using super-resolution microscopy, one molecule at a time
  Research Group: Physics of Life - Biological Physics and Biophysics
  Prof M Leake, Prof A J Wilkinson
Application Deadline: 1 September 2019
The stress response of sporulation in bacteria is a fantastically system for studying biophysics processes of emergent complexity.
  Elucidating the pathobiology of Candida albicans
  Dr R Hall
Applications accepted all year round
The Hall lab is interested in understanding the biology and virulence factors of fungal pathogens. Our research largely focuses on the opportunistic fungal pathogen Candida albicans, which causes a range of infections from superficial mucosal infections (i.e.
