  Biophysical modelling of bacterial cell wall architectures
  Research Group: Biological Physics
  Dr B Chakrabarti
Application Deadline: 23 January 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.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: How do superbugs hide from the host? Understanding the mechanisms of innate immune evasion in the opportunistic pathogen Enterococcus faecalis
  Dr S Mesnage, Dr P Elks
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
All enterococci produce a surface polysaccharide called the enterococcal polysaccharide antigen (EPA) that plays a key role during pathogenesis (Mistou et al., 2016).
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: How do superbugs hide from the host? Understanding the mechanisms of innate immune evasion in the opportunistic pathogen Enterococcus faecalis
  Dr S Mesnage, Dr P Elks

  Diatoms for the efficient trapping of solar energy
  Dr K Ryan, Dr Gerald Smith
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
A PhD scholarship in biological nanostructures is offered for experimental research into marine diatoms, and in particular to study their outer cell wall that functions as an efficient trap for solar energy.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: The making of a Super Bug. Understanding the mechanisms of high level antibiotic resistance in Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)
  Prof S J Foster, Prof N Zenkin
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Supervisor. Professor Simon Foster (University of Sheffield). Co-supervisor. Professor Nikolay Zenkin (University of Newcastle). Background Information.
  Peptidomimetic Inhibitors for the MraY-protein E interaction site as anti-Pseudomonas therapeutics
  Prof T Bugg
Application Deadline: 14 February 2019
PhD in Interdisciplinary Biomedical Research. Fully funded studentship available for entry in September 2019. This Industrial Collaborative Award in Science and Engineering (iCASE) studentship is offered by Warwick’s MRC Funded Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP).
