  Microbiology PhD project: Elucidating the role of glycan-binding lectins in infections of ESKAPE bacterial pathogens - from molecular microbiology to clinical research
  Dr A Titz, Prof M Bischoff
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We have an opening for 1 PhD student in a joint research project between the Helmholtz Institute for Pharmaceutical Research Saarland (HIPS, Saarbrücken, Germany - a branch of the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research) and Saarland Medical University (UKS, Homburg, Germany).
  Analysis and Treatment of Orthopaedic Pin Site Infections
  Dr J McEvoy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pin site infections are a major complication of external fixation of fractures, and bacterial biofilms are known to form on the pin surface.1 This project, in collaboration with Dr Shobana Dissanayeke (RHUL) and St Peter’s Hospital, Chertsey, will investigate bacterial biofilms that have been obtained from percutaneous pins used in orthopaedic fixation frames.
  High-throughput discovery of novel antibiotics using synthetic microbiology
  Dr R Draheim
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a frequent problem in the treatment of disease caused by several clinical bacterial pathogens. In the European Union, antibiotic-resistant infections kill nearly 25,000 patients and represent a total expenditure of £1.5 billion per year.
  Characterisation of the genotype and phenotype of epithelial cells invaded by the periodontal pathogen Porphyromonas gingivalis.
  Dr S Whawell, Dr G Stafford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The presence of the Gram negative anaerobe Porphyromonas gingivalis is consistently associated with the more severe forms of periodontal disease and its ability to invade host epithelial cells is thought to be important in the pathogenesis of the disease.
  Silver ion-based antimicrobials: mechanisms of toxicity and resistance
  Dr G Mulley, Prof S C Andrews
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"The emergence and persistence of bacterial strains with resistance to multiple classes of antibiotics has led to renewed interest in the antimicrobial properties of silver ions.
  Using ATP to understand AMR: a modelling challenge (LANGRIDGEQ19DART)
  Dr G Langridge, Prof J Wain
Application Deadline: 11 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This collaborative project will assess the impact of antimicrobials upon ATP metabolism in uropathogenic bacteria. The results will aid the development of a clinical diagnostic test for urinary tract infections (UTIs) that can inform antimicrobial therapy.
  The role of Efflux in Antibiotic Resistance of Clinically Relevant Pathogens
  Dr J Blair
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antibiotics underpin all of modern medicine; they are used to treat bacterial infections, and to prevent infections after surgery and in patients with a suppressed immune system such as those undergoing cancer chemotherapy or organ transplantation.
  The impact of air pollution on bacteria colonisation and virulence.
  Dr J Morrissey, Prof J Ketley, Prof P W Andrew
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Air pollution is the world’s largest single environmental health risk, being responsible for an eighth of all global deaths per year (World Health Organisation, 2014).
  GW4 BioMed MRC DTP PhD studentship: Making Broken Bones Antimicrobial - Preventing Osteomyelitis Using a Targeted and Mineralising Liposomal Delivery System
  Dr WN Nishio Ayre, Prof J Birchall
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/October 2019.
  Defining diets to treat inborn errors of metabolism
  Dr T Johnson, Dr M Piper
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fully funded PhD scholarships are available for both Australian and international students through the School of Biological Sciences and Monash University.
