  Antimicrobial resistance and One Health: foodborne carriage of antimicrobial resistance markers (RDF19/HLS/AS/FOX)
  Dr E Fox
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Antimicrobial resistance is among the largest threats to human health, with the emergence of multidrug resistant bacterial infections meaning traditional treatment approaches are being rendered ineffective.
  High sensitivity micro/nano optical fibre sensor for pathogens detection (Advert Reference: RDF19/EE/MPEE/WU)
  Dr Q Wu
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Earlier diagnostic/detection for diseases (cancer, chronic or foodborne) enables doctors making a rapid clinical decision, which considerably enhances the success of treatment and medical intervention and ultimately benefits to human health.
  Investigating the efficacy of novel antimicrobial mixes on microorganisms, surfaces and cells lines; an integrated study
  Dr A Kelly, Dr S Schwikkard, Prof D Wertheim
Applications accepted all year round
The projection that within 50 years there will be more deaths from antimicrobial resistance than through cancer highlights the continual need for mining new and novel antimicrobials with activity against planktonic microbes and biofilms alike1.
  Understanding Salmonella-Plant Interactions and Signalling: Implications in Fresh Produce Safety and Control
  Dr A Khan
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Salmonella are responsible for causing food poisoning and remain major global health problems. The bacteria reside in the intestines of humans and animals, and now it appears they can adhere to or colonise edible-plants.
  Persistence of the Listeria monocytogenes in food processing environments: Unravelling the mechanisms using omics approaches (ref: SF18/APP/FOX)
  Dr E Fox
Applications accepted all year round
The pathogenic bacterium Listeria monocytogenes causes the severe disease listeriosis, which is associated with high mortality rates of approximately 20%.
  Up to 100 PhD studentships
Northumbria University is a research-rich, business focused, professional university with a global reputation for academic excellence.
  Iron Homeostasis in Bacterial Plant Colonization and Disease
  Dr A Holmes, Dr N Holden, Prof S C Andrews
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Iron is an essential nutrient in all orders of life. Since uptake is hampered by insolubility, plants and bacteria have evolved mechanisms for active sequestration, through the secretion of chelators called siderophores, and uptake via transport mechanisms.
  Understanding Gram-negative envelope biogenesis using genome-wide approaches.
  Dr M Banzhaf
Applications accepted all year round
Many Gram-negative bacteria are common foodborne pathogens. Most often strains belong to the genera of Escherichia, Salmonella and Campylobacter.
  Genotype-to-structure: analysis of the glycosylation of the flagella of Campylobacter jejuni, a major cause of food-borne gastroenteritis
  Dr C D Bayliss, Prof J Ketley
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Campylobacter jejuni is the major causative agent of foodborne gastroenteritis across Europe. Contaminated chicken meat is the main source of infections and hence control of this pathogen is critical to food security in the poultry industry.
