  Clostridium difficile in Australian horse populations
  Prof T V Riley
Application Deadline: 30 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The anaerobic spore-forming bacterium Clostridium difficile is a major human pathogen, the most commonly diagnosed cause of infectious hospital diarrhoea.
  Hybrid beam-driven plasma wakefield acceleration for highest brightness beams
  Prof B Hidding
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are on a quest towards ultracompact electron accelerators and 5th generation light sources -- transformative ultrafast microscopes for the 21st century.
  Fluency and Context in Recognition Memory
  Dr J Taylor, Dr A Kafkas
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project relates to a sort of ‘memory illusion’. On a recognition memory test, increasing the perceptual fluency of a test cue increases the likelihood that the word will be endorsed as ‘familiar’, even if it hasn’t been seen in the study phase (and therefore should have been called ‘new’).
  Bacterial iron uptake pathways as targets for the development of novel antimicrobials
  Dr M Thomas
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance is an ever increasing problem. Presently it is estimated to be responsible for 700,000 deaths p.a. and it is predicted that this figure will rise to 10 million by 2050.
  Investigating the effect of rider weight on back kinematics in healthy sport horses
  Prof K Nankervis
Application Deadline: 29 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this studentship is to investigate the effects of rider weight on equine back posture and kinematics. We will use a combination of 3D motion capture and inertial motion sensor technology (IMUs) to measure back angle changes under the saddle using IMUs.
  Phage therapy as a treatment of Equine Strangles, and causative bacterial pathogen Streptococcus equi (ref: SF20/APP/SMITH4)
  Dr D Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Streptococcus equi is an important equine bacterial pathogen causing the disease ‘strangles’, which affects both Thoroughbred and non-Thoroughbred horses around the world.
  Hybrid plasma wakefield acceleration
  Dr B Hidding
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Electron-driven plasma wakefield acceleration (PWFA) allows production of electron beams with energy gains and brightness orders of magnitude larger than with state-of-the-art accelerators via the plasma photocathode (dubbed “Trojan Horse”) approach [1,2].
