  Immune-mediated control of epithelial integrity: Does the immune response to influenza infection cause long-term changes in lung function?
  Dr G Perona-Wright, Dr L Yrlid
Application Deadline: 21 March 2019
Surviving influenza infection requires a careful balance between factors that promote immunity and eradicate the virus and factors that limit the immune response and minimise damage to the lung epithelium.
  Deciphering Aspergillus fumigatus - Pseudomonas aeruginosa synergistic interactions in coinfection
  Dr J Amich, Prof E Bignell, Dr S Fowler
Applications accepted all year round
Pathogen-pathogen interactions in polymicrobial infections are known to directly impact, often to worsen, disease outcomes. Aspergillus fumigatus is the most common fungal pathogen and Pseudomonas aeruginosa one of the most prevalent bacterial pathogens of the human lung.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Understanding the mechanisms of HIV-1 infection using mathematical modelling and phylogenetics
  Dr K Atkins, Prof J Albert, Dr S Hué, Dr A Best
Application Deadline: 8 April 2019
Background. If HIV-1 infection is left untreated the viral load of chronically infected individuals can rise to million copies per millilitre of blood with hundreds of genetic variants.
  Nanoparticle-containing antimicrobial coatings, validation in laboratory tissue model of orthopaedic prosthesis
  Dr T Nichol, Prof T J Smith, Prof C Le Maitre
Application Deadline: 12 April 2019
Hypothesis. An antimicrobial sol-gel coating containing nanoparticles can be developed for prosthetic devices, and shown to be effective in a novel 3D tissue culture model of orthopaedic infections.
  Modelling Candida albicans infection of the human gut using human intestinal organoid cultures
  Dr S Gratz, Prof C Munro, Dr D MacCallum
Application Deadline: 12 April 2019
Fungal infections pose a major public health problem, and understanding how infection starts is crucial for developing effective treatments and prevent further disease.
  Immune Development in a Piglet Model of Environmental Enteric Dysfunction
  Dr M Lewis, Prof G Gibson
Applications accepted all year round
Summary. Environmental enteric dysfunction (EED) affects 200 million children in low- and middle-income countries and has extremely detrimental consequences for long-term health.
  Microverse Doctoral Researcher Project No: 08/2019The alveolar microbiota community and its effect on infection development in a human alveolus-on-a-chip model
  Prof B Löffler
Application Deadline: 20 March 2019
The Cluster of Excellence “Balance of the Microverse” of the Friedrich Schiller University Jena, Germany, combines expertise in life, material, optical and computational sciences to elevate microbiome studies from descriptive to hypothesis-driven and functional analyses.
  A decision-support modelling toolset for anthrax infection and treatment
  Prof C Molina-París
Applications accepted all year round
The aim of this PhD project is to develop an anthrax modelling toolset, which can be used to inform hazard assessment, operational analysis and medical counter-measure studies.
  Development of antimicrobial-impregnated catheter coatings to prevent uropathogenic Escherichia coli infection
  Dr S Forbes, Dr M Lacey, Dr T Nichol, Prof T J Smith
Application Deadline: 29 April 2019
Faculty of Health & Wellbeing, Sheffield Hallam University. Biomolecular Sciences Research Centre. PhD Research Studentship (full-time for 3 years).
  Staphylococcus aureus Infection Dynamics
  Prof S J Foster
Applications accepted all year round
S. aureus is a major human pathogen of increasing importance due to the spread of antibiotic resistance. It can cause a wide range of diseases, from superficial skin infections to life threatening endocarditis and septicaemia.
