  Determining novel molecular regulators of necrosis controlling premature cell death
  Dr Y Fan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Necrosis, a form of premature cell death, is frequently caused by excessive insults such as trauma, infection and toxins. It has been implicated in many human diseases including cancer, neurodegenerative disorders and inflammatory diseases.
  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 role of pore-forming bacterial proteins in pneumonia and meningitis
  Prof T J Mitchell, Dr M Tomlinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The bacterium Streptococcus pneumoniae (the pneumococcus) is carried in the nasopharynx of most children and some adults without causing disease.
  Regulation of apoptosis-induced compensatory cell proliferation and its implications for cancer and tissue regeneration
  Dr Y Fan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In multi-cellular organisms, coordinated cell death (e.g. apoptosis) and cell replacement is critical for tissue recovery in response to stress or damage.
  Modelling and optimising microbial nutrient cycling for the promotion of a circular bioeconomy(Project fully funded for 3.5 years)
  Prof J Mcgrath, Dr J Chin
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Although microbial communities play major biogeochemical roles in all ecosystems, driving carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus cycling, they remain only crudely represented in existing biogeochemical models of these systems.
  MSc by Research programme: Molecular mechanisms of cortical tumour suppressors
  Dr J Januschke
Application Deadline: 16 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This course allows you to work alongside our world renowned experts from the School of Life Sciences and gain a ’real research’ experience.
  Bacterial lipocalins: Novel role in bacterial protection against antibiotic-induced membrane lipid peroxidation
  Research Group: Centre for Experimental Medicine
  Prof M Valvano
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We recently discovered that bacteria can resist antibiotics by mechanisms operating extracellularly in response to near-lethal antibiotic concentrations.
  Regulation of virulence and biofilm formation by quorum sensing and the "stress alarmone" ppGpp in gram-negative pathogenic bacteria.
  Dr M Welch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are investigating the complex interplay between cell-cell signalling (quorum sensing), microbial lifestyle (i.e., free-living planktonic cultures vs sessile biofilm communities), growth phase and virulence in gram-negative bacteria.
  Biogenesis of the Clostridium difficile cell surface
  Dr R Fagan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in our hospitals. Infection normally follows disruption of the gut normal flora by broad-spectrum antibiotic treatment.
  Functional analysis of novel genes important in the physiology and pathogenesis of the human pathogen Campylobacter jejuni
  Prof D J Kelly
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Campylobacter jejuni and E. coli are the commonest cause of human bacterial gastroenteritis worldwide. Although pathogenic in humans, C.
  MSc by Research Programme: Biological and molecular mechanisms underlying a new syndromic form of X-linked intellectual disability
  Dr D M F Van Aalten
Application Deadline: 16 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This course allows you to work alongside our world renowned experts from the School of Life Sciences and gain a ’real research’ experience.
  Functional characterization of Neisserial toxin-antitoxin systems
  Dr N Oldfield, Dr D Turner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Toxin-antitoxin (TA) systems are commonly found in both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria and comprise a stable toxin able to stall bacterial replication and an antitoxin that neutralises the activity of the toxin.
  Deciphering the Built Environment Microbiome (Ref: ET20/HLS/APP/SHERRY)
  Dr A Sherry
Application Deadline: 1 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The impact that the construction of new dwellings has on our rural and urban environments is still in its infancy. Understanding this is of the utmost importance as the UK government has pledged to build half a million homes between 2020 and 2022 to meet the demand of a growing population.
  Role of metal resistance in foodborne bacterial disease
  Dr J Morrissey, Prof J M Ketley
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Foodborne infectious diseases are frequent and growing public health problems worldwide (World Health Organisation).
  MSc by Research Programme: Does increasing stability of Notch affect formation of the segmented body axis?
  Prof J K Dale
Application Deadline: 16 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This course allows you to work alongside our world renowned experts from the School of Life Sciences and gain a ’real research’ experience.
