Antibiotic resistance in pathogenic bacteria is one of the greatest health challenges facing humanity today.
  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.

  Recover, Recycle, Reengineer: A microbial and biotechnological solution to tackle the waste tyre problem
  Research Group: Institute of Life and Earth Sciences
  Dr J Pratscher
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are seeking applicants for a 4-year funded BBSRC IBioIC CTP industrial PhD studentship, starting 14 September 2020. Used rubber tyres, particularly when disposed to landfill, have been recognised to fast becoming one of the foremost environmental waste problems in the world.
  Investigation of a probiotic strain of Lactobacillus plantarum 2025 and the development of novel antibacterials
  Prof A Karlyshev
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The rise of multidrug resistant forms of microbial pathogens imposes a serious problem to public health worldwide. The rapid spread of antimicrobial resistance is associated with misuse of conventional antibiotics.
  Listeria monocytogenes in food supply chains – the persistent pathogen (Ref: SF20/APP/FOX)
  Dr E Fox
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The foodborne pathogen Listeria monocytogenes is an important contaminant of food products and associated supply chains, and has caused significant outbreaks of disease through consumption of contaminated food products.
  Macrophage-bacteria interactions in cystic fibrosis: the cellular microbiology of the novel opportunistic bacterium Achromobacter species
  Research Group: Centre for Experimental Medicine
  Prof M Valvano
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chronic infection and persistent inflammation in people with cystic fibrosis (PWCF) lead to progressive lung damage.
  Computer Simulations of G protein-coupled Receptors
  Dr I Tikhonova
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many physiological processes are controlled through the activation of G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) by regulatory peptides, making peptide GPCRs particularly useful targets for major human diseases such as diabetes and CNS diseases.
  Therapeutic models for Spinal muscular atrophy
  Prof R Yáñez-Muñoz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our laboratory works on Gene Therapy in the Central Nervous System and Gene Repair, using novel viral vectors, gene targeting and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) as core technologies.
  Integrating chemocatalysis and biocatalysis to create new synthetic pathways (iCBPATH)
  Prof J Micklefield, Prof M Greaney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project, we aim to combine the power of enzymatic C-H bond functionalisation and transition metal catalysis to construct complex molecules in a single reaction providing new, more efficient and rapid routes to pharmaceuticals and other essential products.
  Control of Parathyroid Hormone Secretion
  Dr D Ward, Dr J Bruce
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The regulation of parathyroid hormone (PTH) secretion is of fundamental importance for calcium homeostasis and in mineral conditions affecting bone and the kidneys.
  Probing the organization and function of bacterial toxin-antitoxin complexes
  Dr F Hayes, Prof J P Derrick
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacterial toxin-antitoxin (TA) modules typically consist of a pair of genes that encode for a stable toxin protein and an unstable cognate antitoxin molecule.
  Effects of transcription on genome stability
  Prof N J Savery
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Transcription-coupled DNA repair (TCR) pathways prioritise the repair of certain lesions in "active" genes. These pathways help maintain genome integrity throughout the lifetime of multi-cellular organisms, and thus help prevent the occurrence of mutation that might cause cancer or other disorders.
  Neurotransmitter gated channels - relating structure to function
  Prof S C R Lummis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The 5-HT3 receptor is a member of the family of neurotransmitter gated ion channels that includes nicotinic acetylcholine, GABA and glycine receptors.
