  Investigating the molecular basis of bacterial pathogenicity of invertebrates
  Prof R W Jackson
Applications accepted all year round
Pseudomonas syringae bacteria are common within the environment and can infect a wide range of plant species. These bacteria employ a diverse arsenal of virulence factors to attack plants.
  Understanding Xylella fastidiosa, a globally challenging plant pathogen - studies in pathogenicity and population genomics
  Prof R W Jackson
Applications accepted all year round
This is an exciting PhD opportunity working with the University of Reading. It will focus on applying advanced sequencing technologies and population genomics to understand a globally challenging plant pathogen that currently threatens worldwide horticulture.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Investigating copper storage in Pseudomonas aeruginosa and its role in pathogenicity
  Prof C Dennison, Dr A De Soyza, Prof C Winstanley
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Background. This interdisciplinary project bridges world-leading labs with expertise in bacterial cell biology and infection. Novel therapies are needed to overcome increasing antibacterial resistance.
  Identification of colistin resistant gene, mcr-1, in clinical isolated Enterobacteriaceae and characterisation of pathogenicity and virulence of mcr-1 harboured bacterial pathogens
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr C Chang, Dr J N Fletcher
Applications accepted all year round
Globally, infectious disease accounts for more than 13 million deaths a year and is one of the main causes of death around the world, predominantly in developing countries.
  Race structure and pathogenicity mechanisms in Pseudomonas syringae pv. syringae, the causal agent of brown spot of Phaseolus vulgaris (common bean)
  Prof G Preston
Applications accepted all year round
BACKGROUND. Beans provide one of the most important staple sources of dietary protein in many parts of Africa and worldwide, and are an important part of the horticultural export market.
  Powdery mildew resistance in strawberry fruit (Ref: CTP_FCR_2019_7)
  Dr H Cockerton, Dr B Li, Prof J M Dunwell
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
The Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC ) have awarded a Collaborative Training Partnership (CTP) grant to a consortium led by Berry Gardens Growers Ltd and NIAB EMR.
  Global analysis of evasive strategies developed by Staphylococcus aureus to circumvent complement and innate immunity
  Dr M Laabei
Application Deadline: 24 February 2019
Staphylococcus aureus is an important human pathogen responsible for a wide-spectrum of diseases that range from mild superficial skin diseases to life-threatening infections.
  Use of novel technologies for reasoned identification of antifungal drug targets: sulphur metabolism in Aspergillus fumigatus.
  Prof E Bignell, Dr J Amich
Applications accepted all year round
Fungal diseases kill more than 1.5 million and affect over a billion people worldwide. Azoles are the only orally available antifungals and resistance to these drugs is increasing, which translates into a rise in mortality.
  **MRes Application of Biosurfactants as anti-biofilm agents
  Dr F Stainsby, Dr H Vaughan
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The global rise of antimicrobial resistance has potentially devastating consequences, particularly within the healthcare sector, and requires urgent attention.
  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Native Mass Spectrometry approaches for Electron and Photon mediated Top Down Sequencing of Biotherapeutics
  Prof P Barran, Dr B Bellina
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
In this project we propose to develop electron and photon mediated top-down sequencing methods to analyse recombinant biological therapeutics including monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) and adeno-associated viral (AAV) vectors.
