  Quantifying the effects of bacteria-phage interactions on daily micronutrient cycling in freshwater ecosystems. NERC FRESH CDT studentship, PhD in Biosciences
  Dr I Gudelj
Application Deadline: 17 December 2018
Lead Supervisor. Professor Ivana Gudelj, University of Exeter. Additional Supervisors. Dr Craig Barker-Austin, CEFAS. Dr Andrew Singer, CEH.
  Unravelling evolutionary mechanisms of phage-bacteria interactions in spatially structured microbial communities
  Dr V Friman, Dr P Fogg, Dr S D Johnson
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The rapid rise of antibiotic resistance has made many clinical antibiotics ineffective. One way to increase the efficiency of antibiotics is to use them in combination with bacteria-specific viruses, phages.
  Are farm animal-associated Salmonella hyper-susceptible to bacteriophage killing?
  Prof J Hinton
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium (S. Typhimurium) is a bacterial pathogen that generally causes gastroenteritis in humans.
  Phage WO as a vehicle to transform Wolbachia, a symbiont of major crop pests
  Dr B Makepeace
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Wolbachia, an obligate intracellular bacterium, is the commonest animal symbiont on Earth. Certain strains have spread throughout arthropod populations worldwide, in part due to the reproductive manipulations they induce in their hosts.
  Bacteriophages of Gram positive bacteria: gateways to infection control
  Dr G Xia, Prof J P Derrick
Applications accepted all year round
The rise in antibiotic resistance has prompted a renewed interest in bacteriophage research. A study of the molecular basis for recognition of the bacterial host has applications in detection, vaccine design and control of bacterial infections.
  Validating “undruggable” or orphan cancer targets by combining fragment based screening peptidomimetic chemistry, phage display, structural biology and cell biology.
  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
  Prof M Auer, Dr J Arulanandam
Application Deadline: 13 December 2018
In comparison to prominent and successful target classes like GPCRs, the success rate in targeting protein – protein interactions (PPIs) is very low.
  An investigation of soil bacteriophages associated with positive and poor crop outcome
  Prof M Clokie
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
There is an increasing awareness that the microbial composition of soil can impact the productivity of crop plants. Bacteria have key roles in increasing the ability of plants to take up nutrients and to combat pathogenic bacteria.
  Characterising Clostridium difficile defence strategies against bacteriophages
  Prof M Clokie, Dr A Millard
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Healthcare associated infections are a major problem for patients and a global health challenge. Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) is particularly problematic, for example the UK has ~20,000 infectious diarrhoeal cases every year, and progressive complications can lead to death in ~3% of infected patients.
  Multi-scale network reconstruction and modelling of phage – bacteria interactions
  Dr J-M Schwartz, Prof S Lovell
Applications accepted all year round
Bacteriophages are viruses that infect bacteria. They are seen as a promising alternative to antibiotics, particularly as multi-resistant bacterial strains are becoming more widespread and could one day render existing antibiotic therapies ineffective.
  Antibiotic exposure impacts on fish health in natural freshwaters. NERC FRESH CDT studentship, PhD in Biosciences
  Prof C R Tyler
Application Deadline: 17 December 2018
Lead Supervisor. Professor Charles Tyler. Additional Supervisors. Dr David Bass, Centre for Enviroment Fisheries and Aquaculture Sciences (CEFAS).
