  Structural and time-resolved studies of phage replication in bacterial biofilm
  Dr P Plevka
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

When Staphylococcus aureus cells form a biofilm in the human body they become shielded from the immune system and highly resistant to antibiotics.
  Bacteriophages of Gram positive bacteria: gateways to infection control
  Dr G Xia, Prof J P Derrick
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Evolutionary genomics of bacteria-phage co-evolution
  Research Group: Microbial Genomics
  Dr R Mostowy
Application Deadline: 30 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are inviting applications for a research technician (with an option of becoming a PhD student) in the area of computational biology and genomics of bacteria-phage interactions.
  Multi-scale network reconstruction and modelling of phage – bacteria interactions
  Dr J-M Schwartz, Prof S Lovell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Identification of novel complement evasion mechanisms developed by bacterial pathogens
  Prof A Blom, Prof S Rooijakkers
Application Deadline: 10 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project is focused on discovery of new complement evasion mechanisms developed by bacterial pathogens. One of the studied bacteria will be opportunistic Filifactor alocis, a recently identified periodontal pathogen of major importance but still poorly studied.
  Complement resistance mechanisms by multi-drug resistant Klebsiella pneumonia
  Prof S Rooijakkers, Prof A Blom
Application Deadline: 10 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to characterize complement evasion molecules in the opportunistic bacterium Klebsiella pneumoniae (K. pneumoniae) where carbapenem-resistance grew from 1.6% to 10.4% in 10 years.
  Novel microbial source tracking markers for identification of fecal contaminations in inflow rivers of Taihu Lake
  Dr S Raju, Prof A J McCarthy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This opportunity is open until position has been filled. The PhD studentship is available for three years subject to satisfactory progress by the student.
  Pyocins as alternatives to antibiotics against Pseudomonas aeruginosa infections
  Dr C Penfold
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pyocins are bacteriocins produced by Pseudomonas aeruginosa to kill closely related strains of the same species during times of environmental stress.
  Novel microbial source tracking markers for identification of fecal contaminations in inflow rivers of Taihu Lake
  Dr S Raju, Prof A J McCarthy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The urban water system in China faces various challenges. Fecal pollution is one of the major concerns to watersheds. Taihu Lake serves as important drinking water source for many nearby cities in addition to many other roles including aquaculture, transportation and tourism.
