  The diagnosis and assessment of respiratory disease with a novel technology
  Dr R Bruce
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

  Prof G Miles, Dr S Sharples
Application Deadline: 1 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Neural Control of Movement Lab (http://ncm.wp.st-andrews.ac.uk), within the School of Psychology & Neuroscience at the University of St Andrews (Scotland, UK), currently has a PhD studentship available (beginning January, 2021) for an enthusiastic and highly motivated student with a background in neuroscience.
  The effect of air pollution on the behaviour of bacteria
  Dr J Morrissey, Prof J Ketley, Prof P W Andrew, Prof P Monks
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is at the cutting edge of investigations of the increase in infection resulting from airborne pollution. Air pollution is the world’s largest single environmental health risk, being responsible for an eighth of all global deaths per year (World Health Organisation, 2017).
  Developing an intervention to maximise nurse antibiotic prescribing for Upper Respiratory Tract Infections (URTI).
  Research Group: Safeguarding Health through Infection Prevention
  Dr V Ness, Dr L Price, Dr K McAloney-Kocaman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ref. SHLS20034 Ness. Antimicrobial resistance is a public health priority with human, financial and social costs. One of the main contributors to this resistance is the inappropriate prescribing of antibiotics.
  The role of bacteriophages in Pseudomonas aeruginosa infection in Chronic Respiratory disease. (Ref: SF20/APP/SMITH1)
  Dr D Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a key opportunistic respiratory pathogen in patients with cystic fibrosis and non-cystic fibrosis bronchiectasis.

  Dr M Tunney, Prof JS Elborn
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In people with Cystic Fibrosis, acute infective exacerbations or ‘flare-ups’ of chronic respiratory infection are the single most important cause of poor outcome and are associated with increased symptoms, reduced lung function and local and systemic inflammation.

We invite applications for a 3-year PhD position, funded by the University of Nottingham to study ‘Big Data driven treatments for Pulmonary Fibrosis’.
  The effect of air pollution on the interaction between bacteria and bacteriophage
  Dr J Morrissey, Prof M Clokie, Dr A Millard
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Air pollution is the world’s largest single environmental health risk, being responsible for an eighth of all global deaths per year (World Health Organisation, 2017).
  Determining the microbiome of the homes of people with chronic respiratory diseases
  Dr D Gilpin, Dr D Downey
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In recent years, our understanding of the microbial world in and around us has radically changed. The idea that we live with a complex and diverse community of microbes, has moved us away from a “hygiene hypothesis”, where having less bacteria was, to put it simply, better.
