  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.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: The making of a Super Bug. Understanding the mechanisms of high level antibiotic resistance in Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)
  Prof S J Foster, Prof N Zenkin
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Supervisor. Professor Simon Foster (University of Sheffield). Co-supervisor. Professor Nikolay Zenkin (University of Newcastle). Background Information.
  Staphylococcus aureus Infection Dynamics
  Prof S J Foster
Applications accepted all year round
S. aureus is a major human pathogen of increasing importance due to the spread of antibiotic resistance. It can cause a wide range of diseases, from superficial skin infections to life threatening endocarditis and septicaemia.
  Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry and A*STAR PhD Studentship: Interactions between skin microbes and keratinocytes in individuals of Bangladeshi and Singapore-Chinese ethnicity with severe atopic eczema
  Prof E O'Toole
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry at Queen Mary University of London and A*STAR PhD Studentship. Interactions between skin microbes and keratinocytes in individuals of Bangladeshi and Singapore-Chinese ethnicity with severe atopic eczema.
  PhD In Infection & Immunity - Profiling superantigen-induced immunosupression of unconventional T cells during severe sepsis
  Dr J McLaren, Prof M Eberl, Prof D Price
Application Deadline: 27 February 2019
Sepsis is a life-threatening illness that is triggered by an exaggerated immune response to severe infection. This unbalanced reaction induces hyperinflammation, shock and organ dysfunction that forms the primary cause of death in hospitalised patients.
  Structural and time-resolved studies of phage replication in bacterial biofilm
  Dr P Plevka
Application Deadline: 3 February 2019
When Staphylococcus aureus cells form a biofilm in the human body they become shielded from the immune system and highly resistant to antibiotics.
  Chronic Wounds and Infection - impact on diabetic patients
  Research Group: Centre for Skin Sciences
  Dr M J Thornton, Dr J N Fletcher
Applications accepted all year round
Non-healing chronic wounds present a significant clinical challenge. In Europe, the cost of wound management accounts for 2%–4% of the health care budget and the complications associated with impaired wound healing can have a significant, long-term effect on the morbidity, mortality, and quality of life for patients.
  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.
  Adjuvant therapies for mupirocin-resistant bacteria
  Dr B Bonev, Dr A Cockayne
Applications accepted all year round
Multi-drug resistant Staphylococcus aureus has been able to adapt constantly to therapeutic use of antibiotics and remains an important source of clinical complications, morbidity and mortality.
  Characterising the mechanisms behind bacterial survival and antimicrobial tolerance in host cells using live-cell imaging
  Dr R Corrigan, Prof S Renshaw
Application Deadline: 30 January 2019
Our work is focused on understanding how the human pathogen Staphylococcus aureus can survive, promote antimicrobial tolerance and chronic infections, when starved of nutrients.
