  Regulation of neuronal excitability and synaptic transmission by metabolic demand in health and disease
  Prof I D Forsythe, Dr J Steinert
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
The brain uses vast metabolic resources to maintain electrical excitability and to integrate sensory information (Harris et al., 2012).
  Trans-generational transmission of obesity and obesity-induced liver disease – a role for maternal microbiota and Toll-like receptors
  Dr J Oben, Dr P Taylor
Application Deadline: 5 April 2019
The United Kingdom adult population prevalence of obesity is 30% and with 30% of children - overweight or obese. Additionally, 26% of women of reproductive age are obese and one in five pregnant women is obese.
  Mathematical modelling of electrical power systems for a low-carbon future
  Dr B Mestel
Application Deadline: 12 April 2019
Aims. 1. To develop and study models of an electrical power grid operating under various future energy scenarios including a high level of renewables, including using electricity price as a control parameter.
  Understanding how mutability facilitates survival of alternating selection and bottlenecks by the major food-borne pathogen Campylobacter jejuni
  Dr C D Bayliss, Dr A Morozov
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
Bacterial pathogens are subject to two strong pressures during spread within and transmission between hosts.
  Understanding hospital transmission of the emerging pathogen Candida auris
  Dr R Kean, Dr J Butcher, Dr L Price
Application Deadline: 14 April 2019
Candida auris is a fungal pathogen that since 2009 has spontaneously emerged worldwide, causing a number of hospital outbreaks globally [1].
  Inter-species transmission of Mycobacterium Avium Paratuberculosis (MAP) sheep and beef cattle farming systems – understanding risk factors and impact on livestock productivity.
  Dr P Davies, Prof N Williams
Application Deadline: 15 April 2019
A fantastic opportunity for a self-motivated person to be at the forefront of researching an emerging ‘iceberg’ animal disease of sheep and cattle.
  Medical Research Foundation National PhD Training Programme in Antimicrobial Resistance Research: Genomics and Metagenomics of Animal, Environmental and Human Samples to Understand Resistance Gene Transmission Amongst Enterobacteriaceae in Oxfordshire
  Prof S Walker, Dr H S Gweon, Dr D Read, Dr N Stoesser
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a major health concern and is exemplified by the rapid emergence of AMR in several key species of the bacterial family of Enterobacteriaceae, such as Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Understanding the mechanisms of HIV-1 infection using mathematical modelling and phylogenetics
  Dr K Atkins, Prof J Albert, Dr S Hué, Dr A Best
Application Deadline: 8 April 2019
Background. If HIV-1 infection is left untreated the viral load of chronically infected individuals can rise to million copies per millilitre of blood with hundreds of genetic variants.
  Wide-band optical fibre amplifiers for the next generation of internet
  Research Group: Fibre & Systems Group
  Prof D Richardson
Application Deadline: 31 August 2019
Supervisor. Professor David Richardson FRS, FREng. Co-supervisor. Dr Lin Xu. Project description.
  Localising all individual atoms in a nanoparticle in 3D by scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM) tomography
  Dr W Theis
Applications accepted all year round
We have demonstrated the ability to map all individual atoms in the 3500-atom apex of a tungsten tip. The PhD project involves developping instrumentation and methodology for high-throughput tomography of nanoparticles using the apex of tungsten tips as tomography supports..
