  Genotype-to-structure: analysis of the glycosylation of the flagella of Campylobacter jejuni, a major cause of food-borne gastroenteritis
  Dr C D Bayliss, Prof J Ketley
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Campylobacter jejuni is the major causative agent of foodborne gastroenteritis across Europe. Contaminated chicken meat is the main source of infections and hence control of this pathogen is critical to food security in the poultry industry.
  Fungi: their interactions, virulence mechanisms and identification of novel antifungal compounds
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr R Hall
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Fungi are a major cause of infection worldwide with the following species being the most prevalent in human infections Candida, Aspergillus and Cryptococcus.
  Identification of colistin resistant gene, mcr-1, in clinical isolated Enterobacteriaceae and characterisation of pathogenicity and virulence of mcr-1 harboured bacterial pathogens
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr C Chang, Dr J N Fletcher
Applications accepted all year round
Globally, infectious disease accounts for more than 13 million deaths a year and is one of the main causes of death around the world, predominantly in developing countries.
  To experimentally determine the environmental influences acting on P. aeruginosa virulence factor expression in biofilms and understand the catalytic mechanism of one of them (the surface tethered aminopeptidase AaaA)
  Dr K Hardie
Applications accepted all year round
Pseudomonas aeruginosa is an important opportunistic pathogen. It is a problem for the immunocompromised and has attained superbug notoriety since it is evident in hospitals and has inherent resistance to antibiotics.
  Identifying new drugs to combat the virulence mechanisms underlying multidrug-resistant typhoid.
  Dr D Humphreys
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Multidrug-resistant typhoid. --------------------------------------------. The world is facing an epidemic of multidrug-resistant (MDR) typhoid fever.
  The role of two component signalling in the regulation of stress responses and virulence in the fungal phytopathogen, Zymoseptoria tritici
  Dr S Whitehall
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
This project will investigate the role that two component proteins play in the regulation of stress-activated MAP kinase (SAPK) signalling pathways in the fungal plant pathogen, Zymoseptoria tritici.
  The role of efflux systems in antimicrobial susceptibility and virulence of the urinary tract pathogen Proteus mirabilis
  Dr B V Jones
Application Deadline: 16 December 2018
SUPERVISORY TEAM. Lead supervisor. Dr Brian Jones, Department of Biology & Biochemistry, University of Bath. Co-supervisors. Dr Mark Sutton (Public Health England), Dr K Miraz Rahaman (King’s College London).
  Maintenance and regulation of virulence in Shigella
  Prof C Tang
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Shigella is a leading cause of bacillary dysentry worldwide. The bacterium invades intestinal epithelial cells by virtue of a specialised secretion system, the T3SS, which is encoded on a large virulence plasmid.
  Secretion of virulence determinants from Gram negative bacteria
  Dr S MacIntyre
Applications accepted all year round
The outer membrane (OM) of Gram negative bacteria is the interface between the bacterial cell and the environment. Many important virulence determinants of pathogenic bacteria are either embedded in this membrane or secreted across the membrane.
  Applying genomic surveillance to understand Leishmania infantum virulence in Brazil
  Dr D Jeffares, Prof J Mottram
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Leishmania infantum is a globally-distributed parasite that is transmitted via sand. flies. Leishmania infantum and the related Leishmania donovani cause 20,000-.
