  GW4 BioMed MRC DTP PhD studentship: The role of virulence hotspots in parasitic nematode genomes
  Dr V Hunt
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the ‘GW4 BioMed MRC Doctoral Training Partnership’ which is offering up to 18 studentships for entry in September 2020.
  Determination of Listeria monocytogenes virulence in an invertebrate model Project ID SAS0045
  Dr N Wheelhouse, Prof I Singleton
Application Deadline: 30 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

PROJECT DESCRIPTION. Listeria monocytogenes (L. monocytogenes) is a bacterium which is ubiquitous in the environment and the causative agent of listeriosis, a major food-borne disease affecting humans and livestock.
  Regulation of virulence and biofilm formation by quorum sensing and the "stress alarmone" ppGpp in gram-negative pathogenic bacteria.
  Dr M Welch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are investigating the complex interplay between cell-cell signalling (quorum sensing), microbial lifestyle (i.e., free-living planktonic cultures vs sessile biofilm communities), growth phase and virulence in gram-negative bacteria.
  Does plant pathogen adaptation in environmental reservoirs and secondary host affect its virulence and risk for transmission?
  Dr V Friman, Prof M Brockhurst, Dr D Jeffares, Mr J Elphinstone
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Even though opportunistic plant pathogens must survive in various natural. environments during transmission between hosts, this crucial part of their life-.
  Spore surface attributes as virulence determinants in mucormycosis
  Dr K. Voigt
Application Deadline: 11 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fungi of the order Mucorales are emerging pathogens and cause life-threatening infections in both animals and humans. Our working group studies the basic principles of virulence in the human pathogenic zygomycete (Mucorales) Lichtheimia corymbifera.
  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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  The maintenance of virulence and antimicrobial resistance in Shigella
  Prof C Tang
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Shigella spp are the main cause for dysentery worldwide, and emerged from commensal Escherichia coli following acquisition of a 210 kb virulence plasmid.
  (MRC DTP) Design and synthesis of new antivirulence drugs for treatment of tuberculosis
  Dr L Tabernero, Dr S Butterworth, Prof D Procter
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tuberculosis (TB) remains a major health problem that affects billions of people worldwide and the emergence of severe anti microbial resistance (AMR) to current antibiotics is now the main challenge to eradicate the disease.
  TurboID-charging discovery of plant pathogen virulence and host defense mechanisms (JONESS20DTP)
  Prof J Jones
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant pathogens cause disease and reduce crop yields, secreting "effector" proteins that target host. proteins and suppress immunity.
