  A needle in a stack of needles: using machine learning approaches to find RNA viruses in the gut microbiome (ADRIAENSSENSQ20DTP2)
  Dr E Adriaenssens
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microbiome science has entered the realm of big data, where information is coming faster and at larger volumes, making data processing and analysis a true bottleneck.
  The gut microbiome and inflammaging (CARDINGQ20CASE)
  Prof S Carding
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The number of people living beyond 75 will almost double in the next twenty years. This presents. significant societal challenges particularly for public finances and the NHS as life expectancy increases at a faster rate than healthy and disability-free life expectancy.
  Defining the microbiome environment in patients with biliary tract cancer and its implications for therapy
  Prof J W Valle, Dr M McNamara
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biliary tract cancers (BTCs) encompass cancers of the extrahepatic/intrahepatic bile ducts, gallbladder and ampullary carcinoma. The only potentially curative option is surgical resection; median overall survival (OS) in the advanced setting.
  Developing phage therapy to control plant pathogenic bacteria in the rhizosphere microbiome
  Dr V Friman
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant pathogenic bacteria cause considerable economic losses to food production systems. The main reason for this is that hardly any effective control methods exist to mitigate this damage.
  Longitudinal study on the relationship of the gut microbiome to disease progression in the UK MND population
  Prof C McDermott, Dr S Boddy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Motor neurone disease (MND) is a devastating neurodegenerative condition characterised by progressive deterioration of motor functions until death normally results from respiratory failure.
  How does the microbiome affect behaviour? Discovering neuroactive compounds made by bacteria
  Research Group: Behavioural Genomics
  Dr A Brown
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The risk of psychiatric diseases and neurodegeneration is influenced by genetics and external environment. Increasingly, it is also thought to be influenced by the internal environment through gut microbes.
  Bioinformatics based project - Determining the link between gut microbiome and blood pressure
  Dr F Marques
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A fully funded PhD scholarship is available for an Australian or international student through the School of Biological Sciences and Monash University.
  (MRC DTP) Insulin-mediated antimicrobial secretion from pancreatic acinar cells regulates the gut microbiome and barrier function: Link between diabetes and severity of acute pancreatitis
  Dr J Bruce, Prof I Roberts, Dr J Pennock
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Acute pancreatitis is a serious and sometimes fatal inflammatory disease of the pancreas. Severe cases are characterised by infected pancreatic necrosis, sepsis and multiple organ failure, which increases mortality and prolongs critical care occupancy.
  Soil microbiome function controlling radionuclide bioavailability and soil-to-plant transfer
  Dr J Pittman, Dr C Robinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding the behaviour and environmental impacts of radionuclides such as radium (Ra) and uranium (U) is of critical importance for the management and risk modelling of sites with elevated concentrations of these radionuclides.
  The oral microbiome, ROS and the development of oral cancer: a role in Fanconi anemia?
  Prof K Hunter, Dr S Collis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many patients with Fanconi Anemia (FA) develop cancers of the mouth, esophagus or anogential region. A number of reasons have been suggested, but the millions of bacteria that are naturally resident in these body sites might be a significant contributory factor.
  Reversing antibiotic resistance and sepsis due to E. coli in the UK via bacteriophage engineering of the human microbiome.
  Dr M Toleman, Prof T Walsh
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ‘GW4 BioMed MRC DTP’ is awarding up to 18 studentships with an October 2020 start date, aligned with the themes of Infection, Immunity and Repair; Neuroscience and Mental Health; and Population Health.
  (MRC DTP) The oral microbiome, microbial metabolites and their impact upon local and systemic immunity
  Dr A McBain, Dr J Konkel
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Commensal microbes and the host immune system have formed an evolutionary partnership that is vital for the development, metabolism and defensive immunity of the host.
  Tracking carbon and nitrogen fixing organisms in the oceanic microbiome
  Dr T Bibby, Dr P Lam, Prof W Huang
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Complex marine microbial communities catalyze global cycling of carbon and nitrogen that regulate the Earth’s climate.

  Dr J Ferrari, Dr AC Darby
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

All organisms face a multitude of environmental threats and have to. adapt to overcome these challenges. Many insects get help from an.

  Dr N Beraza
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The use of antibiotics has saved millions of lives. Worryingly, antibiotics modify dramatically the composition of our intestinal microbiome and can lead to the permanent loss of certain species.
