  ONE Planet DTP - Biofouling invertebrates and their larvae as vectors of antimicrobial resistance and marine pathogens. (OP20232)
  Dr N Aldred
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Of the many human impacts on the global ecosystem, the increasing antimicrobial resistance (AMR) of bacterial pathogens is a significant challenge.
  Genomic diversity and molecular basis of pathogenicity of novel oomycete pathogens
  Dr M Barkoulas, Prof M Fisher
Application Deadline: 12 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The oomycetes represent a diverse group of eukaryotic organisms that cause destructive disease in animals and plants. Plant infections are more widely known because they are associated with historical famines caused by shortage in the production of key food crops.
  QUADRAT DTP: Environmental change and the epidemiology of a multi-host pathogen: Leptospira in Africa
  Dr M Moseley, Prof E Morgan
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Multi-host pathogens include some the most important pathogens of livestock and humans. These pathogens are maintained in complex ecological reservoirs that are comprised of epidemiologically connected animal host populations and environments (Viana et al., 2014).
  ONE Planet DTP - Predicting the effects of increasing soil temperatures on beneficial plant symbionts and plant pathogens through Synthetic Biology. (Ref: OP20300)
  Dr C Kelly
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The rapid increase in global temperature is already affecting the productivity and composition of natural and agricultural ecosystems.
  Analysis of pathogen determinants recognized by the hypervariable immune receptor Dscam
  Dr M Soller
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. To mount an immune response, host organisms must first recognize the pathogen with which they are infected. The first line of defense against pathogen infection in animals is provided through the innate immune response.
  SCENARIO - Understanding risks and optimising anaerobic digestion to minimise pathogen and antimicrobial resistance genes entering the environment.
  Dr D Saroj
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Anaerobic digestion (AD) utilises organic materials to produce energy via biogas while also producing nutrient-rich digestate ideal for application to land as a fertiliser.
  The role of Efflux in Antibiotic Resistance of Clinically Relevant Pathogens
  Dr J Blair
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antibiotics underpin all of modern medicine; they are used to treat bacterial infections, and to prevent infections after surgery and in patients with a suppressed immune system such as those undergoing cancer chemotherapy or organ transplantation.
  Identification of filamentous pathogens in leaves using Raman spectroscopy
  Dr P Goldberg Oppenheimer, Dr E Luna-Diez
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will tackle the complex issue of filamentous pathogens in leaves, with a specific target to identify key chemical indicators of Ash Dieback (AD) and Oak Powdery Mildew (OPM).
  PhD in Plants and Microbes: crop production and protection, the interaction between plants and other plants, pests and pathogens, and soils, and the interactions of ecosystems with global change
  Dr C Voigt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants underpin life on Earth. In Sheffield, world leading plant research is undertaken across all scales from the molecular level through to the leaf and root, whole plant and ecosystem.
  How does a pathogen unlock the plasmodesmatal gates between neighbouring cells?
  Dr C Faulkner
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cell-to-cell communication is fundamental to multicellular organisms. The exchange of information and resources between cells and tissues enables co-ordination of responses to environmental and developmental signals.

  Protease-resistant antimicrobial peptides to target bacterial and fungal pathogens
  Dr J Bella, Dr L Tabernero
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance is quickly becoming a serious global health problem. The emergence of multidrug-resistant microbial strains combined with the drying up of the antibiotic pipeline in the pharmaceutical industry has significantly worsened the situation in recent years.
  Evolution Education Trust PhD project: Strain wars and the evolution of opportunistic pathogens
  Prof S Sheppard
Application Deadline: 5 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Bath is inviting applications for this PhD opportunity based at the Milner Centre for Evolution, a unique, cross-faculty research centre bridging biology, health and education.
  Evolution and conservation of membrane-associated effector proteins in plant pathogens
  Dr CN Meisrimler
Application Deadline: 25 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We seek a PhD candidate to join a 3-year research program based at the University of Canterbury (UC) to investigate the 3D structure of effector proteins targeting the membrane associated NAC transcription factors.
  The molecular basis of the success of bacterial pathogens.
  Dr M van der Woude, Prof G H Thomas
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The success of a bacterial species depends on its ability to grow and survive in a changing and potentially hostile environment. This requires adaptation at both the single cell and population level.
