  Bactofilins and the bacterial cytoskeleton
  Dr E Hoiczyk
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Newly developed light and electron microscopy methods are revolutionising our understanding of bacterial cells. Once thought to be simple, bacteria have now been recognised at highly organised cells using many elements previously only known from eukaryotes.
  Biogenesis of the Clostridium difficile cell surface
  Dr R Fagan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in our hospitals. Infection normally follows disruption of the gut normal flora by broad-spectrum antibiotic treatment.
  Biophysics of enzyme-catalyzed phosphoryl transfer
  Prof J P Waltho
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Using a combination of multinuclear NMR spectroscopy, high resolution X-ray crystallography, synthetic chemistry and computational chemistry we have explored the conformational behaviour of enzymes under a very wide range of conditions.
  Development of a novel immunotoxin
  Dr L J Partridge
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Immunotoxins represent a form of immunotherapy whereby antibodies are used to target a toxin, usually to cancer or infected host cells.
  Dissecting the mechanisms of antibiotic resistance in Clostridium difficile
  Dr R Fagan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antibiotic resistance in pathogenic bacteria is one of the greatest health challenges facing humanity today.
  Functional analysis of novel genes important in the physiology and pathogenesis of the human pathogen Campylobacter jejuni
  Prof D J Kelly

Funding Type

PhD Type

Campylobacter jejuni and E. coli are the commonest cause of human bacterial gastroenteritis worldwide. Although pathogenic in humans, C.
  Gliding motility in bacteria
  Dr E Hoiczyk
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Motility is important for bacterial survival and facilitates colonisation and dispersal of bacteria. While swimming and type IV pili-based swarming is relatively well understood, gliding or adventurous motility, a form of surface-associated motility is still enigmatic.
  How do antibiotics kill bacteria?
  Prof S J Foster
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite being a lynchpin of modern healthcare we still do not understand how cell wall active antibiotics such as penicillin and vancomycin kill growing bacteria, although several theories have been proposed.
