  Investigating the molecular basis of bacterial pathogenicity of invertebrates
  Prof R W Jackson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pseudomonas syringae bacteria are common within the environment and can infect a wide range of plant species. These bacteria employ a diverse arsenal of virulence factors to attack plants.
  Understanding Xylella fastidiosa, a globally challenging plant pathogen - studies in pathogenicity and population genomics
  Prof R W Jackson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is an exciting PhD opportunity working with the University of Reading. It will focus on applying advanced sequencing technologies and population genomics to understand a globally challenging plant pathogen that currently threatens worldwide horticulture.
  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.
  Social networking: Understanding promiscuity in the transfer of bacterial virulence genes
  Research Group: Institute of Infection, Immunity & Inflammation
  Prof JR Penades
Application Deadline: 1 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The development of novel multiresistant hypervirulent strains from formerly avirulent or only weakly virulent strains is dramatically fuelled by the acquisition of mobile genetic elements carrying virulence factors.
  Adaptation to oxidative stress in hepatitis C virus persistence: the role of IRES-dependent translation.
  Dr S-W Chan, Prof R Ford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) causes a clinically important disease affecting 3% of the world population (Chan 2014). About 75% of the infection will develop into chronic hepatitis, which can then progress into fibrosis, cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma.
  Deciphering Aspergillus fumigatus - Pseudomonas aeruginosa synergistic interactions in coinfection
  Dr J Amich, Prof E Bignell, Dr S Fowler
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pathogen-pathogen interactions in polymicrobial infections are known to directly impact, often to worsen, disease outcomes. Aspergillus fumigatus is the most common fungal pathogen and Pseudomonas aeruginosa one of the most prevalent bacterial pathogens of the human lung.
