  Evaluation of natural plant based botanicals as alternative to therapeutic antibiotics
  Dr C Situ
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

It has become widely recognised that antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the biggest health threats that mankind faces, encompassing huge health and economic burdens on governments and societies in every region of the globe.
  Novel drug delivery systems for Schizophrenia treatment
  Dr E Larraneta
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project aims to develop, characterise and test a new type of implantable device to provide sustained antipsychotic drug delivery for schizophrenia treatment.
  Uncovering the Hidden Human Milk Microbiome
  Dr S Cameron, Prof S Huws, Dr J Megaw
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Until recently, human milk (HM) was considered to be sterile and free of microorganisms in healthy mothers. We are now beginning to understand the importance of the microbiome of HM and its role in developing the naïve immune system of new-born babies.
  Innovative Diagnostics for Helminth Parasite Infections
  Dr P McVeigh, Dr N Marks
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Helminth (worm) parasites cause ill health and poor productivity in farm animals worldwide. Control relies largely on anthelmintic drugs, either applied en masse to entire herds based on perceived infection risk, or guided by treatment decisions made using sub-optimal diagnostic tests.
  Emerging Infectious Diseases – Surveillance and Biosecurity
  Dr N Marks, Dr P McVeigh
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. A continued increase in both the geographical range of existing pathogens and the transmission of novel pathogens into the human population poses a challenge for the effective control of emerging infectious diseases (EIDs) and biosecurity.
  The role of epigenetic mechanisms in the control of post-stress recovery of cancer cells
  Dr K Panov, Dr S McDade, Dr B Graham
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. In recent years, it has become apparent that epigenetic mechanisms play an important role in the cellular response to stress; however, exact mechanisms involved are still poorly understood despite continued efforts.
  Understanding Biofilm Formation in the Domain Archaea
  Dr J Megaw, Prof B Gilmore
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Biofilms - structured and organised microbial communities - represent one of the most successful forms of life.
  Temperature regulation of non-coding RNA and crop - rhizosphere interactions
  Dr J Dalzell, Dr FL Liu
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Crop plants manipulate rhizosphere interactions through the release of root exudates. Whilst root exudates can attract beneficial microbes, they are also exploited by pathogens and plant parasitic nematodes (PPNs).
  The marine phosphorus cycle and the methane paradox
  Prof J Mcgrath, Dr J Chin
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Marine microorganisms play major roles in regulating climate and driving global biogeochemical cycling. It has long been recognised that phosphorus (P) availability plays a major role in these processes by controlling marine primary productivity.
  Archaeal polyphosphate cycling: novel enzymes to drive new technologies
  Dr J Chin, Prof J Mcgrath
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Phosphorus is a globally important resource used particularly by the agricultural industry in fertiliser, enabling the growth of enough crops to feed the world’s increasing population.
  Influence of farm hygiene standards and management practices on Johne’s disease progression in selected NI dairy herds
  Prof I Grant, Prof N O'Connell
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Johne’s disease is present in dairy herds in Northern Ireland. However, the true herd prevalence is uncertain, and probably underestimated, because currently used diagnostic tests lack sensitivity.
  How does Clostridium difficile control the gut microbiome? Molecular dissection of nutrient control strategies
  Prof G McMullan, Dr B Graham, Prof J Mcgrath
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Clostridium difficile is a Gram positive, spore forming, anaerobic bacterium that is the main cause of hospital-acquired and antibiotic-associated diarrhoea.
  Schistosome blood flukes and bacteria: How pathogens interact with other pathogens, and the host
  Dr G Gobert, Dr J Megaw
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Parasitic schistosome flukes reside in the blood stream of the host, causing significant chronic disease in hundreds of millions of people in tropical and sub-tropical countries.
  Adaptive management of stochastic parasite challenge in animals under climate change
  Prof E Morgan, Dr M Robinson
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Climate change is causing greater variation in conditions for parasite transmission, and increased unpredictability in disease outbreaks in farmed and other animals.
  Targeting yeast epigenetics to combat anti-fungal resistance
  Dr E Hyland, Dr C Law
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. One consequence of climate change is the increased incidence of fungal disease, as global temperatures become more aligned with optimal fungal growth conditions.
