  Development of a three dimensional in vitro model of the human cornea to dissect the inflammatory events associated with sight-threatening ocular pathogens
  Dr C Dobson, Dr C Maldonado-Codina, Prof P Morgan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The presence of microbes at the corneal surface may trigger low grade discomfort through to acute eye infection and permanent loss of vision.
  Metals and host-pathogen interactions: the role of metal handling systems in the human gastrointestinal pathogen Campylobacter jejuni
  Dr J Cavet, Dr D Linton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Campylobacter jejuni is a globally important food-borne pathogen causing an estimated 400-500 million cases of acute human gastroenteritis each year.
  Using synthetic biology to understand the evolution of antibiotic resistance
  Dr M Lagator, Dr C Knight
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Imagine an architect, tasked with converting an old stadium into a building with a different function, without demolishing it.
  Evolution Education Trust PhD project: Evolution of biocide tolerance in Klebsiella pneumoniae and its impact on antibiotic resistance and virulence
  Dr B V Jones
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.
  Integrated mathematical modelling and experimental research into interactions between microorganisms
  Dr J U Kreft
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our group aims to combine theoretical & experimental approaches to understand major problems in the ecology and evolution of microbes.
  Chronic Wounds and Infection - impact on diabetic patients
  Research Group: Centre for Skin Sciences
  Dr M J Thornton, Dr J N Fletcher
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Non-healing chronic wounds present a significant clinical challenge. In Europe, the cost of wound management accounts for 2%–4% of the health care budget and the complications associated with impaired wound healing can have a significant, long-term effect on the morbidity, mortality, and quality of life for patients.
  Polymers for treating amoebic infections in India
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Prof S Rimmer, Dr W Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Amoebic parasitic infections are widespread in the tropics. Amoebic dysentery can be fatal if the parasite progresses to the brain.
  MSc by Research Programme: Identifying key regulators of growth-arrested states in Pseudomonas aeruginosa
  Dr M Bergkessel
Application Deadline: 16 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This course allows you to work alongside our world renowned experts from the School of Life Sciences and gain a ’real research’ experience.
  Cloning and expression of topoisomerase genes from Trypanosoma brucei (SteverdingD-2U19SF)
  Dr D Steverding
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Topoisomerases (TOPs) are essential enzymes that catalysis topological changes in DNA. TOPs are pivotal to cell survival and therefore inhibitors have been developed to target these enzymes both for antimicrobial and anti-cancer chemotherapy.
  Link between antibiotic production and bacterial development (KELEMENGU20SCIO)
  Dr G Kelemen, Prof A Ganesan
Application Deadline: 30 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The widespread emergence of antibiotic resistant pathogens has led to an urgent need for a better understanding of antibiotic production in these organisms to underpin the discovery and development of new antimicrobial agents.
