  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.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Targeting pathogen subversion of cellular ageing to combat antimicrobial-resistant typhoid fever
  Dr D Humphreys, Prof S Baker, Dr T Darton
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

- Antimicrobial-resistant typhoid fever is fuelled by chronic Salmonella carriage. The world faces epidemics of untreatable typhoid fever caused by antimicrobial-resistant strains of Salmonella Typhi (~27 million cases/year).
  Genome mining of novel antimicrobial natural products from new bacterial strains
  Dr H Deng, Prof M Jaspars
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is rising to dangerously high levels in all parts of the world. In Europe alone, drug-resistant bacteria are estimated to cause 25,000 deaths annually and cost more than US$1.5 billion every year in healthcare expenses and productivity losses.
  Mechanism of Bacterial Resistance to Antimicrobial Peptides
  Prof Mibel Aguilar
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antibiotic resistance continues to emerge and intensify.
  (BBSRC DTP) Novel antimicrobial discovery using high-throughput pathway assembly and robotics
  Prof E Takano, Prof A Munro, Prof R Breitling
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent advances in molecular biology, in particular our improved ability to read and (most importantly) write genomic sequences, have led to renewed excitement in the area of genetic engineering, i.e.
  GW4 BioMed MRC DTP PhD studentship: Defining the role of efflux in bacterial biofilm formation and antimicrobial resistance to develop new treatments for infection
  Dr B V Jones
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the ‘GW4 BioMed MRC Doctoral Training Partnership’ which is offering up to 18 studentships for entry in September 2020.
  EASTBIO Antimicrobial peptide signalling to CD8+ T cells
  Dr E Gwyer Findlay, Dr M Swamy
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

CD8+ T cells are essential for robust immune responses to pathogens, particularly in the intestine. We are interested in how antimicrobial peptides – released from neutrophils and mucosal epithelial cells – affect the differentiation of, and cytokine production by, CD8+ T cells.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Killing the unkillable. Developing bacterial capture compounds to identify new targets against antimicrobial resistant Staphylococcus aureus
  Dr R Corrigan, Dr D Williams
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The “superbug”, Methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a major threat to global health. Once inside a host, bacteria, like S.

  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Sharpening the blunted neutrophil response to antimicrobial resistant fungal infection
  Dr P Elks, Prof A Condliffe, Dr V See, Dr S Johnston
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Life-threatening invasive fungal infection is a major health problem in the immunocompromised, and emerging drug resistance is a major threat to global health.
  Countering antimicrobial resistance: investigating β-lactamase inhibitors using atomistic simulation and experiment
  Dr M van der Kamp, Dr J Spencer, Prof A J Mulholland, Prof T Walsh
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the ‘GW4 BioMed MRC Doctoral Training Partnership’ for entry in September/October 2020.
  The bacterial protein translocation machinery: a target for new strategies against antimicrobial resistance
  Prof I Collinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacterial resistance to antibiotics is a major problem affecting millions of people across the world. This severely affects treatment of bacterial infections as strains are emerging that are totally resistant to all clinically used antibiotics.
  The maintenance of virulence and antimicrobial resistance in Shigella
  Prof C Tang
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Shigella spp are the main cause for dysentery worldwide, and emerged from commensal Escherichia coli following acquisition of a 210 kb virulence plasmid.
  (BBSRC DTP) Metals and bacterial virulence: overcoming metal intoxication during infection
  Dr J Cavet, Dr D Linton, Prof J Lloyd
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Campylobacter jejuni is a globally important food-borne pathogen, being the leading bacterial cause of human acute gastroenteritis and responsible for an estimated 0.5 billion cases each year.
  Novel synthetic approaches to antimicrobial natural products and investigations of their bioactivity
  Prof A Malkov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of the project is to develop new highly effective anti-tubercular agents. Previously, it has been established that terpenes isolated from marine organisms possess a number of important antibacterial properties.
