  Campylobacter genomics: host specific phenotypes and antibiotic resistance in the farmyard
  Dr S MacIntyre
Applications accepted all year round
Campylobacteriosis is the primary cause of bacterial induced gastroenteritis in the UK. Contaminated retail poultry and meat is recognised as a primary source of infection.
  Multi-organ signalling and diseases. How maintaining skeletal muscle mass impacts the development of liver diseases
  Prof K Patel
Applications accepted all year round
Skeletal muscle has a number of roles in the human body beyond locomotion. It is has a vital role in controlling the metabolic activity the organism.
  Next generation wearable healthcare sensors
  Prof S Sherratt, Prof W Harwin, Dr S Hadjiloucas, Dr F Hwang
Applications accepted all year round
The aim of this project is to research and develop the next generation of Internet of Things (IoT) connected wearable sensor technologies for applications in healthcare and physiotherapy.
  Protein engineering enzymes for Industry.
  Prof K A Watson
Applications accepted all year round
We are interested in key features of protein sequence - structure - function relationship, and how this information can be translated to health.
  SCENARIO: Climate and Speciation in the Mediterranean biome
  Dr A Culham, Dr J David, Dr JS Singarayer, Dr C Yesson
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
The Mediterranean basin is one of the world’s biodiversity hotspots yet patterns of distribution and diversification of species that are key to maintaining this biodiversity are still poorly understood.
  SCENARIO: Hominin dispersal, climate and encephalization
  Dr C Venditti, Dr JS Singarayer, Prof M Pagel, Prof S Harrison
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Modern humans arose in Africa around 200,000 years ago and subsequently migrated out of Africa eventually to occupy the entire world – the only Hominin species in an evolutionary lineage that is ~7 million years old to have done so.
  SCENARIO: Roles of woodland birds in the transmission of emerging tree diseases
  Dr G Barrett, Dr R Broughton, Dr K Schönrogge, Prof R W Jackson
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Ecologically important tree species in the UK are facing increased threats from invasive pests and pathogens, spurred on by climate change and globalization.
  SCENARIO: Understanding microbial community dynamics and resilience in communal sink drains
  Dr S Gweon, Dr G Barrett, Dr S MacIntyre, Dr A Meade
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Sink drains. What’s lurking in these drains? Why and how do they persist? How resilient are they? What would be the impact of depositing pathogens or antibiotic resistance genes into the drain, and how long will they persist?.
  Size matters! - Bacterial genome size and its implications in ecological traits and niche distribution.
  Dr S Gweon
Application Deadline: 16 January 2019
"""What if all animals can be divided into just two groups - the large and the small? This certainly is not true with animals, but when it comes to bacteria we are less certain."".
  Systems level analysis of platelet signalling
  Dr M J Fry, Prof J M Gibbins
Applications accepted all year round
We are interested in how intracellular signal transduction networks bring about complex biological behaviours in cells. We do this by combining computational biology with wet laboratory experimentation.
