  MRC DTP 4 Year PhD Programme: Cell biology of a bacterial nano-weapon
  Dr S Coulthurst, Dr C Rickman
Application Deadline: 11 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is offered as part of the University of Dundee 4-year MRC DTP Programme “Quantitative and Interdisciplinary approaches to biomedical science”.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Bacteriolysis: how cell envelope-targeting antibiotics trick bacteria to self-digest
  Dr H Strahl von Schulten, Dr A Fenton
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The bacterial cell envelope is the target for some of our most successful antibiotics including penicillins and cephalosporins, and also for last-resort antibiotics such as vancomycin and daptomycin used to treat life-threatening multidrug-resistant bacterial infections.
  Targeting an Achilles heel in bacterial outer membrane biogenesis: Strategies to combat bacterial infection by targeting the periplasmic chaperone SurA
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr A Zhuravleva, Prof S E Radford
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In February 2017 the World Health Organisation published a list of antibiotic-resistant "priority pathogens" – a catalogue of 12 families of bacteria that pose the greatest threat to human health.
  Modelling the deformation of cells
  Dr F Perez-Reche
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cells are the elementary building blocks of living organisms. The correct functioning of living organisms is therefore conditioned to the ability of living cells to withstand forces and deformations and to promptly adapt to their mechanical environment.
  (BBSRC DTP) Discovery and Editing Pathways to New Antibiotics
  Prof J Micklefield, Prof D Leys, Dr A Green
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is an urgent need for new antibiotics. The majority of antibiotics that are used to treat infectious diseases today are small molecules produced by microorganisms, called natural products, or derivatives thereof.
  Modelling lung deposition of inhaled particles in cystic fibrosis
  Prof O Jensen, Dr A Horsley, Dr C Whitfield
Application Deadline: 9 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disorder that affects the production and clearance of mucus from various organs in the body. In the lungs this causes blockage and thickening of airways, leading to lung damage and early death from respiratory failure.
  Clean Drinking Water with Femtosecond Holographic Coherent Spectroscopy
  Prof C Simpson, Prof N Broderick
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 3-year PhD project is part of a grant funded by the New Zealand MBIE to develop a nonlinear spectroscopy and imaging system to sense water-borne contaminants (e.g.
  PhD studentship available within the C3Bio Doctoral Training Initiative. Development of a low-cost microfluidic transducer for electric noise diagnostics of bacterial infections in low resource settings
  Dr P Rocha
Application Deadline: 9 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project team. Dr Paulo Rocha, Dr Nuno Reis & Dr Brian Jones. Project enquiries. Dr Paulo Rocha ([email protected]). PROJECT. Bacterial infections with ‘super-bugs’ such as Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) or Septicaemia affect millions of people worldwide.
  MRC DTP 4 Year PhD Programme: Bacterial stress sensing and antibiotic action
  Dr U Zachariae, Dr M Bergkessel
Application Deadline: 11 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is offered as part of the University of Dundee 4-year MRC DTP Programme “Quantitative and Interdisciplinary approaches to biomedical science”.
  MSc by Research Programme: Development of tools suited for the in vivo identification and study of protein Complexes in Phytophthora capsici, required for infection.
  Dr E Huitema
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.
  EASTBIO Multiscale modelling and analysis of stochastic gene expression in mammalian cells
  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
  Dr R Grima, Dr D Oyarzun
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for a motivated doctoral student to join us on an exciting project at the interface of stochastic modelling and systems and synthetic biology.
  Bioinspired glycan-nanoparticles as multifunctional mechanistic probes for virus-dendritic cell interactions
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Prof D Zhou, Prof W B Turnbull, Dr Y Guo
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pathogens such as HIV, mycobacteria can bind specifically to host cell surface lectins via their surface specific glycan patterns to initiate infection.
  Insights into the assembly of viral factories from structural mass spectrometry
  Dr A Calabrese, Prof F. Sobott
Application Deadline: 26 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Viral replication factories in cells (sites of viral replication/assembly) are formed by viral non-structural proteins (NSPs) in a number of important human and animal pathogens, including Reoviruses and Rotaviruses (the major cause of >200,000 child deaths per annum).
  Mathematical Virology: A New Mathematical Approach to Viral Evolution Grounded in Experiment
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Prof P G Stockley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mathematical modelling of natural phenomena has the potential to be predictive but requires direct verification by experiment. Such models can then be very powerful indicators of our understanding and they permit in silico simulations of situations that are difficult to test experimentally.
  Molecular mechanisms of influenza virus replication
  Prof E Fodor
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Influenza viruses are important human and animal pathogens; they cause widespread clinical and veterinary disease and have a considerable economic impact.
