  Understanding and combatting antimicrobial resistance plasmids
  Dr M Buckner, Dr J Blair
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a major crisis for human medicine. Globally, untreatable bacterial infections are rapidly increasing, leaving us with limited treatment options.
  The role of Efflux in Antibiotic Resistance of Clinically Relevant Pathogens
  Dr J Blair
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antibiotics underpin all of modern medicine; they are used to treat bacterial infections, and to prevent infections after surgery and in patients with a suppressed immune system such as those undergoing cancer chemotherapy or organ transplantation.
  Evolution of multi-drug resistant gram negative clones
  Dr A McNally, Prof W Van Schaik
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Increasing antibiotic resistance in bacterial infections is a serious threat to modern medicine, so understanding why some bacteria become resistant to multiple antibiotics whereas others do not is an important challenge for microbiologists, doctors and vets.
  Elucidating the emergence of multi-drug resistant Enterococcus faecium
  Prof W Van Schaik, Dr A McNally
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Gram-positive bacterium Enterococcus faecium is a commensal of the intestinal tract of humans and animals. However, over the last two decades a clone of E.
  The role of pore-forming bacterial proteins in pneumonia and meningitis
  Prof T J Mitchell, Dr M Tomlinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The bacterium Streptococcus pneumoniae (the pneumococcus) is carried in the nasopharynx of most children and some adults without causing disease.
  Investigating the influence of polyploidy on the evolution of a major human fungal pathogen
  Dr E Ballou
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human fungal pathogen Cryptococcus neoformans undergoes an unusual morphological transition from haploid yeast to highly polyploid Titan cells during infection of the human host.
  Developing novel bioactive restorative materials
  Dr J Camilleri, Dr M Milward, Prof PR Cooper
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This work will focus on gingival recession and the use of smart dental material in order to mitigate it. Gingival recession is prevalent in the adult population with studies suggesting that approximately 50% of the population has one or more recession defects this increases to 88% in over 65 year olds.
  Statistical and Molecular Genetics of Complex Traits
  Prof Z Luo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most characters of any living organism are polygenically controlled and environmentally modified, including those threatening human health and those important in breeding for high yield, better quality and improved adaption of animals, plants and microbes.
  Structure and Function Studies on Proteins from Predatory Bacteria
  Dr A Lovering
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bdellovibrio bacteriovorus is a small predatory bacterium able to invade and kill many different Gram-negative bacterial prey (including human, animal and crop pathogens; e.g.
  Eukaryotic gene expression: understanding the role of UPF1 in global mRNA processing and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
  Dr S Brogna
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project’s specific objective is to study the molecular role(s) that the RNA helicase UPF1 plays in RNA processing. UPF1 is a key player in nonsense-mediated mRNA decay (NMD), it is universally conserved in eukaryotes and is essential to the development of many organisms [1].
