The evolution of antimicrobial resistance presents a major, and growing, threat to our ability to effectively and economically treat bacterial infections.
  Molecular and cellular mechanisms of regeneration in the invertebrate chordate amphioxus
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr I Somorjai
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cephalochordates ("amphioxus" or "lancelet") are an ideal model for studying developmental and regenerative processes (Bertrand and Escriva 2011; Somorjai 2017).
  Radiation induced oxidative DNA damage and cancer immunology in NSCLC
  Dr C Hiley, Dr S Boulton
Application Deadline: 29 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Forty percent of all patients cured of cancer have radiotherapy as part of their treatment. Lung cancer is the most common cause of cancer death in the UK and in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) radiotherapy is the standard of care for patients with stage III disease.
  (BBSRC DTP) Exploring the developing microbiome in new-born babies
  Dr S Cruickshank, Prof A McBain, Dr C Knight
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The gut microbiome contains a large diverse community of microorganisms with our bacteria being best understood. These bacteria play crucial roles for our health such as aiding in the digestion of food, production of key vitamins and metabolites and programming out immune system.
  Using live-cell imaging of the immune response to investigate host-pathogen interactions during infection.
  Prof R May
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

My group is interested in the molecular and cellular mechanisms that occur during host-pathogen interactions.
  NERC E4 Evolution to the rescue: the role of ecology in antibiotic resistance evolution

  Forensic acarology: the importance of mites in forensic investigations
  Dr M A Perotti
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Forensic acarology. the utility/contribution of mites in criminal investigations, in illegal trade, in cases of human and animal neglect, etc.
  Multilevel selection on transposition rates in cancer
  Dr L J Johnson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer is an evolutionary process. Cells in a tumour vary due to mutation, and so over many generations they adapt in response to both intrinsic selective pressures (such as anoxia) and extrinsic selective pressures (such as chemotherapy).
