  Combining Synthetic Biology and Modelling to Understand and Predict Evolution
  Dr M Lagator, Dr J-M Schwartz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mutations, and their effects on organismal fitness, lie at the heart of understanding and predicting evolution. Because of its central role in determining evolutionary outcomes, much experimental and theoretical effort has been put into describing the fitness effects of mutations.
  Using synthetic biology to understand the evolution of antibiotic resistance
  Dr M Lagator, Dr C Knight
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Imagine an architect, tasked with converting an old stadium into a building with a different function, without demolishing it.
  Super-selectors: inter-host variation in antimicrobial resistance evolution
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr L McNally, Dr P Vale
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is currently an intense focus on antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in medical, scientific and political arenas owing to its broad and potentially devastating public health consequences.
  Chromatin evolution – beyond histones
  Research Group: Molecular Systems
  Dr T Warnecke
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Across all domains of life, DNA is intimately associated with proteins that wrap, package, and protect it. Bacteria encode a variety of small basic proteins that are dynamically expressed and fulfil a variety of architectural roles by bridging, wrapping, or bending DNA.
  Silver ion-based antimicrobials: mechanisms of toxicity and resistance
  Dr G Mulley, Prof S C Andrews
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"The emergence and persistence of bacterial strains with resistance to multiple classes of antibiotics has led to renewed interest in the antimicrobial properties of silver ions.
  Understanding the development of fluoroquinolone (FQ) resistance in Campylobacter present in broilers and the risks of FQ resistance persisting through the food-chain to cause disease in people (UDOFRIC)
  Prof N McCarthy, Dr J Rodgers, Dr I Kempf
Application Deadline: 9 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Warwick in partnership with the Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA) and the French Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health & Safety (ANSES) is inviting applications for a fully-funded PhD studentship to commence in March 2020.
