  A genetic investigation of human and non-human remains from Hadrian’s Wall and the northern frontier of the Roman empire (ref: SF18/APP/GRAHAM)
  Dr E Graham
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over the past decade, advances in genetic technologies have made it possible to determine much more information from a sample of DNA.
  Characterising temperate bacteriophages in complex microbial communities and their role in antimicrobial resistance (Ref:SF18/APP/Smith)
  Dr D Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Temperate bacteriophages have the ability to integrate into the chromosome of their target bacterium that leads to a change in the physiology of their bacterial host.
  Characterising the faecal virome in Crohn’s disease patients with known NOD2 variants compared to matched controls without gastrointestinal disease (ref: SF18/APP/Bridge)
  Dr SH Bridge
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human virome includes viruses that infect host cells and viruses that infect bacteria, and impacts on health and disease independently of classical viral disease.
  Investigation into the biological effects of exercise training on muscle wasting in patients with lung disease (ref: SF18/APP/SIMOES)
  Dr D Simoes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Accentuated skeletal muscle loss in patients with non-communicable diseases such as Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a strong independent predictor of hospitalisation and mortality.
  Microbial community composition and biosynthetic potential of actinomycetes in the soil samples from extreme environments (ref: SF18/APP/SANGAL)
  Dr V Sangal
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A number of bacterial species are able to survive in the extreme environmental conditions, e.g., hyper-arid soil of the Atacama desert (Busarakam et al., 2016; Castro et al., 2018).
  Molecular characterisation of novel pathways for cell envelope protein localisation in mycolic acid-producing actinomycetes (ref: SF18/APP/Sutcliffe)
  Prof I Sutcliffe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mycolic acid-producing actinomycetes are of vital economic and medical importance. They include pathogenic species including Corynebacterium diphtheriae, Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Rhodococcus equi as well as industrially important organisms.
  Molecular mechanisms of neuronal ageing in bladder and bowel neurons (ref: SF18/APP/Ranson)
  Dr R Ranson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ageing results in a progressive loss of physiological function resulting in a reduced quality of life in the elderly. One of the more prevalent conditions associated with ageing is incontinence-both faecal and urinary.
  Multivariate analysis of human craniofacial geometry (ref: SF18/APP/EVISON)
  Prof M Evison
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding of variation in the geometry of the face and skull is valuable in clinical applications, such those involving surgical interventions undertaken in response to trauma or disease.
  New Privilege nutrients of Human Gut Microbiota from Western Diet (ref: SF18/APP/Munoz)
  Dr J Munoz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human large bowel contains ~1013 bacteria, referred to as the human gut microbiota or HGM. There is considerable interest in deploying prebiotic and probiotic strategies to maximise the impact of the HGM on human health.
  Novel drug target validation for treating Diabetes Mellitus (ref: SF18/APP/Soundararajan)
  Dr M Soundararajan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The important cellular entities responsible for fighting against infections in our body are the T cells. T cells are however also shown to play a central role in the development of autoimmune diseases (AIDs) as “T cell activation hijacking” is the major autoimmune reaction causing mechanism observed in several AIDs.
