  Targeting pathogen subversion of cellular ageing to combat antimicrobial-resistant typhoid fever
  Dr D Humphreys, Dr T Darton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial-resistant typhoid fever is fuelled by chronic Salmonella carriage. The world faces epidemics of untreatable typhoid fever caused by antimicrobial-resistant strains of Salmonella Typhi (~27 million cases/year).
  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.
  Snake venomics and the quest for universally efficacious antivenoms (Ref: SF20/APP/MOSCHOS5)
  Dr S Moschos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Snakebite and envenomation is a WHO-declared neglected tropical disease plagues 5.5 million victims globally per year, causing nearly 150,000 deaths and 400,000 permanent disabilities.
  Defining strategies to promote immunity to multi-drug resistant Staphylococcus aureus.
  Dr L Prince
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Staphylococcus aureus is a highly successful pathogen that can circumvent many aspects of immunity. White blood cells, including neutrophils, are a critical defence against infection and yet S.
  The Biological and Pathological Effects of Blinking (Ref: SF20/APP/MCDERMOTT1)
  Prof A McDermott
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Blinking is essential to spread the tear film over the surface of the eye and so keeps the eye moist and lubricated to ensure a smooth surface for refraction of light and provision of essential nutrients and protective antimicrobial molecules.
  A proteomic map of host cell rewiring by pathogens
  Dr B Collins, Prof J Bengoechea, Dr G Schroeder
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We aim to develop advanced methods in mass spectrometry-based proteomics and apply them to the question of how host cellular defences are manipulated by bacterial pathogens.
  Exploring the Application of REIMS to Bovine Health Monitoring and Milk Quality Analysis
  Dr S Cameron, Prof S Huws
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Rapid evaporative ionisation mass spectrometry (REIMS) is an ambient ionisation technique that allows for the analysis of a sample in.
  Development of a three dimensional in vitro model of the human cornea to dissect the inflammatory events associated with sight-threatening ocular pathogens
  Dr C Dobson, Dr C Maldonado-Codina, Prof P Morgan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The presence of microbes at the corneal surface may trigger low grade discomfort through to acute eye infection and permanent loss of vision.
  Metals and host-pathogen interactions: the role of metal handling systems in the human gastrointestinal pathogen Campylobacter jejuni
  Dr J Cavet, Dr D Linton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Campylobacter jejuni is a globally important food-borne pathogen causing an estimated 400-500 million cases of acute human gastroenteritis each year.
  MSc Project: Chronic lung infection – Investigation of the mechanisms of adaptation during chronic colonisation.
  Dr S McClean
Application Deadline: 3 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chronic lung infections are associated with poor quality of life and mortality for people with underlying respiratory conditions such as cystic fibrosis (CF) and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
  Chronic Wounds and Infection - impact on diabetic patients
  Research Group: Centre for Skin Sciences
  Dr M J Thornton, Dr J N Fletcher
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Non-healing chronic wounds present a significant clinical challenge. In Europe, the cost of wound management accounts for 2%–4% of the health care budget and the complications associated with impaired wound healing can have a significant, long-term effect on the morbidity, mortality, and quality of life for patients.
  Ph.D. Fellowship in Intestinal Innate Immunity and Host Defense Peptides
  Dr E Cobo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

RESEARCH. One Ph.D. position is available immediately at the University of Calgary, Canada to study gut innate immunity contributed by host defense peptides and immunoregulation in the epithelial and leukocyte cross-talking in response to microbial pathogens.
  Determining the role of adherent-invasive E. coli in Crohn’s disease – cause or consequence? (SCHULLERMEDOCT2020)
  Dr S Schüller, Prof T Wileman
Application Deadline: 17 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Crohn’s disease is a type of inflammatory bowel disease which affects at least 120,000 people in the UK. It is a lifelong condition often diagnosed in young adulthood.
  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.
