  Impact of hypermutable sequences on microbial elicitation and evasion of host immune responses
  Dr C D Bayliss
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
Non-typeable Haemophilus influenzae (NTHi) cause multiple human diseases including otitis media, the commonest bacterial infection in children.
  3D quantitative analysis of textures in palaeobiology: environments, taphonomy and exceptional preservation
  Prof M Purnell, Prof S E Gabbott
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The roughness or texture of surfaces is intuitively obvious and, at a course scale, easily discernible through touch and sight. We can see and feel that some bedding surfaces are rougher than others, or that some parts of an exceptionally preserved fossils appear smoother than the matrix, or other parts of the fossil.
  Bacterial sensory perception: investigating the stimuli that bacteria can sense and how this information is used to regulate bacterial behavior
  Dr H O'Hare
Applications accepted all year round
Bacteria sense numerous environmental stimuli and integrate this information to regulate their own cellular processes accordingly.
  How do antibiotic-producing bacteria decide when to synthesise antibiotics, and how much to make?
  Dr H O'Hare, Dr G Mukamolova
Applications accepted all year round
Actinobacteria are well-known as secondary metabolite producers and hence are of high interest commercially for drug discovery and for production of agrochemcials and human and animal therapeutics.
  Understanding environmental determinants of microbial virulence as a route to design anti-infectives
  Dr H Yesilkaya
Applications accepted all year round
Streptococcus pneumoniae can colonise our tissues without any harm, but for incompletely understood reasons it can also cause life-threatening diseases.
  Targeting the gut microbiome to prevent human diseases associated with obesity and poor metabolic health
  Prof K Brown, Dr T Yates, Prof J M Ketley
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
Excess body weight, insulin resistance and inflammation are underlying causes of the metabolic syndrome and greatly increase the risk of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease, which in turn are risk factors for metabolically-driven cancers.
