  (A*STAR) Unravelling the metabolic basis of Aspergillus fumigatus adaptation to combinatorial stress conditions
  Dr J Amich, Prof E Bignell
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Aspergillus fumigatus is an environmental saprophytic fungus that lives ubiquitously in the soil. This fungus can also infect the lungs of individuals with any kind of immune imbalance, causing a broad range of diseases collectively termed aspergillosis.
  Tackling antibiotic resistance: developing a vaccine against gonorrhoea
  Prof J P Derrick, Dr F Hayes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gonorrhoea is caused by the Gram-negative bacterium Neisseria gonorrhoeae and is a serious public health problem in developing and developed countries.
  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.
  Investigating the Causal Biological Effects on Microbial Induced Corrosion (MIC) Occurring Within Components of Advanced Maritime Systems
  Dr B Connolly
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a full time PhD studentship in the Department of Materials at the University of Manchester. The project is supported by BAE Systems, who will provide both industrial supervision, access to research facilities and secondments during the studentship.
  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.
  Do Altered host-microbial interactions promote oral inflammation during ageing?
  Dr J Konkel, Prof A McBain
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

As we age, the systems of our bodies become less able to function; rendering people increasingly infirm. Ageing affects our immune system, impeding our ability to both fight infection and maintain tolerance.
  Engineering synthetic ribosomal RNAs (rRNAs) in yeast
  Prof P Cai, Prof D Delneri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Advances in DNA synthesis technology have led to rapid growth in the field of synthetic biology, heralding a nascent era of synthetic genomics.
  (BBSRC DTP) How ecological interactions shape mutation rates to antimicrobial resistance
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Dr C Knight, Prof A McBain, Dr P Paszek, Dr R Krašovec
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The chance that an organism mutates, for instance that a microbe mutates to resist an antibiotic, can depend on that organism’s environment.
  (BBSRC DTP) Quantifying greenhouse gas emissions in agri-ecosystems across multiple scales
  Prof D Johnson, Prof R Bardgett
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This exciting project will provide training for careers in sustainable agriculture. The project will develop new understanding of how grazed grassland management practices influence and mitigate greenhouse gas emissions.
  (BBSRC DTP) Using mathematical models to understand the role of the respiratory microbiome in asthma
  Research Group: Molecular Environmental Sciences
  Dr T Gilman, Dr M Muldoon, Prof N Papadopoulos, Prof D Robertson
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most of the cells in the human body are not human. There are rich microbial communities (i.e., microbiota) in our digestive tracts, our respiratory tracts, and on our skin.
