  Probing the organization and function of bacterial toxin-antitoxin complexes
  Dr F Hayes, Prof J P Derrick
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacterial toxin-antitoxin (TA) modules typically consist of a pair of genes that encode for a stable toxin protein and an unstable cognate antitoxin molecule.
  Development of an in vitro model to dissect the mechanism of fungal persistence in the cystic fibrosis lung
  Prof P Bowyer, Dr M Bromley, Dr S Gago
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is the most common fatal genetically inherited disease in Caucasian populations. This disease is caused by mutations in the cystic fibrosis transmembrane regulator gene (CFTR) which produces defective ion fluxes and calcium homeostasis in the epithelia.
  Nanoparticle conjugates for agricultural disease detection and diagnosis
  Dr L Wong, Prof J Micklefield
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Infectious diseases in plant crops present a significant socioeconomic burden globally, as they compromise the safety and reliability of food supply, as well as other agricultural products.
  The chemical glycobiology of carbohydrate metabolism
  Prof R Field, Prof S Flitsch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Carbohydrates are widespread in nature and fulfil many important biological functions. However, the biology of carbohydrates is much less well explored than that of nucleic acids and proteins.
  Chemical and enzymatic tools for pathogen glycobiology
  Prof R Field, Prof S Flitsch
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Dual-award between The University of Manchester and The University of Melbourne. This dual-award programme offers candidates the opportunity to apply for a project with a strong supervisory team both in Manchester and in Melbourne.
  Expanding the Genetic Code of a Synthetic Yeast
  Prof P Cai, Dr A Green
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The proposed project aims to develop an efficient yeast-based protein expression platform with an expanded genetic code. The standard genetic code of natural organisms comprises 20 canonical amino acids.
  Investigating virus-host interactions in the killer yeast system (Manchester-Melbourne Dual Award)
  Dr J-M Schwartz
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fungi, like all living organisms, may be infected by viruses, obligate intracellular parasites that hijack the host cell machinery in order to replicate.
  Human body temperature as a driver of fungal pathogenicity in the lung (Manchester-Melbourne Dual Award)
  Prof E Bignell, Dr M Bromley
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fungal lung diseases are an often fatal consequence of spore inhalation which occur with high prevalence across the globe in settings of immune dysfunction and genetic risk.
  (A*STAR) Engineering pathways to next generation antibiotics
  Prof J Micklefield, Dr A Green
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The provision of new antibiotics to combat antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and to treat neglected tropical diseases (NTD), which are problematic in the developing world, is a major global challenge.
  (A*STAR) RNA-based sensors of host-imposed stress in the major fungal pathogen of human lungs: Potential as drug targets
  Prof E Bignell, Prof J Micklefield
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The often-fatal fungal lung disease invasive aspergillosis (IA) has claimed more than 8 million human lives since its. emergence ~ 40 years ago.
