  GW4 BioMed MRC DTP PhD studentship: Strain wars and the evolution of opportunistic pathogens
  Prof S Sheppard
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the ‘GW4 BioMed MRC Doctoral Training Partnership’ which is offering up to 18 studentships for entry in September 2020.
  Development of a single NGS pipeline using a novel universal virus enrichment panel for the detection and typing of viral pathogens.
  Prof L Scobie, Dr R Gunson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project reference number. SHLS19001. Current routine virology diagnostics rely upon serological methods and novel molecular methods such as real time PCR.
  Finding Achilles Heel: Investigating how to control major bacterial pathogens (WEBBERQ20DART)
  Dr M Webber, Prof J Wain
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacterial infection remains a major cause of morbidity and mortality with hospital acquired infections still common. The increase in numbers of bacterial which are AMR (antimicrobial resistant) makes prevention of infection more important than ever.
  The role of Efflux in Antibiotic Resistance of Clinically Relevant Pathogens
  Dr J Blair
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antibiotics underpin all of modern medicine; they are used to treat bacterial infections, and to prevent infections after surgery and in patients with a suppressed immune system such as those undergoing cancer chemotherapy or organ transplantation.
  Microbiology PhD project: Elucidating the role of glycan-binding lectins in infections of ESKAPE bacterial pathogens - from molecular microbiology to clinical research
  Dr A Titz, Prof M Bischoff
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We have an opening for 1 PhD student in a joint research project between the Helmholtz Institute for Pharmaceutical Research Saarland (HIPS, Saarbrücken, Germany - a branch of the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research) and Saarland Medical University (UKS, Homburg, Germany).
  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.
  GW4 BioMed MRC DTP PhD studentship: Snapshot into the fungal nucleus – opening novel avenues to tackle fungal disease
  Dr H-W Nützmann
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the ‘GW4 BioMed MRC Doctoral Training Partnership’ which is offering up to 18 studentships for entry in September 2020.
  Regulation of virulence and biofilm formation by quorum sensing and the "stress alarmone" ppGpp in gram-negative pathogenic bacteria.
  Dr M Welch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are investigating the complex interplay between cell-cell signalling (quorum sensing), microbial lifestyle (i.e., free-living planktonic cultures vs sessile biofilm communities), growth phase and virulence in gram-negative bacteria.
  Evolution of Influenza Viruses - prediction of possible future antigenic variants

Application Deadline: 2 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Evolution of Influenza Viruses. Centre for Pathogen Evolution. Department of Zoology. University of Cambridge. Project summary. Our research focus is to design and develop analytical, computational, and mathematical methods to understand the fundamental processes that govern the evolution of influenza viruses.
