  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.
  Subversion of small GTPases for host exploitation by intracellular bacterial pathogens
  Research Group: Centre for Experimental Medicine
  Dr G Schroeder, Prof M Valvano, Dr B Collins
Application Deadline: 20 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The rise of antibiotic resistance as well as growing populations with compromised health and immunity, make bacterial pathogens one of the most important threats to human health and global development.
  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.
  Dissecting how the human pathogen Klebsiella pneumoniae rewires macrophages to promote infection
  Research Group: Centre for Experimental Medicine
  Prof J Bengoechea, Prof P Moynagh
Application Deadline: 20 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Macrophages represent play a critical role in host defence against pathogens. Therefore, pathogens should overcome macrophages’ antimicrobial programme to promote infection.
  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
  Prof D Smith
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.
  Disrupting the regulatory mechanisms that allow hospital acquired infections to resist antibiotic therapy.
  Dr R McCarthy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The discovery of penicillin over 90 years ago and its subsequent uptake by healthcare systems around the world revolutionised global health and wellbeing.
  Understanding the impact of co-infection on lung immune responses and allergy
  Prof R May, Dr C Pashley, Dr D Cunningham
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Alveolar macrophages are white blood cells that provide an essential first line of defence in the lung. They hunt, engulf and destroy invading pathogens.
  Using live-cell imaging of the immune response to investigate host-pathogen interactions during infection.
  Prof R May
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

My group is interested in the molecular and cellular mechanisms that occur during host-pathogen interactions.
  The MRC-University of Glasgow Centre for Virus Research (CVR) PhD Funded Programme

Funding Type

PhD Type

Viral diseases kill many millions of people each year and are a significant global challenge to human health and prosperity. We have created a specialised MRC programme to train the next generation of scientists and leaders in virology research.
  Towards new antibacterial drugs to treat infections caused by multidrug-resistant bacteria: identification and characterization of novel natural product antibiotics
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr A O'Neill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared antimicrobial drug resistance one of the greatest problems currently facing human health, and the situation is especially grave in the case of infections caused by bacterial pathogens.
  Iron Biology
  Prof H Drakesmith, Dr O Bannard
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We study how iron and anaemia influence immunity and infectious diseases. Our research inspires therapies that control iron physiology to improve immunity, combat infections and treat disorders of iron metabolism.
