  Chemo-enzymatic Synthesis and Potential Applications of Novel Heterocyclic Alkaloids
  Dr H Deng, Dr L Trembleau
Applications accepted all year round
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is rising to dangerously high levels in all parts of the world. In Europe alone, drug-resistant bacteria are estimated to cause 25,000 deaths annually and cost more than US$1.5 billion every year in healthcare expenses and productivity losses.
  Developing a carbazole-base biosensor for the measurement of methacrylate intermediates
  Dr H Deng, Dr L Trembleau
Application Deadline: 29 March 2019
Methacrylate (MA) is an organic compound and is produced industrially on a large scale as a precursor.[1] Over 3 million tons of MA are produced annually.
  Developing an enzymatic toolbox to make complex modified peptides
  Prof M Jaspars, Dr W Houssen, Dr L Trembleau
Applications accepted all year round
The pharmaceutical industry has identified a major gap in its portfolio. On the one hand, they are excellent at discovering small molecules that act via a lock and key type mechanism.
  Discovery of novel pharmaceuticals from marine and desert microorganisms
  Prof M Jaspars, Dr R Ebel
Applications accepted all year round
Microorganisms from extreme environments such as the deep seas, cold seas and hyper arid deserts have been shown to produce a range of complex natural products with high biological activity.
  Genome mining of novel antimicrobial natural products from new bacterial strains
  Dr H Deng, Prof M Jaspars
Applications accepted all year round
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is rising to dangerously high levels in all parts of the world. In Europe alone, drug-resistant bacteria are estimated to cause 25,000 deaths annually and cost more than US$1.5 billion every year in healthcare expenses and productivity losses.
  Quantitative Risk Assessment for Food Safety (allergens, microbial pathogens or chemical contaminants)
  Prof N Strachan, Dr F Perez-Reche
Applications accepted all year round
This project will use computational methods to assess risks. An expectation of the society we live in is that the food that we eat is safe.
  Experimental Evolution of Thaumarchaeota
  Dr C Gubry-Rangin, Prof J Prosser
Application Deadline: 16 April 2019
The fundamental aim of this project is to determine the process of adaptive diversification and associated trade-offs in fitness, by studying microbial evolution experimentally.
  Modelling Candida albicans infection of the human gut using human intestinal organoid cultures
  Dr S Gratz, Prof C Munro, Dr D MacCallum
Application Deadline: 12 April 2019
Fungal infections pose a major public health problem, and understanding how infection starts is crucial for developing effective treatments and prevent further disease.
  Modulation of epigenetic phase variations in periodontal bacteria as a novel strategy for control of periodontal disease
  Dr K Hijazi, Dr G Cherukara
Application Deadline: 29 March 2019
Rationale and overall aim of the project. Periodontal disease (PD) is a major health issue in Scotland and worldwide with ever-increasing prevalence due to the increasing age of the population.
  Novel microbes and their biochemistry in C. elegans
  Prof S Mani
Applications accepted all year round
The Mani Laboratory @The Albert Einstein College of Medicine, INC has an open position for a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to be part of an expanding research program on novel aspects of the microbial biofilms and C.
