  Identifying fundamental principles behind the preservation of free energy in bacteria
  Research Group: Institute of Cell Biology
  Dr Teuta Pilizota
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacteria, like all other cells, stay alive by maintaining adequate supplies of free energy. Under various external stresses, bacteria attempt to stay viable by distributing the available energy to processes essential for coping with the challenge, while simultaneously maintaining core cellular functions.
  New ways of terminating transcription in bacterial pathogens
  Dr C Brown
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

An excellent PhD candidate (’A’ grades) interested in researching the fundamental process of gene expression in bacteria is being recruited to join a multidisciplinary team led at University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand.
  GW4 BioMed MRC DTP PhD studentship: Making Broken Bones Antimicrobial - Preventing Osteomyelitis Using a Targeted and Mineralising Liposomal Delivery System
  Dr WN Nishio Ayre, Prof J Birchall
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/October 2019.
  How does the microbiome affect behaviour? Discovering neuroactive compounds made by bacteria
  Research Group: Behavioural Genomics
  Dr A Brown
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The risk of psychiatric diseases and neurodegeneration is influenced by genetics and external environment. Increasingly, it is also thought to be influenced by the internal environment through gut microbes.
  Computational methods to explore the relationship between gut microbes, metabolites and human health
  Research Group: Twin Research & Genetic Epidemiology
  Dr C Menni, Assoc Prof A Valdes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Start date. 1st January 2020. Metabolomics and the gut microbiome are intricately involved in susceptibility and potentially monitoring of metabolic diseases.
  Our Mission: to Educate, Nurture and Discover for the benefit of Human Health

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our ultimate purpose is to work in service of patients. RCSI was founded by Royal Charter on 11th February 1784, to set and support professional standards for surgical training and practice in Ireland.
  Analysis and Treatment of Orthopaedic Pin Site Infections
  Dr J McEvoy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pin site infections are a major complication of external fixation of fractures, and bacterial biofilms are known to form on the pin surface.1 This project, in collaboration with Dr Shobana Dissanayeke (RHUL) and St Peter’s Hospital, Chertsey, will investigate bacterial biofilms that have been obtained from percutaneous pins used in orthopaedic fixation frames.
  A novel pulmonary fluid dynamics tool for early diagnosis of tuberculosis
  Dr K Vogiatzaki, Dr S Waddell, Prof M Cercignani
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tuberculosis (TB) is the leading infectious cause of death worldwide, killing 1.6 million people in 2017 (WHO TB Report, 2018). Drug resistance is hampering efforts to eliminate TB in many parts of the world.
  Cell polarity regulation in a model eukaryote
  Research Group: Institute of Cell Biology
  Prof K E Sawin
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Normal cell architecture and organisation depends on internal and external cues and landmarks. Upon stress, cell organisation can also change in a coordinated way, either to generate changes in shape or to achieve homeostasis at the level of the entire cell.
  How do climate-driven shifts in phytoplankton communities influence carbon and nitrogen uptake and recycling along the west Antarctic Peninsula?
  Dr S Henley, Dr A Poulton, Prof K Davidson, Prof M Meredith
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project summary. Biological carbon and nutrient uptake and recycling will be examined at the west Antarctic Peninsula in relation to climate-driven changes in phytoplankton biomass and species composition.
