  Investigating host-microbial crosstalk, immunity and tissue repair at the intestinal barrier
  Research Group: Inflammation & Obesity
  Dr C Schiering
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fully funded 3.5 year PhD programme available in the lab of Dr. Chris Schiering at the London Institute of Medical Sciences.
  Regulation of intestinal immune responses to commensal bacteria by innate lymphoid cells
  Dr M Hepworth, Prof K Else
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Commensal bacteria present in the gastrointestinal tract provide beneficial roles for the host, such as supporting nutrient metabolism.
  The contribution of human mast cells to innate functional memory in anti-bacterial responses
  Prof S Bulfone-Paus, Dr J Cavet
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the recent years, it has become evident that after infection or vaccination innate immune cells have the capacity to adapt and modify the nature of their activities following a single immunostimulatory challenge and display a long-term functional memory.
  Characterising protective local and systemic immune responses to Group A streptococcal throat infection in children
  Prof A Finn, Dr L B Nicholson
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project. Group A streptococcus (GAS) causes infective, invasive and post-infective immune-mediated diseases including serious heart and kidney conditions resulting in significant illness and 0.5-1.5 million deaths/year globally.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Design and Optimisation of Red/NIR Fluorescent Dyes for the Assessment of Antimicrobial Susceptibility
  Prof D Kell, Dr G Nixon
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The current anti-microbial resistance (AMR) crisis is well documented and the need for a very rapid antibiotic susceptibility test is key to preventing mis-diagnosis and subsequent mis-prescribing.
  The mysterious microbial ecosystem beneath our feet: Unravelling the groundwater microbiology archive
  Mr J Sorensen
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This FRESH CDT project aims to provide the first overview of the UK’s groundwater microbial ecosystem. Groundwater constitutes 99% of all accessible freshwater on the planet and is a vital resource for public water supply in the UK.
  Understanding the ecological role of organic matter (OM) in urban freshwaters
  Dr D Read, Prof RP Evershed, Prof P Johnes, Mr J Bryden
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Organic matter (OM) is an essential component of freshwater ecosystems, fuelling the microbial food-web and primary production, influencing rates of greenhouse gas exchange with the atmosphere and changing water quality and ecosystem health through light attenuation.
  Transcription control and immune evasion in African trypanosomes
  Research Group: Division of Cell & Molecular Biology
  Prof G Rudenko
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Trypanosomes are unicellular eukaryotes which cause African Sleeping Sickness, which is endemic to subSaharan Africa. Trypanosomes can be easily grown as suspension cell lines in the laboratory, where they are straightforward to manipulate and genetically modify.
  Antibiotics; good gone bad? Impact on liver immunity and susceptibility to injury (BERAZAQ20DTP2)
  Dr N Beraza
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The use of antibiotics has saved millions of lives. Worryingly, antibiotics modify dramatically the composition of our intestinal microbiome and can lead to the permanent loss of certain species.
  (BBSRC DTP) From mucin biochemistry to pulmonary immunity: How do mucins promote antimicrobial lung defences?
  Prof E Bignell, Prof D Thornton, Dr A Horsley
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Respiratory mucus plays multiple essential roles in mammalian lung function, from hydrating the epithelium and supporting gaseous exchange, to expelling inhaled particles and microbes and providing a conduit for innate and adaptive immune signaling.
