  The physiological roles of the Rasd1 interactome in the central control of hydromineral homeostasis
  Prof D Murphy, Dr M Greenwood
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The brain mechanisms responsible for osmotic stability are located in the hypothalamo-neurohypophyseal system (HNS), which consists of magnocellular neurons located in the supraoptic nucleus (SON) and paraventicular nucleus (PVN), the axons of which terminate in the posterior pituitary gland.
  Social networking: Understanding promiscuity in the transfer of bacterial virulence genes
  Research Group: Institute of Infection, Immunity & Inflammation
  Prof JR Penades
Application Deadline: 1 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The development of novel multiresistant hypervirulent strains from formerly avirulent or only weakly virulent strains is dramatically fuelled by the acquisition of mobile genetic elements carrying virulence factors.
  Functional analysis of novel genes important in the physiology and pathogenesis of the human pathogen Campylobacter jejuni
  Prof D J Kelly
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Campylobacter jejuni and E. coli are the commonest cause of human bacterial gastroenteritis worldwide. Although pathogenic in humans, C.
  Characterising temperate bacteriophages in complex microbial communities and their role in antimicrobial resistance (Ref:SF18/APP/Smith)
  Dr D Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Temperate bacteriophages have the ability to integrate into the chromosome of their target bacterium that leads to a change in the physiology of their bacterial host.
  Host factors determining latency and reactivation of MDV-1 virus
  Dr Y Yao, Dr F Grey
Application Deadline: 17 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Herpesviruses are large dsDNA viruses that cause widespread, lifelong latent infections in different hosts, through multiple virus-host interactions to create a delicate balance between the virus and the host.
  Using synthetic biology to develop natural sunscreen compounds from algae
  Prof M X Caddick
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will employ synthetic biology to investigate, manipulate and optimise production of Mycosporine-like Amino Acids (MAAs).
  Genome mining of novel antimicrobial natural products from new bacterial strains
  Dr H Deng, Prof M Jaspars
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Whole genome sequencing to investigate the mechanisms of fluoroquinolone-resistance in field isolates of Salmonella spp.: a nationwide study of recreational areas
  Research Group: Biomedical Research Group
  Dr C Walker, Dr C O'Kane, Dr H McRobie, Dr J Sullivan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

  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.
  The role of endogenous retroviruses in human health and disease
  Dr G Magiorkinis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

More than 10 years have passed since the first high quality (nearly) complete version of the human genome and we are still exploring its functionality.
