Armillaria species, are devastating fungal root-rot pathogens that affect over 500 woody plant species globally.
  Discovery of novel pharmaceuticals from marine and desert microorganisms
  Prof M Jaspars, Dr R Ebel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  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.
  Single-Cell Gene Expression Dynamics
  Dr M Hansen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for. As a PhD candidate, your aim is to identify core post-transcriptional programmes that impact on gene expression variability and ultimately cellular function.
  [EPSRC - iCASE] Microbe – radionuclide interactions in legacy nuclear waste systems
  Prof J Lloyd, Prof K Morris, Prof S Shaw, Dr L Natrajan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent work in the Geomicrobiology Group at the University of Manchester has shown that microorganisms can have a controlling impact on the speciation (and hence mobility) of key radionuclides in a broad range of natural and engineered systems.
  (MRC DTP) Can we use techniques such as machine learning to improve the risk prediction of infection-related complications in order to optimise antibiotic prescribing?
  Prof T Van Staa, Dr V Palin, Dr D Wong
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance is a major public health concern and overuse of antibiotics is a major factor in its development. One strategic aim of the Government’s approach to minimise this is to conserve and steward the effectiveness of existing treatments by optimising antibiotic prescribing practices.
  Integrated mathematical modelling and experimental research into interactions between microorganisms
  Dr J U Kreft
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our group aims to combine theoretical & experimental approaches to understand major problems in the ecology and evolution of microbes.
