  Structural and functional studies of outer membrane assembly in Gram-negative bacteria and mitochondria - DongMED_Oct2020
  Prof C Dong, Dr P Crichton
Application Deadline: 17 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The outer membrane plays essential roles in Gram-negative bacteria and mitochondria. Dysfunction of outer membrane proteins occur in several human diseases, such as diabetes, Parkinson and other neurodegenerative disease.
  Defining a novel assembly pathway in ssRNA viruses using X-ray footprinting.
  Prof P G Stockley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project co-supervised by Prof. Peter Stockley at Leeds and Prof. Reidun Twarock at University of York, as part of the White Rose network "Structural and Mechanistic Biology at the RNA/Ligand Interface".
  Investigation of a probiotic strain of Lactobacillus plantarum 2025 and the development of novel antibacterials
  Prof A Karlyshev
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The rise of multidrug resistant forms of microbial pathogens imposes a serious problem to public health worldwide. The rapid spread of antimicrobial resistance is associated with misuse of conventional antibiotics.
  Characterisation of in vitro models of human salivary glands and their use in functional studies
  Dr L Bingle, Prof C Bingle
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Saliva is produced by three pairs of major salivary glands and multiple minor glands in the lips, associated with the tongue and also with the palate.
  Simultaneous gene transcription and translation in bacteria
  Dr Gabriel Demo
Application Deadline: 19 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

OBJECTIVES. The research aims to unravel the fundamental mechanism of the transcription-translation coupling in bacteria.
  Exploring relationships between Wild house mouse ecology and immunology
  Prof J Bradley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding the causes of variability in the immune systems response underpins our knowledge of disease susceptibility, control of infectious diseases and ultimately, healthy aging.
  A role for the microbiome in the response of skin to ultraviolet radiation
  Prof C A O'Neill, Prof A McBain
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

During the last decade, it has become clear that physiological health depends to a large extent, on the body’s relationship with its microbiome (reviewed in 1).
  Interplay between the translation of upstream open reading frames and ribosome nascent chain-associated factors to control gene expression in eukaryotic cells
  Dr M Pool, Prof G D Pavitt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Eukaryotic mRNAs typically contain one open reading frame that is translated into protein. However many mRNAs contain additional upstream ORFs (uORFs) that regulate protein expression by controlling the flow of ribosomes to the main ORF, often by regulated reinitiation.
  Antibiotics Unearthed 2: The identification, purification and structural determination of novel antibiotics. (Cooper U20MEDSF)
  Prof C Cooper, Dr L Bowater
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) represents one of the biggest threats to the treatment of an increasing number of human and animal infections.
  Targeting intrinsic mechanisms of antibiotic resistance in bacterial pathogens
  Prof P Roach
Application Deadline: 15 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Prof. Peter Roach. Project description. Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) is one of the most serious health threats globally and it is predicted that AMR bacteria will kill >10 million people by 2050.
  PhD at the University of Hong Kong in protein and stem cell engineering
  Dr R Jauch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

My laboratory studies how transcription factors read the genomic code to toggle the switches that turn genes on and off to give cells their identity.
  Microbial bioprocessing and functional magnetic nanomaterials
  Dr AFC Fernandez-Castane
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a three-year Postgraduate studentship, supported by the School of Engineering and Applied Science, to be undertaken within the Aston Institute of Materials Research (AIMR) and the Energy and Bioproducts Research Institute (EBRI) groups.
  Discovering new DNA repair enzymes using archaea as a model for mammals
  Dr E Bolt, Dr T Allers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD research project will combine protein biochemistry and molecular biology methods, and will provide detailed training into how to analyse gene and protein function.
  Regulation of clostridial solvent production by quorum sensing
  Dr K Winzer, Dr Y Zhang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The genus Clostridium comprises a large group of strictly anaerobic and metabolically diverse spore-forming bacteria.
  Tackling the fungal threat to global food security
  Prof S Avery, Dr M Brock
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fungi cause diseases of crops and spoilage of foods that cause losses of up to a third of food yield. This is a major global challenge given the world’s growing population and need for more food, while climate change is predicted to limit food supply in the future.
