  Development of a novel 3D gut-microbiota model for the assessment of absorption and metabolism of health supplements and therapeutic drugs
  Dr P Ragazzon
Application Deadline: 10 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The gut epithelium is a complex setting of intestinal cells and epithelial cells filled with transporters, enzymes and channels; these cells are then populated by bacteria (microbiota) that help with the metabolism of nutrients and transport into the blood stream.
  Monitoring bacterial metabolism using advanced metabolomics methods
  Dr D H Kim, Prof D A Barrett
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Nottingham seeks an enthusiastic PhD candidate to work on an exciting multi-disciplinary project that brings together the techniques of synthetic biology, analytical science and systems biology.
  Iron and Immunity: studying how iron and anaemia influence immunity and infectious diseases
  Prof A Drakesmith, Dr S Draper
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

We study how iron and anaemia influence immunity and infectious diseases. Our research inspires therapies that control iron physiology to improve immunity, combat infections and treat disorders of iron metabolism.
  Hijacking of host cellular functions and metabolism in MRSA pathogenesis
  Dr M Letek, Dr V Behrends, Dr Y Calle
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited from potential PhD candidates to work at the Department of Life Sciences, University of Roehampton, supervised by Dr Michal Letek, Dr Volker Behrends, and Dr Yolanda Calle-Patino.
  The Gut Microbiota and Colorectal Surgery
  Dr M Lewis, Prof S C Andrews
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Background. Antibiotic use prior to and following colorectal surgery is conventional practice, and is aimed at reducing the incidence of postoperative infection which is a major risk of such surgery.
  Defining metabolic pathways controlling the response to infection.
  Prof S Spano, Dr M Baldassarre, Dr J Rochford
Application Deadline: 28 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

In order to fight off infection, the body must activate a highly orchestrated response to the infectious agent. The ability to respond to infections critically depends on our general health status and the strength of our immune system.
  Novel tools for bioengineering gut anaerobes
  Dr K Scott, Dr S Shaw
Application Deadline: 28 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bioengineering is widely used to incorporate new activities into specific bacteria, for example the industrial production of 1,3-propanediol from glycerol by Clostridium butyricum (1).
  EMBL Australia Partnership PhD Program

Funding Type

PhD Type

Undertake interdisciplinary, postgraduate research for a PhD degree at Australia's top life science laboratories. Successful students will receive generous scholarships and travel grants while undertaking their PhD at an EMBL Australia laboratory in Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra or Adelaide.
  Evaluation of the impact of prebiotic supplementation on the gastrointestinal microbiome and metabolome of Thorougbred yearlings during nutritional stress
  Dr LE Peachey
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The MSc by Research project. Effective dietary management is a key contributing factor to successful Thoroughbred (TB) rearing; a period when foals and yearlings are subject to a number of abrupt dietary changes.
  Bioengineering of bacterial CO2-concentrating system for improved photosynthesis
  Prof LN Liu, Dr D Canniffe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The single-cell photosynthetic bacteria, cyanobacteria, account for over 25% of global carbon fixation, thanks for their powerful CO2-concentrating machinery.
