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.
  Towards new antibacterial drugs to treat infections caused by multidrug-resistant bacteria: identification and characterization of novel natural product antibiotics
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr A O'Neill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared antimicrobial drug resistance one of the greatest problems currently facing human health, and the situation is especially grave in the case of infections caused by bacterial pathogens.
  (A*STAR) Engineering pathways to next generation antibiotics
  Prof J Micklefield, Dr A Green
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The provision of new antibiotics to combat antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and to treat neglected tropical diseases (NTD), which are problematic in the developing world, is a major global challenge.
  (BBSRC DTP) Discovery and Editing Pathways to New Antibiotics
  Prof J Micklefield, Prof D Leys, Dr A Green
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is an urgent need for new antibiotics. The majority of antibiotics that are used to treat infectious diseases today are small molecules produced by microorganisms, called natural products, or derivatives thereof.
