The common theme of our work is the biochemistry and evolution of photosynthesis.
  Adjuvant therapies for mupirocin-resistant bacteria
  Dr B Bonev, Dr A Cockayne
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Multi-drug resistant Staphylococcus aureus has been able to adapt constantly to therapeutic use of antibiotics and remains an important source of clinical complications, morbidity and mortality.
  Biology and genetics of reproduction in filamentous fungi
  Prof P S Dyer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Filamentous fungi are of importance in the food, industrial and medical sectors and have important roles in the ecology of natural ecosystems.
  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.
  DNA replication, recombination and repair in Archaea
  Dr T Allers, Dr E Bolt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Additional Supervisor. Anita Marchfelder (University of Ulm, Germany). Archaea are the third domain of life, alongside eukaryotes and bacteria.
  Functional characterization of Neisserial toxin-antitoxin systems
  Dr N Oldfield, Dr D Turner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Toxin-antitoxin (TA) systems are commonly found in both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria and comprise a stable toxin able to stall bacterial replication and an antitoxin that neutralises the activity of the toxin.
  Genome Editing: Engineering CRISPR-Cas Enzymes to Improve Genetic Replacement in Human and Bacterial Cells
  Dr E Bolt, Prof R Chalmers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD research project is aimed at individuals who are keen to learn about the biology and biotechnology of CRISPR systems, and who are interested to investigate protein engineering of Cas1, Cas3 and Cas9 enzymes.
  Pyocins as alternatives to antibiotics against Pseudomonas aeruginosa infections
  Dr C Penfold
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pyocins are bacteriocins produced by Pseudomonas aeruginosa to kill closely related strains of the same species during times of environmental stress.
  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.
