  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Killing the unkillable. Developing bacterial capture compounds to identify new targets against antimicrobial resistant Staphylococcus aureus
  Dr R Corrigan, Dr D Williams
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The “superbug”, Methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a major threat to global health. Once inside a host, bacteria, like S.

  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Are microbes the hidden influencers? Unravelling the genomic network of host-microbe interactions
  Dr D Rico, Prof S Hambleton, Dr C Lamb, Prof R Hirt
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background and hypotheses. Each of us has a genome. The genome is the same in every cell of our organism but its three-dimensional (3D) structure is different in every cell type.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Combining cutting edge molecular microbiology and super-resolution microscopy to reveal how bacteria divide, and how to stop them
  Dr S Holden, Prof S J Foster
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking to recruit an outstanding student to work on uncovering the architecture of the Bacillus subtilis bacterial cell division septum by super-resolution microscopy.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: How do non-coding enhancer RNAs confer genetic risk in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)?
  Dr Dan Bose, Dr J Cooper-Knock
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project. Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is an aggressive neurodegenerative disease with no effective therapy. The established genetic causes of ALS can only explain a small fraction of the observed disease phenotypes.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Sharpening the blunted neutrophil response to antimicrobial resistant fungal infection
  Dr P Elks, Prof A Condliffe, Dr V See, Dr S Johnston
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Life-threatening invasive fungal infection is a major health problem in the immunocompromised, and emerging drug resistance is a major threat to global health.
  Phytoplankton nutrient sensing mechanisms: key to thriving in coastal ecosystems?
  Dr K Helliwell, Dr J Robidart, Prof C Moore, Dr A Rees
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Marine phytoplankton play vital roles in regulating the global climate, contributing almost half of net primary production.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: A New Front in Microbial Warfare—Delivery of Antifungal Effectors by the Type VI Secretion System
  Prof J Quinn, Dr C Stewart
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The type VI secretion system (T6SS) is widely used by bacteria to fire diverse effector proteins directly into neighbouring target cells.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Bacteriolysis: how cell envelope-targeting antibiotics trick bacteria to self-digest
  Dr H Strahl von Schulten, Dr A Fenton
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The bacterial cell envelope is the target for some of our most successful antibiotics including penicillins and cephalosporins, and also for last-resort antibiotics such as vancomycin and daptomycin used to treat life-threatening multidrug-resistant bacterial infections.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Drug discovery to control C. difficile infections by targeting sporulation
  Dr P Salgado, Dr J Hubbard
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Interested in a PhD studying antibiotic resistant bacteria and explore new ways to treat drug-resistant infections? In this PhD, you will use a range of biochemistry, biophysical and structural techniques, together with molecular biology, genetics, and microbiology approached to develop new therapeutics targeting C.
