  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Intelligent Engineering of Bacterial Genomes
  Prof R Breitling, Prof E Takano
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The goal of this project is to establish methodology for the intelligent engineering of biological hosts for the production of high-value drugs and chemicals.
  (MRC DTP) Development of antifungal agents that target essential protein kinases in A. fumigatus
  Dr M Bromley, Dr L Tabernero
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

A. fumigatus is the primary etiological agent of invasive aspergillosis, a disease that primarily affects individuals who are immunocompromised, and causes 200k life threatening infections annually.
  Cloning and expression of topoisomerase genes from Trypanosoma brucei (SteverdingD-2U19SF)
  Dr D Steverding
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Topoisomerases (TOPs) are essential enzymes that catalysis topological changes in DNA. TOPs are pivotal to cell survival and therefore inhibitors have been developed to target these enzymes both for antimicrobial and anti-cancer chemotherapy.
  EASTBIO A synthetic biology approach to design ‘intelligent’ organoids for the study of host-microbe interactions
  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
  Dr E Cachat, Dr L Boulter
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Organoids are self-organised, 3D structures generated in vitro from adult or pluripotent stem cells, that exhibit similar functionality as their tissue of origin.
  High-throughput discovery of novel antibiotics using synthetic microbiology
  Dr R Draheim
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a frequent problem in the treatment of disease caused by several clinical bacterial pathogens. In the European Union, antibiotic-resistant infections kill nearly 25,000 patients and represent a total expenditure of £1.5 billion per year.
  SWBio DTP PhD project: Amyloid Transcription Block Survival - Deriving Functionally Active Peptide Inhibitors of Amyloidosis and Toxicity
  Prof J Mason
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the South West Biosciences Doctoral Training Partnership (SWBio DTP).
  Chemo-enzymatic Synthesis and Potential Applications of Novel Heterocyclic Alkaloids
  Dr H Deng, Dr L Trembleau
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is rising to dangerously high levels in all parts of the world. In Europe alone, drug-resistant bacteria are estimated to cause 25,000 deaths annually and cost more than US$1.5 billion every year in healthcare expenses and productivity losses.
  Disrupting the regulatory mechanisms that allow hospital acquired infections to resist antibiotic therapy.
  Dr R McCarthy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The discovery of penicillin over 90 years ago and its subsequent uptake by healthcare systems around the world revolutionised global health and wellbeing.
  Investigating the role of gut microbes in regulating hallmarks of Ageing
  Research Group: Host-Microbe Co-Metabolism
  Dr F Cabreiro
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD Studentship is available at the MRC London Institute of Medical Sciences, under the supervision of Dr Filipe Cabreiro (Host-Microbe Co-Metabolism Group).
  Discovery of Antibiotics from Cyanobacteria (TRUMANJ20DTP)
  Dr A Truman
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacteria have the capacity to produce natural products with exquisite bioactivities, which makes these compounds excellent candidates as medicines and agrochemicals.
