  Discovery of novel pharmaceuticals from marine and desert microorganisms
  Prof M Jaspars, Dr R Ebel
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.
  Novel, essential genes in lineages of pest insect species
  Dr K Panfilio, Dr D Hebenstreit
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Invasive insect pest species are a growing problem that severely impacts agriculture and crop plants. The UK Plant Health Risk Register currently recognizes over 1000 specific pests, with beetles (Coleoptera) and bugs (Hemiptera) among those recognized as high profile pests and those with rapidly changing statuses.
  The role of polyploidy across the lifespan of epithelial tissues
  Dr K Panfilio, Dr A Pires da Silva
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Epithelial tissues are essential structures in animals, creating compartments and barriers such as the skin and lining of the gut.
  Nano-Engineered Functional Biomaterials for the Built Environment (Ref: ET20/HLS/APP/JIANG)
  Dr Y Jiang
Application Deadline: 1 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Developing environmentally friendly and sustainable biomaterials for the built environment is necessary to address climate change and reduce carbon dioxide emission.
  The role of the diet in affecting neurocognition and mood through effects on the production of neuromodulators by the intestinal microbiome (Ref: SF20/APP/FORD)
  Prof D Ford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacteria can produce metabolites that have a neuromodulatory function or direct neuroactive properties. The best-studied examples include free fatty acids, which activate microglial cells, and the neurotransmitter GABA.
  Development of gene therapies for muscular dystrophies
  Dr L Popplewell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The activities in the Popplewell lab focus on the development of pre-clinical gene therapies for neuromuscular diseases, in particular muscular dystrophies based on gene replacement, endonuclease-mediated gene editing, antisense oligonucleotide (AO)-induced exon skipping and gene sliencing.
  Establishing a Scientific-Evidence Base for a Paradigm Shift for Regenerative Clinical Dentistry
  Dr J Camilleri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Management of diseases to the dental pulp is undertaken clinically using protocols that are historical and have no scientific background.
  Surgical incisions without surgical site infections? Innovative antimicrobial materials to prevent infection after surgical procedures
  Dr M E Barbour, Dr D Hill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applicants. Applications are invited a new self-funded PhD studentship to explore and develop novel materials to facilitate closure of surgical wounds and prevent surgical site infection.
  Genome association studies to detect genetic determinants of virulence traits of invasive meningococcal disease isolates with age stratification
  Dr C D Bayliss
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neisseria meningitidis is the major cause of bacterial meningitis but is also widespread as an asymptomatic coloniser of human oropharyngeal tissues.
  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.
  Tailored synthesis and functionalisation of nano-and microscopic colloidal particles
  Dr M.A Malvindi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are happy to announce the availability of one Early-Stage Researcher (ESR) PhD position at HiQ-Nano (spin off IIT) in the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network, Industrial Doctorate program.
  A multidisciplinary approach to elucidate how TB obtains and uses essential energy sources
  Dr E Fullam, Dr A Cameron, Prof I Gibson
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tuberculosis (TB) is a major global health challenge. TB is now the leading cause of death from a single infectious agent worldwide killing more people than HIV and malaria combined.
  Bacterial ABC transporters involved in antibiotic resistance and sensing
  Dr A Crow, Prof D Roper, Dr S Gebhard
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Type VII ABC transporters are a superfamily of ATP-powered membrane proteins that function in bacterial antibiotic resistance, toxin secretion, cell division and membrane biogenesis [1,2,3].
  Developing novel drugs targeting gut microbiota-accelerated heart diseases
  Dr Y Chen, Prof T Bugg, Dr A Cameron
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is increasing evident that human is a “super-organism”. We co-exist with trillions of microorganisms in our body (collectively named as microbiota), and our health can largely depend on the interrelationship between ourselves and associated microbiome.
  New biological diagnostics for environmental contaminants
  Prof J Moir, Dr S D Johnson
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are interested in recruiting a student interested in using biological methods to detect biological and chemical contamination in environmental samples.
