  Genome mining of novel antimicrobial natural products from new bacterial strains
  Dr H Deng, Prof M Jaspars
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.
  Neural circuits synchronisation and regulation of innate behaviors
  Prof A Ponomarenko
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neuronal computations supporting innate behaviors (such as food seeking and intake, social interaction and regulation of vigilance states) remain largely unknown.
  Characterising temperate bacteriophages in complex microbial communities and their role in antimicrobial resistance (Ref:SF18/APP/Smith)
  Dr D Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Temperate bacteriophages have the ability to integrate into the chromosome of their target bacterium that leads to a change in the physiology of their bacterial host.
  PhD Scholarship in molecular biology of plant stress adaptation: The role of the membrane-associated NAC transcription factors
  Prof IA Dickie
Application Deadline: 21 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

We seek a PhD candidate to join a 3-year research program based at the University of Canterbury (UC) to investigate the role of membrane associated NAC transcription factors in plant stress adaptation.
  Using synthetic biology to develop natural sunscreen compounds from algae
  Prof M X Caddick
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will employ synthetic biology to investigate, manipulate and optimise production of Mycosporine-like Amino Acids (MAAs).
  Do Altered host-microbial interactions promote oral inflammation during ageing?
  Dr J Konkel, Prof A McBain
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

As we age, the systems of our bodies become less able to function; rendering people increasingly infirm. Ageing affects our immune system, impeding our ability to both fight infection and maintain tolerance.
  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.
  The Gut Microbiota and Colorectal Surgery
  Dr M Lewis, Prof S C Andrews
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Background. Antibiotic use prior to and following colorectal surgery is conventional practice, and is aimed at reducing the incidence of postoperative infection which is a major risk of such surgery.
  Investigating the molecular basis of bacterial pathogenicity of invertebrates
  Prof R W Jackson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pseudomonas syringae bacteria are common within the environment and can infect a wide range of plant species. These bacteria employ a diverse arsenal of virulence factors to attack plants.
  Understanding Xylella fastidiosa, a globally challenging plant pathogen - studies in pathogenicity and population genomics
  Prof R W Jackson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is an exciting PhD opportunity working with the University of Reading. It will focus on applying advanced sequencing technologies and population genomics to understand a globally challenging plant pathogen that currently threatens worldwide horticulture.
