  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.
  A chemical biology approach to developing cyclic peptide based PROTACS
  Prof A Tavassoli
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Ali Tavassoli. Project description. We are seeking a talented and motivated scientist to work on a 3.5 year interdisciplinary PhD project in the field of chemical biology.
  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 biofilm formation in nosocomial pathogens
  Dr R McCarthy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A biofilm by definition is a structured community of bacterial cells enclosed in a self-produced polysaccharide matrix and adherent to an inert or living surface.
  Bioprospecting & biotechnology - mining the Polar microbial metagenome (Ref: SF20/APP/PEARCE2)
  Prof D Pearce
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project seeks to exploit new and existing Polar microbial metagenomic libraries for bioprospecting and biotechnology. Using a wide range of diverse molecular techniques, we will research the distribution of particularly useful (e.g.
  Targeting the Unfolded Protein Response to Develop Novel Antimicrobial Therapies (Ref: SF20/APP/DOVER)
  Dr LG Dover
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microbial pathogen resistance to antibiotics is an ever growing global concern. Antibiotics generally target microbial pathways important for survival and replication.
  The synthesis and evaluation of novel esters for the detection of pathogenic microorganisms (Ref: SF20/APP/TURNBULL)
  Dr G Turnbull
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The detection and differentiation of pathogenic microorganisms, those which cause disease in human beings and animals, routinely relies on the observation of a change of colour in the growth medium caused by the action of microbial enzymes on artificial substrates.
  Development of a three dimensional in vitro model of the human cornea to dissect the inflammatory events associated with sight-threatening ocular pathogens
  Dr C Dobson, Dr C Maldonado-Codina, Prof P Morgan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The presence of microbes at the corneal surface may trigger low grade discomfort through to acute eye infection and permanent loss of vision.
  Genetic analysis of the bacterial translocation machinery
  Dr D Huber
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Every subcellular compartment in a cell contains proteins, and yet all of these proteins are initially synthesised in the same compartment.
  Molecular mechanism of innate immunity mediated by the Toll/IL1 receptor signalling pathways.
  Prof N J Gay
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This group participates in the Wellcome Trust 4 year PhD programme in Developmental biology., MRC and BBSRC Doctoral Training Programmes.
