  Biochemical mechanism controlling bacterial evasion of human inflammasome
  Dr D Boucher, Dr M van der Woude
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Your body is constantly targeted by pathogens like Salmonella, a food-borne. pathogen. Immune cells recognize and protect your body against infections.
  Caught in a Venus flytrap: investigating the segregation dynamics of a multidrug resistance plasmid
  Dr D Barilla, Dr M Hawkins
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacterial multidrug resistance is a growing burden on human health worldwide. Large, low copy number plasmids carrying resistance genes shuttle easily from cell to cell in bacterial populations, causing intra-species and inter-species spreading of antibiotic resistance.
  Developing phage therapy to control plant pathogenic bacteria in the rhizosphere microbiome
  Dr V Friman
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant pathogenic bacteria cause considerable economic losses to food production systems. The main reason for this is that hardly any effective control methods exist to mitigate this damage.
  Does plant pathogen adaptation in environmental reservoirs and secondary host affect its virulence and risk for transmission?
  Dr V Friman, Prof M Brockhurst, Dr D Jeffares
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Even though opportunistic plant pathogens must survive in various natural. environments during transmission between hosts, this crucial part of their life-.
  Ecological and evolutionary interactions in insect symbiont communities
  Dr J Ferrari
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most organisms host bacterial symbionts, which can substantially affect the biology of their hosts. For example, they can alter the host’s nutrition, reproduction, immunity and protect the host from environmental stresses.
  Ecological communities in a changing environment
  Prof C Dytham, Dr M van der Woude, Dr A J Wood
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In an era of rapid environmental change predicting the future of ecological communities is vital if mitigation or adaptation is to be successful.
  Gaming the system: how bacterial pathogens steal food from commensals
  Prof G H Thomas, Prof A J Wilkinson, Dr M van der Woude
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The mammalian gut is a complex environment where communities of bacteria. live together creating a robust microflora that protects us from infections.
  How does soil microbial diversity impact upon above-ground drought tolerance in plants?
  Dr A Hodge, Dr J Ferrari, Prof J Gray
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microbes perform several key roles in soils including in the supply of many. nutrients through the degradation of soil organic matter, and can contribute to.
  Metabolomics informatics
  Prof J P J Chong, Dr E Rand
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are collecting untargeted metabolomics data on microbiomes associated with the process of anaerobic digestion (the conversion of waste biomass to biogas).
  Molecular adaptation in Leishmania parasites
  Dr D Jeffares, Prof J Mottram
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Leishmania are single-celled protozoan parasites of the Order Trypanosomatidae that cause the neglected tropical disease leishmaniasis.
