Understanding radionuclide behaviour at the plant-soil interface to direct bioremediation strategies for contaminated land

This PhD project will use plant biology, microbiology, soil geochemistry, and radiochemistry approaches to investigate the role that plants and associated microorganisms can play in managing and potentially decontaminating radioactive contaminated land, such as by ‘phytoremediation’. Read more

Investigation of mucosal immune responses to respiratory pathogens including SARS-CoV-2 and influenza viruses and related vaccines

COVID-19 pandemic caused by SARS-CoV-2 virus infection has resulted in significant morbidity and mortality. Despite the current vaccination that reduces the numbers of severe COVID-19 cases and death, it fails to prevent new infections in many people which still result in high numbers of hospitalisation.

Unlocking the relationship between host metal distribution and pathogen phenotype in tuberculosis

  Research Group: Biochemistry
Mycobacterium tuberculosis (M.tb) is the leading cause of death by a bacterial pathogen, with 1.5 million deaths estimated in 2020. Read more

Mathematical modelling of herpes simplex virus transmission in 2- and 3- dimensions

This is an exciting opportunity to undertake an EPSRC-funded PhD that will combine experimental work with mathematical modelling to describe the transmission of the human pathogen herpes simplex virus (HSV) in human cells and tissue models, and develop a comprehensive tool for assessing the parameters that influence virus transmission.

PhD Studentship in Biology: Exploring the Role of Nutrient Transport Mechanisms in Models of Animal-Microbe Symbiosis

Overview. Understanding how symbiotic relationships between microorganisms and host animals are maintained is key to our understanding of how their physiology, ecological dynamics, evolutionary processes and, ultimately, survival are influenced. Read more
