  Great North Cancer Research JGW Patterson Foundation PhD Studentship in Immuno-Oncology: Investigating Pathways to Immune-Mediated Pathology During Cancer Immunotherapy
  Prof R Plummer, Dr A Pratt
Application Deadline: 24 April 2019
Number of awards. 1. Start date and duration. October 2019 for 4 years. Overview. A recently developed class of “checkpoint inhibitor” (CPI) drugs enhance anti-cancer immunity with durable clinical benefit, but induce severe immune-related adverse events (irAEs) in up to 50% of patients.
  PhD Studentship in Molecular Microbial Biotechnology - Lean Biomanufacture of Surface Binding Proteins for Multi-functional Coatings
  Dr J Stach
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019
Number of awards. 1. Start date and duration. September 2019 for 4 years. Application closing date. 30 June 2019. Overview. There is an urgent need to replace plastics with materials that are organic and biodegradable.
  The effects of β-glucan and chitin polysaccharides from Mycoprotein on the health of the gut microbiota. (Ref: RDFC18/APP/MUNOZ)
  Dr J Munoz
Application Deadline: 26 April 2019
The Human Gut Microbiota (HGM) comprises two major phyla, the Bacteroidetes and Firmicutes, although important members of the Actinobacteria (Bifidobacterium) and Verrucomicrobia (Akkemansia) also make an important contribution to this ecosystem.
  PhD Studentship in Molecular Microbial Biotechnology
  Prof F Sargent
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
Number of awards. 1. Start date and duration. September 2019 for 4 years. Overview. Scientists around the world are working on solutions to help reduce carbon emissions ‐ and biologists can make a contribution here too.
  PhD Studentship in Cell and Molecular Biosciences – Circadian clocking of gene expression and its application in synthetic biology
  Dr Y Yuzenkova
Applications accepted all year round
Number of awards. 1. Start date and duration. 23 September 2019 for 3.5 years. Application closing date. Applications will be considered until a suitable candidate is found.
  Characterising the faecal virome in Crohn’s disease patients with known NOD2 variants compared to matched controls without gastrointestinal disease (ref: SF18/APP/Bridge)
  Dr SH Bridge
Applications accepted all year round
The human virome includes viruses that infect host cells and viruses that infect bacteria, and impacts on health and disease independently of classical viral disease.
  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
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.
  Molecular characterisation of novel pathways for cell envelope protein localisation in mycolic acid-producing actinomycetes (ref: SF18/APP/Sutcliffe)
  Prof I Sutcliffe
Applications accepted all year round
Mycolic acid-producing actinomycetes are of vital economic and medical importance. They include pathogenic species including Corynebacterium diphtheriae, Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Rhodococcus equi as well as industrially important organisms.
  Microbial community composition and biosynthetic potential of actinomycetes in the soil samples from extreme environments (ref: SF18/APP/SANGAL)
  Dr V Sangal
Applications accepted all year round
A number of bacterial species are able to survive in the extreme environmental conditions, e.g., hyper-arid soil of the Atacama desert (Busarakam et al., 2016; Castro et al., 2018).
