  Identification and characterisation of bacteriocins from environmental samples active against strains of Clostridium difficile
  Dr C Penfold, Dr K Winzer, Dr Ruth Griffin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Clostridium difficile is a cause of neonatal enteritis in livestock such as pigs, cattle and horses. Affected animals develop respiratory problems, abdominal distention and bloody diarrhoea leading to weight loss and in extreme cases mortality.
  Natural toxins and their synthetic analogues as tools to study ion channels and as potential drugs and pesticides
  Dr I R Mellor
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will use a combination of electrophysiological techniques such as voltage-clamp and patch-clamp with molecular biology and protein expression to understand how natural toxins and their synthetic analogues act on ion channels in the nervous system.
  Mechanisms behind fetal vascular dysfunction in pregnancies complicated by diabetes and pre-eclampsia
  Dr L Leach
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The central research focus of our group is to understand the mechanisms regulating two key functions of human blood vessels. permeability and angiogenesis.
  How do organelles use short tracks to make long trips in cells
  Dr A Hume
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The cells of our body contain internal structures (organelles) that perform essential functions e.g. energy production. Organelle transport is vital for function and the viability of cells and the whole body.
  Sequence variation and epigenomic mechanisms underlying human neuropsychiatric and neurodegenerative diseases
  Dr HM Knight
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is the decade of the ‘brain’ and this is also the decade of advancements in ‘genomic technologies’. This project aims to use cutting edge sequencing technologies and molecular approaches to understand susceptibility to human disorders of the brain.
  Saving the planet through carbon recycling: engineering bacterial capture of gasified waste for bioplastics production
  Dr K Winzer, Prof N Minton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change caused by the release of greenhouse gases from fossil fuels and through change of land use threatens life on our planet.
  PhD in Multi-mode microscopy to probe bacteria-surface interactions
  Prof M Alexander, Prof P Williams
Application Deadline: 3 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will be focused on using a novel microscopy technique, Digital Inline Holographic Microscopy (DIHM) to quantify and image the interaction between oral bacteria and surface-bound CPC within a mouthwash formulation.
  Adjuvant therapies for mupirocin-resistant bacteria
  Dr B Bonev, Dr A Cockayne
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Multi-drug resistant Staphylococcus aureus has been able to adapt constantly to therapeutic use of antibiotics and remains an important source of clinical complications, morbidity and mortality.
  Biology and genetics of reproduction in filamentous fungi
  Prof P S Dyer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Filamentous fungi are of importance in the food, industrial and medical sectors and have important roles in the ecology of natural ecosystems.
  Functional characterization of Neisserial toxin-antitoxin systems
  Dr N Oldfield, Dr D Turner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Toxin-antitoxin (TA) systems are commonly found in both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria and comprise a stable toxin able to stall bacterial replication and an antitoxin that neutralises the activity of the toxin.
  Defining the sequence requirements for neo-centromere function in the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe
  Dr W R A Brown, Dr W Wickstead
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Centromeres are the regions of the chromosome necessary for accurate segregation at cell division. They bind a complex set of proteins called the kinetochore which in turn tethers the chromosome to the microtubules of the spindle at cell division.
  Discovering new DNA repair enzymes using archaea as a model for mammals
  Dr E Bolt, Dr T Allers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD research project will combine protein biochemistry and molecular biology methods, and will provide detailed training into how to analyse gene and protein function.
  Role of lipids in regulating in vivo chemotaxis
  Dr A Renault
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Aberrant cell migration is a critical factor in the progression of many diseases including cancer and atherosclerosis.
  Characterisation of novel inhibitors of vascular injury due to inflammation
  Dr V Ralevic
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Myeloperoxidase (MPO) is a haemoprotein that is highly expressed in neutrophils and is secreted during injury and inflammation to assist in host defence reactions by producing antimicrobial reactive oxygen species.
  4-Year PhD Studentship in “Novel Catalysis Enabling Streamlined Pharmaceutical Synthesis"
  Dr R M Denton, Dr L Ball
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type
