  Developing polymer-based diagnostics for bacterial disease
  Dr CS Mahon
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Modern healthcare has enabled vast improvements in human life expectancy and quality of life, yet a significant barrier to further improvements in treatments of many diseases is the lack of rapid diagnostic tests to enable their timely identification.
  Genome mining of novel antimicrobial natural products from new bacterial strains
  Dr H Deng, Prof M Jaspars
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.
  PhD in Target-directed synthesis of protein-protein interaction inhibitors
  Dr A Barnard
Application Deadline: 13 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

A fully funded PhD studentship position is available in the group of Dr Anna Barnard in the Department of Chemistry at the White City Campus of Imperial College London.
  Discovery of Antibiotics from Cyanobacteria (TRUMANJ20DTP)
  Dr A Truman
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacteria have the capacity to produce natural products with exquisite bioactivities, which makes these compounds excellent candidates as medicines and agrochemicals.
  Tackling the Bad Bugs: Chemical Tools to Study Bacterial Pathogenicity and Antimicrobial Resistance
  Prof G Wagner
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

An exciting PhD project in chemical biology is available in the group of Professor Gerd Wagner (Queen’s University Belfast). The project is concerned with the development of chemical tools to understand fundamental aspects of bacterial pathogenicity and antimicrobial resistance (AMR).
  (BBSRC DTP) Discovery and Editing Pathways to New Antibiotics
  Prof J Micklefield, Prof D Leys, Dr A Green
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is an urgent need for new antibiotics. The majority of antibiotics that are used to treat infectious diseases today are small molecules produced by microorganisms, called natural products, or derivatives thereof.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Design and Optimisation of Red/NIR Fluorescent Dyes for the Assessment of Antimicrobial Susceptibility
  Prof D Kell, Dr G Nixon
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The current anti-microbial resistance (AMR) crisis is well documented and the need for a very rapid antibiotic susceptibility test is key to preventing mis-diagnosis and subsequent mis-prescribing.
  Small molecule probes to study human enzymes involved in muscular dystrophy
  Dr L Willems, Dr M A Fascione
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Proteins on the surface of cells are often modified with diverse, complex carbohydrate structures. These carbohydrates, named glycans, play central roles in biology by regulating, for instance, cell recognition and signalling events.
