Showing 1 to 10 of 31
  Discovering new drugs for Mycobacterium abscessus infections in children
  Dr J Cox
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Applications are invited from candidates to undertake a PhD in the field of microbiology.
  Characterisation of the Gut Microbiome in Dogs and Cats
  Prof A Hilton, Dr T Worthington
Application Deadline: 16 December 2018
Professor Anthony Hilton, Aston University www.aston.ac.uk/lhs/staff/az-index/hiltonac/. Dr Tony Worthington, Aston University www.aston.ac.uk/lhs/staff/az-index/wortht/.
  Improving the performance of bacteriocins as natural food additives through the use of nanotechnology.
  Dr F Fernandez-Trillo
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
One of the major challenges to modern food industry is the demand by consumers of products that look appealing for longer periods of time and the preference by consumers for minimally processed products that do not contain “chemical” preservatives.
  Nucleating the growth of biofilms for biocatalysis with polymer chemistry
  Dr F Fernandez-Trillo, Dr T Overton
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Bacteria often attach to surfaces in the form of biofilms. Biofilms represent a problem in many medical and industrial settings as they are physically tough and hard to kill or remove from surfaces.
  Localised antibiotic delivery and release with luminescent mesoporous silica nanoparticles
  Prof Z Pikramenou, Dr J Blair
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Bacterial infections are becoming harder to treat as antibiotic resistance becomes increasingly prevalent. There is also a lack of drugs in the pipeline to take the place of those that can no longer be used due to resistance and novel therapeutic options are needed.
  Development of a spectroscopic assay for Potato Virus Y (PVY)
  Prof J Tucker, Prof T R Dafforn
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Potato virus Y (PVY) is a major and prevalent potato virus, causing necrosis (dead spots in leaves and tubers) that leads to a significant reduction in crop yield.
  Correlative microscopic analysis of uptake, localisation and transformations of nanoscale particles in freshwater foodwebs
  Dr I Lynch, Prof S Krause
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
The potential for human exposure to manufactured nanoparticles (NPs) has increased in recent years, in part through their incorporation into a wide range of commercial goods and medical applications.
  Microplastics as conduits of flame retardants in birds feeding on landfills
  Dr M Abdallah, Dr S. J Reynolds
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
There is increasing evidence of widespread ingestion of plastics by birds, mistaking it for food, during foraging. The demonstrated effects of plastic ingestion by birds include.
  Combining microfluidics and mathematical modelling to elucidate the effect of growth rate on antibiotic resistance and plasmid transfer
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr J U Kreft, Dr D Vigolo
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Our central hypothesis is that antibiotic susceptibility, fitness costs of resistance mutations or plasmids and plasmid transfer rates are affected by the growth rate and physiology of individual cells.
  Developing novel bioactive restorative materials
  Dr J Camilleri, Dr M Milward, Prof PR Cooper
Applications accepted all year round
This work will focus on gingival recession and the use of smart dental material in order to mitigate it. Gingival recession is prevalent in the adult population with studies suggesting that approximately 50% of the population has one or more recession defects this increases to 88% in over 65 year olds.
