  Improving overheating risk assessment procedures in urban dwellings
  Dr C Hopfe
Application Deadline: 3 January 2019
Reference number. ABCE18/CH. Start date of studentship. 1 April 2019. Closing date of advert. 3 February 2019. Interview date. tbc.
  Characterising Clostridium difficile defence strategies against bacteriophages
  Prof M Clokie, Dr A Millard
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Healthcare associated infections are a major problem for patients and a global health challenge. Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) is particularly problematic, for example the UK has ~20,000 infectious diarrhoeal cases every year, and progressive complications can lead to death in ~3% of infected patients.
  Serine/threonine protein kinase mediated regulation of protein secretion in mycobacteria
  Dr G Mukamolova, Dr H O'Hare
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Tuberculosis remains a major global threat as it affects humans and production animals. Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Mycobacterium bovis, the causative agents of tuberculosis in human and animals, are highly successful pathogens which secrete multiple virulence factors.
  Regulation of neuronal excitability and synaptic transmission by metabolic demand in health and disease
  Prof I D Forsythe, Dr J Steinert
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
The brain uses vast metabolic resources to maintain electrical excitability and to integrate sensory information (Harris et al., 2012).
  Reorganisation of cortical microcircuit activity under anaesthesia
  Dr M O Okun, Dr V Marra
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
How does general anaesthesia work? Although general anaesthetics are in use for over 150 years, the outlines of the answer began to emerge only in the last decades.
  Using state-of-the-art proteomics to study the cellular and extracellular protein composition in human kidney disease; identification of novel biomarkers and bioactive drug targets in IgA Nephropathy
  Dr A Didangelos, Prof J Barratt
Applications accepted all year round
One of the key pathological characteristics of IgA nephropathy (IgAN) is the maladaptive and chronic accumulation and remodelling of the extracellular matrix (ECM) in affected glomeruli leading to fibrosis and progressive loss of function.
  Towards improving resilience outcomes for people with dementia
