We have 164 Microbiology PhD Research Projects

A long (sequence) read: high throughput bacterial sequencing (LANGRIDGE_Q21DART)

In this project, Campylobacter and Salmonella isolates from diarrhoeal stool specimens will be investigated by applying high throughput HMW DNA extraction and long read sequencing technologies. Read more

Utilisation of microalgae for sustainable biotechnology

  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
Microalgae are a diverse group of photosynthetic freshwater or marine microorganisms that are widely studied with regard to their ecology or as model organisms in biological research. Read more

Dopamine-regulated mechanotransduction pathways in eye growth and myopia

Institute of Ophthalmology PhD Studentship. UCL Department / Division. UCL Institute of Ophthalmology. Duration of Studentship. 3.5 years, available to start December 2021/January 2022. Read more

How do evolutionary changes in innate immune genes influence the carriage of zoonotic pathogens

Zoonotic pathogens, such as COVID-19, reside in animal hosts before jumping species to infect humans. How diversity in host immune genes across species impact upon pathogen carriage are poorly understood. Read more

Expanding phylogenetic reconstruction in bacteria

Bacterial phylogenies are generally built using single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), as their behaviour is well-studied, and they usually produce robust phylogenetic trees. Read more

Mutational signatures in bacteria

Different mutational processes leave signatures in the variants generated over time in bacterial genomes. These processes can include chemical or environmental mutagens, as well as intrinsic metabolic processes and DNA repair pathways. Read more

Mechanisms of induction of protective lung tissue resident memory cells against influenza

Influenza is a global health threat to humans and livestock and animal influenza viruses are the CDC’s top zoonotic pathogen. There is a critical need to develop vaccines that provide broad protection and decrease the need for annual immunisation. Read more

Funded PhD studentship in microbial ecology and evolution: Unravelling the ecology and evolution of abundant but unexplored microbes

Unravelling the ecology and evolution of abundant but unexplored microbes. A 4-year PhD studentship in microbial ecology, starting in October 2021 or in February 2022, is now open for application at the University of Aberdeen, Scotland, UK. Read more
