  Evolution of multi-drug resistant gram negative clones
  Dr A McNally, Prof W Van Schaik
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Increasing antibiotic resistance in bacterial infections is a serious threat to modern medicine, so understanding why some bacteria become resistant to multiple antibiotics whereas others do not is an important challenge for microbiologists, doctors and vets.
  The role of Efflux in Antibiotic Resistance of Clinically Relevant Pathogens
  Dr J Blair
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antibiotics underpin all of modern medicine; they are used to treat bacterial infections, and to prevent infections after surgery and in patients with a suppressed immune system such as those undergoing cancer chemotherapy or organ transplantation.
  The role of pore-forming bacterial proteins in pneumonia and meningitis
  Prof T J Mitchell, Dr M Tomlinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The bacterium Streptococcus pneumoniae (the pneumococcus) is carried in the nasopharynx of most children and some adults without causing disease.
  Understanding and combatting antimicrobial resistance plasmids
  Dr M Buckner, Dr J Blair
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a major crisis for human medicine. Globally, untreatable bacterial infections are rapidly increasing, leaving us with limited treatment options.
  Genetic analysis of the bacterial translocation machinery
  Dr D Huber
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Every subcellular compartment in a cell contains proteins, and yet all of these proteins are initially synthesised in the same compartment.
  Computational and Polymer Sciences to Engineer Microbial Physiology
  Dr S Jabbari, Dr F Fernandez-Trillo
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mathematical modelling and statistical inference are key tools in understanding the life sciences. In this project, we will develop differential equation models and apply statistical inference techniques to understand how polymers can be engineered to be of practical use in microbiology.
  Engineering Microbial Physiology through Polymer and Computational Sciences
  Research Group: Materials Chemistry
  Dr F Fernandez-Trillo, Dr S Jabbari
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recently, there has been an increasing use of polymers to interface with bacteria and other microorganisms, either to treat microbial infections, to prevent and control biofilm formation, or as a platform to grow and maintain microbial cultures for biotechnology.
  Establishing a Scientific-Evidence Base for a Paradigm Shift for Regenerative Clinical Dentistry
  Dr J Camilleri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Management of diseases to the dental pulp is undertaken clinically using protocols that are historical and have no scientific background.
  Uncovering the saliva proteome in co-morbid chronic inflammatory diseases
  Dr M Grant, Prof I L C Chapple, Mr P Sharma
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Chronic inflammatory diseases such as periodontitis, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic kidney disease, diabetes and cardiovascular disease share common risk factors and biological pathways.
