About the Project
This PhD project in the newly established research group of Dr Roger Draheim is responsible for implementation of a novel “biological antibiotic screening” platform within the School of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences at the University of Portsmouth. The overall aim of this project is to develop this screening technology in order to sharply reduce the economic cost required for antibiotic discovery to the point where it becomes adopted as the de facto standard within the pharmaceutical industry. This multidisciplinary project will be conducted within newly renovated laboratory space and spans a broad range of biological sciences including, but not limited to: molecular biology, microbiology, synthetic biology, biochemistry, high-throughput screening and collection/management of large data sets (i.e. big data). Applicants should therefore ideally have previous experience in one or more of these areas, although they will receive training in all relevant areas.
In addition, students will have access to a vast number of training resources available at through the Graduate School at the University of Portsmouth including those geared toward improving presentation skills, time-management and project organisation skills, reviewing literature, thesis writing, data analysis and statistics, and other various related training modules.
Portsmouth is a vibrant waterfront city on the south coast of England and is within easy reach of London. The city is compact and friendly with the university at its heart.
