About the Project
All bacteria need to interact with their environment to survive, but pathogens have particular demands to do this in an efficient way. We are studying the nanomachines that many bacteria use to move around in search of nutrients and the protein secretion systems that they use to export toxins. This project will use cutting edge molecular biology, biochemistry and structural biology including X-ray crystallography and single particle cryo electron microscopy.
4 Year DPhil Prize Studentships cover University fees, a stipend of ~£17,009 pa, and up to £5,300 pa for research costs and travel. The competition is open to applicants from all countries. See https://www.path.ox.ac.uk/content/prospective-graduate-students for full details and to apply.
