  Super-selectors: inter-host variation in antimicrobial resistance evolution
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr L McNally, Dr P Vale
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is currently an intense focus on antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in medical, scientific and political arenas owing to its broad and potentially devastating public health consequences.

  Dr D Humphreys, Prof S Baker, Dr T Darton
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

- Antimicrobial-resistant typhoid fever is fuelled by chronic Salmonella carriage. The world faces epidemics of untreatable typhoid fever caused by antimicrobial-resistant strains of Salmonella Typhi (~27 million cases/year).
  Answering key questions of One Health antimicrobial resistance using a new livestock research data platform
  Dr K Reyher
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project. Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is becoming an increasingly important topic worldwide, and veterinary medicines use - particularly in the agricultural sector - has come under sustained scrutiny.
  Resistant rivers: can antimicrobial resistance spread through our river networks?
  Dr J U Kreft, Dr J Larsen
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The widespread use of antibiotics in humans and animals and as growth promoters for livestock has not only selected for resistance genes but also for plasmids carrying them.
  EASTBIO: Application of MinION Nanopore sequencing to understand the impact of environmental changes on sentinel indicators of ecosystem health
  Dr E Watson
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are increasingly aware that human, veterinary and environmental health is intricately linked and farming and food production systems must not only be resilient to environmental changes and threats but the systems themselves must also perform with minimal environmental impact.
  Analysis and Treatment of Orthopaedic Pin Site Infections
  Dr J McEvoy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pin site infections are a major complication of external fixation of fractures, and bacterial biofilms are known to form on the pin surface.1 This project, in collaboration with Dr Shobana Dissanayeke (RHUL) and St Peter’s Hospital, Chertsey, will investigate bacterial biofilms that have been obtained from percutaneous pins used in orthopaedic fixation frames.
  Developing a unified computational framework to evaluate biological, environmental and veterinary performances of livestock farms
  Dr T Takahashi
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project. Livestock is the largest source of protein for humans and its existence is widely considered to be indispensable for various ecosystem services.
  Equine Veterinary Surveillance Network for the UK Equine Population
  Dr G Pinchbeck, Prof A Radford
Application Deadline: 6 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the UK, there are no comprehensive national surveillance data monitoring the extent and emergence of health and disease in the equine population.
  Finding Achilles Heel: Investigating how to control major bacterial pathogens (WEBBERQ20DART)
  Dr M Webber, Prof J Wain
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacterial infection remains a major cause of morbidity and mortality with hospital acquired infections still common. The increase in numbers of bacterial which are AMR (antimicrobial resistant) makes prevention of infection more important than ever.
  Evaluation of natural plant based botanicals as alternative to therapeutic antibiotics
  Dr C Situ
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

It has become widely recognised that antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the biggest health threats that mankind faces encompassing huge health and economic burdens on governments and societies in every region of the globe.
  Developing an intervention to maximise nurse antibiotic prescribing for Upper Respiratory Tract Infections (URTI)
  Dr L Price, Dr V Ness, Dr K McAloney-Kocaman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project reference number. SHLS19026. Antimicrobial resistance is a public health priority with human, financial and social costs.
  Investigation and exploration of health and therapeutic benefits of plant-derived secondary metabolites
  Dr C Situ, Prof J Bengoechea
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Plants and their products have revolutionarily helped and shaped human development throughout the history of mankind.

  Cracking down bacterial infection in bone by new photo-responsive nanoparticles
  Dr K Yeung
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bio-metals have been extensively used in orthopaedic implantations. However, bacterial infection and unsatisfactory integration at the bone-implant interface remain major post-operative complications.
  What is the functional mechanism underlying the impacts of ambient temperature on fertility, health, and development in outdoor living sows and offspring?
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Prof L Collins, Prof P Chapman, Dr N Forde
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020
