  Protein engineering enzymes for Industry
  Prof K A Watson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are interested in key features of protein sequence - structure - function relationship, and how this information can be translated to health.
  Forensic acarology: the importance of mites in forensic investigations
  Dr M A Perotti
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Forensic acarology. the utility/contribution of mites in criminal investigations, in illegal trade, in cases of human and animal neglect, etc.
  Interactions between introduced tree species and native mycorrhizal fungi in the UK
  Dr BJ Pickles
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Mycorrhizal symbioses are one of the most extensive and important biotic interactions in terrestrial ecosystems, typically providing plants with improved access to nutrients in exchange for carbohydrates produced via photosynthesis.
  Silver ion-based antimicrobials: mechanisms of toxicity and resistance
  Dr G Mulley, Prof S C Andrews
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"The emergence and persistence of bacterial strains with resistance to multiple classes of antibiotics has led to renewed interest in the antimicrobial properties of silver ions.
  Developing a virus-like particle (VLP) Polio vaccine
  Dr G Mulley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Rationale. Poliovirus is a non-enveloped RNA virus, spread via the faecal-oral route, that causes the infectious disease Poliomyelitis (Polio).
  Molecular-genetic analysis of intra- and extra-cellular iron reduction systems in bacteria: role in gut colonisation and utilisation of dietary iron sources.
  Prof S C Andrews
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The innate immune defense systems respond to bacterial infection by reducing the amount of available iron in order to restrict bacterial growth.
  The non-human biological trace evidence of shallow graves
  Dr M A Perotti
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"A number of non-human biological traces are present in or around corpses shallowly buried in soil. This project attempts to characterize the different types of traces, and inform on the role they can play in the forensic analysis of a crime scene.
  Microbiology and ecology of microbes in our rivers - their niche distribution and functional implications
  Dr S Gweon
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"The distributions of microorganisms in our rivers and their interactions play an important role to environment and human health.
  The relationship between dietary iron and zinc, and the gut microbiota: Can dietary iron and zinc regime be exploited to improve health?
  Prof S C Andrews
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"The gut microbiota (100 trillion cells) outnumber human cells by 10 to 1. Its composition of around 500 to 1000 species is specific for each individual and is dynamic, changing with age, health and diet.
  The Gut Microbiota and Colorectal Surgery

Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Background. Antibiotic use prior to and following colorectal surgery is conventional practice, and is aimed at reducing the incidence of postoperative infection which is a major risk of such surgery.
  Prebiotics and synbiotics for human health - converting biomass into functional food ingredients
  Prof R Rastall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Prof. Rastall is interested in research in the area of prebiotic oligosaccharides, synbiotic combinations with probiotics and the impact of structure on the gut fermentation of carbohydrates.
