  Adjuvant therapies for mupirocin-resistant bacteria
  Dr B Bonev, Dr A Cockayne
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Multi-drug resistant Staphylococcus aureus has been able to adapt constantly to therapeutic use of antibiotics and remains an important source of clinical complications, morbidity and mortality.
  Alpha-defensin haplotypes and IgA nephropathy risk
  Prof J A L Armour, Prof O Hanotte
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human alpha-defensin genes DEFA1 and DEFA3 encode short antimicrobial peptides that are important components of the innate immune system, and are subject to copy number variation (CNV) with individuals having between 3 and 18 copies.
  Biology and genetics of reproduction in filamentous fungi
  Prof P S Dyer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Filamentous fungi are of importance in the food, industrial and medical sectors and have important roles in the ecology of natural ecosystems.
  Characterisation of novel inhibitors of vascular injury due to inflammation
  Dr V Ralevic
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Myeloperoxidase (MPO) is a haemoprotein that is highly expressed in neutrophils and is secreted during injury and inflammation to assist in host defence reactions by producing antimicrobial reactive oxygen species.
  Defining the sequence requirements for neo-centromere function in the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe
  Dr W R A Brown, Dr W Wickstead
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Centromeres are the regions of the chromosome necessary for accurate segregation at cell division. They bind a complex set of proteins called the kinetochore which in turn tethers the chromosome to the microtubules of the spindle at cell division.
  Detecting Schistisome Infection in Biomphalaria and Bulinus Snails
  Dr C M Wade, Dr S Goodacre
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Schistosomiasis (bilharzia) is a neglected tropical disease that affects some 252 million people worldwide. It is caused by parasitic flatworms of the genus Schistosoma and is contracted through human contact with contaminated water.
  Discovering new DNA repair enzymes using archaea as a model for mammals
  Dr E Bolt, Dr T Allers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD research project will combine protein biochemistry and molecular biology methods, and will provide detailed training into how to analyse gene and protein function.
  DNA replication, recombination and repair in Archaea
  Dr T Allers, Dr E Bolt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Additional Supervisor. Anita Marchfelder (University of Ulm, Germany). Archaea are the third domain of life, alongside eukaryotes and bacteria.
  Enzymes of endocannabinoid turnover in inflammatory responses
  Dr SPH Alexander
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over recent years, we have generated, developed and established a wide range of assays for different enzyme activities.
  Exploring relationships between Wild house mouse ecology and immunology
  Prof J Bradley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding the causes of variability in the immune systems response underpins our knowledge of disease susceptibility, control of infectious diseases and ultimately, healthy aging.
