  Unravelling the mechanism of glutamyl-tRNA reductase, a target for broad-spectrum antibiotic development
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr RG Da Silva
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance is on the rise. This global threat is predicted to claim more lives than cancer by 2050 if not properly addressed.
  Bacterial chemical harpoons – how do TIE proteins function?
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr U Schwarz-Linek
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

In order to colonise a host and cause infections, bacteria need to gain a foothold by adhering to tissues such as cell surfaces. In general this is achieved through specific interactions between proteins and multimeric protein assemblies (pili) presented on the bacterial surface, and host molecules.
  Molecular and cellular mechanisms of regeneration in the invertebrate chordate amphioxus
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr I Somorjai
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cephalochordates ("amphioxus" or "lancelet") are an ideal model for studying developmental and regenerative processes (Bertrand and Escriva 2011; Somorjai 2017).
  Impact of environmental stressors on microbiota and health in a marine chordate
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr I Somorjai
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The gut microbiota - the complex community of bacteria, viruses and archaea with which we live - has an important impact on health, disease progression, lifespan and behaviour (Glendinning and Free 2014).
  The CRISPR system of the human pathogen Mycobacterium tuberculosis
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Prof M F White
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

CRISPR is a prokaryotic adaptive immune system, allowing detection and degradation of invading viruses. For the public and much of the scientific community, CRISPR is now synonymous with the minimal Class 2 systems Cas9 and Cas12.
  Combining molecular genetics and biochemistry to explore the biology of chromosomal DNA replication in the Archaea
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr S MacNeill
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Archaea constitute the third domain of life on Earth, comprise an estimated 20% of the planet’s biomass and make a major impact on both biosphere and atmosphere.
  Understanding the biological function of a highly unusual bacteriophage DNA ligase
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr S MacNeill
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

In all forms of life, DNA ligase enzymes are essential for joining strands of DNA when new DNA is being made or when damaged DNA is being repaired.
  Evaluating the efficacy of combinations of ‘repurposed’ approved drugs with antibiotics as ‘resistance breakers’ to treat infections with multi-drug resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Klebsiella pneumoniae and Escherichia coli.
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr P Coote
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is a global requirement to identify novel treatments to combat multidrug-resistant (MDR) Gram-negative bacteria. Incidence of infections caused by these pathogens is rising and effective treatment is problematic resulting in increased morbidity and mortality [1].
