  Gaming the system: how bacterial pathogens steal food from commensals
  Prof G H Thomas, Prof A J Wilkinson, Dr M van der Woude
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The mammalian gut is a complex environment where communities of bacteria. live together creating a robust microflora that protects us from infections.
  Analysis of pathogen determinants recognized by the hypervariable immune receptor Dscam
  Dr M Soller
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. To mount an immune response, host organisms must first recognize the pathogen with which they are infected. The first line of defense against pathogen infection in animals is provided through the innate immune response.
  The role of Efflux in Antibiotic Resistance of Clinically Relevant Pathogens
  Dr J Blair
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antibiotics underpin all of modern medicine; they are used to treat bacterial infections, and to prevent infections after surgery and in patients with a suppressed immune system such as those undergoing cancer chemotherapy or organ transplantation.
  GW4 BioMed MRC DTP PhD studentship: Using nanotechnology, structural biology and genome editing to study how fungal receptors promote the spread of lethal diseases
  Dr N Brown
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the ‘GW4 BioMed MRC Doctoral Training Partnership’ which is offering up to 18 studentships for entry in September 2020.
  Targeting an Achilles heel in bacterial outer membrane biogenesis: Strategies to combat bacterial infection by targeting the periplasmic chaperone SurA
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr A Zhuravleva, Prof S E Radford
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In February 2017 the World Health Organisation published a list of antibiotic-resistant "priority pathogens" – a catalogue of 12 families of bacteria that pose the greatest threat to human health.
  Characterisation of bacterial effectors delivered by the type VI secretion system
  Dr M Thomas
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many pathogenic bacteria secrete protein ’effectors’ that benefit the pathogen by allowing it to subvert, damage or kill the host.
  (BBSRC DTP) Discovery and Editing Pathways to New Antibiotics
  Prof J Micklefield, Prof D Leys, Dr A Green
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is an urgent need for new antibiotics. The majority of antibiotics that are used to treat infectious diseases today are small molecules produced by microorganisms, called natural products, or derivatives thereof.
  Regulation of the actin cytoskeleton in health and disease
  Dr J Gallop
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

An understanding of the actin cytoskeleton is critical for determining how cells connect to each other, move and have a distinct architecture.
  MRC DTP 4 Year PhD Programme: Bacterial stress sensing and antibiotic action
  Dr U Zachariae, Dr M Bergkessel
Application Deadline: 11 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is offered as part of the University of Dundee 4-year MRC DTP Programme “Quantitative and Interdisciplinary approaches to biomedical science”.
  Catching BAM in the act: a strategy for novel antibiotics?
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr D Brockwell, Prof S E Radford, Prof N A Ranson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gram negative bacteria are important pathogens to both humans and livestock responsible for life-threatening opportunistic systemic hospital infections, respiratory and urinary tract infections and gastric ulcers.
