  Genome mining of novel antimicrobial natural products from new bacterial strains
  Dr H Deng, Prof M Jaspars
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is rising to dangerously high levels in all parts of the world. In Europe alone, drug-resistant bacteria are estimated to cause 25,000 deaths annually and cost more than US$1.5 billion every year in healthcare expenses and productivity losses.
  New antimicrobial agents for biofilm-related infections
  Dr K Fairfull-Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The adhesion of bacteria to surfaces and their subsequent ability to aggregate into colonies called biofilms is a significant problem in healthcare systems around the world.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Killing the unkillable. Developing bacterial capture compounds to identify new targets against antimicrobial resistant Staphylococcus aureus
  Dr R Corrigan, Dr D Williams
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

  Novel synthetic approaches to antimicrobial natural products and investigations of their bioactivity
  Prof A Malkov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of the project is to develop new highly effective anti-tubercular agents. Previously, it has been established that terpenes isolated from marine organisms possess a number of important antibacterial properties.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Design and Optimisation of Red/NIR Fluorescent Dyes for the Assessment of Antimicrobial Susceptibility
  Prof D Kell, Dr G Nixon
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The current anti-microbial resistance (AMR) crisis is well documented and the need for a very rapid antibiotic susceptibility test is key to preventing mis-diagnosis and subsequent mis-prescribing.
  Chemo-enzymatic Synthesis and Potential Applications of Novel Heterocyclic Alkaloids
  Dr H Deng, Dr L Trembleau
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is rising to dangerously high levels in all parts of the world. In Europe alone, drug-resistant bacteria are estimated to cause 25,000 deaths annually and cost more than US$1.5 billion every year in healthcare expenses and productivity losses.
  (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.
  (MRC DTP) Design and synthesis of new antivirulence drugs for treatment of tuberculosis
  Dr L Tabernero, Dr S Butterworth, Prof D Procter
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tuberculosis (TB) remains a major health problem that affects billions of people worldwide and the emergence of severe anti microbial resistance (AMR) to current antibiotics is now the main challenge to eradicate the disease.
  Neuropeptide Research - PhD Opportunity at a World Class Institution
  Assoc Prof M Muttenthaler, Assoc Prof I Vetter
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are seeking talented and highly motivated PhD candidates for the following multidisciplinary project. Neuropeptides are key mediators in many biological functions and understanding their interaction with target proteins is fundamental to unravel the underlying mechanism of diseases.
