  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

PhD Type

The “superbug”, Methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a major threat to global health. Once inside a host, bacteria, like S.
  Bacterial iron uptake pathways as targets for the development of novel antimicrobials
  Dr M Thomas
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance is an ever increasing problem. Presently it is estimated to be responsible for 700,000 deaths p.a. and it is predicted that this figure will rise to 10 million by 2050.
  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.
  Sharpening the blunted neutrophil response to antimicrobial resistant fungal infection
  Dr P Elks, Prof A Condliffe, Dr S Johnston
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Life-threatening invasive fungal infection is a major health problem in the immunocompromised, and emerging drug resistance is a major threat to global health.
  Sharpening the blunted neutrophil response to antimicrobial resistant fungal infection
  Dr P Elks, Prof A Condliffe, Dr S Johnston
Application Deadline: 15 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project for inclusion in China Scholarship Council – University of Sheffield competition. More information is available at https://www.sheffield.ac.uk/postgraduate/phd/scholarships/csc.
  Transport of essential nutrients across the outer membrane of a bacterial pathogen
  Dr M Thomas
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gram-negative bacteria possess a second membrane, the outer membrane (OM), that serves as an additional line of defence against noxious agents, including antibiotics.
  Addressing the functional significance of distinct paths to catalytic sites within the exosome
  Dr P Mitchell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The exosome RNase complex contains two associated catalytic subunits, one of which has two distinct catalytic sites (Mitchell, 2014).
  Analysis of the exoribonuclease Rex1
  Dr P Mitchell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inhibition of one exosome catalytic subunit renders cells dependent upon another RNase called Rex1.
  Bactofilins and the bacterial cytoskeleton
  Dr E Hoiczyk
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Newly developed light and electron microscopy methods are revolutionising our understanding of bacterial cells. Once thought to be simple, bacteria have now been recognised at highly organised cells using many elements previously only known from eukaryotes.
  BBSRC White Rose DTP Studentship - A novel bacteriophage defence system to control antibiotic resistant Campylobacter jejuni, the most prevalent food-borne pathogen
  Prof D J Kelly, Dr J Rafferty
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Campylobacter jejuni is the most common cause of food-borne gastroenteritis in the western world. Human infections result from consumption of contaminated chicken and the incidence has increased in recent years, including the emergence of multi-drug resistant campylobacters.
  Biogenesis of the Clostridium difficile cell surface
  Dr R Fagan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in our hospitals. Infection normally follows disruption of the gut normal flora by broad-spectrum antibiotic treatment.
  Development of a novel immunotoxin
  Dr L J Partridge
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Immunotoxins represent a form of immunotherapy whereby antibodies are used to target a toxin, usually to cancer or infected host cells.
  Dissecting the mechanisms of antibiotic resistance in Clostridium difficile
  Dr R Fagan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antibiotic resistance in pathogenic bacteria is one of the greatest health challenges facing humanity today.
  Engineering E. coli as a cell factory for biotechnology
  Dr J Green
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The model bacterium Escherichia coli is metabolically versatile with ability to adapt to ever changing environmental conditions by reprogramming gene expression.
  Functional analysis of novel genes important in the physiology and pathogenesis of the human pathogen Campylobacter jejuni
  Prof D J Kelly
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Campylobacter jejuni and E. coli are the commonest cause of human bacterial gastroenteritis worldwide. Although pathogenic in humans, C.
