  Engineering synthetic circuits within bacteria to sense and control the gut microbiome.
  Dr D Riglar
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The microbes that live in our guts, together known as the gut microbiota, are essential for maintaining our health.
  Transcription control and immune evasion in African trypanosomes
  Research Group: Division of Cell & Molecular Biology
  Prof G Rudenko
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Trypanosomes are unicellular eukaryotes which cause African Sleeping Sickness, which is endemic to subSaharan Africa. Trypanosomes can be easily grown as suspension cell lines in the laboratory, where they are straightforward to manipulate and genetically modify.
  4 Year funded PhD position: Toxic secretion by bacterial nanomachines
  Dr T Costa
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Type IV secretion systems (T4SS) are ubiquitous nanomachines that assemble at the bacterial inner and outer membranes to orchestrate the delivery of proteins and DNA into bacterial and eukaryotic cell targets.
  The context dependence of disease spread and virulence in a pollinator system
  Dr P Graystock
Application Deadline: 13 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding the factors placing insect pollinators at risk is a research priority with our future food security reliant on the health of these important organisms.

  Investigation of the effect of host genetic variants on subgingival microbes and gingival inflammation in gingivitis and periodontitis
  Prof L Nibali
Application Deadline: 26 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Periodontal Infectogenomics studies how host genetic variants can affect the composition of the subgingival biofilm. The aim of this PhD is to test the effect of specific host genetic variants on periodontal inflammation and microbial growth in gingivitis and periodontitis.
  Using zebrafish to model Facioscapulohumeral muscle dystrophy and screen for drugs to enhance muscle stem cell health
  Dr R Knight, Dr P Zammit
Application Deadline: 26 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Facioscapulohumeral dystrophy (FSHD) is the 3rd most common muscle dystrophy leading to progressive muscle weakness of facial, shoulder and limb muscles and so impairing quality of life.

PhD Type

We are inviting applications for PhD studentship, funded jointly by Laurie Todd Foundation and Kingston Hospital Charity, to “investigate the association of high risk human papillomavirus (HPV) types and gastrointestinal cancer in a UK population”.
  Comparative genomic analysis of variant features within the Neisseria spp.
  Dr L Snyder
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The availability of rapid genome sequencing had generated an explosion of bacterial genome sequence data, much of which has not been fully explored and investigated.
  Intra-intestinal inactivation of residual antibiotics as a promising approach to fight against antimicrobial resistance.
  Dr M Khoder
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a grave threat to public health causing 50000 deaths per year in the US and Europe alone. With virtually no new antibiotic classes created in the new millennia, identifying novel strategies to preserve and extend the useful life of existing antibiotics has therefore become a priority.
