 About the Program

This post offers an exciting opportunity to work on a new approach to the treatment of bacterial infections by inhibiting the attachment of the pathogen to the human host cell. This project aims to develop these into more effective anti-bacterial drugs by designing more potent and stable peptides and peptidomimetics. The new anti-adhesives will be tested in a complex 3D model of human skin using clinical isolates of pathogenic bacteria, and in a human bladder model under flow conditions using UREC.

Subject areas


  • PhD in microbiology or related subject area either awarded or submitted.
  • Previous mammalian cell culture experience is essential as is experience in designing and developing research, troubleshooting and problem-solving.
  • Previous experience of protein structural determination or peptide design and cell imaging techniques is desirable.
  • Expertise in handling hazardous pathogens and some experience with mammalian cell culture.
  • The applicant will need to work effectively with scientists in several disciplines and be committed to team work.
  • Training will be provided in other techniques.
