TGAC/IFR Computational Biology Fellowship in Molecular Epidemiology / Genomics of Bacterial Foodborne Pathogens

The Genome Analysis Centre (TGAC) with the Institute of Food Research (IFR) are offering a five-year fellowship in computational microbiology within the field of molecular epidemiology, comparative genomics, or microbial population genetics of bacterial foodborne pathogens. The position is aimed at outstanding early-career computational biologists and bioinformaticians who wish to establish themselves as scientific leaders within a dynamic research environment. Fellowships are awarded with a competitive salary dependent on qualifications and experience and a significant research support grant including a sequencing budget and a Post-doctoral Research Assistant post.

Identifying novel antimicrobials to target gut and food pathogens

Applications Close: 15 May 2015

The current rise in antibiotic resistance has coincided with a decrease in discovery and production of new antibiotics. Although research has identified new promising antimicrobials, many have difficulty with stability and activity in complex environments like the gut or food matrices. This project will use bacterial isolates, derived from human gut and food backgrounds, which have demonstrated antimicrobial activity to test the hypothesis that mining bacteria from the same niche as the pathogen will identify novel antimicrobials which are uniquely suited to act in this niche.

The study will use microbiology, in vitro colon culture, next generation sequencing, molecular biology and protein biochemistry to identify and characterise novel antimicrobials and assess their activity against important pathogens in gut and food matrix environments. This Walsh Fellow project will benefit from extensive experience and related projects on the discovery and application of novel antimicrobials.
