Post Doc Anti-CRISPRPhage Biology Active
Added 9 days ago
University of Exeter, Cornwall, UK
Stineke Van Houte

CRISPR immunity protects bacteria against bacteriophage infections. Recent work from our lab demonstrates that phages that encode anti-CRISPR proteins immunosuppress bacterial hosts, which allows other phages to replicate when they infect the same host. Some anti-CRISPRs are better immunosuppressors than others, which likely impacts the “sociality” of these anti-CRISPR phages. This project aims to understand the mechanisms and the consequences of immunosuppression by anti-CRISPR phages.

Dr. Martha Clokie

To determine the risk posed to UK consumers by Salmonella which may enter the food chain via contaminated poultry and swine products from both the UK and Thailand, we will collect up to 300 Salmonella isolates from each country from swine and poultry. We will ensure that the Salmonella isolates are representative of the top 5 serovars from each country, from poultry and pigs, and if possible, have been isolated at different times. Whole genome sequencing (WGS) will be performed on all isolates, and phylogenetic reconstruction performed to examine Thai and UK lineages.

Assistant Professor Virology Expired
Added 8 months ago

The Department seeks candidates who are focused on studies of viral infection, including (but not limited to): molecular mechanisms of virus infection and pathogenesis; cell biology of infection; virus structure; viral evolution/interactions of viruses with their hosts; and host responses to viral infection. Candidates will be expected to develop and maintain an innovative, externally funded research program. We offer competitive startup and ongoing support, highly competitive salaries, multi-tiered faculty mentoring, a centralized graduate program, and an exceptionally collaborative departmental and institutional culture with abundant opportunities for both basic and translational research.

PhD MicrobiomeGut Expired
