Predoctoral position: Antimicrobial resistance in Neisseria gonorrhoeae
Chris Kenyon’s group at the Institute of Tropical Medicine in Antwerpen, Belgium is seeking a pre-doctoral researcher to study antimicrobial resistance in Neisseria gonorrhoeae. This will involve developing phage cocktails against N. gonorrhoeae. Must speak Dutch and English.
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.
We are now seeking applications from highly committed, motivated and talented postdoctoral researchers to join the phage research team at Northumbria University for a fixed term, 24 months project in collaboration with clinicians at the Great Northern Children’s hospital, Newcastle upon Tyne. This Action Medical Research funded project will characterise the intestinal virome of preterm, low-birthweight infants to determine bacteriophage groups that are present in the early gut flora in neonates.
