Assistant Professor

University of Massachusetts Medical School, Department of Microbiology and Physiological Systems

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.

NERC CENTA Environmental Science PhD Studentships

NERC, University of Warwick

Dr. Eleanor Jameson, Andrew Millard, and Dr. Freya Harrison

Join @Ellie__Jameson, @friendlymicrobe and @milja001 to:

  • Examine the structure of phage communities from a range of environments with metagenome sequencing.
  • Construct a synthetic model biofilm in the laboratory, which is representative of waste water treatment biofouling.
  • Determine the efficacy of phage communities from the different environments in degrading the synthetic biofilm.

Unpicking the role of bacteriophage in the gut microbiome in health and disease

Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership

Dr. Eleanor Jameson, University of Warwick

The gut microbiome consists of viruses, bacteria, archaea and eukaryotes, this project seeks to understand the role of viruses. To date research effort has focused on bacteria, however the gut virome remains underexplored, …

Research Technician

University of Leicester

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 …

Senior Research Assistant

Northumbria University

Dr. Darren Smith, Northumbria University

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.
