Programme description

Our PhD/MPhil Medical Microbiology programme enables you to undertake a research project that will improve understanding of Medical Microbiology.

As a postgraduate research student in medical microbiology, you will be based in the Microbiology, Biofilm and Microbiome Research Group.

While there is some flexibility in research themes, we generally offer projects involving the study of one or more of the following topics:

  • microbial pathogenicity and infection
  • in vitro modelling
  • probiotics
  • antibiotic or microbicide resistance/susceptibility
  • human microbiome
  • interactions between bacteria and eukaryotic cell systems.

As well as providing research experience in applied microbiological techniques, we work with collaborators both within the University and, where appropriate, externally to give you valuable experience in methods including confocal microscopy, metabolomics, next generation sequencing, transcriptomics and proteomics.

Career opportunities

Your postgraduate research degree will open up a range of career opportunities after you graduate.
