Exciting Funding Opportunity at MRC Centre for Medical Mycology at The University of Aberdeen Early Career Research Fellowships – Closing date extended to 12 June 2017
We seek outstanding individuals to develop an early independent research career in medical mycology. Individuals in their final year of PhD or with up to three years postdoctoral research experience will be eligible to apply. Appointed individuals will need to develop a cutting-edge, cross-disciplinary scientific research project involving at least two MRC CMM principal investigators (PI). It is envisaged that these Fellowships will position successful applicants for independent funding applications in the future, such as MRC Career Development Awards. Updates (Source: The Aspergillus Website - updates)

Antifungal peptides: a potential new class of antifungals for treating vulvovaginal candidiasis caused by fluconazole-resistant Candida albicans.
Vulvovaginal candidiasis/candidosis is a common fungal infection afflicting approximately 75% of women globally caused primarily by the yeast Candida albicans. Fluconazole is widely regarded as the antifungal drug of choice since its introduction in 1990 due to its high oral bioavailability, convenient dosing regimen and favourable safety profile. However, its widespread use has led to the emergence of fluconazole-resistant C. albicans, posing a universal clinical concern. (Source: The Aspergillus Website - updates)
