This 3.5 year, fully funded PhD, seeks to examine the relationships of hobby farmers with their animals and with animal disease, with a distinct focus on antimicrobial use and resistance.
  Blending traditional and new animal health solutions to support agro-pastoral livelihoods under climate change
  Prof E Morgan, Dr M Bozzola
Application Deadline: 29 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Smallholder farmers in low income countries face unique and pressing challenges, in particular the need to adapt management to respond to climate change related threats, and to increase production efficiency without damaging environments that are often particularly sensitive.
  Disease phenomics - quantifying the development of disease symptoms in infected plants
  Dr S A Rolfe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biology is undergoing a revolution as ‘omic technologies allow us to make hundreds or thousands of measurements on large populations of plants.
  Cellular mechanisms of detrimental skeletal muscle remodeling induced by cardiac dysfunction
  Dr T.S. Bowen, Dr D Steele
Application Deadline: 14 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The loss of skeletal muscle mass and strength is a key impairment in many disease states. This occurs in both limb and respiratory muscles and leads to pulmonary complications and severe disability.
  Understanding resistance and tolerance to chytrid fungal disease in amphibians to improve conservation
  Dr L Grogan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project will involve working with captive animals (Australian barred frogs and tadpoles, including the endangered Fleay’s barred frog) to understand host responses to infection and mechanisms of resistance and tolerance to the devastating fungal disease, frog chytridiomycosis.
  Ca2+ signalling in neurodegeneration and Alzheimer’s disease
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Prof I A Hope
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human variants of the ryanodine receptor, the main intracellular calcium ion channel, could be responsible for Alzheimer’s disease.
  Investigating the link between amyloid-β oligomers, neuroinflammation and cognitive deficits in preclinical models for Alzheimer’s Disease
  Dr M Harte, Prof J Neill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Currently four out of the five pharmacological treatments used for Alzheimer’s disease (AD) are acetylcholinesterase inhibitors aimed at boosting the amount of acetylcholine in the brain, with the fifth being an N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonist.
  Repurposing cardiovascular disease medicines to prevent neurodegenerative diseases: Analyses of electronic health records

  Expanded potential stem cells for regenerative medicine, immunotherapy, and biotechnology
  Prof P Liu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Embryonic stem cells (ES cells) and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS cells) are pluripotent and thus hold great promise in regenerative medicine, studying disease mechanisms and drug discovery.
