  Epigentic control of muscle development: the impact of chromatin accessibility on gene regulation (MUNSTERBERGU20DTP1)
  Prof A E Munsterberg, Dr W Haerty
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Skeletal muscle is important for health and well-being throughout life. To understand better the factors that contribute to the maintenance of this important tissue, we study its development in the embryo.
  EASTBIO Time to hatch and feed: Neuroendocrine mechanisms underpinning appetite in birds
  Prof S Meddle, Prof G Leng
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies / The Roslin Institute. Aim. This fascinating PhD project will investigate the crucial time in every bird’s life.
  NERC GW4+ DTP CASE studentship: Diet and Foraging Ecology of Atlantic Storm Petrels: Geographical, temporal, taxonomic and human-mediated variation
  Dr R Thomas, Prof W Symondson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Seabirds are highly sensitive to changes within marine ecosystems. However, most research to date has primarily focused on larger species, typically apex predators.
  Novel autophagy pathways for the control of influenza virus infection (WILEMANQ20DTP)
  Prof T Wileman
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The recent outbreaks of avian influenza and the threat of a human influenza pandemic has highlighted the need to understand prevention and control of this virus by developing effective antiviral therapies.
  NERC GW4+ DTP PhD studentship: Adaptations of Antarctic penguins in a rapidly changing environment
  Dr J Younger
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  Investigating the regulation of coronavirus sub-genomic mRNA transcription, translation and the impact on the host response to infection.
  Dr I Brierley
Application Deadline: 1 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is a collaborative project between the groups of Professor Ian Brierley (Division of Virology, Cambridge) and Dr Erica Bickerton (Head of the Coronavirus Group, The Pirbright Institute).
  EASTBIO Functional studies of T cell-mediated immunity in birds
  Dr AB Balic, Prof J Kaufman
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies / The Roslin Institute. T cell-mediated immunity in birds, as in mammals, requires antigen uptake and presentation via antigen-presenting cells (APCs) suggesting that modulation of APC function is a rational target for optimising vaccine efficiency in birds.
  Reducing harm to wildlife from rodent pest control strategies
  Prof J Hurst, Prof P Stockley, Prof R Shore
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Current strategies to control rodent pests have substantial environmental impact, relying on baits that are highly toxic to vertebrates and attract non-target species such as wood mice, bank voles and field voles.
  Immunity to Influenza and Ebola viruses
  Prof A Townsend
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This started with the investigation of T cell recognition of peptides derived from intracellular proteins of Influenza (Townsend et al 1986), that evolved into the development of a live attenuated, single cycle Influenza vaccine, based on these principles (Powell et al, 2012; Baz et al, 2015, Holzer 2018).
