  PhD Studentship Opportunity in Machine learning and portfolio approaches to cystic echinococcosis area risk classification and prioritisation of interventions
  Dr J Prada
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cystic echinococcosis (CE) is a zoonotic parasitic disease of significant public health concern in many parts of the world. For example, over 5,000 new CE cases are reported in South America every year and a recent study has estimated that more than 150,000 people in Bulgaria, Romania and Turkey might be affected by CE.
  Healthy building design for controlling infectious disease transmission in developing countries
  Dr Z Luo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Infectious disease pandemics are brutal killers in human history. The recent COVID-19 outbreak in China has killed over 2.4K people globally, and more than 78K people are infected across 28 countries (As of 22th Feb 2020).
  Modelling the spread and control of livestock and zoonotic infectious diseases
  Assoc Prof M Tildesley, Dr E Gorsich, Prof M Keeling
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mathematical models are extensively used in both public-health and veterinary-health policy planning. Modern predictive models are now at the heart of policy decisions, and such models are having an increasing role in supporting decisions associated with livestock infections.
  Evaluating motor and cognitive function through gaze-control technology
  Dr D Souto
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gaze-control technology has proved invaluable in assisting people with neurodegenerative conditions, such as Motor Neuron Disease (MND) or Cerebral Palsy (CP), at times dramatically improving their quality of life by extending their ability to communicate independently.
  The Hippo pathway and Yap1 in vascular growth control in development and disease
  Prof B Hogan, Dr A. Cox
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lymphatic vessels play roles in the drainage of tissue fluid, trafficking of immune cells and the metastatic spread of cancer.
  Understanding the biomechanical changes associated with a popular walking programme to optimise care for individuals with arthritis and musculoskeletal conditions.
  Dr K Martin, Dr D Blana
Application Deadline: 29 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is an exciting, interdisciplinary project that brings together social science, data science and engineering, and will give the student invaluable skills for a career in academia or the medical technology sector.
  Development of a rapid screening method for Carbapenemase-resistant Enterobacteriaceae using volatile and non-volatile metabolite profiles
  Dr S Fowler, Dr T Felton, Dr W Ahmed
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nosocomial infections caused by Enterobacteriaceae are a major concern to clinicians. Species include Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, and Enterobacter cloacae, all of which are prevalent in ventilator-associated pneumonia.
  Structure and function of protein complexes of the eukaryotic glycoprotein folding quality control (ERQC) checkpoint enzyme, UGGT
  Dr P Roversi, Dr C Savva
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A wonderfully efficient quality control enzyme in the eukaryotic cell detects and stops glycoproteins that are on the way to be secreted but need time to form properly.
  Neuronal and biomechanical mechanisms underlying the control and plasticity of aimed limb movements
  Dr T Matheson, Dr R Swidbert
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most animal movements are driven by muscle contractions controlled by the nervous system, but there is now considerable evidence that passive forces, originating in muscles, tendons or other tissues, interact with active forces to generate limb movements in both vertebrates and invertebrates (Page et al.
  Investigating the roles of spinal cholinergic interneurons in the control of respiratory circuits in health and disease
  Prof G Miles, Dr S Sharples
Application Deadline: 1 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Neural Control of Movement Lab (http://ncm.wp.st-andrews.ac.uk), within the School of Psychology & Neuroscience at the University of St Andrews (Scotland, UK), currently has a PhD studentship available (beginning January, 2021) for an enthusiastic and highly motivated student with a background in neuroscience.
  The Consequences of Transmission Heterogeneities for Disease Outbreaks
  Prof A Fenton, Prof M Viney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There are ever-increasing concerns about the threat of emerging infectious diseases, in both wildlife (e.g., rabies, chytridiomycosis in amphibians, white nose syndrome in bats etc.) and humans (e.g., covid-19, Ebola, pandemic influenza, etc.).
  Cellular protein quality control in diabetes-associated heart disease: The insight into mechanisms and therapeutic potentials
  Dr V Liu, Dr L Swanton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cardiovascular complications are the leading causes of diabetes mortality. With the exception of vascular and valvular injuries, diabetic cardiomyopathy (DCM) is a distinct myocardial disease, which is characterised by abnormal cellular metabolism and defects in organelles function, leading to impaired cardiac function.
  The impact of gut microbiome and diet interplay on neurodegeneration
  Dr E Kevei
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s or Huntington’s disease represent major health risks and economic burden for the society.
  Covid19 biomarker discovery for diagnostic and therapeutic purpose
  Assoc Prof L Song, Prof E M H Wellington
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A novo coronavirus strain, belongs to the beta coronavirus genera, is responsible for the 2019-2020 coronavirus pandemic.
  De Novo Mutations and Human Disease
  Prof A Goriely, Prof A Wilkie
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

De novo mutations (DNMs) are a significant contributor to human disease, affecting ~1:300 new births. We study the mechanisms by which these spontaneous mutations arise in the first instance, concentrating on the tissue where most of them originate, the human testis.
