  Disease Control and Conservation: Applying Grazing Pressure to Solve ‘The World's Worst Wildlife Infectious Disease’
  Dr D J S Montagnes, Prof A Fenton
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BACKGROUND & TIMELINESS. Naturally occurring diseases threaten ecosystem function, biodiversity, and humans (zoonotic infections).
  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.
  Accelerating disease resistance breeding for diploid potato germplasm improvement (JONESS20CASE)
  Prof J Jones
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pests and diseases reduce crop yields, requiring agrichemical sprays. We aim to replace agrichemicals with genetic resistance for pest and disease control.
  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.
  Membrane protein misfolding and disease: quality control pathways
  Dr L Swanton, Prof P Woodman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Misfolded proteins represent a continuous threat to cell viability, and if allowed to accumulate, can disrupt cellular function and induce cell death.
  Natural selection in action: molecular evolution of resistance to anti-microbials (BROWNJ20DTP)
  Prof J Brown
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Evolution of resistance to drugs and pesticides is a problem of great practical importance and is also one of the clearest demonstrations of natural selection in action.
  GW4 BioMed MRC DTP PhD studentship: Using nanotechnology, structural biology and genome editing to study how fungal receptors promote the spread of lethal diseases
  Dr N Brown
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the ‘GW4 BioMed MRC Doctoral Training Partnership’ which is offering up to 18 studentships for entry in September 2020.
  Exploiting symmetries for network control
  Research Group: Pure Mathematics
  Dr R Sanchez-Garcia, Dr M Brede
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In recent years the use of networks has been very successful in the study of complex real-world systems. From social, engineering, biological or communication networks, this approach has improved the understanding of structural and functional properties of such systems.
  Molecular mechanisms underlying Parkinson's disease
  Prof D Alessi
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is great need for improved understanding of the mechanisms underlying Parkinson’s disease, to help with the development of new drugs that slow or even halt progression of the disease.
  MRC Prize PhD Programme 2019/2020 Protein phosphorylation and ubiquitylation in cancer and neurodegenerative disease

Funding Type

PhD Type

The MRC Protein Phosphorylation and Ubiquitylation Unit is a world-famous centre for the study of cell signaling and how disruption to signaling pathways causes human disease.
