  The Consequences of Transmission Heterogeneities for Disease Outbreaks
  Prof A Fenton, Prof M Viney
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

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., Ebola, pandemic influenza, chikungunya fever etc.).
  Resistance Evolution in Response to Emerging Wildlife Disease. PhD in Biosciences (NERC GW4 + DTP)
  Dr B Tschirren
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr Barbara Tschirren, Department of Biosciences, Centre for Ecology and Conservation, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter.
  Interactions between agricultural adaptations to climate change and vector-borne disease
  Dr F Hawkes
Application Deadline: 10 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project will explore how proposed and/or practiced agricultural adaptations to climate change in Tanzania may impact on the ecology and biology of insect vectors of disease and, ultimately, disease risk.
  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).
  Antibiotic exposure impacts on fish health in natural freshwaters. PhD in Biosciences (NERC FRESH)
  Prof C R Tyler
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead supervisor. Professor Charles Tyler, Department of Biosciences, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter.
  Engineering de novo microscopic ecologies to monitor and dissect disease spread
  Dr T Gorochowski, Dr S English
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding what regulates the spread of diseases in space and time is critical if we are to combat them effectively.
  Microbial ecology and metagenomics of a foodborne pathogen (MATHERQ20DTP)
  Dr A Mather
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Campylobacter is the commonest bacterial cause of diarrhoeal disease in the UK, where is it most often associated with poultry, and amongst the top five causes of diarrhoeal disease in low and middle-income countries.
  Nutritional Physiology in Drosophila - understanding the role of nutrients in disease, lifelong health and ageing
  Dr M Piper
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

PhD Student Position. Nutritional Physiology in Drosophila. Monash University, Australia. A PhD position is available under the supervision of Dr Matthew Piper at Monash University (http://piperlab.org/) (http://tiny.cc/bd867y), School of Biological Sciences, in Melbourne, Australia.
  Some like it hot: how mismatch between host and pathogen thermal ecology influences adaptation to global change
  Dr M Hall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Global change is predicted to result in both rapidly changing environments and dramatic changes in disease outbreaks. Key to predicting winners and losers under the nexus of infection and global change is any mismatch between hosts and pathogens in their thermal tolerances and adaptive potential.
  Exploring relationships between Wild house mouse ecology and immunology
  Prof J Bradley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding the causes of variability in the immune systems response underpins our knowledge of disease susceptibility, control of infectious diseases and ultimately, healthy aging.
