  Understanding resistance and tolerance to chytrid fungal disease in amphibians to improve conservation
  Dr L Grogan, Prof H McCallum
Applications accepted all year round
Wildlife are in peril. Chytridiomycosis (caused by aquatic fungal agent Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis) is the most devastating disease threat to biodiversity ever recorded.
  Characterising the faecal virome in Crohn’s disease patients with known NOD2 variants compared to matched controls without gastrointestinal disease (ref: SF18/APP/Bridge)
  Dr SH Bridge
Applications accepted all year round
The human virome includes viruses that infect host cells and viruses that infect bacteria, and impacts on health and disease independently of classical viral disease.
  Managing landscapes for conservation and human health: the role of deer and non-native hedgehogs in tick-borne disease emergence in the Western Isles
  Research Group: Institute of Biodiversity, Animal Health and Comparative Medicine
  Dr R Biek, Dr C Millins
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Changes in biological communities affecting disease emergence is a timely and vital research area.
  Examining the host-environmental interface of Histoplasma capsulatum to understand the implications of disease management within endemic populations.
  Dr C Scantlebury, Prof A J McCarthy, Dr T Helgason
Applications accepted all year round
Histoplasmosis is an endemic disease with serious consequences to equine and human health. This dimorphic fungus favours nitrogen rich environments, and generates highly resistant spores.
  Managing ash dieback disease using soil amendments including biochar
  Dr F Rayns, Dr K Dehnen-Schmutz
Application Deadline: 18 March 2019
Coventry University (CU) is inviting applications from suitably qualified graduates for a fully-funded PhD studentship. Ash dieback is an emerging disease that causes leaf loss and crown dieback in affected plants, often leading to tree death.
  Linking sex-specific adaptation to the evolution of infectious disease
  Dr M Hall
Applications accepted all year round
The science that guides our understanding of health and infectious disease routinely overlooks the pervading impact of sex.
  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
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.
  British mosquito ecology: investigating the role of ecological traits, invasion status, and environmental factors in determining the distribution and seasonality of insect vectors in the UK
  Prof A Callaghan
Applications accepted all year round
Mosquito-borne diseases cause substantial mortality and morbidity worldwide and are changing in distribution and impact due to globalisation and environmental change.
  Understanding cholera pandemics
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr D Grainger, Dr P A Lund
Applications accepted all year round
Vibrio cholerae is the causative agent of Cholera. Millions of cases of the disease occur every year and these are responsible for $3.1 billion dollar financial losses.
  Microverse Doctoral Researcher Project No: 09/2019The basis of resilience in the A. thaliana leaf microbiota
  Dr M Agler
Application Deadline: 20 March 2019
The Cluster of Excellence “Balance of the Microverse” of the Friedrich Schiller University Jena, Germany, combines expertise in life, material, optical and computational sciences to elevate microbiome studies from descriptive to hypothesis-driven and functional analyses.
