  Trait-based approaches for predicting mosquito distributions under environmental change
  Dr B Purse, Prof A Callaghan, Dr S White, Dr W Wint
Application Deadline: 16 January 2019
Mosquito-borne diseases cause substantial mortality and morbidity worldwide and are changing in distribution and impact due to globalisation and environmental change.
  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.
  Immune and physiological determinants of host heterogeneity in pathogen shedding and spreading
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr P Vale, Dr A Pedersen
Application Deadline: 13 December 2018
Individuals vary tremendously in their propensity to transmit infections. Such host heterogeneity – most striking in the case of super-spreading and super-shedding individuals - makes it difficult to predict, manage, and curtail epidemics.
  Is biodiversity good for your health? Birds as bioindicators of Lyme disease risk in the environment.
  Dr B Tschirren, Dr S Perkins
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Location. University of Exeter, Penryn Campus, Penryn, Cornwall TR10 9FE. This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  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.
  Mitigating the effects of climate change, emerging disease and invasive species on native amphibian populations in the UK (PUSCHENDORFP19ARIES)
  Dr R Puschendorf
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Project description. Amphibians are the most threatened group of vertebrates, with global declines driven by and associated with emerging infectious disease, invasive species and climate change (North et al.
  Modelling disease spread through populations of territorial animals and the effect of culling
  Dr J Potts, Dr A Best
Application Deadline: 31 December 2018
The culling of animals in an attempt to slow or halt disease spread is a controversial method, yet frequently adopted by government agencies in the UK and beyond.
  Invasive infectious disease, climate change and amphibian conservation: current and future threats to Sardinian amphibian biodiversity
  Dr T Garner, Prof R. Griffiths
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Supervisors. Prof Trent Garner (Institute of Zoology). Prof Richard Griffiths (University of Kent, Durrell Institute of Conservation and Ecology).
  Invasive bees, invasive disease. The ecology and evolution of parasites associated with bumblebees in South America, Japan, and Europe
  Dr S Barribeau, Prof S Paterson
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Bumblebees are crucial pollinators in both wild and agricultural systems. Bumblebees are also facing widespread declines, in part due to infectious diseases, which challenges the stability of wild floral communities, and the animals that depend on them, and food security.
  Utilizing community ecology to examine the role of environmental niches of Histoplasma capsulatum to better understand host-environment dynamics
  Dr C Scantlebury, Prof A J McCarthy, Dr T Helgason
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
In this project we seek to. Identify environmental niches of Histoplasma in households and within communal gathering points in endemic regions, namely Ethiopia and The Gambia.
