  How do disease vector populations respond to climate change? NERC GW4+ DTP
  Dr S English, Dr J Bridle
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
One of the major concerns about climate change is how it will influence future distribution of important disease vectors. Such effects are likely to be significant – insects are highly sensitive to temperature for vital rates – yet difficult to predict or to generalise across species.
  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.
  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).
  Are ticks a potential vector for Borna disease virus?
  Prof S Tasker
Applications accepted all year round
Background. Borna disease virus (BDV) has a broad host range including cats and dogs. In cats BDV causes a non-suppurative. meningoencephalomyelitis called “staggering disease”.
  Bug-beats: using wing beat patterns for automated detection of mosquitoes
  Prof J Logan, Prof R Bomphrey
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Mosquito-borne diseases are a major challenge for human health, affecting 700 million people every year and resulting in over one million deaths.
  Development of Gene Therapy and Gene Editing for Lung Disorders: the translation of new gene therapies to the clinic, including the development of new vectors, and evaluation in animal models of disease.
  Dr D Gill, Dr S Hyde
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
The Gene Medicine Research Group is based in the John Radcliffe Hospital and is focused on the development of new gene therapeutics for lung diesases.
  The molecular biology of back pain: identifying determinants of spine health amenable for therapeutic intervention
  Prof G Bou-Gharios
Applications accepted all year round
The Institute of Ageing and Chronic Disease is part of the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences. We excel in high quality research that contributes to improved health and quality of life for older people and animals and alleviates chronic diseases at all ages.
  The development of new peptide and peptoid based treatments for Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs)
  Dr SL Cobb
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) are a significant global health burden, affecting approximately one-sixth of the world’s population.
  Understanding signalling networks during malaria parasite infection and transmission
  Research Group: Institute of Immunology & Infection Research
  Dr N Philip
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
Malaria threatens around 400 million people globally and results in over 0.5 million deaths annually, thereby continuing to be a major public health problem.
  PhD in Infection & Immunity - Understanding immune stimulation of novel viral vaccine vectors
  Dr R Stanton, Dr E Wang
Application Deadline: 27 February 2019
Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) is an exciting viral vaccine vector, that can protect against HIV and cancer in animal models. However it is also a pathogen that causes significant disease and death on a worldwide level, mainly in transplant recipients and unborn babies.
