  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.
  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: 26 July 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.
  Bluetongue virus exploits transkingdom interactions between virus-bacteria-insect and ruminant host to enhance infection
  Dr Karin Darpel, Prof J Hope
Application Deadline: 5 April 2019
Increasing evidence demonstrates that certain viruses can exploit bacteria or bacterial products to enhance their infectivity, replication and transmission.
  PhD in Dementia Research - Machine Learning for prediction in Alzheimer’s Disease: Identifying novel biologically valid diagnostic categories to inform precision medicine
  Prof V Escott-Price
Application Deadline: 8 April 2019
Employing machine learning (ML) algorithms is a promising way of exploring the complex architecture of big data in genetics. Several methods exist for solving classification problems like case-control and outcome groups in ML.
  What drives outbreaks of midge-borne viruses in the UK?
  Dr C Sanders, Prof M Baylis
Application Deadline: 5 April 2019
In recent years, viruses transmitted by biting midges have become increasingly important to livestock farming in the UK. Thousands of these tiny flies are present on farms across the UK and incursions of bluetongue virus and Schmallenberg virus have a significant economic impact on animal production.
  Development of gene therapies for muscular dystrophies
  Dr L Popplewell
Applications accepted all year round
The activities in the Popplewell lab focus on the development of pre-clinical gene therapies for neuromuscular diseases, in particular muscular dystrophies based on gene replacement, endonuclease-mediated gene editing, antisense oligonucleotide (AO)-induced exon skipping and gene sliencing.
  Ph.D. position in geocomputational and mathematical modeling of diseases
  Prof E Michael
Application Deadline: 1 April 2019
Project Description. We are currently looking for a PhD student interested in applying mathematics, biostatistics, machine learning and geocomputation science to modelling disease transmission systems.
  Developing germline transgenesis methods in snails
  Dr A Davison, Dr W R A Brown
Applications accepted all year round
Slugs as pests destroy and spoil crop plants and cost the farming industry at least £100M a year in the UK, incurring the widespread use of toxic molluscicides.
  Airway, Liver and Muscle Gene Transfer to Create Therapeutic Protein Factories: utilising experience of in vivo gene transfer and/or in vivo gene editing to understand and manipulate the factors required for effective expression and secretion of therapeutic proteins
  Dr S Hyde, Dr D Gill
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
We are focusing on strategies to deliver therapeutics via in vivo delivery of gene transfer vectors to generate ectopic “protein factories” capable of secreting therapeutic proteins into both the lung lumen and the systemic circulation.
