  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.
  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.
  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”.
  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.
  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.
  MRC DTP 4 Year PhD Programme: AI-Spot-Dementia (AISDA): developing machine learning algorithms to predict the risk of dementia for patients with Type 2 Diabetes
  Dr J Zhang, Prof D Steele, Dr A Doney, Prof E Trucco
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
The aim of this PhD proposal is to develop novel machine learning algorithms (e.g., deep learning) to predict the risk of dementia in Type 2 diabetes, and detect early signs of such disease with association of clinical and genomic data in clinical settings.
  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.
  Development of novel transgenic fluorescent biosensor bivalves (oyster and mussel) for detecting oxidative stress - PhD (Funded)
  Dr T Kudoh, Prof C R Tyler
Application Deadline: 30 January 2019
Supervisors. Dr Tetsu Kudoh, University of Exeter. Professor Charles Tyler, University of Exeter. Dr Tim Bean, Centre for Environment, Fisheries & Aquaculture Science.
