  Iron and Immunity: studying how iron and anaemia influence immunity and infectious diseases
  Prof A Drakesmith, Dr S Draper
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
We study how iron and anaemia influence immunity and infectious diseases. Our research inspires therapies that control iron physiology to improve immunity, combat infections and treat disorders of iron metabolism.
  Immune-mediated control of epithelial integrity: Does the immune response to influenza infection cause long-term changes in lung function?
  Dr G Perona-Wright, Dr L Yrlid
Application Deadline: 21 March 2019
Surviving influenza infection requires a careful balance between factors that promote immunity and eradicate the virus and factors that limit the immune response and minimise damage to the lung epithelium.
  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.
  Nutritional Immunity in Drosophila - identifying the underlying nutrient-sensing control of host immune regulators and investigating how altered nutrients affect pathogen prosperity
  Dr M Piper, Dr L Wakeling
Applications accepted all year round
PhD Student Position. Nutritional Immunity in Drosophila. Monash University, Australia and Newcastle University, UK.
  Immune control of parasitic infection: Defining the role of gel-forming mucins in protection against gastrointestinal nematodes
  Prof D Thornton, Prof R K Grencis
Applications accepted all year round
Infection by gastrointestinal parasites (GI) is one of the most common types of parasitic infection in man and animals worldwide.
  Immune Development in a Piglet Model of Environmental Enteric Dysfunction
  Dr M Lewis, Prof G Gibson
Applications accepted all year round
Summary. Environmental enteric dysfunction (EED) affects 200 million children in low- and middle-income countries and has extremely detrimental consequences for long-term health.
  Functional analysis of fungal effector proteins in the barley/wheat powdery mildew plant-pathogen interactions.
  Dr L Bindschedler, Prof A Devoto
Applications accepted all year round
Pathogens secrete small proteins called effectors or virulence factors which are important for the successful invasion of the host.
  Suppression of extracellular host hydrolases by a plant pathogen
  Prof R Van der Hoorn
Applications accepted all year round
The extracellular space in leaves (the apoplast) is an important battlefield for plant-pathogen interactions. Plants defend this space by the (induced) secretion of hydrolytic enzymes.
  Genotype-to-structure: analysis of the glycosylation of the flagella of Campylobacter jejuni, a major cause of food-borne gastroenteritis
  Dr C D Bayliss, Prof J Ketley
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
Campylobacter jejuni is the major causative agent of foodborne gastroenteritis across Europe. Contaminated chicken meat is the main source of infections and hence control of this pathogen is critical to food security in the poultry industry.
  Characterising Clostridium difficile defence strategies against bacteriophages
  Prof M Clokie, Dr A Millard
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
Healthcare associated infections are a major problem for patients and a global health challenge. Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) is particularly problematic, for example the UK has ~20,000 infectious diarrhoeal cases every year, and progressive complications can lead to death in ~3% of infected patients.
