  Nucleic Acid Sensing: Investigating the molecular biology of activation and regulation of innate immune receptors that survey the cytosol, using a variety of virus infection models including influenza A virus, HIV and other retroviruses, flaviviruses such as Zika virus, and herpes viruses.
  Prof J Rehwinkel
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
Investigating the molecular biology of activation and regulation of innate immune receptors that survey the cytosol, using a variety of virus infection models including influenza A virus, HIV and other retroviruses, flaviviruses such as Zika virus, and herpes viruses.
  Hannover Biomedical Research School
Hannover Biomedical Research School, as part of Hannover Medical School (MHH), invites applications for the above PhD studentships, to commence in October 2019.
  Systemic infection of bean by the halo blight pathogen Pseudomonas syringae pv. phaseolicola
  Prof G Preston
Applications accepted all year round
BACKGROUND. Beans provide one of the most important staple sources of dietary protein in many parts of Africa and worldwide, and are an important part of the horticultural export market.
  Deciphering Aspergillus fumigatus - Pseudomonas aeruginosa synergistic interactions in coinfection
  Dr J Amich, Prof E Bignell, Dr S Fowler
Applications accepted all year round
Pathogen-pathogen interactions in polymicrobial infections are known to directly impact, often to worsen, disease outcomes. Aspergillus fumigatus is the most common fungal pathogen and Pseudomonas aeruginosa one of the most prevalent bacterial pathogens of the human lung.
  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.
  Designing of novel biosensors using synthetic biology approaches
  Dr S Heeb
Applications accepted all year round
Infectious diseases are still a major cause of death, disability and social and economic upheaval accounting for more than 11.9 million deaths a year worldwide.
  Mathematical modelling of immune cell host-pathogen interactions
  Dr P Paszek, Dr M Muldoon, Prof I Roberts
Applications accepted all year round
Mammals have central cellular defence systems that resist infection by a range of pathogens. These involve the NF-κB and STAT signalling systems, which we have shown to use dynamics and timing to encode pathogen-associated signals.
  Investigating novel treatments for sepsis by understanding the pathogenesis of invasive infection
  Prof M Oggioni, Dr C D Bayliss
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
We have recently discovered that bacteria, previously considered extracellular pathogens replicate within a subset of macrophages before causing invasive infection (Ercoli et al., Nature Microbiology 2018).
  How does nutritional status affect plant immunity and disease? (Ref: CTPFCR20193)
  Dr R Harrison
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
This student is to be registered with University of Reading and will be mainly based at NIAB EMR, Kent. The team of supervisors will be led by Dr Richard Harrison of NIAB EMR.
  Molecular mechanisms of herpesviral infection
  Dr A Golovanov
Applications accepted all year round
Herpes viruses are known to cause a wide range of human diseases, ranging from simple cold sores to cancer, Kaposi Sarcoma. Kaposi Sarcoma, for example, is a type of cancer which affects immunocompromised patients and is endemic in Africa, where it is linked with the spread of HIV infection and AIDS.
