  Learning from the past to predict and reduce the risk of infectious disease pandemics
  Dr F Perez-Reche, Prof N Strachan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The World Health Organisation reports that infectious diseases cause 63% of childhood deaths and 48% of premature deaths. There is the ongoing risk of epidemics and pandemics that can cause widespread morbidity and mortality (Spanish flu, ebola, SARS, E.
  Modelling the deformation of cells
  Dr F Perez-Reche
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cells are the elementary building blocks of living organisms. The correct functioning of living organisms is therefore conditioned to the ability of living cells to withstand forces and deformations and to promptly adapt to their mechanical environment.
  Disease control and conservation: applying grazing pressure to solve ’The World’s Worst Wildlife Infectious Disease’
  Dr D J S Montagnes, Prof A Fenton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

BACKGROUND & TIMELINESS. Infectious diseases threaten ecosystem function, biodiversity, and humans through zoonotic infections. Water-borne diseases, in particular, are predicted to increase through anthropogenic factors, including climate-change.
  Common severe childhood infections, innate inflammatory responses and cardiometabolic risk: The VASCular changes aFter INfectious Diseases (VASCFIND) study
  Prof D Burgner, Dr S Bekkering
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

SUMMARY. Infection, the commonest reason for childhood hospital admission, is a major driver of inflammation and is associated with cardiometabolic risk and disease.
  Investigating the chemistry of antioxidants and polysaccharides present in date-fruit (Phoenix dactylifera) as a novel/potential therapies for neoplastic and infectious diseases.
  Dr H Morgan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Date-fruit contains vast amount of phenols; approx. 80400µmol/100g, which portray antioxidant abilities.
  The impact of air pollution on bacteria colonisation and virulence.
  Dr J Morrissey, Prof J Ketley, Prof P W Andrew
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Air pollution is the world’s largest single environmental health risk, being responsible for an eighth of all global deaths per year (World Health Organisation, 2014).
  Cryo-electron tomography of HIV-1 assembly and maturation
  Dr J Briggs
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Retroviruses are enveloped RNA viruses, whose assembly is largely driven by the viral Gag polyprotein. Gag recruits other virion components and targets them to the viral assembly site.
  Evaluation of natural plant based botanicals as alternative to therapeutic antibiotics
  Dr C Situ
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

It has become widely recognised that antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the biggest health threats that mankind faces encompassing huge health and economic burdens on governments and societies in every region of the globe.
  Evolutionary genomic analysis of rodent immune genes
  Prof S Paterson, Prof M Viney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

You will investigate how immune systems evolve. Immune systems are highly sophisticated networks encoded by hundreds of genes. One way to understand how these networks function is to compare them between related species, to see which genes are common between them and which are unique.
  Effect of the prebiotic Galacto-oligosaccharide on the young pig
  Dr K Mellits
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Physiological, environmental, and social stressors at weaning lead to production/health problems in commercial pigs such as infectious and non-infectious diarrhoea and lack of feed intake.
