  Healthy building design for controlling infectious disease transmission in developing countries
  Dr Z Luo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Infectious disease pandemics are brutal killers in human history. The recent COVID-19 outbreak in China has killed over 2.4K people globally, and more than 78K people are infected across 28 countries (As of 22th Feb 2020).
  Male-female differences the evolution of infectious disease
  Dr M Hall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The science that guides our understanding of health and infectious disease routinely overlooks the pervading impact of sex.
  PhD in Engineering - Remote Imaging for Infectious Disease Diagnosis
  Prof J Cooper, Prof D Faccio, Dr J Reboud
Application Deadline: 1 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Professors Cooper and Faccio have a collaborative research programme on the use of quantum sensor technology and quantum-inspired imaging, combined with artificial intelligence (AI), to provide new sensors systems for future “intelligent homes”.
  The Consequences of Transmission Heterogeneities for Disease Outbreaks
  Prof A Fenton, Prof M Viney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There are ever-increasing concerns about the threat of emerging infectious diseases, in both wildlife (e.g., rabies, chytridiomycosis in amphibians, white nose syndrome in bats etc.) and humans (e.g., covid-19, Ebola, pandemic influenza, etc.).
  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.
  Infectious disease and adaptation to global change
  Dr M Hall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Global change is predicted to result in both rapidly changing environments and dramatic changes in disease outbreaks. Key to predicting winners and losers under the nexus of infection and global change is any mismatch between hosts and pathogens in their thermal tolerances and adaptive potential.
  Modelling the spread and control of livestock and zoonotic infectious diseases
  Assoc Prof M Tildesley, Dr E Gorsich, Prof M Keeling
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mathematical models are extensively used in both public-health and veterinary-health policy planning. Modern predictive models are now at the heart of policy decisions, and such models are having an increasing role in supporting decisions associated with livestock infections.
  The effect of air pollution on the behaviour of bacteria
  Dr J Morrissey, Prof J Ketley, Prof P W Andrew, Prof P Monks
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is at the cutting edge of investigations of the increase in infection resulting from airborne pollution. 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, 2017).
  Defining Mycobacterium tuberculosis in lung tissue – a novel discovery platform for new vaccine and drug targets
  Dr S Waddell, Dr J Salguero, Dr S Sharpe, Dr A Rawkins
Application Deadline: 29 June 2020

Funding Type

  Dr T Sharpe
Application Deadline: 29 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The lab of Thom Sharp is looking for a PhD candidate for research on developing a new class of immunotherapeutic to treat infectious diseases and cancer.
  Urban health inequalities from Victorian times to the present day: socioeconomic conditions, social interactions and economic fluctuations
  Dr R Mancy
Application Deadline: 15 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Glasgow is known for its extreme health inequalities, but what is the origin of these and how far back do they go? How have they been affected by big ‘shocks’…
  The effect of air pollution on the interaction between bacteria and bacteriophage
  Dr J Morrissey, Prof M Clokie, Dr A Millard
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

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, 2017).
