  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
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BACKGROUND & TIMELINESS. Naturally occurring diseases threaten ecosystem function, biodiversity, and humans (zoonotic infections).
  The Consequences of Transmission Heterogeneities for Disease Outbreaks
  Prof A Fenton, Prof M Viney
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

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., Ebola, pandemic influenza, chikungunya fever etc.).
  Epidemic modelling with online model assessment: value of information and conflict
  Dr A Presanis, Dr C Jackson, Dr D DeAngelis
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

For a fast-moving infectious disease such as influenza, whether seasonal or pandemic, or a newly emergent infectious disease, the ability to quickly evaluate the current spread of disease is crucial for understanding and forecasting the burden, particularly severe burden, on public health services such as GPs and hospitals.
  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).
  Evolutionary genomic analysis of rodent immune genes
  Prof S Paterson, Prof M Viney
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

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.
  Expanded potential stem cells for regenerative medicine, immunotherapy, and biotechnology
  Prof P Lui
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Embryonic stem cells (ES cells) and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS cells) are pluripotent and thus hold great promise in regenerative medicine, studying disease mechanisms and drug discovery.
  Host-pathogen interactions of the Cryptosporidium parasite
  Dr A Sateriale
Application Deadline: 12 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4-year PhD studentship is offered in Dr Adam Sateriale’s Group based at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick). Cryptosporidium, or ‘crypto’, is an intracellular parasite that causes a severe diarrhoeal disease known as cryptosporidiosis.
  The role of pore-forming bacterial proteins in pneumonia and meningitis
  Prof T J Mitchell, Dr M Tomlinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The bacterium Streptococcus pneumoniae (the pneumococcus) is carried in the nasopharynx of most children and some adults without causing disease.
