  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”.
  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.
  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.).
  BBSRC industrial CASE PhD studentship - context specific mapping of genetic variants to function (PhD Medicine)
  Dr J Lee, Dr N Nakic
Application Deadline: 5 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Cambridge, in partnership with GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), seeks a talented and enthusiastic PhD student for a 4-year full-time BBSRC Collaborative Training Partnership studentship.
  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.
  Expanded potential stem cells for regenerative medicine, immunotherapy, and biotechnology
  Prof P Liu
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.
  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).
  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.
  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’…
  Determining the epidemiology and molecular evolution of antimicrobial drug resistance in Cape Verde
  Dr S Beleza, Prof MR Oggioni
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cape Verde is an archipelago located 450 km off the coast of Senegal, that was found uninhabited by the Portuguese in the mid-15th century.
  Examining Histoplasmosis in household and community environments at the human-animal interface

Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Little is known about the current prevalence or transmission of Histoplasmosis despite its persistence in Sub-Saharan Africa, representing a public health blind spot (Oladele et al., 2018).
  Developing a virus-like particle (VLP) Polio vaccine
  Dr G Mulley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Rationale. Poliovirus is a non-enveloped RNA virus, spread via the faecal-oral route, that causes the infectious disease Poliomyelitis (Polio).
  Low-cost paper-based sensors for rapid monitoring of water quality PhD
  Dr Z Yang, Dr F Coulon, Dr F Hassard
Application Deadline: 16 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microbiological contamination of water used for human consumption presents high risks to human health, and it occurs throughout low- and middle-income countries (LMICs).
