Last chance to apply

Portable point-of-care diagnostic testing platform for emerging & Communicable Infectious Disease

Applications are invited from suitably qualified candidates to join the RAPID Institute (Research Advances in Personalised Integrated Diagnostics) Research Group in DCU. Read more

Four Year PhD Programme in Epidemiology, Evolution and Control of Infectious Diseases

Application Deadline: 15 July 2024
Fully funded studentships available for entry in October 2024. This 4-year PhD training programme provides unique inter-disciplinary training in infectious disease epidemiology, mathematical modelling and statistics, genetics and evolution, and computational methods. Read more

Optimizing phage-antibiotic-synergies to kill bacterial pathogens

Phage therapy, the use of viruses that only infect bacterial cells and kill them, is a promising potential solution to the antimicrobial resistance crisis that is threatening modern medicine1. Read more

Vaccine development for important spirochaetal diseases of cattle.

*Bovine digital dermatitis (DD) is a severe, infectious, foot skin disease affecting cattle worldwide. This disease causes severe pain resulting in ruminant lameness and impacts animal welfare. Read more

Selective targeting of furin for the treatment of fibrotic lung disease.

Furin, a proprotein convertase has been established as a therapeutic target across several disease areas to include chronic airways diseases and infectious disease, such as COVID-19 (reviewed in our recent publication, Douglas et al, 2023). Read more

PhD Studentship in Modelling and Inference for Mosquito-Borne Disease Elimination

Applications are invited for one PhD position in “Modelling and Inference for Mosquito-Borne Disease Elimination” at the Department of Statistics, University of Warwick. Read more

Bacterial pathobiont and commensal colonisation in the human respiratory tract

Bacterial colonisation of the human upper respiratory tract (URT) is a pre-requisite for multiple diseases including pneumonia, otitis media, sinusitis, exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and, less commonly, diseases resulting from bacteraemia such as meningitis. Read more

Investigating mechanisms of chromosome segregation during the exit of male Plasmodium gametes.

PhD student wanted for the next possible date at the Center for Infectious Diseases for the Parasitology department. Malaria is a devastating infectious disease that kills more than half a million people per year. Read more

Exploring mechanisms underlying viral infections in initiating pulmonary fibrosis

Respiratory viral infections are the most prevalent illnesses in humans. In addition to their immediate health effects, these infections can result in long-term lung conditions like pulmonary fibrosis and worsen existing chronic lung diseases. Read more

Novel Immunotherapies and Vaccines for Virus Control

This is a Self-Funded/Sponsored PhD opportunity. FUNDING REQUIRED. Full UK/EU or International Tuition Fees. UK Living Expenses. Bench Fees (£68,500 total). Read more

Discovery and functional investigation of the shared molecular mechanisms of host immunoregulation by the pathogens that cause malaria and sepsis.

Infectious diseases cause enormous humanitarian and economic burdens worldwide. Designing interventions that prevent, cure, or control many infections is difficult because pathogens have evolved sophisticated ways of subverting host immunity. Read more

Epigenomics as the next step in molecular diagnostics

Applications are invited from suitably qualified candidates to join the RAPID Institute (Research Advances in Personalised Integrated Diagnostics) Research Group in DCU. Read more

Statistical inference for epidemics models

Mathematical models have been established as an important tool for capturing the features that drive the spread of a disease, predicting the progression of an epidemic and guiding the development of effective control strategies to prevent potential outbreaks. Read more
