  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
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.
  Linking sex-specific adaptation to the evolution of infectious disease
  Dr M Hall
Applications accepted all year round
The science that guides our understanding of health and infectious disease routinely overlooks the pervading impact of sex.
  Modelling the deformation of cells
  Dr F Perez-Reche
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Modelling behavioural changes induced by infectious disease via physical activity trackers
  Dr N Perra, Dr L Zhou
Application Deadline: 12 April 2019
Supervisors; Dr Nicola Perra, Dr Li Zhou, Dr Luis E Rocha, Dr Vittoria Colizza. The project aims to characterise behavioural changes induced by seasonal influenza on mobility patterns and physiological indicators.
  Assessment of zoonotic risk in xenotransplantation: using big data epidemiology to establish risk in pig donors and human recipients.
  Dr M McIntyre, Dr H Clough
Application Deadline: 22 April 2019
This paper-based (dry) project supports development of safe regenerative medicine methods which impact treatment of unmet clinical needs causing some of societies’ greatest health challenges including type1 diabetes, and end-stage organ failure (kidney/heart/liver).
  Characterizing cell cycle regulatory factors for Plasmodium falciparum.
  Dr I Russo
Application Deadline: 23 April 2019
We are looking to recruit a Ph.D. student with a relevant biomedical science or biology background to join our research group at Keele University.
  How is fate determined during T cell development, leukemogenesis and responses?
  Dr S. Russell
Applications accepted all year round
Understanding how cell fate programming works will lead to improved diagnostic and therapeutic opportunities for leukemia, and to improved immunotherapies for cancer and infectious disease.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Understanding the mechanisms of HIV-1 infection using mathematical modelling and phylogenetics
  Dr K Atkins, Prof J Albert, Dr S Hué, Dr A Best
Application Deadline: 8 April 2019
Background. If HIV-1 infection is left untreated the viral load of chronically infected individuals can rise to million copies per millilitre of blood with hundreds of genetic variants.
  Inter-species transmission of Mycobacterium Avium Paratuberculosis (MAP) sheep and beef cattle farming systems – understanding risk factors and impact on livestock productivity.
  Dr P Davies, Prof N Williams
Application Deadline: 15 April 2019
A fantastic opportunity for a self-motivated person to be at the forefront of researching an emerging ‘iceberg’ animal disease of sheep and cattle.
  Host-Microbe Interactions in Ventilator-Associated Pneumonia
  Dr J Latimer, Dr I Goodhead, Dr S Withers
Applications accepted all year round
This project will investigate the role of commensal and pathogenic microorganisms in the aetiology progression, diagnosis and antimicrobial therapy of ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) in intensive care patients.
