Puffinosis: a 112 year old mysterious and deadly disease of Manx shearwaters

Seabirds are experiencing widespread decline; 28% of species are considered globally threatened. Mass mortality events in seabird colonies in 2021 and 2022 due to (H5N1) Avian Influenza have highlighted how crucial monitoring of wildlife diseases is to the conservation of already threatened species.

Understanding drivers of disease in the red squirrel (Sciurus vulgaris), a threatened UK native species

The red squirrel (Sciurus vulgaris) is an iconic species of notable conservation concern in the UK, having suffered a marked range contraction over the last century due to habitat loss, and competition and pathogen transmission from the introduced grey squirrel (S. Read more

The impact of resources on parasite transmission in wildlife communities

Habitat modification has profound effects on ecosystems, altering the quantity and distribution of resources in the environment. One overlooked way that changes in environmental resources impact biodiversity is through effects on the parasites circulating within those communities. Read more

Wildlife disease

  Research Group: Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership (MIBTP)
Mathematical and statistical models are important tools in wildlife biology. For wildlife disease, they are particularly useful in evaluating vaccination or population management strategies in endangered species (e.g. Read more

It’s about time: the evolution and ecology of circadian rhythms in infectious disease

  Research Group: Institute of Ecology & Evolution
Biological rhythms appear to be an elegant solution to the challenge of coordinating activities with the consequences of the Earth’s daily and seasonal rotation. Read more

NERC E4 Evolutionary ecology of parasite-vector interactions: malaria-mosquito interactions

  Research Group: Institute of Ecology & Evolution
Interested individuals must follow the "how to apply" link on the Geosciences E4 Doctoral Training Partnership web page. http://www.ed.ac.uk/e4-dtp/how-to-apply. Read more

Evolutionary ecology of parasite- vector interactions: malaria- mosquito interactions

  Research Group: Institute of Ecology & Evolution
Parasites live in the bodies of others – with whom they are engaged in a life-and-death struggle – yet, how parasites cope with the challenges of their lifestyle is remarkably poorly understood. Read more

Evolutionary ecology of host-parasite interactions

Proposed Start Date. September 2022. The body is home to trillions of microbes. There has been a surge of interest on the effects of these microbes on host health, often as agents of infectious disease. Read more

The microbiome of the beehive as an indicator of honeybee pathogens (Ref FHMS - DTP - 06 BIO)

Infectious diseases affecting bees pose a serious threat to both biodiversity and food security. Many honeybee pathogens are shared by other wild bee species and crops are experiencing considerable yield gaps owing to insufficient pollination. Read more

NERC E4 The causes and consequences of heterogeneity in parasite infection and transmission potential

  Research Group: Institute of Ecology & Evolution
Interested individuals must follow the "how to apply" link on the Geosciences E4 Doctoral Training Partnership web page. http://www.ed.ac.uk/e4-dtp/how-to-apply. Read more

Immune system diversity and evolution in natural populations

You will investigate how immune systems evolve. Immune systems are highly sophisticated networks encoded by hundreds of genes. They show a lot of variation both between individuals and between species, and this variability has consequences for how organisms are able to resist infection in the wild. Read more

Wellcome Trust funded four-year PhD programme in Hosts, Pathogens and Global Health at the University of Edinburgh

The School of Biological Sciences, in partnership with Edinburgh Infectious Diseases, is delighted to open applications to the eighth cohort of students on this Wellcome Trust funded four-year PhD programme. Read more
