  Evolution of Influenza Viruses - prediction of possible future antigenic variants
  Prof D Smith
Application Deadline: 2 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Evolution of Influenza Viruses. Centre for Pathogen Evolution. Department of Zoology. University of Cambridge. Project summary. Our research focus is to design and develop analytical, computational, and mathematical methods to understand the fundamental processes that govern the evolution of influenza viruses.
  Molecular mechanisms of influenza virus replication
  Prof E Fodor
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Influenza viruses are important human and animal pathogens; they cause widespread clinical and veterinary disease and have a considerable economic impact.
  Understanding influenza-induced long-term changes to lung immunity
  Dr A Wack
Application Deadline: 12 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4-year PhD studentship is offered in Dr Andreas Wack’s Group based at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick). The Wack lab is interested in influenza virus infection, a disease of major public health impact whose severity ranges from mild cold-like symptoms to necessity of hospitalisation and death.
  Novel autophagy pathways for the control of influenza virus infection (WILEMANQ20DTP)
  Prof T Wileman
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The recent outbreaks of avian influenza and the threat of a human influenza pandemic has highlighted the need to understand prevention and control of this virus by developing effective antiviral therapies.
  Imaging viruses and cells by electron cryomicroscopy (cryoEM)
  Dr P Rosenthal
Application Deadline: 12 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4-year PhD studentship is offered in Dr Peter Rosenthal’s Group based at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick). Our group studies the architecture of large protein assemblies in order to understand basic molecular mechanisms that control protein and membrane traffic in the cell and in virus infection.
  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 neutrophil response to viruses
  Dr B Amulic, Dr Y Yamauchi
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project. Neutrophils are abundant immune cells that are essential for defence against pathogens. They combat microbes by phagocytosis, degranulation and release of neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs).
  Development of a single NGS pipeline using a novel universal virus enrichment panel for the detection and typing of viral pathogens.
  Prof L Scobie, Dr R Gunson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project reference number. SHLS19001. Current routine virology diagnostics rely upon serological methods and novel molecular methods such as real time PCR.
  The structural basis of viral transport by dynein/dynactin.
  Dr A Carter
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Viruses are too large to move inside cells unless they hijack cytoskeletal motors such as the microtubule motor dynein. Remarkably dynein is co-opted by all classes of virus.
  Mucosal Vaccines - using Bacillus subtilis spores to develop vaccines and adjuvants against disease
  Prof S Cutting
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Heat stable bacterial spores are being used as novel mucosal vaccines. Spores of Bacillus subtilis have been used successfully as both vaccines and adjuvants against a number of diseases.
