  Structure based design of angiotensin-converting enzyme (from Anopheles gambiae) inhibitors as mosquitocides
  Prof K R Acharya
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The mosquitoes of the Anopheles and Aedes genus are some of the most deadly insects to humans because of their effectiveness as vectors of malaria and a range of arboviruses, including yellow fever, dengue, chikungunya, West Nile and zika.
  How regulatory immunological cues (re)programme cellular metabolism to control effector T cell behaviour and function
  Dr K Couper, Prof R K Grencis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Upon activation a T cell transitions from a state of semi-quiescence to a state of high activity. During the process of activation the T cell therefore needs to up regulate metabolic pathways to acquire the energy and nutrients required to facilitate the behavioural changes associated with its new functional state.
  Defining Mycobacterium tuberculosis in lung tissue – a novel discovery platform for new vaccine and drug targets
  Dr S Waddell, Dr J Salguero, Dr S Sharpe, Dr A Rawkins
Application Deadline: 29 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a 3-year PhD studentship to join our tuberculosis research group in the Department of Global Health and Infection at Brighton and Sussex Medical School (BSMS).
  Master by Research: Gregarine apicomplexan parasites in freshwater invertebrates
  Dr S Rueckert, Dr J Dodd
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

PROJECT DESCRIPTION. Gregarine apicomplexans are micro-eukaryotic parasites that are found in almost every group of terrestrial, freshwater and marine invertebrates (Leander 2008; Desportes & Schrével 2013).
  Fungal Informatics
  Dr A Barber
Application Deadline: 25 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Leibniz Institute for Natural Product Research and Infection Biology – Hans Knöll Institute (Leibniz-HKI, www.leibniz-hki.de) investigates the pathobiology of human-pathogenic fungi and identifies targets for the development of novel natural product-based antibiotics.
  Pharmaceutical Materials
  Dr A Erxleben
Application Deadline: 1 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully funded PhD position( €18,500 per annum stipend plus €5,500 tuition fee)s in the pharmaceutical and medicinal chemistry group led by Dr Andrea Erxleben at the National University of Ireland, Galway.
  Peptide hydrogels as a long-acting multipurpose drug delivery platform for combined contraception and HIV prevention
  Dr G Laverty, Prof K Malcolm
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

HIV/AIDS is the leading cause of death in women of reproductive age worldwide. HIV and unintended pregnancies are prevalent in developing nations due to the lack of effective female contraceptive choice.
  Environmental control of dendritic cell activation and function during pulmonary type 2 inflammation
  Prof A MacDonald, Prof J Allen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Type 2 inflammation is a defining feature of infection with parasitic worms (helminths), as well as being responsible for widespread suffering in allergies.
  Nucleic acid aptamers for diagnostics, therapeutics and DNA nanotechnology
  Prof J Tanner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nucleic acid aptamers can be evolved to bind specifically to molecules and have particular functions in a range of applications. They are also wonderful tools as adaptors and functional units in DNA nanotechnology.
  Iron Biology
  Prof H Drakesmith, Dr O Bannard
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We study how iron and anaemia influence immunity and infectious diseases. Our research inspires therapies that control iron physiology to improve immunity, combat infections and treat disorders of iron metabolism.
  Development and Maturation of B cell Mediated Immune Responses
  Dr O Bannard
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We study the cellular interactions and molecular events that lead to the development of high affinity and protective antibodies during humoral immune responses.
  Iron Biology
  Prof H Drakesmith, Dr O Bannard
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We study how iron and anaemia influence immunity and infectious diseases. Our research inspires therapies that control iron physiology to improve immunity, combat infections and treat disorders of iron metabolism.
  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).
  A multidisciplinary approach to elucidate how TB obtains and uses essential energy sources
  Dr E Fullam, Dr A Cameron, Prof I Gibson
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tuberculosis (TB) is a major global health challenge. TB is now the leading cause of death from a single infectious agent worldwide killing more people than HIV and malaria combined.
  Developing new antibody-based therapeutics for neuroblastoma
  Prof A Sala
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Metastatic neuroblastoma is a cancer of the nervous system that kills the majority of the affected children. Although there have been tremendous advances in the understanding of the molecular causes of the disease, patients are still treated with highly toxic mixtures of chemicals and radiation.
