  Understanding signalling networks during malaria parasite infection and transmission
  Research Group: Institute of Immunology & Infection Research
  Dr N Philip
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
Malaria threatens around 400 million people globally and results in over 0.5 million deaths annually, thereby continuing to be a major public health problem.
  Unravelling molecular mechanism of atypical cell division in malaria parasite towards identifying novel intervention strategies
  Dr R Tewari
Applications accepted all year round
Plasmodium, the causative agent of malaria, is the most fatal of vector borne protozoan parasites transmitted by infected female mosquitoes.
  Stochastic models for increments of EEG recordings using heavy-tailed and fractional diffusions
  Prof N Leonenko, Dr B Gauthier
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
The goal of this project is to build new stochastic models for the EEG data using stochastic processes, namely heavy-tailed diffusion and fractional diffusion.
  Engineering: College of Engineering Centenary Scholarship: Multiscale meshfree modelling of the biorheological behaviour of healthy and diseased red blood cells
  Dr A S Ademiloye
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Subject areas. Engineering, Computational Mechanics and Biomechanics. Start date. April 2019. Project description. Red blood cells (RBCs) are fundamentally important component of human blood due to their unique connection with human health.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Determination of how killer pathogenic fungi evade human innate immune defences
  Prof J Quinn, Dr S Johnston
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
More people die from fungal infections than from malaria, tuberculosis, or ‘superbugs’ such as MRSA. Candida species are an important group of human fungal pathogens causing over 400,000 life threatening infections per year.
  One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish: biotic interactions of native and invasive mosquitofish with their environment.
  Dr R Riesch, Prof M Brown
Application Deadline: 15 February 2019
Invasive alien species are a key global threat to healthy ecosystems, yet we still have only a poor understanding of the different levels on which they interact with their environment.
  Structure and Function of Innate Immune Signalling in Mosquito Vectors
  Research Group: Dr M Gangloff
  Dr M Gangloff
Applications accepted all year round
Over the course of a long evolutionary history vector-borne pathogens have developed mechanisms to successfully disrupt natural defences in both their mammalian hosts and insect vectors in order to survive and establish infection.
  Functional and mechanistic analysis of mRNA localisation and its role in polarised growth for S. cerevisiae and the pathogenic fungus Aspergillus fumigatus.
  Prof M Ashe, Prof N Read, Prof S Hubbard
Applications accepted all year round
Life threatening fungal diseases annually kill more people than malaria, tuberculosis or breast cancer and Aspergillus fumigatus is the most important human pathogenic filamentous fungus.
  Ph.D. position in geocomputational and mathematical modeling of diseases
  Prof E Michael
Application Deadline: 1 April 2019
Project Description. We are currently looking for a PhD student interested in applying mathematics, biostatistics, machine learning and geocomputation science to modelling disease transmission systems.
  Iron and Immunity: studying how iron and anaemia influence immunity and infectious diseases
  Prof A Drakesmith, Dr S Draper
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
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.
