  Bug-beats: using wing beat patterns for automated detection of mosquitoes
  Prof J Logan, Prof R Bomphrey
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Mosquito-borne diseases are a major challenge for human health, affecting 700 million people every year and resulting in over one million deaths.
  (BBSRC DTP) Comparative Genomics of odorant genes in Anopheles mosquitoes
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Dr C Walton, Prof S Lovell
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
As humans have increased in number and spread around the globe they provide novel and potentially rich sources of food for a variety of pests and pathogens, including mosquitoes.
  The toxic challenge: how do we control mosquito populations responsibly in small tropical island ecosystems?
  Dr R Gill, Dr L Cator, Dr A Burt
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
The use of chemical insecticides to control insect pest species is the most adopted strategy across the globe.
  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.
  Trait-based approaches for predicting mosquito distributions under environmental change
  Dr B Purse, Prof A Callaghan, Dr S White, Dr W Wint
Application Deadline: 16 January 2019
Mosquito-borne diseases cause substantial mortality and morbidity worldwide and are changing in distribution and impact due to globalisation and environmental change.
  Analysis of pathogen determinants recognized by the hypervariable immune receptor Dscam
  Dr M Soller
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
Background. To mount an immune response, host organisms must first recognize the pathogen with which they are infected. The first line of defense against pathogen infection in animals is provided through the innate immune response.
  Understanding Zika virus pathogenesis in human neurons
  Dr N Irigoyen
Application Deadline: 3 January 2019
Increased global travel, urbanization and climate change have dramatically increased the likelihood of encounters with emerging and re-emerging viruses.
  Phage WO as a vehicle to transform Wolbachia, a symbiont of major crop pests
  Dr B Makepeace
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Wolbachia, an obligate intracellular bacterium, is the commonest animal symbiont on Earth. Certain strains have spread throughout arthropod populations worldwide, in part due to the reproductive manipulations they induce in their hosts.
  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.
