  Understanding and curing genetic kidney disease.
  Prof M Saleem, Dr G Welsh
Applications accepted all year round
Genetic variation is the fundamental basis of inherited disease and acquired diseases such as cancer. Current technologies allow us to investigate diseases where only one or a small number of variants of genes are altered e.g CF or Huntingtons disease.
  China Scholarship Council PhD Programme: Molecular characterisation of plant disease resistance genes through novel Next-Generation Sequencing applications
  Dr I Hein
Application Deadline: 14 January 2019
This PhD project will provide comprehensive training for the successful candidate in potato genetics (diploid and tetraploid) as well as plant-pathogen genomics/co-evolution.
  Antimicrobial resistance and One Health: foodborne carriage of antimicrobial resistance markers (RDF19/HLS/AS/FOX)
  Dr E Fox
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Antimicrobial resistance is among the largest threats to human health, with the emergence of multidrug resistant bacterial infections meaning traditional treatment approaches are being rendered ineffective.
  The genetic basis of cognitive impairment in intellectual disability and schizophrenia
  Prof C Inglehearn, Dr M Ali
Applications accepted all year round
Schizophrenia is a chronic mental health condition affecting 1% of human populations, with symptoms that include visual and auditory hallucinations, delusions and disordered thought, leading to disruption of the sense of self.
  How does low genetic diversity impact pathogen emergence in a vulnerable island species, the Tasmanian devil
  Dr H Siddle, Dr P Skipp
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Project Rationale. Devil Facial Tumour 2 (DFT2) is a recently discovered contagious cancer circulating in the Tasmanian devil, an island marsupial which has suffered drastic population decline due to an older, more widespread contagious cancer, Devil Facial Tumour 1 (DFT1)2.
  Oceanic island museomics: human impact and the natural laboratory paradigm
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr R Allaby
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Project Highlights. Testing the assumptions of the natural laboratory paradigm – the idea that islands are ideal model systems for studying evolution.
  Cryptosporidium movement in water: impact of eutrophication and climate change on the zoonotic disease agent
  Prof J Cable
Application Deadline: 17 December 2018
Cryptosporidium is a human pathogen unknown until the mid-1970s; in 1993 0.4 million people were infected in Milwaukee following a water treatment failure, and since then, large outbreaks throughout the developed world (most recently Sweden, 2010) have kept the parasite in the public eye.
  Characterising the faecal virome in Crohn’s disease patients with known NOD2 variants compared to matched controls without gastrointestinal disease (ref: SF18/APP/Bridge)
  Dr SH Bridge
Applications accepted all year round
The human virome includes viruses that infect host cells and viruses that infect bacteria, and impacts on health and disease independently of classical viral disease.
  Multi-modal clinical testing of prostate cancer patient plasma.
  Prof G Attard
Application Deadline: 14 December 2018
Attard Lab is seeking a highly motivated and talented applicant with a background in computational sciences, e.g. bioinformatics, biomathematics, biostatistics, computer sciences with biosciences interests, or similar.
  Effects of oil spill dispersants on marine oil snow formation, fate and impact
  Dr B McKew, Dr T J McGenity
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Supervisory Team. Dr Boyd A McKew ([email protected]) - School of Biological Sciences, University of Essex. Dr Terry J McGenity ([email protected]) - School of Biological Sciences, University of Essex.
