  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.
  Earth observation to understand and manage nutrition-parasite interactions under global climate change
  Prof I Kyriazakis
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project is part of the ONE Planet DTP. Find out more here. https://research.ncl.ac.uk/one-planet/. Global climate change is altering plant phenology, and hence spatio-temporal patterns of primary production in grazing systems.
  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.
  Study of novel vaccine candidates related to the endogenous development in Eimeria
  Dr v Marugan-Hernandez, Dr D Blake, Prof F Tomley
Application Deadline: 10 February 2019
Coccidia are obligate intracellular parasites that undergo their endogenous development within a specialised structure called the parasitophorous vacuole (PV) that is formed during the process of zoite invasion.
  In silico modelling of parasite dynamics
  Prof O Jones
Applications accepted all year round
The management of infectious disease is a major concern for conservation of wild fish stocks and is a primary constraint on the viability and sustainability of farmed fish.
  Causes and consequences of microbiome variation in the water vole Arvicola amphibius
  Prof S Piertney, Dr S Helyar
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Gut microbiomes are increasingly recognised for having a major influence on host health, fitness, reproductive success, development and behaviour.
  Molecular regulation of surface remodelling in the human pathogen Schistosoma mansoni
  Prof A Walker
Applications accepted all year round
In this PhD project you will perform cutting edge research that aims to identify molecular signalling events that underpin the survival of schistosomes in their human host.
  Identifying Environmental Factors of Soil Transmitted and Food Borne Helminth Diseases in Border Regions of Northern Thailand
  Dr G Gobert, Dr S Telfer
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project will be supervised by Dr Geoff Gobert of Queen’s University School of Biological Sciences and by Dr Sandra Telfer of the University of Aberdeen’s Institute of Biological and Environmental Sciences.
  (BBSRC DTP) Chitinase-like proteins (CLP) as first responders to infection and injury: understanding CLP-glycosaminoglycan interactions
  Prof T Day, Prof J Allen
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Parasitic worms (helminths) infect most mammals including a third of the human population. Although rarely causing death, these parasites cause significant morbidity in part by the damage they inflict while migrating through the tissues.
