  Coevolution of host resistance with multiple parasites: experiment & theory
  Dr A Best, Dr H Leggett
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Infectious diseases have major impacts on human health, agriculture and natural systems, causing immeasurable personal and societal harm alongside considerable economic costs.
  Evolutionary ecology of bumble bees and their parasites
  Prof M Brown
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research in my group addresses questions about the evolutionary ecology of host-parasite associations, using bumble bees as hosts and their natural complement of parasites.
  Parasite communities in the wild: passengers or drivers?
  Dr D Childs, Prof A Fenton, Dr A Pedersen
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Parasites are ubiquitous in natural systems, and although they can have significant negative effects on host fitness, their observed impacts are often weak or undetectable.
  Molecular adaptation in Leishmania parasites
  Dr D Jeffares, Prof J Mottram
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Leishmania are single-celled protozoan parasites of the Order Trypanosomatidae that cause the neglected tropical disease leishmaniasis.
  Ultrastructural analysis of the mouse whipworm as a model for human trichuriasis
  Prof R K Grencis, Dr T Starborg
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gastrointestinal dwelling nematode parasites are extremely successful parasites of both man and animals infecting over a billion people worldwide and are responsible for considerable morbidity and ill health worldwide.
  GW4 BioMed MRC DTP PhD studentship: The role of virulence hotspots in parasitic nematode genomes
  Dr V Hunt
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the ‘GW4 BioMed MRC Doctoral Training Partnership’ which is offering up to 18 studentships for entry in September 2020.
  NERC GW4+ DTP PhD studentship: Multi-trait evolution in host-parasite systems
  Dr B Ashby
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  FH, FHR and PTX-3 binding to opportunistic bacteria and malaria parasites
  Prof S Meri, Prof C Garlanda
Application Deadline: 10 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Infections pose a global threat because of spread of antibiotic resistance, hospital infections and problems in the third world. On the other hand, rapidly increasing information of microbial genomes now provides new opportunities to tackle virulence mechanisms of pathogenic microbes.
  Ecological drivers and consequences of lateral gene transfers in plants
  Dr P A Christin, Prof J D Scholes
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lateral gene transfers (LGT) are widespread in prokaryotes, where they allow the spread of adaptations among distinct species. More recently, LGT have also been reported among multicelullar eukaryotes, such as plants.
  Molecular regulation of surface remodelling in the human pathogen Schistosoma mansoni
  Prof A Walker
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
