  Declines in insect populations: consequences for parasites
  Dr P Mayhew, Prof C Dytham
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Insect populations may be declining over large areas of the planet. Recently, gene sequencing studies have suggested that a sizeable.
  An ‘Evolve and Resequencing’ based dissection of developmental competence in African trypanosomes
  Research Group: Institute of Immunology & Infection Research
  Prof K Matthews
Application Deadline: 13 December 2018
African trypanosomes are parasites that cause human sleeping sickness and the livestock disease, ‘nagana’ in sub Saharan Africa. These protozoan parasites use ‘quorum sensing’ in their host bloodstream to control the production of an arrested developmental form needed for transmission to their vector, the tsetse fly.
  Wild Biome: interactions between gut microbiota and parasites
  Dr S Perkins, Dr J Lello
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
In terms of numbers of cells, we are more bacteria than we are human, and the trillions of bacteria that inhabit our gut (our ‘microbiota’) are vital for biological processes and affect many aspects of health.
  Micro-managing the oceans: how parasites modify the role of copepods as ecosystem engineers.
  Dr M van der Giezen, Dr E Santos
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Location. University of Exeter, Streatham Campus, Exeter EX4 4QJ. This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  Invasive bees, invasive disease. The ecology and evolution of parasites associated with bumblebees in South America, Japan, and Europe
  Dr S Barribeau, Prof S Paterson
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Bumblebees are crucial pollinators in both wild and agricultural systems. Bumblebees are also facing widespread declines, in part due to infectious diseases, which challenges the stability of wild floral communities, and the animals that depend on them, and food security.
  Drug discovery and Chemical-Biology Approaches Against Parasites that cause Neglected Tropical Diseases.
  Dr T Smith
Application Deadline: 14 December 2018
This proposal is aimed at students wanting to work at the interface of chemistry and biology.
  3-YEAR PhD Studentship on target-based antimalarial drug discovery
  Prof J Vakonakis
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Malaria is one of the most lethal infectious diseases, killing an estimated 450,000 people each year and infecting millions more in developing countries.
  Social epidemiology: interactions, networks, and disease spread in a key pollinator
  Prof M Brown, Prof M Fisher
Application Deadline: 15 January 2019
Disease spread – in humans, domesticated animals and plants, and wildlife – is a major threat to health and ecosystem services. However, how diseases spread – their epidemiology – in complex social organisms, like humans and bees, is poorly understood.
  Immune control of parasitic infection: Defining the role of gel-forming mucins in protection against gastrointestinal nematodes
  Prof D Thornton, Prof R K Grencis
Applications accepted all year round
Infection by gastrointestinal parasites (GI) is one of the most common types of parasitic infection in man and animals worldwide.
