  Analysis of pathogen determinants recognized by the hypervariable immune receptor Dscam
  Dr M Soller
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Bloomsbury PhD studentship: “Omics” based characterisation of host genetics and gut microbiome composition in relation to pathogen abundance in chickens
  Dr A Psifidi, Prof F Tomley, Dr D Blake, Dr O Gundogdu
Application Deadline: 10 February 2019
Pathogenic microbes limit economic production of poultry, compromise animal welfare and pose a risk to human health. Vaccines are available for some pathogens but are expensive, with limited availability in many countries.
  Metals and host-pathogen interactions: the role of metal handling systems in the human gastrointestinal pathogen Campylobacter jejuni
  Dr J Cavet, Dr D Linton
Applications accepted all year round
Campylobacter jejuni is a globally important food-borne pathogen causing an estimated 400-500 million cases of acute human gastroenteritis each year.
  Suppression of extracellular host hydrolases by a plant pathogen
  Prof R Van der Hoorn
Applications accepted all year round
The extracellular space in leaves (the apoplast) is an important battlefield for plant-pathogen interactions. Plants defend this space by the (induced) secretion of hydrolytic enzymes.
  Genomic tools for field-based screening of a globally important pathogen in aquaculture -tilapia lake virus, Biosciences– PhD (Funded)
  Dr B Temperton, Prof C R Tyler
Application Deadline: 30 January 2019
Supervisors. Dr Ben Temperton, University of Exeter. Professor Charles Tyler, University of Exeter. Dr David Verner-Jeffreys, Centre for Environment, Fisheries & Aquaculture Science.
  China Scholarship Council PhD Programme: Molecular characterisation of plant disease resistance genes through novel Next-Generation Sequencing applications
  Dr I Hein
Application Deadline: 11 February 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.
  Understanding Xylella fastidiosa, a globally challenging plant pathogen - studies in pathogenicity and population genomics
  Prof R W Jackson
Applications accepted all year round
This is an exciting PhD opportunity working with the University of Reading. It will focus on applying advanced sequencing technologies and population genomics to understand a globally challenging plant pathogen that currently threatens worldwide horticulture.
  Global analysis of evasive strategies developed by Staphylococcus aureus to circumvent complement and innate immunity
  Dr M Laabei
Application Deadline: 24 February 2019
Staphylococcus aureus is an important human pathogen responsible for a wide-spectrum of diseases that range from mild superficial skin diseases to life-threatening infections.
  Nutritional Immunity in Drosophila - identifying the underlying nutrient-sensing control of host immune regulators and investigating how altered nutrients affect pathogen prosperity
  Dr M Piper, Dr L Wakeling
Applications accepted all year round
PhD Student Position. Nutritional Immunity in Drosophila. Monash University, Australia and Newcastle University, UK.
  Some like it hot: how mismatch between host and pathogen thermal ecology influences adaptation to global change
  Dr M Hall
Applications accepted all year round
Global change is predicted to result in both rapidly changing environments and dramatic changes in disease outbreaks. Key to predicting winners and losers under the nexus of infection and global change is any mismatch between hosts and pathogens in their thermal tolerances and adaptive potential.
