  Form Leads to Function: Multi-scale modelling of Lymph Node Architecture in Response to Vaccine Adjuvants
  Prof M Coles, Dr E Gaffney
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Although vaccines have been in use for over 250 years, the mechanisms driving protective immunity are not fully understood.
  Determinants of Human Papilloma virus (HPV) vaccination for cancer prevention
  Research Group: Public Health and Society
  Dr A Mason Jones, Prof R Newton
Application Deadline: 14 March 2019
The purpose of the studentship is to explore the determinants for uptake of the HPV vaccination programme in the UK and Uganda.
  PhD in Infection & Immunity - Understanding immune stimulation of novel viral vaccine vectors
  Dr R Stanton, Dr E Wang
Application Deadline: 27 February 2019
Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) is an exciting viral vaccine vector, that can protect against HIV and cancer in animal models. However it is also a pathogen that causes significant disease and death on a worldwide level, mainly in transplant recipients and unborn babies.
  Dissecting the neutralising antibody response to the porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus to identify novel vaccine targets
  Prof R Owens, Dr S Graham, Dr J Grimes, Prof John Hammond
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS) is the most important infectious disease affecting the global pig industry.

  PhD in Infection & Immunity - Modifying human cytomegaloviruses to drive expansion of effector natural killer and cytotoxic T cells
  Dr E Wang, Dr R Stanton
Application Deadline: 27 February 2019
Natural Killer (NK) cells and CD8+ cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTL) are immune cells known to kill cancerous and virus-infected cells and are being used to treat forms of these diseases.
  Mucosal Vaccines - using Bacillus subtilis spores to develop vaccines and adjuvants against disease
  Prof S Cutting
Applications accepted all year round
Heat stable bacterial spores are being used as novel mucosal vaccines. Spores of Bacillus subtilis have been used successfully as both vaccines and adjuvants against a number of diseases.
  Evolution of Influenza Viruses - prediction of possible future antigenic variants
  Prof D Smith
Applications accepted all year round
Evolution of Influenza Viruses. Centre for Pathogen Evolution. Department of Zoology. University of Cambridge. Project summary. Our research focus is to design and develop analytical, computational, and mathematical methods to understand the fundamental processes that govern the evolution of influenza viruses.
  Investigating rotavirus biology by modifying the genome of both virus and host
  Dr E Gaunt, Prof P Digard
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
A fully funded 4 year PhD project is available in the Gaunt group, The Roslin Institute, University of Edinburgh to investigate how rotavirus A interacts with the host.
  Preventing neonatal infectious arthritis in lambs: sources, transmission and characterisation of Streptococcus dysgalactiae
  Dr J Duncan
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Neonatal infectious arthritis is a severe and common disease of neonatal lambs which causes significant pain and suffering, substantial economic loss, and is a principle reason for antibiotic use in the sheep industry.
