  Development of a single NGS pipeline using a novel universal virus enrichment panel for the detection and typing of viral pathogens.
  Prof L Scobie, Dr R Gunson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project reference number. SHLS19001. Current routine virology diagnostics rely upon serological methods and novel molecular methods such as real time PCR.
  Health and Economic Impact of Viral Vaccinations on Antibiotic Use and Resistance
  Dr C Costelloe, Dr J Robotham
Application Deadline: 4 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

2019-20 Medical Research Foundation National PhD Training Programme in Antimicrobial Resistance Research PhD Studentship. This fully-funded 3.5 year PhD studentship is available for an excellent candidate interested in researching the problem of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in a cross-disciplinary manner.
  The structural basis of viral transport by dynein/dynactin.
  Dr A Carter
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Viruses are too large to move inside cells unless they hijack cytoskeletal motors such as the microtubule motor dynein. Remarkably dynein is co-opted by all classes of virus.
  Mathematical Virology: A New Mathematical Approach to Viral Evolution Grounded in Experiment
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Prof P G Stockley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mathematical modelling of natural phenomena has the potential to be predictive but requires direct verification by experiment. Such models can then be very powerful indicators of our understanding and they permit in silico simulations of situations that are difficult to test experimentally.
  Influence of HIV-1 opsonization on APC functions with regard to persistence of the virus and opportunistic pathogens, such as Mycobacteria spp. within relevant human 3D models
  Prof D Wilflingseder, Prof S Niemann
Application Deadline: 10 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

HIV-1 and Mycobacterium tuberculosis represent detrimental co-epidemics worldwide, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa, and co-infection accelerates progression of both diseases.
  Cryo-electron tomography of HIV-1 assembly and maturation
  Dr J Briggs
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Retroviruses are enveloped RNA viruses, whose assembly is largely driven by the viral Gag polyprotein. Gag recruits other virion components and targets them to the viral assembly site.
  Defining a novel assembly pathway in ssRNA viruses using X-ray footprinting.
  Prof P G Stockley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project co-supervised by Prof. Peter Stockley at Leeds and Prof. Reidun Twarock at University of York, as part of the White Rose network "Structural and Mechanistic Biology at the RNA/Ligand Interface".
  PhD studentship in Viral Immunology: role of T and NK cells in dengue virus infection
  Dr L Rivino
Application Deadline: 30 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project description. We are offering a 3-year funded PhD position to study the role of human T and NK cell immunity during infection with dengue virus (DENV), a flavivirus that is transmitted by infected Aedes mosquitoes.
  Therapeutic models for Spinal muscular atrophy
  Prof R Yáñez-Muñoz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our laboratory works on Gene Therapy in the Central Nervous System and Gene Repair, using novel viral vectors, gene targeting and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) as core technologies.
  Synthetic biology toward innovative virus-like particles
  Prof Bernd Rehm
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Virus-like particles (VLP) are self-assembled viral proteins that do not contain genetic material and are non-infectious. VLPs have been successfully developed into particulate vaccines for prevention of viral infections such as human papilloma virus or Hepatitis B.
