  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.
  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.
  Synthetic Virology: Development of gene delivery vectors/synthetic vaccines
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Prof P G Stockley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is worldwide interest in exploiting our modern understanding of genomics to target gene expression therapeutically via a variety of mechanisms, such as transgene insertion and CRISPR-Cas gene editing.
  Supporting Healthy Honey Bees Against Varroa and Viruses: a Scientific Understanding for Practical Solutions
  Dr A Bowman, Dr J Sternberg
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is an increasing need for insect pollination for crop production worldwide. At the same time, there is a global crisis in honey bee health resulting in a shortage of managed bee colonies to satisfy the growing needs of food production.
  Evolutionary genomics of bacteria-phage co-evolution
  Research Group: Microbial Genomics
  Dr R Mostowy
Application Deadline: 30 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are inviting applications for a research technician (with an option of becoming a PhD student) in the area of computational biology and genomics of bacteria-phage interactions.
  Identifying Dengue virus receptor proteins in Aedes aegypti mosquito
  Dr A Winter
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neglected tropical diseases caused by the Dengue virus (DENV), endemic Dengue fever and its more severe manifestation, Dengue syndrome, cause great socioeconomic loss as well as high mortality in Asia and South America.
  Structural and time-resolved studies of phage replication in bacterial biofilm
  Dr P Plevka
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

When Staphylococcus aureus cells form a biofilm in the human body they become shielded from the immune system and highly resistant to antibiotics.
  Structural study of enterovirus replication in vivo
  Dr P Plevka
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Viruses from the Enterovirus genus belong to the family Picornaviridae of human and vertebrate pathogens. Diseases caused by enteroviruses range from upper and lower respiratory tract infections to life-threatening encephalitis.
  Adaptation to oxidative stress in hepatitis C virus persistence: the role of IRES-dependent translation.
  Dr S-W Chan, Prof R Ford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) causes a clinically important disease affecting 3% of the world population (Chan 2014). About 75% of the infection will develop into chronic hepatitis, which can then progress into fibrosis, cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma.
  Virus pathogenesis: interplay between the unfolded protein response and innate immunity.
  Dr S-W Chan, Prof R Ford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The unfolded protein response (UPR) is a cellular homeostatic response in restoring endoplasmic reticulum balance upon stress conditions e.g.
