  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.
  Imaging viruses and cells by electron cryomicroscopy (cryoEM)
  Dr P Rosenthal
Application Deadline: 12 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4-year PhD studentship is offered in Dr Peter Rosenthal’s Group based at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick). Our group studies the architecture of large protein assemblies in order to understand basic molecular mechanisms that control protein and membrane traffic in the cell and in virus infection.
  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.
  Molecular mechanisms of influenza virus replication
  Prof E Fodor
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Influenza viruses are important human and animal pathogens; they cause widespread clinical and veterinary disease and have a considerable economic impact.
  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.
  Novel autophagy pathways for the control of influenza virus infection (WILEMANQ20DTP)
  Prof T Wileman
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The recent outbreaks of avian influenza and the threat of a human influenza pandemic has highlighted the need to understand prevention and control of this virus by developing effective antiviral therapies.
  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.
  Developing a virus-like particle (VLP) Polio vaccine
  Dr G Mulley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Rationale. Poliovirus is a non-enveloped RNA virus, spread via the faecal-oral route, that causes the infectious disease Poliomyelitis (Polio).
  Enhancing immune stimulation of novel anti-cancer viral vaccine vectors
  Dr R Stanton, Dr E Wang
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ‘GW4 BioMed MRC DTP’ is awarding up to 18 studentships with an October 2020 start date, aligned with the themes of Infection, Immunity and Repair; Neuroscience and Mental Health; and Population Health.
  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.
