  Nucleic Acid Sensing: Investigating the molecular biology of activation and regulation of innate immune receptors that survey the cytosol, using a variety of virus infection models including influenza A virus, HIV and other retroviruses, flaviviruses such as Zika virus, and herpes viruses.
  Prof J Rehwinkel
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Investigating the molecular biology of activation and regulation of innate immune receptors that survey the cytosol, using a variety of virus infection models including influenza A virus, HIV and other retroviruses, flaviviruses such as Zika virus, and herpes viruses.
  Cryo-electron microscopy of nucleic acid processing machines from bacterial and human viruses
  Prof A A Antson, Dr J Blaza
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Viruses are the most common biological entities on our planet, infecting all living things. In humans, viral infections like herpes and poliovirus cause illnesses, particularly in the elderly, babies or people with lowered immune defense.
  Genetic models of the host-virus arms-race
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr D Obbard, Dr L McNally
Application Deadline: 13 December 2018
We expect evolutionary conflict to drive antagonistic co-evolution between hosts and viruses, so that (like Alice’s Red Queen) both host and virus are “running as fast as they can, just to stand still”.
  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.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Proteome-level diversity in RNA viruses
  Research Group: Institute of Infection, Immunity & Inflammation
  Dr E Hutchinson, Dr R Burchmore
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Supervisors. Dr Edward Hutchison. Dr Richard Burchmore. PhD project summary. RNA viruses are major threats to human and animal health and account for the majority of emerging infectious diseases.
  Production and assessment of antiviral prophylactic properties of natural biomolecules against avian influenza and Newcastle disease viruses affecting poultry production
  Dr M Iqbal, Dr A Smith
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Poultry infected with avian influenza viruses and/or Newcastle disease viruses suffer severe morbidity and mortality which can gravely impact poultry production.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Why do multiple pathogenic viruses including HIV, Influenza, Ebola, Herpesviruses and Adenovirus target the cellular transcription machinery?
  Prof S A Wilson, Prof A Whitehouse
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Viruses frequently hijack cellular processes as part of their life cycle. A recent proteomics screen revealed a core of mammalian proteins which are targeted by multiple viruses, defining four critical cellular nodes in viral infections (Nature 487:486-490).
  PhD studentship in oncolytic virotherapy and cancer immunology: Establishing a potent immuno-oncolytic virotherapy for colorectal cancer.
  Dr A Parker, Prof A Gallimore, Dr A Godkin
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
An exciting, fully funded PhD studentship opportunity. working at the interface between oncolytic virotherapy and cancer immunotherapy to develop a refined, tumour targeted “immunovirotherapy” suitable for colorectal cancer treatment.
  Molecular mechanisms of herpesviral infection
  Dr A Golovanov
Applications accepted all year round
Herpes viruses are known to cause a wide range of human diseases, ranging from simple cold sores to cancer, Kaposi Sarcoma. Kaposi Sarcoma, for example, is a type of cancer which affects immunocompromised patients and is endemic in Africa, where it is linked with the spread of HIV infection and AIDS.
  Innate immune responses to influenza virus infection
  Prof E Fodor
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Influenza viruses are important human and animal pathogens; they cause widespread clinical and veterinary disease and have a considerable economic impact.
