  A comprehensively analysis of microorganisms and viruses from ancient samples using minion sequencing techniques
  Prof M Marz
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
In current metagenomic samples we are able to assign only up to 10% of the microorganisms, most of them being bacteria. This number drops significantly when investigating additionally viruses in especially ancient samples.
  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: 26 July 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.
  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.
  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.
  Synthetic Biology PhD - exploring how viruses can be used as components in bionanoassembly.
  Prof T R Dafforn
Applications accepted all year round
One of the aims of Synthetic Biology is to build complex bio-machines using the simple building blocks of life.
  Simulation of chiral viruses
  Dr M A Bates
Applications accepted all year round
Background. Concentrated solutions of helical rod-like particles such as polynucleotides and polypeptides are known to form orientationally ordered liquid crystal phases.
  The role of endogenous retroviruses in human health and disease
  Dr G Magiorkinis
Applications accepted all year round
More than 10 years have passed since the first high quality (nearly) complete version of the human genome and we are still exploring its functionality.
  Structural and Functional Characterisation of TRIM25-RNA Complex
  Research Group: Edinburgh Infectious Diseases
  Dr G Michlewski, Dr A Cook
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
RNA viruses continue causing devastating epidemics and pandemics in the 21st century. For example, influenza A virus kills 250,000 to 500,000 people annually and generates huge socioeconomic burden.
  Characterising the faecal virome in Crohn’s disease patients with known NOD2 variants compared to matched controls without gastrointestinal disease (ref: SF18/APP/Bridge)
  Dr SH Bridge
Applications accepted all year round
The human virome includes viruses that infect host cells and viruses that infect bacteria, and impacts on health and disease independently of classical viral disease.
