  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.
  Modelling syndemics: hepatitis C virus (HCV) and drug related mortality among people who inject drugs
  Prof M Hickman, Dr H Fraser
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The prospective PhD student will be based within Population Health Sciences (PHS) in Bristol Medical School at the University of Bristol and linked to the Department of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Bath.
  Employing molecular virology to investigate hepatitis E virus replication (fully-funded PhD)
  Research Group: School of Molecular and Cellular Biology
  Dr M.R. Herod, Prof M Harris
Application Deadline: 27 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hepatitis E virus (HEV), is a major causative agent of acute, severe hepatitis. The infection can also be chronic, particular in immunocompromised people, and fatal in pregnant women or those with existing liver diseases.
  Epidemiological study of ageing populations affected by blood borne viruses and associated health risk behaviours : analysis of linked databases
  Prof S Hutchinson, Dr H Innes, Dr A Yeung
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project reference number. SHLS19006. Scotland has a track record in undertaking record-linkage studies to inform public health policy and practice.
  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.
  The role of endogenous retroviruses in human health and disease
  Dr G Magiorkinis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Transmission of HEV: risk from the environment and waste water in Scotland
  Dr C Hunter, Dr C Crossan, Prof L Scobie
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCEBE-19-027. In Scotland, the number of Hepatitis E virus (HEV) infections are increasing yearly, since 2011 laboratory confirmed cases have increased 15-fold.
  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.
  Probing the mechanism of zinc-finger antiviral protein (ZAP) inhibition of viral replication.
  Dr I Taylor, Dr C Swanson
Application Deadline: 12 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

A joint Crick-King’s College London funded PhD position for the 2019 programme between the labs of Ian Taylor and Chad Swanson.
  Regulation of intestinal immune responses to commensal bacteria by innate lymphoid cells
  Dr M Hepworth, Prof K Else
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Commensal bacteria present in the gastrointestinal tract provide beneficial roles for the host, such as supporting nutrient metabolism.
  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.
  Centrosome Amplification and Cancer
  Dr Y Ching
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Centrosome, which is the microtubule-organising center (MTOC) in the cell, plays a critical role in determining the motility, polarity and division of cell.
  Supramolecular attack particles in infectious and autoimmune disease. (#202004)
  Prof M Dustin, Prof L Dustin, Dr S Balint
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

CD8 T cells protect the host against intracellular pathogens and some cancerous cells by direct killing of these deranged cells (cytotoxicity) and by altering the tissue microenvironment.
  New approaches to glycan-based viral vaccine design
  Prof Q Sattentau
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Glycosylation is one of the most common post-translational protein modifications, and has been harnessed by many pathogens to evade the adaptive immune response.
