  Nucleic Acid Sensing During Virus Infection – Innate Immunity
  Dr J Rehwinkel
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Virus infection is a constant threat to the cells of all living organisms. To counter this threat, cellular receptors detect virus presence and activate potent antiviral immune responses.

  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.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: How does the human innate immune system kill the Streptococcus pneumoniae bacterium during infection?
  Dr A Fenton, Dr L Prince
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The bacterium Streptococcus pneumoniae is a highly successful human pathogen and a leading cause of pneumonia, a disease responsible for millions of deaths every year.

  The contribution of human mast cells to innate functional memory in anti-bacterial responses
  Prof S Bulfone-Paus, Dr J Cavet
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the recent years, it has become evident that after infection or vaccination innate immune cells have the capacity to adapt and modify the nature of their activities following a single immunostimulatory challenge and display a long-term functional memory.
  PhD student position (f/m/d) in a research project analyzing the "Communication between neutrophilic granulocytes and other cells of the innate and adaptive immune system"
  Dr L Erpenbeck
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Clinic for Dermatology, Venerology and Allergology offers as soon as possible a PhD student position (f/m/d) in a research project analyzing the "Communication between neutrophilic granulocytes and other cells of the innate and adaptive immune system" limited for 3 years, 19,25 h/week (50%).
  Ph.D. Fellowship in Intestinal Innate Immunity and Host Defense Peptides
  Dr E Cobo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

RESEARCH. One Ph.D. position is available immediately at the University of Calgary, Canada to study gut innate immunity contributed by host defense peptides and immunoregulation in the epithelial and leukocyte cross-talking in response to microbial pathogens.
  Vitamin D and immunometabolism
  Prof M Hewison, Dr S Dimeloe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Vitamin D has potent anti-inflammatory and antibacterial immune effects.
  Regulation of innate immune response by enhancer elements and genetic variants within them
  Research Group: Functional Gene Control
  Dr M Spivakov
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Non-coding DNA elements such as gene enhancers play key roles in gene regulation, particularly upon stimulus response and in development.
  (MRC DTP) Innate immune crosstalk and orchestration of mucosal immunity
  Dr M Hepworth, Prof A MacDonald
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Barrier tissue sites - including the gastrointestinal tract, lung and skin – are the primary site of exposure to a multitude of foreign organisms and environmental challenges.
  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.
  Inhibition of innate immunity by vaccinia virus: a discovery tool for host restriction factors
  Prof G L Smith
Application Deadline: 1 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The interaction between viruses and their host reveals a fascinating conflict between host defense and virus evasion. The project concerns vaccinia virus (VACV), the live vaccine used to eradicate smallpox, and how it shuts down host innate defenses.
