  GW4 FRESH CDT studentship: Cryptosporidium movement in water- impact of eutrophication and climate change on the zoonotic disease agent
  Prof J Cable
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cryptosporidium is a human pathogen unknown until the mid-1970s; in 1993 0.4 million people were infected in Milwaukee following a water treatment failure, and since then, large outbreaks throughout the developed world (most recently Sweden, 2010) have kept the parasite in the public eye.

Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies / The Roslin Institute. Zoonotic diseases are a major concern for poor livestock keepers in lower- & middle-income countries (LMICs) where they are exposed to a huge range of pathogens many of animal origin.
  Emerging Infectious Diseases – Surveillance and Biosecurity
  Dr N Marks, Dr P McVeigh
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. A continued increase in both the geographical range of existing pathogens and the transmission of novel pathogens into the human population poses a challenge for the effective control of emerging infectious diseases (EIDs) and biosecurity.
  PhD Studentship Opportunity in Machine learning and portfolio approaches to cystic echinococcosis area risk classification and prioritisation of interventions
  Dr J Prada
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cystic echinococcosis (CE) is a zoonotic parasitic disease of significant public health concern in many parts of the world. For example, over 5,000 new CE cases are reported in South America every year and a recent study has estimated that more than 150,000 people in Bulgaria, Romania and Turkey might be affected by CE.
