  Understanding resistance and tolerance to chytrid fungal disease in amphibians to improve conservation
  Dr L Grogan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project will involve working with captive animals (Australian barred frogs and tadpoles, including the endangered Fleay’s barred frog) to understand host responses to infection and mechanisms of resistance and tolerance to the devastating fungal disease, frog chytridiomycosis.
  Studying chloroplast biogenesis in the basal land plant Marchantia polymorpha: Using CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing and forward genetics to assess functional conservation and seek novel components
  Prof P Jarvis
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Link to group webpage. http://users.ox.ac.uk/~dops0547/. Chloroplasts are responsible for photosynthesis, and are the organelles that define plants [1].
  Climate Change Solutions: Developmental Programming of Fish Thermal Tolerance Limits
  Dr G Galli, Dr H Shiels
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change poses a significant threat to global biodiversity. Conservation strategies are critically dependent on a thorough understanding of the effects of fluctuating environments on animal morphology, physiology and behaviour.
  Soma-Germline communication and the role of cortical polarity in signalling regulation during Drosophila spermatogenesis
  Dr F Papagiannouli
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Stem cells have the unique capacity to develop into specialized cell types in our tissue and organ systems. They are critical for multi-cellular development, since they supply the new cells that build up our bodies as we grow and replenish, as we age, worn out, damaged, and diseased tissues.
  Investigation of antibiotic-resistant bacteria in seafood products and risk of exposure to these by consumers in the UK
  Dr A Mateus, Dr L Guardabassi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A large amount of seafood consumed in the UK are imported from countries outside the EU, where the use of antibiotics is often poorly regulated.
