  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.
  (WIS) How food-borne Listeria monocytogenes overcomes the host defence mechanisms at the single cell level?
  Prof I Roberts, Dr P Paszek
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pathogens have developed intricate ways to overcome the host’s immune system. In this proposal we will study the direct interaction of macrophages with the important food-borne bacterial pathogen Listeria monocytogenes that causes significant human morbidity and mortality.
  Understanding the role of DRAM in infection and autophagy-related disease
  Dr J King, Dr P Elks
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Intracellular degradation by lysosomes is important in a wide range of diseases. The capture and degradation of cytoplasmic components by autophagy allows tumour cells to survive starvation and neurons to remove the protein aggregates associated with neurodegeneration.
  Single-cell proteomic analysis of host-factor cleavage during norovirus infection
  Dr E Emmott, Dr M Iturriza
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human norovirus is a major human pathogen, and the causative agent behind ‘winter vomiting disease’. Typically, infection is self-limited, causing diarrhoea and vomiting lasting from 24-72 hours.
  MRC DTP 4 Year PhD Programme: Structural and developmental mechanics in polarized membrane trafficking
  Dr D H Murray, Dr J Januschke
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is offered as part of the University of Dundee 4-year MRC DTP Programme “Quantitative and Interdisciplinary approaches to biomedical science”.
  MRC DTP 4 Year PhD Programme: Cell biology of a bacterial nano-weapon
  Dr S Coulthurst, Dr C Rickman
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is offered as part of the University of Dundee 4-year MRC DTP Programme “Quantitative and Interdisciplinary approaches to biomedical science”.
  Determining how immune responses are regulated at mucosal surfaces
  Prof M Travis, Prof D Thornton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The immune system must be primed to quickly respond to infection, but must also be tightly regulated so it ignores harmless substances and our own tissues.
  EMBL Australia Partnership PhD Program

Funding Type

PhD Type

Undertake interdisciplinary, postgraduate research for a PhD degree at Australia's top life science laboratories. Successful students will receive generous scholarships and travel grants while undertaking their PhD at an EMBL Australia laboratory in Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra or Adelaide.
  The nanoscale organisation of immune cell surfaces in health and disease
  Prof D Davis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Super-resolution microscopes, celebrated in the 2014 Nobel Prize for Chemistry, are one of the tools that allow us to study immune cells in unprecedented detail.
  The respiratory metagenome during exacerbations of asthma
  Prof N Papadopoulos, Prof D Robertson, Dr S Megremis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Asthma is an international pandemic, with 10% or more of the global population having experience asthma symptoms some time in life.
  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.
  MRC DTP 4 Year PhD Programme: Functions & Applications of a Novel Stem Cell Signalling Pathway
  Dr GM Findlay, Dr M Stavridis
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is offered as part of the University of Dundee 4-year MRC DTP Programme “Quantitative and Interdisciplinary approaches to biomedical science”.
  How does the human gut microbiota protect against infection with enterohaemorrhagic E. coli? (SchullerS-NarbadAU19SF)
  Dr S Schüller, Prof A Narbad
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human body is populated by trillions of commensal bacteria (microbiota), most of which reside in the intestine and have established a symbiotic relationship with the host.
  PhD Positions in Cancer Research

Funding Type

PhD Type

Are you looking for excellent research opportunities for your PhD studies at the forefront of cancer research? The German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ)…
  Determining novel molecular regulators of necrosis controlling premature cell death
  Dr Y Fan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Necrosis, a form of premature cell death, is frequently caused by excessive insults such as trauma, infection and toxins. It has been implicated in many human diseases including cancer, neurodegenerative disorders and inflammatory diseases.
