  Super-selectors: inter-host variation in antimicrobial resistance evolution
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr L McNally, Dr P Vale
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is currently an intense focus on antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in medical, scientific and political arenas owing to its broad and potentially devastating public health consequences.
  (BBSRC DTP) How ecological interactions shape mutation rates to antimicrobial resistance
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Dr C Knight, Prof A McBain, Dr P Paszek, Dr R Krašovec
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The chance that an organism mutates, for instance that a microbe mutates to resist an antibiotic, can depend on that organism’s environment.
  Resistant rivers: can antimicrobial resistance spread through our river networks?
  Dr J U Kreft, Dr J Larsen
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The widespread use of antibiotics in humans and animals and as growth promoters for livestock has not only selected for resistance genes but also for plasmids carrying them.
  EASTBIO: Application of MinION Nanopore sequencing to understand the impact of environmental changes on sentinel indicators of ecosystem health
  Dr E Watson
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are increasingly aware that human, veterinary and environmental health is intricately linked and farming and food production systems must not only be resilient to environmental changes and threats but the systems themselves must also perform with minimal environmental impact.
  Emergence of antibiotic resistance in time-varying environments and the optimisation of antibiotic dosing
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr H Alexander, Dr L McNally
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The evolution of antimicrobial resistance presents a major, and growing, threat to our ability to effectively and economically treat bacterial infections.
  GW4 FRESH CDT studentship: Bacterial fish pathogens: ignored threats for aquaculture and the environment
  Dr C Berger, Prof J Cable
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

In Wales, freshwater fish stocks are in general decline. Around 95% of the rivers are now categorise at risk for salmon stock with most salmon stocks in England and Wales in a depleted state.
  Integrated mathematical modelling and experimental research into interactions between microorganisms
  Dr J U Kreft
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our group aims to combine theoretical & experimental approaches to understand major problems in the ecology and evolution of microbes.
  Wellcome Trust funded four year PhD programme in Hosts, Pathogens and Global Health at the University of Edinburgh

Funding Type

  Pharmaceuticals in agriculture - Assessing the impacts of wastewater and irrigation on crop production and soil health
  Dr S Toet, Prof A Boxall, Dr A Singer
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Large amounts of pharmaceuticals are used globally for human and animal treatment. These substances are released to agricultural soils directly through animal excreta, via manure or sewage sludge when applied as fertiliser, and by irrigation of wastewater.
