Our group aims to combine theoretical & experimental approaches to understand major problems in the ecology and evolution of microbes.
  The Eco-Immunology of Wild Mice
  Prof M Viney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The immune responses that wild animals make contribute to their fitness, but what those immune responses are – and how they differ from those of laboratory animals – is hardly known.
  Characterising broad-acting resistance to bacterial canker of cherry and elucidating tissue-specific mechanisms of immunity
  Dr M Hulin, Dr R Harrison, Dr G Barrett, Prof J M Dunwell

  Infectious disease and adaptation to global change
  Dr M Hall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Global change is predicted to result in both rapidly changing environments and dramatic changes in disease outbreaks. Key to predicting winners and losers under the nexus of infection and global change is any mismatch between hosts and pathogens in their thermal tolerances and adaptive potential.
  Male-female differences the evolution of infectious disease
  Dr M Hall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The science that guides our understanding of health and infectious disease routinely overlooks the pervading impact of sex.
  Examining the interactions between plant-feeding insects and symbiotic fungi
  Prof A Gange
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

“Plants are not discrete entities, but instead are mergers of fungal cells with plant tissues”. This statement implies that every living plant has fungi living within the roots and shoots.
  Impact of multiple biotic and abiotic stressors on pathogenesis in mealworms and wax moths
  Dr H Hesketh, Dr A M Dunn, Assoc Prof N Vitt Meyling
Application Deadline: 28 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The objective of this PhD is to investigate how abiotic (climatic changes) and biotic (pathogens) stressors may impact arthropod cultures being reared for food and feed.
