  Evolutionary genomic analysis of rodent immune genes
  Prof S Paterson, Prof M Viney
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

You will investigate how immune systems evolve. Immune systems are highly sophisticated networks encoded by hundreds of genes. One way to understand how these networks function is to compare them between related species, to see which genes are common between them and which are unique.
  Evolutionary insights for engineering improved globin oxygen carriers
  Dr M Berenbrink, Dr J Madine
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Around 2 million red blood cell units at a cost of 120.00 GBP per unit are transfused annually in England alone (http://www.nhsbt.nhs.uk/what-we-do/blood-transfusion/).
  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.
  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.
  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) Understanding and predicting evolutionary change in HIV
  Prof S Lovell, Dr C Walton, Prof S Griffiths-Jones
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our overall aim is to understand viral evolution, and the limitations on evolution that arise from the viral genome, proteome and structure-function relationships.
  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.
  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: 10 January 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.
  Molecular characterization of Cryptosporidium parvum anthroponosum – a new threat to world health. (TylerKU19SF)
  Dr K Tyler, Prof N Hall
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human cryptosporidiosis is the leading protozoan cause of diarrhoeal mortality worldwide, and most infection is caused by either person to person transmitted Cryptosporidium hominis or the presumptively zoonotic C.
  Immune and physiological determinants of host heterogeneity in pathogen shedding and spreading
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr P Vale
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Second Supervisor. Andrea Wilson, The Roslin Institute, University of Edinburgh, [email protected] Individuals vary tremendously in their propensity to transmit infections.
