EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Soft Matter for Formulation and Industrial Innovation (SOFI2 CDT)

20 fully funded, four-year PhD studentships are available in the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Soft Matter for Formulation and Industrial Innovation (SOFI2 CDT) commencing in September 2023, for graduates in the physical and biological sciences, mathematics and engineering. Read more

Treating bacterial infections using aldehydes

Mycobacteria is a large class of bacteria that includes a number of infamous human pathogens, including Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) and Mycobacterium leprae, the agents of tuberculosis (TB) and leprosy respectively. Read more

Epigenetic regulation of plant immunity

  Research Group: Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership (MIBTP)
Activation of plant immunity has to be finely balanced with other vital biological processes such as development and growth. A major part of plant immune responses is reprogramming of gene expression. Read more

Modelling the spread and control of livestock and zoonotic infectious diseases

  Research Group: Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership (MIBTP)
Mathematical models are extensively used in both public-health and veterinary-health policy planning. Modern predictive models are now at the heart of policy decisions, and such models are having an increasing role in supporting decisions associated with livestock infections. Read more

Identifying new drug targets within Mycobacterium tuberculosis

  Research Group: Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership (MIBTP)
Tuberculosis (TB) is the leading cause of death worldwide and reflects a serious global health challenge. This bacterial pathogen kills more people than malaria and HIV combined, and is increasingly developing resistance to many of the current front-line drugs. Read more

Molecular components of stress memory in plants

  Research Group: Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership (MIBTP)
Plants are sessile organisms that are known for their adaptive plasticity to the changing environment. Environmental changes cannot only influence gene expression patterns but also affect the stability of the genome. Read more

Wildlife disease

  Research Group: Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership (MIBTP)
Mathematical and statistical models are important tools in wildlife biology. For wildlife disease, they are particularly useful in evaluating vaccination or population management strategies in endangered species (e.g. Read more

PhD opportunities in the School of Medicine, Medical Sciences & Nutrition

 The School of Medicine, Medical Sciences, and Nutrition at the University of Aberdeen, provides a dynamic, world-class research environment, creating opportunities for greater knowledge and scientific discovery, that will underpin maintaining good health and the treatment of disease. Read more

Unravelling the global microbiome of crop plants to improve sustainability and food security

  Research Group: Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership (MIBTP)
Plants live in close association with complex communities of microbes which together constitute their ‘microbiome’. The microbiome interacts with the plant in numerous ways; some microbes are beneficial and promote plant growth, while others are pathogens which reduce crop yields. Read more

Cryo-electron microscopy of the hormone transport protein AUX1

  Research Group: Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership (MIBTP)
Biology background. Auxin signalling is quintessentially important for higher plant life and auxin transport proteins establish gradients of this hormone to help determine plant form and size. Read more

Early events in formation of the Immunological Synapse: Role of lipid microdomains in protein recruitment and sorting

  Research Group: Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership (MIBTP)
Background. The immunological synapse is a specialised cell-cell junction between an antigen presenting cell and a lymphocyte (T-cell) composed of >20 immune receptors that function in a concerted manner (Fig.1A). Read more

Assessing and predicting the impact of environmental factors on campylobacteriosis using mathematical modelling and Artificial Intelligence.

We know that some diseases, such as Ebola, are likely to occur in Africa but not in the UK. Some others, like seasonal flu in the northern hemisphere, occur more frequently in winter than in summer, and diseases like malaria are traditionally more common in rural, marshy lands than in cities.

Insects as a dietary protein source in nutrition and health: Feasibility of a sustainable alternative to animal-based protein sources (Ref FHMS - FF - 13 BIO)

Insects have been used as a source of dietary protein for many years in East-Asian and African populations and more recently the interest in this potential protein source has been growing in Western countries due to issues with food availability and delivery (e.g. Read more
