  Some like it hot: how mismatch between host and pathogen thermal ecology influences 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.
  Winter activity in the buff-tailed bumblebee (Bombus terrestris): how is diapause controlled in a commercially important pollinator?

Introduction. There is now little doubt that morbid conditions such as obesity, cardiovascular disease and diabetes are mechanistically linked.
  Budding yeast as a model for sudden cardiac death
  Dr T Hoefken
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sudden unexpected cardiac death is responsible for about half of all heart disease deaths. It is an unexpected death caused by a change in heart rhythm.
  Impact of targeted therapy on the melanoma immune microenvironment
  Dr K. Sheppard, Prof G. McArthur
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The treatment of melanoma is undergoing a fundamental change due to the success of both targeted therapies directed at the MAPK/ERK pathway and immunotherapies.
  Long read sequence analysis of cancer
  Dr N Waddell
Application Deadline: 11 August 2019
