  GW4 BioMed MRC DTP PhD studentship: Strain wars and the evolution of opportunistic pathogens
  Prof S Sheppard
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the ‘GW4 BioMed MRC Doctoral Training Partnership’ which is offering up to 18 studentships for entry in September 2020.
  EASTBIO Genomic epidemiology of bovine mastitis pathogens
  Dr G Paterson, Dr A Macrae, Prof R Fitzgerald
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies / The Roslin Institute. Mastitis, inflammation of the mammary gland, is one of the most common and economically important diseases in dairy cattle.
  Analysis of pathogen determinants recognized by the hypervariable immune receptor Dscam
  Dr M Soller
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. To mount an immune response, host organisms must first recognize the pathogen with which they are infected. The first line of defense against pathogen infection in animals is provided through the innate immune response.
  Finding Achilles Heel: Investigating how to control major bacterial pathogens (WEBBERQ20DART)
  Dr M Webber, Prof J Wain
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacterial infection remains a major cause of morbidity and mortality with hospital acquired infections still common. The increase in numbers of bacterial which are AMR (antimicrobial resistant) makes prevention of infection more important than ever.
  EASTBIO Rapid mobile diagnostics for zoonotic pathogens in LMICs
  Dr S Mazeri, Dr A Muwonge, Dr M Bronsvoort
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies / The Roslin Institute. Zoonotic diseases are a major concern for poor livestock keepers in lower- & middle-income countries (LMICs) where they are exposed to a huge range of pathogens many of animal origin.
  The molecular basis of the success of bacterial pathogens.
  Dr M van der Woude, Prof G H Thomas
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The success of a bacterial species depends on its ability to grow and survive in a changing and potentially hostile environment. This requires adaptation at both the single cell and population level.
  New ways of terminating transcription in bacterial pathogens
  Dr C Brown
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

An excellent PhD candidate (’A’ grades) interested in researching the fundamental process of gene expression in bacteria is being recruited to join a multidisciplinary team led at University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand.
  GW4 BioMed MRC DTP PhD studentship: Snapshot into the fungal nucleus – opening novel avenues to tackle fungal disease
  Dr H-W Nützmann
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the ‘GW4 BioMed MRC Doctoral Training Partnership’ which is offering up to 18 studentships for entry in September 2020.
  Regulation of virulence and biofilm formation by quorum sensing and the "stress alarmone" ppGpp in gram-negative pathogenic bacteria.
  Dr M Welch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are investigating the complex interplay between cell-cell signalling (quorum sensing), microbial lifestyle (i.e., free-living planktonic cultures vs sessile biofilm communities), growth phase and virulence in gram-negative bacteria.
  Evolution of Influenza Viruses - prediction of possible future antigenic variants
  Prof D Smith
Application Deadline: 2 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Evolution of Influenza Viruses. Centre for Pathogen Evolution. Department of Zoology. University of Cambridge. Project summary. Our research focus is to design and develop analytical, computational, and mathematical methods to understand the fundamental processes that govern the evolution of influenza viruses.
