  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.
  EASTBIO The genetic basis of helminth-specific immune responses in wild Soay sheep (Ovis aries)
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr S Johnston, Dr T McNeilly, Prof D Nussey
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Individual differences in immune responses are widely observed in nature and are likely to be a major factor underlying variation in disease resistance, health and evolutionary fitness.
  Wellcome Trust funded four year PhD programme in Hosts, Pathogens and Global Health at the University of Edinburgh

Funding Type

PhD Type

The School of Biological Sciences, in partnership with Edinburgh Infectious Diseases is delighted to open applications to the fifth cohort of students on this Wellcome Trust funded four-year PhD programme.
  *EASTBIO* Adaptation in Exploratory Processes
  Research Group: Centre for Biological Diversity
  Prof K N Laland, Prof G Ruxton
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BBSRC Thematic Group. Frontier Bioscience. Organisms often respond to new challenges through ‘exploratory mechanisms’ (Gerhart & Kirschner, 1997), which are complex developmental systems that operate by generating variation (i.e.
  EASTBIO Understanding the rules of mitochondrial nucleic acid escape in innate immune activation
  Dr A Dhir, Dr S Tait
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mitochondria are the ‘power-stations’ of our cell, providing energy for cellular function. Mitochondria have evolved from ancient bacteria that invaded our cells a billion of years ago and have ‘integrated’ into our biological system in an endosymbiotic relationship.
  Profiling the landscape and evolution of complex structural variants and copy number changes across sarcomas
  Dr P Van Loo
Application Deadline: 12 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4-year PhD studentship is offered in Dr Peter Van Loo’’s Group based at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick). Sarcomas are tumours of mesenchymal origin, encompassing approximately 1% of adult cancers and 15% of childhood cancers.
  (MRC DTP) The oral microbiome, microbial metabolites and their impact upon local and systemic immunity
  Dr A McBain, Dr J Konkel
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Commensal microbes and the host immune system have formed an evolutionary partnership that is vital for the development, metabolism and defensive immunity of the host.
  Virus pathogenesis: interplay between the unfolded protein response and innate immunity.
  Dr S-W Chan, Prof R Ford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The unfolded protein response (UPR) is a cellular homeostatic response in restoring endoplasmic reticulum balance upon stress conditions e.g.
