  Balancing immunity in the face of variable nutritional resources and natural infection in a wild rodent
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr A Pedersen, Dr S Babayan
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Parasite infections and resource scarcity are common threats to the wellbeing of wild populations and domestic animals. Chronic helminth infections in particular compete with their hosts for nutritional resources, and are a global cause of productivity loss in livestock, estimated at £1.2 billion.
  The ecology of infection and immunity in a wild mouse system
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr A Pedersen, Prof A Fenton
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite great concern about the current global health threat of worms (helminths) in humans and domestic animals, we still don’t have a clear understanding about how ecological heterogeneity determines burdens, disease, or how to successfully control infections in variable populations.
  Fully-funded PhD positions in several natural sciences & engineering disciplines

Funding Type

PhD Type

Join an internationally renowned scientific community with the Hector FellowPhD program. PhD students benefit not only from the experience of the program, but also from the network of Hector Fellows.
  Potential therapeutic effects of natural products in Human Papillomavirus (HPV) related cervical cancers
  Dr H Ashrafi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cervical cancer is one of the most common types of cancer affecting women worldwide. Infection caused by high-risk human papillomaviruses (HPVs), especially type 16 and 18 are implicated in the etiology of most cervical cancers.
  Evaluation of natural plant based botanicals as alternative to therapeutic antibiotics
  Dr C Situ
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

It has become widely recognised that antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the biggest health threats that mankind faces encompassing huge health and economic burdens on governments and societies in every region of the globe.
  Inhibiting amyloid development using natural compounds: a molecular dynamics study
  Dr P Mulheran, Dr V A Ferro
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Amyloid fibrils are highly ordered protein aggregates associated with many neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s. Flavanoids, which are polyphenols such as curcumin present in the human diet, have been shown to inhibit fibril formation in tau protein which is abundant in neurons.
  The nanoscale organisation of immune cell surfaces in health and disease
  Prof D Davis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Super-resolution microscopes, celebrated in the 2014 Nobel Prize for Chemistry, are one of the tools that allow us to study immune cells in unprecedented detail.
  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.
  EASTBIO: Understanding the pathogenesis of life-threatening Burkholderia cenocepacia infections using blocking antibodies and novel chemistry scaffolds to untangle complex aspects of AMR
  Prof A Porter, Dr S Palliyil, Prof M Jaspars
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type
