  Using live-cell imaging of the immune response to investigate host-pathogen interactions during infection.
  Prof R May
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

My group is interested in the molecular and cellular mechanisms that occur during host-pathogen interactions.
  The MRC-University of Glasgow Centre for Virus Research (CVR) PhD Funded Programme

Funding Type

PhD Type

Viral diseases kill many millions of people each year and are a significant global challenge to human health and prosperity. We have created a specialised MRC programme to train the next generation of scientists and leaders in virology research.
  Towards new antibacterial drugs to treat infections caused by multidrug-resistant bacteria: identification and characterization of novel natural product antibiotics
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr A O'Neill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared antimicrobial drug resistance one of the greatest problems currently facing human health, and the situation is especially grave in the case of infections caused by bacterial pathogens.
  Iron Biology
  Prof H Drakesmith, Dr O Bannard
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We study how iron and anaemia influence immunity and infectious diseases. Our research inspires therapies that control iron physiology to improve immunity, combat infections and treat disorders of iron metabolism.

  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: A New Front in Microbial Warfare—Delivery of Antifungal Effectors by the Type VI Secretion System
  Prof J Quinn, Dr C Stewart
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The type VI secretion system (T6SS) is widely used by bacteria to fire diverse effector proteins directly into neighbouring target cells.
  The role of SORL1 in B cell antigen trafficking
  Research Group: Centre for Experimental Medicine
  Dr D Malinova, Dr A Kissenpfennig
Application Deadline: 20 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

B cells are a crucial element of adaptive immunity by producing antibodies to neutralise invading pathogens. For an effective antibody response, a B cell must interact with and internalise (endocytose) antigens through its surface B cell receptor.
  Modelling lung deposition of inhaled particles in cystic fibrosis
  Prof O Jensen, Dr A Horsley, Dr C Whitfield
Application Deadline: 9 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disorder that affects the production and clearance of mucus from various organs in the body. In the lungs this causes blockage and thickening of airways, leading to lung damage and early death from respiratory failure.
  Do Altered host-microbial interactions promote oral inflammation during ageing?
  Dr J Konkel, Prof A McBain
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

As we age, the systems of our bodies become less able to function; rendering people increasingly infirm. Ageing affects our immune system, impeding our ability to both fight infection and maintain tolerance.
  15 three-year PhD studentships - Marie- Sklodowska-Curie (MSCA) Innovative Training Network “BactiVax” within the Horizon 2020 Programme of the European Commission

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for 15 three-year PhD studentships to be funded by the Marie- Skłodowska-Curie (MSCA) Innovative Training Network “BactiVax” within the Horizon 2020 Programme of the European Commission (Grant Agreement 860325).
