  Adaptation of Pseudomonas aeruginosa in people with bronchiectasis during chronic inhaled treatment
  Dr L Sherrard, Dr M Tunney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Some individuals with bronchiectasis have respiratory infections with Pseudomonas aeruginosa which may lead to a worse clinical trajectory.
  Developing GWAS approaches to decipher the drivers of Bordetella pertussis adaptation during re-emergence
  Dr A Preston
Application Deadline: 8 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Genome rearrangement, the reordering of genes along the chromosome, is widespread among bacteria. It is thought to affect bacterial phenotype (behaviour) and contribute to their evolution and adaptation.
  Adaptation to oxidative stress in hepatitis C virus persistence: the role of IRES-dependent translation.
  Dr S-W Chan, Prof R Ford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) causes a clinically important disease affecting 3% of the world population (Chan 2014). About 75% of the infection will develop into chronic hepatitis, which can then progress into fibrosis, cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma.
  Infectious disease and 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.
  Caustic response: understanding plant adaptation to high pH and its application to remediation of alkaline industrial residues.
  Research Group: Centre for Plant Sciences
  Prof A Baker, Prof D I Stewart
Application Deadline: 1 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Motivation. Around two billion tonnes of alkaline residues are produced globally each year by industrial processes. These residues are frequently stored in waste piles or landfills, and can be an environmental hazard if allowed to generate dust or if rainwater infiltrates the waste (Gomes et al 2016).
  Experimental Evolution of Thaumarchaeota
  Dr C Gubry-Rangin, Prof J Prosser
Application Deadline: 23 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The fundamental aim of this project is to determine the process of adaptive diversification and associated trade-offs in fitness, by studying microbial evolution experimentally.
  Hormone regulation of fungal pathogenicity
  Dr R Hall
Application Deadline: 17 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Candida albicans is an commensal yeast residing in the oral, gastrointestinal and urogenital tracks in up to 80% of the population.
  Over 100 Fully Funded PhD Scholarships Available in Taiwan’s Preeminent Academic Institution - Academia Sinica

Funding Type

PhD Type

Application Deadline. 1st February 2021 (GMT+8). Academia Sinica's Taiwan International Graduate Program ([email protected]) provides over 100 funded PhD scholarships in 12 interdisciplinary programs ranging from physical sciences, life sciences to social sciences and the humanities.
  Molecular characterization of Cryptosporidium parvum anthroponosum – a new threat to world health. (TylerKU19SF)
  Dr K Tyler, Prof N Hall
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human cryptosporidiosis is the leading protozoan cause of diarrhoeal mortality worldwide, and most infection is caused by either person to person transmitted Cryptosporidium hominis or the presumptively zoonotic C.
  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.
