  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: How does the human innate immune system kill the Streptococcus pneumoniae bacterium during infection?
  Dr A Fenton, Dr L Prince
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The bacterium Streptococcus pneumoniae is a highly successful human pathogen and a leading cause of pneumonia, a disease responsible for millions of deaths every year.

  Ph.D. Fellowship in Intestinal Innate Immunity and Host Defense Peptides
  Dr E Cobo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

RESEARCH. One Ph.D. position is available immediately at the University of Calgary, Canada to study gut innate immunity contributed by host defense peptides and immunoregulation in the epithelial and leukocyte cross-talking in response to microbial pathogens.
  Regulation of innate immune response by enhancer elements and genetic variants within them
  Research Group: Functional Gene Control
  Dr M Spivakov
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Non-coding DNA elements such as gene enhancers play key roles in gene regulation, particularly upon stimulus response and in development.
  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.
  Modulation of platelet-mediated innate immune responses in chronic lymphocytic leukaemia
  Dr M Arman
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) is the most common form of leukaemia in the Western World. B-cell receptor-induced intracellular signals are critical for the survival of leukaemia cells and disruption of this pathway by the Bruton’s tyrosine kinase (Btk) inhibitor ibrutinib is a highly effective CLL therapy.
  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.
  Precision Medicine DTP – Investigating disease causing mutations in PNPase- an approach to understand mitochondrial nucleic acid driven auto-inflammation
  Research Group: Centre of Genomic and Experimental Medicine
  Dr A Dhir, Dr S Tait, Dr T Chandra
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Mitochondrial diseases are a heterogeneous class of disorders often characterized by failure of mitochondrial function and loss of energy associated with respiratory chain complex deficiency.
  Crosstalk between the circadian clock and innate immune system in plants
  Research Group: Institute of Molecular Plant Sciences
  Dr G van Ooijen, Dr S Spoel
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Involvement of the circadian clock in many aspects of human health is well recognised, but circadian input in plant immunity is not as well understood.
