  PhD in cellular and structural biology - Elucidating infection at the plant-microbe interphase to define targets for crop breeding
  Dr C Voigt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Achieving food security is one of the most important global challenges. Crop production and yield has been increasingly threatened by plant pathogens in a rapidly changing environment.
  Improving vaccines for poultry: targeted delivery of multivalent viral antigens to distinct immune cells of different avian species
  Prof M Iqbal, Prof D Blake
Application Deadline: 8 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Avian influenza viruses (AIV) continue to be responsible for severe economic losses in poultry production in many parts of the world and remain a credible threat to food security and public health.
  Defining antigenic structure of avian influenza virus haemagglutinin protein to generate broadly reactive antibodies
  Dr J Sadeyen, Prof J Stewart
Application Deadline: 8 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Avian influenza viruses are an increasing threat to global poultry production and, through zoonotic infection, to human health where they are considered viruses with pandemic potential.
  Local gene drives for mosquitoes
  Dr M Anderson, Dr R Noad, Prof L Alphey
Application Deadline: 1 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD studentship funded by The Pirbright Institute is available to highly motivated students interested in genetic control of mosquitoes.
  Construction of QSAR models for searching multi-target drug hits beyond similarity-based applicability domains
  Dr X Liu, Dr J Meng, Prof F Falciani
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Drugs designed to act against individual molecular targets cannot usually combat multigenic diseases such as cancers in which alternative or compensatory pathways are often activated.
  Ligand-induced selective signalling of peptide GPCRs and their potential role in the regulation of mRNA methylation
  Prof Z Lu, Dr J Meng, Dr R Rong
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) modulate the majority of physiological and pathological processes and constitute the largest family of cell surface receptors and drug targets.
