  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.
  Controlling wombat mange by targeting scabies ligand-gated chloride channels
  Prof R Harvey, Dr K Mounsey
Application Deadline: 15 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The scabies mite (Sarcoptes scabiei) is an ectoparasite of global significance. In Australia, the common wombat (Vombatus ursinus) is highly susceptible to sarcoptic mange, where the disease is often fatal resulting in substantial population declines.
