  Molecular regulation of surface remodelling in the human pathogen Schistosoma mansoni
  Prof A Walker
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this PhD project you will perform cutting edge research that aims to identify molecular signalling events that underpin the survival of schistosomes in their human host.
  Species-specific remodelling of host cells in the most pathogenic malaria causing parasite Plasmodium falciparum
  Dr M Treeck
Application Deadline: 23 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4-year PhD studentship is offered in Dr Moritz Treeck’s Group based at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick). The most severe form of human malaria is caused by the parasite Plasmodium falciparum.
  Ultrastructural analysis of the mouse whipworm as a model for human trichuriasis
  Prof R K Grencis, Dr T Starborg
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gastrointestinal dwelling nematode parasites are extremely successful parasites of both man and animals infecting over a billion people worldwide and are responsible for considerable morbidity and ill health worldwide.
  Point-of-care diagnosis of opportunistic fungal infections using innovative molecular biosensors.
  Dr J Tovar
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human fungal infections have emerged as one of the most pressing global health problems in recent years.
  Genome-wide responses to stress
  Dr J Mata
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are interested in gene regulation in responses to stress, using both simple model organisms, human and plant pathogens. Cells respond to stress conditions by launching complex programs of gene expression, both transcriptional and posttranscriptional, and which are often closely linked with each other.
  Detecting Schistisome Infection in Biomphalaria and Bulinus Snails
  Dr C M Wade, Dr S Goodacre
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Schistosomiasis (bilharzia) is a neglected tropical disease that affects some 252 million people worldwide. It is caused by parasitic flatworms of the genus Schistosoma and is contracted through human contact with contaminated water.
  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.
  Host-pathogen interactions of the Cryptosporidium parasite
  Dr A Sateriale
Application Deadline: 12 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4-year PhD studentship is offered in Dr Adam Sateriale’s Group based at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick). Cryptosporidium, or ‘crypto’, is an intracellular parasite that causes a severe diarrhoeal disease known as cryptosporidiosis.
  (MRC DTP) The role of the brain glymphatic system in recovery from cerebral malaria
  Dr K Couper, Dr D Brough, Dr M Fergie
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cerebral malaria is a severe complication of Plasmodium falciparum infection that affects 2 -3 million people, resulting in approximately 300,000 deaths, each year.
  FH, FHR and PTX-3 binding to opportunistic bacteria and malaria parasites
  Prof S Meri, Prof C Garlanda
Application Deadline: 10 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Infections pose a global threat because of spread of antibiotic resistance, hospital infections and problems in the third world. On the other hand, rapidly increasing information of microbial genomes now provides new opportunities to tackle virulence mechanisms of pathogenic microbes.
