  Balancing immunity in the face of variable nutritional resources and natural infection in a wild rodent
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr A Pedersen, Dr S Babayan
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Parasite infections and resource scarcity are common threats to the wellbeing of wild populations and domestic animals. Chronic helminth infections in particular compete with their hosts for nutritional resources, and are a global cause of productivity loss in livestock, estimated at £1.2 billion.
  The ecology of infection and immunity in a wild mouse system
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr A Pedersen, Prof A Fenton
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite great concern about the current global health threat of worms (helminths) in humans and domestic animals, we still don’t have a clear understanding about how ecological heterogeneity determines burdens, disease, or how to successfully control infections in variable populations.
  PhD Studentship: Development of molecular tools for rapid assessment of biocontrol and its utility in integrated pest management of an Invasive moth species in the UK.
  Dr J KItson
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Number of awards. 1. Start date and duration. January 2020 (3 years). Overview. Invasive species are a threat to biodiversity worldwide with consequences for both native wildlife and the managed habitats that people rely on for survival (e.g.
  MRC DTP 4 Year PhD Programme: Strategy to identify novel and exploitable anti-malarial drug targets
  Dr S Wyllie, Dr I H Gilbert
Application Deadline: 11 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is offered as part of the University of Dundee 4-year MRC DTP Programme “Quantitative and Interdisciplinary approaches to biomedical science”.
  Social and transgenerational effects of parasitism: potential impact in a stored product pest
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr E Cunningham, Prof N Colegrave
Application Deadline: 13 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Summary. This project will investigate the impact of infection on host and non-host members of a population across subsequent generations.
  EASTBIO The genetic basis of helminth-specific immune responses in wild Soay sheep (Ovis aries)
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr S Johnston, Dr T McNeilly, Prof D Nussey
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Individual differences in immune responses are widely observed in nature and are likely to be a major factor underlying variation in disease resistance, health and evolutionary fitness.
  GW4 BioMed MRC DTP studentship: Understanding the role of coinfection in disease and infection control
  Dr J Lello, Dr T Connor
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Coinfection, where two or more parasite species infect a host at the same time, is the norm in most human populations, particularly in developing countries.
  GW4 FRESH CDT studentship: Cryptosporidium movement in water- impact of eutrophication and climate change on the zoonotic disease agent
  Prof J Cable
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cryptosporidium is a human pathogen unknown until the mid-1970s; in 1993 0.4 million people were infected in Milwaukee following a water treatment failure, and since then, large outbreaks throughout the developed world (most recently Sweden, 2010) have kept the parasite in the public eye.
  Novel biological control strategies against the Large Pine Weevil (Hylobius abietis)
  Dr C Williams
Application Deadline: 22 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The School of Biological and Environmental Sciences (formerly the School of Natural Sciences and Psychology) is a vibrant school within the Faculty of Science at Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU).
  Schistosome blood flukes and bacteria: How pathogens interact with other pathogens, and the host
  Dr G Gobert, Dr J Megaw
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Parasitic schistosome flukes reside in the blood stream of the host, causing significant chronic disease in hundreds of millions of people in tropical and sub-tropical countries.
