  How regulatory immunological cues (re)programme cellular metabolism to control effector T cell behaviour and function
  Dr K Couper, Prof R K Grencis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Upon activation a T cell transitions from a state of semi-quiescence to a state of high activity. During the process of activation the T cell therefore needs to up regulate metabolic pathways to acquire the energy and nutrients required to facilitate the behavioural changes associated with its new functional state.
  (BBSRC DTP) Developing a whipworm vaccine composed of virus-like particles expressing Trichuris T cell epitopes
  Prof K Else, Prof J P Derrick
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Vaccination is one of the greatest advances in global health; however most successful vaccines have been made empirically. We still have little insight into how many vaccines work and the mechanisms by which they trigger protective immune responses.
  The Eco-Immunology of Wild Mice
  Prof M Viney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The immune responses that wild animals make contribute to their fitness, but what those immune responses are – and how they differ from those of laboratory animals – is hardly known.
  Environmental control of dendritic cell activation and function during pulmonary type 2 inflammation
  Prof A MacDonald, Prof J Allen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Type 2 inflammation is a defining feature of infection with parasitic worms (helminths), as well as being responsible for widespread suffering in allergies.
  Cloning and expression of topoisomerase genes from Trypanosoma brucei (SteverdingD-2U19SF)
  Dr D Steverding
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Topoisomerases (TOPs) are essential enzymes that catalysis topological changes in DNA. TOPs are pivotal to cell survival and therefore inhibitors have been developed to target these enzymes both for antimicrobial and anti-cancer chemotherapy.
  China Scholarship Council - Decoding gene expression mechanisms in trypanosomes
  Prof D Horn, Prof M Field
Application Deadline: 15 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The School of Life Sciences at the University of Dundee, joint with the China Scholarship Council (CSC), is proud to be able to offer a scholarship programme for postgraduate research students.
  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.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Approaches to detect and block transition stages in Trypanosoma brucei
  Research Group: Institute of Infection, Immunity & Inflammation
  Dr T Otto, Dr R McCulloch
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisors. Dr Thomas Otto. Prof Richard McCulloch. Prof Keith Matthews. Project summary. Trypanosomatids are a grouping of single-celled parasites belonging to the order Kinetoplastea.
  Iron Biology
  Prof H Drakesmith, Dr O Bannard
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We study how iron and anaemia influence immunity and infectious diseases. Our research inspires therapies that control iron physiology to improve immunity, combat infections and treat disorders of iron metabolism.
