  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.
  Our Mission: to Educate, Nurture and Discover for the benefit of Human Health

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our ultimate purpose is to work in service of patients. RCSI was founded by Royal Charter on 11th February 1784, to set and support professional standards for surgical training and practice in Ireland.
  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.
  Molecular characterization of Cryptosporidium parvum anthroponosum – a new threat to world health. (TylerKU19SF)
  Dr K Tyler, Prof N Hall
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human cryptosporidiosis is the leading protozoan cause of diarrhoeal mortality worldwide, and most infection is caused by either person to person transmitted Cryptosporidium hominis or the presumptively zoonotic C.
  Investigating a parasite-specific gene expression mechanism for the identification of novel anthelmintic drug targets
  Dr B Mueller, Dr J Pettitt, Dr B Connolly
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nematode parasites remain a major cause of neglected human disease and make significant global impacts on the health of agriculturally important animals and plants.
  Chemical and enzymatic tools for pathogen glycobiology
  Prof R Field, Prof S Flitsch
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Dual-award between The University of Manchester and The University of Melbourne. This dual-award programme offers candidates the opportunity to apply for a project with a strong supervisory team both in Manchester and in Melbourne.
  Resolving the spatiotemporal events controlling effector T cell responses during malaria (Manchester-Melbourne Dual Award)
  Dr K Couper, Prof A MacDonald
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Malaria remains one of the most important diseases in the world, responsible for hundreds of thousands of deaths and significant morbidity and suffering in many millions of people, each year.
  Identification of the Trypanosoma brucei transferrin receptor-recognition site of transferrin (SteverdingDU19SF)
  Dr D Steverding
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The transferrin receptor of the protozoan parasite Trypanosoma brucei (TbTfR) is a heterodimeric protein complex encoded by two expression site associated genes, ESAG6 and ESAG7, which shows no homology to the homodimeric human transferrin receptor (hTfR).
  Iron Biology
  Prof H Drakesmith, Dr O Bannard
Application Deadline: 24 July 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.
