  Exploring relationships between Wild house mouse ecology and immunology
  Prof J Bradley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding the causes of variability in the immune systems response underpins our knowledge of disease susceptibility, control of infectious diseases and ultimately, healthy aging.
  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.
  EASTBIO: Resistance in Crop Roots: Functional Analysis of the H2-Meditated Response to Nematodes
  Dr S Mantelin, Prof J Jones
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Resistance genes provide plants with protection against a range of pathogens. Despite their use in crop breeding programmes, our knowledge of how plant resistance genes function is still sketchy and mainly based on studies in leaves rather than roots.
  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.
  EASTBIO Molecular basis of environmental sensing in fungi and protozoan parasites
  Research Group: Institute of Immunology & Infection Research
  Dr J Thompson, Dr J Baranovic, Dr E Wallace
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many of the unicellular eukaryotic parasites that cause disease in humans are exquisitely adapted to navigate the complex and dynamic environments that they encounter in their hosts in order to sustain their life cycles and spread infection.
  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.
  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.
  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.
