  QUADRAT DTP: Environmental change and the epidemiology of a multi-host pathogen: Leptospira in Africa
  Dr M Moseley, Prof E Morgan
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Multi-host pathogens include some the most important pathogens of livestock and humans. These pathogens are maintained in complex ecological reservoirs that are comprised of epidemiologically connected animal host populations and environments (Viana et al., 2014).
  QUADRAT DTP: Functional parasite epigenomics and transcriptomics for improving honey-bee health in a global pollination crisis
  Dr M Wenzel, Dr C Meharg
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pollination is an immensely important ecosystem service that not only contributes to maintaining biodiversity in wild ecosystems but is also indispensable for meeting ever-increasing demands on agriculture to sustain global food security.
  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.
  FoodBioSystems DTP - Repositioning histone modifying enzyme (HME) inhibitors as next-generation flukicides
  Prof K Hoffman, Prof A Maule, Dr I Chalmers, Dr J Tomczak
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Liver fluke (Fasciola hepatica) infection costs the UK livestock industry >£300m/year. The global impact of liver fluke infection across the livestock sector is estimated at over US$3.2b/year.
  Disrupting the regulatory mechanisms that allow hospital acquired infections to resist antibiotic therapy.
  Dr R McCarthy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The discovery of penicillin over 90 years ago and its subsequent uptake by healthcare systems around the world revolutionised global health and wellbeing.
  Understanding resistance and tolerance to chytrid fungal disease in amphibians to improve conservation
  Dr L Grogan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project will involve working with captive animals (Australian barred frogs and tadpoles, including the endangered Fleay’s barred frog) to understand host responses to infection and mechanisms of resistance and tolerance to the devastating fungal disease, frog chytridiomycosis.
  Transcription control and immune evasion in African trypanosomes
  Research Group: Division of Cell & Molecular Biology
  Prof G Rudenko
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Trypanosomes are unicellular eukaryotes which cause African Sleeping Sickness, which is endemic to subSaharan Africa. Trypanosomes can be easily grown as suspension cell lines in the laboratory, where they are straightforward to manipulate and genetically modify.
  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.
  Infectious disease and adaptation to global change
  Dr M Hall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Global change is predicted to result in both rapidly changing environments and dramatic changes in disease outbreaks. Key to predicting winners and losers under the nexus of infection and global change is any mismatch between hosts and pathogens in their thermal tolerances and adaptive potential.
  Male-female differences the evolution of infectious disease
  Dr M Hall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The science that guides our understanding of health and infectious disease routinely overlooks the pervading impact of sex.
