This industry funded PhD Studentship covers a 3.5-year research position in the frame of a 3.5-year PhD doctoral programme. The PhD student will join a large and vibrant research group that includes about 15 full time researchers such as postdocs and other PhD students, with a further 20 researchers within ICARD.
  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.
  Declining Male Fertility: Investigations of plausible environmental risk factors in the Racehorse Breeding Stallion
  Dr R Sumner
Application Deadline: 7 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this studentship is to assess the fertility potential of breeding stallions and explore a possible environmental aetiology.
  Evaluating musical performance and coordination using interaction data in participants with autistic spectrum disorder
  Prof S Draper
Application Deadline: 7 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this studentship is to investigate the effects of musical practice on brain development, through the development of analytical tools and performance metrics for musical practice, supporting comparisons with biomedical data.
  Exploring the interplay between stockpeople and consumers on the future of dairy (cows), and their welfare.
  Dr V Melfi
Application Deadline: 7 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Historically agriculture has been shaped by demands for greater production at lower cost. It has been suggested that these selection pressures have been shaped by consumers’ buying habits; who preferentially choose cheap food.
  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.
  Linking sex-specific adaptation to 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.
  Some like it hot: how mismatch between host and pathogen thermal ecology influences 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.
  Evolutionary ecology of bumble bees and their parasites
  Prof M Brown
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research in my group addresses questions about the evolutionary ecology of host-parasite associations, using bumble bees as hosts and their natural complement of parasites.
