How do evolutionary changes in innate immune genes influence the carriage of zoonotic pathogens

Zoonotic pathogens, such as COVID-19, reside in animal hosts before jumping species to infect humans. How diversity in host immune genes across species impact upon pathogen carriage are poorly understood. Read more

Models for the circulation of zoonotic viruses in bats

Bats are hosts to some of the deadliest zoonotic viruses that have emerged in the last 50 years. Yet little is known about the factors that allow those viruses to persist and circulate in bat populations without making them sick, or about the ecological drivers underlying spatiotemporal variations in spillover risk.

Animal Behaviour Informatics: Automated detection of health and welfare compromises in pigs

Are you interested in developing and using new ways of capturing, processing and understanding the behaviour of animals? This studentship will provide you with interdisciplinary training in the emerging discipline of behavioural informatics. Read more

Evolution of transmissible cancers in Tasmanian devils

Tasmanian devils are marsupial carnivores endemic to the Australian island of Tasmania. This species is affected by two transmissible cancers, known as devil facial tumour 1 (DFT1) and devil facial tumour 2 (DFT2). Read more

Mechanisms of induction of protective lung tissue resident memory cells against influenza

Influenza is a global health threat to humans and livestock and animal influenza viruses are the CDC’s top zoonotic pathogen. There is a critical need to develop vaccines that provide broad protection and decrease the need for annual immunisation. Read more

The PEP talks project: preparing for equine practice

The project. This PhD studentship in pedagogical research will address key gaps in the veterinary education literature and underpin the redesign of Bristol’s equine curriculum to best prepare our students with appropriate knowledge and skills for a career in equine practice. Read more

VULNERABILITY OF AUSTRALIAN BATS TO WHITE-NOSE SYNDROME - HIBERNATION BIOLOGY

About the Project. The Hawkesbury Institute for the Environment (HIE) within Western Sydney University is seeking a PhD candidate for a 3-year PhD program of research to commence in 2021 to investigate the behavioural ecology, energetics and thermal physiology of winter hibernation by Australian cave-roosting bats.
