About the Project
Social and sexual-transmission of infectious disease. Many parasites can be transmitted from host to host via direct contact between individuals (incl. during mating). The PhD project could explore the consequences for parasite virulence, spread, and for the costs of host social and sexual behaviours.
Host-parasite co-adaptation in a warming world. With increased warming and shorter rain periods impacting many parts of the world due to global climate change, the growth of plant-based foods, such as bananas, is being affected. With the Caenorhabditis-Leucobacter system, the PhD project could assess the potential for adaptation of the banana microbiome (and coadaptation within the host-parasite interaction) to different rain schedules and temperatures.
Informal inquiries are welcomed and may be addressed to Prof. Kayla King ([email protected])
