  Quantifying the effects of environmental change using multi-level phylogenetically controlled meta-analyses
  Dr H Kunc, Dr D Jennings
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Anthropogenically driven environmental changes affect our planet at an unprecedented scale and are considered to be a key threat to a sustainable future.
  Rewiring of host cell protein complexes by pathogen effectors - mass spectrometry-based methods and applications in infection biology
  Dr B Collins, Prof J Bengoechea, Dr G Schroeder
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Bacterial pathogens, such as Klebsiella pneumoniae and Legionella pneumophila, residing inside host immune cells such as macrophages, must subvert host cell defences in order to avoid destruction.
  SAFENUT: Cold plasma as an Intervention technology to ensure a safe and nutritious groundnut supply
  Prof P Bourke, Prof C Elliott, Prof B Gilmore
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L., Peanut) is an important oilseed and food crop, playing a significant role in global food and nutrition security as a source of non-animal protein.
  Schistosome blood flukes and bacteria: How pathogens interact with other pathogens, and the host
  Dr G Gobert, Dr J Megaw
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Parasitic schistosome flukes reside in the blood stream of the host, causing significant chronic disease in hundreds of millions of people in tropical and sub-tropical countries.
  Sleep in the wild: reproductive benefits and health costs of natural sleep deprivation in fallow deer
  Dr I Capellini, Prof E Morgan
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Like us, animals sleep. When sleeping, animals do not perform any of the activities that enhance their chance of survival or reproduction, such as feeding, finding mates or raising offspring.
  Sustainable Wildlife Management: Socio-Economics Drivers & Implications of Conservation
  Dr M Bozzola, Dr J Houghton
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Wildlife conservation of endangered species has been a growing concern all over the world, as human populations grow and their need for space and resources multiplies.
  Systems analysis of the impact of microplastics in the marine environment
  Prof G Hardiman, Dr B Green
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. One Health is an emerging paradigm that recognizes that the health and well-being of humans, animals and ecosystems are interconnected.
  Targeting yeast epigenetics to combat anti-fungal resistance
  Dr E Hyland, Dr C Law
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. One consequence of climate change is the increased incidence of fungal disease, as global temperatures become more aligned with optimal fungal growth conditions.
  Temperature regulation of non-coding RNA and crop - rhizosphere interactions
  Dr J Dalzell, Dr FL Liu
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Crop plants manipulate rhizosphere interactions through the release of root exudates. Whilst root exudates can attract beneficial microbes, they are also exploited by pathogens and plant parasitic nematodes (PPNs).
  The effects of maternal stress on offspring survival in the fallow deer
  Dr D Jennings, Dr I Capellini, Prof J Dick
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. The impact of climate change and human-induced habitat fragmentation has resulted in an unprecedented planet-wide biodiversity crisis.
