  PhD Scholarship in Neuroecology - Investigating the neural bases of animal behaviour in the context of its habitat and ecology.
  Prof S P Collin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our Research Laboratory lies at the intersection of two major fields of biology (Neurobiology. the study of the nervous system, and Ecology.
  Local gene drives for mosquitoes
  Dr M Anderson, Dr R Noad, Prof L Alphey
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD studentship funded by The Pirbright Institute is available to highly motivated students interested in genetic control of mosquitoes.
  Understanding the importance of the PI3K pathway in modulating influenza virus replication in chickens and ducks
  Dr H Shelton, Dr S Dunham
Application Deadline: 9 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Avian influenza virus (AIV) is a pathogen that causes significant economic and welfare issues for the poultry industry. In addition, there is the additional concern that avian influenza strains may be able to cross the species barrier and infect humans.
  Unravelling the mechanism of viral factory formation. An unexplored target for the development of novel antivirals (fully funded PhD).
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr A Calabrese
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Viral replication factories (sites of viral replication/assembly) are formed when a number of important human and animal pathogens infect cells, including influenza, rabies, measles and rotavirus.
  Protein Misfolding and the Molecular Basis of Alzheimer’s Disease
  Dr J Viles
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. World-wide one in three people over the age of 65 will die with Alzheimer’s Disease (AD). The disease is characterised by deposits of amyloid plaques and fibrils of amyloid-beta peptide (Ab) are their main constituent.
  Developing a virus-like particle (VLP) Polio vaccine
  Dr G Mulley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Rationale. Poliovirus is a non-enveloped RNA virus, spread via the faecal-oral route, that causes the infectious disease Poliomyelitis (Polio).
  Control and inhibition of virus replication
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr A.K Tuplin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type


The Tuplin laboratory utilises a range of cutting-edge approaches to investigate how arboviruses - specificaly Chikungunya, Dengue and Zika viruses - control replication and translation of their genomes through interactions between RNA structures, host cell proteins and non-coding RNA, and the potential of such RNA elements/interactions as novel therapeutic targets.
  Defining a novel assembly pathway in ssRNA viruses using X-ray footprinting.
  Prof P G Stockley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project co-supervised by Prof. Peter Stockley at Leeds and Prof. Reidun Twarock at University of York, as part of the White Rose network "Structural and Mechanistic Biology at the RNA/Ligand Interface".
  Epigenetics and Cancer: Determining how Mistakes in V(D)J Recombination Trigger Leukaemias and Lymphomas
  Research Group: School of Molecular and Cellular Biology
  Dr J Boyes
Application Deadline: 1 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

V(D)J recombination is essential to produce an effective adaptive immune system but since the reaction involves the breakage and rejoining of DNA, it is highly dangerous and errors have long been thought to lead to leukaemias and lymphomas.
  EPSRC CASE PhD studentship: Novel high-throughput approaches for the rapid analysis of target engagement by mass spectrometry (collaboration with Medicines Discovery Catapult)
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Prof F. Sobott, Dr J.R. Ault
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ability to provide fast and efficient readouts for drug engagement with targets (proteins and oligonucleotides) is a key driving technology in the biopharma pipeline, e.g.
