Evolutionary ecology of parasite- vector interactions: malaria- mosquito interactions

  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
Parasites live in the bodies of others – with whom they are engaged in a life-and-death struggle – yet, how parasites cope with the challenges of their lifestyle is remarkably poorly understood. Read more

  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
Interested individuals must follow the "how to apply" link on the Geosciences E4 Doctoral Training Partnership web page. http://www.ed.ac.uk/e4-dtp/how-to-apply. Read more

Its about time: the evolution and ecology of circadian rhythms in infectious disease

  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
Biological rhythms appear to be an elegant solution to the challenge of coordinating activities with the consequences of the Earth’s daily and seasonal rotation. Read more

Behavioural impact of environmental pollutants and parasites in gammarid amphipods

Project Rationale. Echinogammarus marinus is an ecologically important aquatic invertebrate and a good model for untangling the combined and separate impacts of parasitism and environmental pollutants. Read more

PhD position in theoretical physics/biophysics: how parasites hijack immune cells

Parasites like Toxoplasma gondii hijack immune cells of the infected host and employ them as shuttle for migration. Moreover, parasites even replicate within immune cells, thus turning them into “Trojan horses”. Read more

NERC E4 The pathogen, parasite and parasitoid community of Drosophila

Interested individuals must follow the "how to apply" link on the Geosciences E4 Doctoral Training Partnership web page. http://www.ed.ac.uk/e4-dtp/how-to-apply. Read more

EASTBIO Are chronic infection stage trypanosomes different to acute stage forms?

  Research Group: Institute of Immunology & Infection Research
African trypanosomes are parasites that cause human sleeping sickness and the livestock disease ‘nagana’ in sub Saharan Africa. This causes losses of several billion dollars in agricultural productivity in this region each year. Read more

EASTBIO - Dinoflagellate parasite strategies for success: synchronisation with host (Norway lobster) seasonality and metabolic adaptations

Hematodinium sp. is a dinoflagellate parasite that, from a host range perspective, is a generalist, infecting a variety of wild and commercially very valuable crustacean species (Davies et al., 2019; Wang et al., 2017). Parasites use different life cycle and metabolic adaptations to achieve efficient transmission.

Histone lactylation: a novel epigenetic feature in malaria parasites?

This project will investigate a new epigenetic modification in the human malaria parasite Plasmodium. Epigenetic marks, such as histone acetylation and methylation, play particularly important roles in virulence processes in this parasite – such as the switching and silencing of virulence genes.
