Showing 1 to 10 of 33
  Causes and consequences of microbiome variation in the water vole Arvicola amphibius
  Prof S Piertney, Dr S Helyar
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Gut microbiomes are increasingly recognised for having a major influence on host health, fitness, reproductive success, development and behaviour.
  Spatio-temporal dynamics of plague vectors in Madagascar: using population genetics and landscape scale modelling to inform disease reduction strategies
  Dr S Telfer, Dr S Helyar
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Many emerging diseases are zoonotic (transmitted from animal to human), with human exposure typically higher in low income countries.
  Living in the dark: Impact of winter warming on ecosystem stability in the terrestrial high Arctic
  Prof D Chadwick
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
The high Arctic is warming at an alarming rate, disrupting soil carbon, nutrient and hydrological cycles. This is resulting in increased soil microbial activity with subsequent increases in nutrient availability and hence plant productivity and nutrient losses to the wider environment.
  In silico modelling of parasite dynamics
  Prof O Jones
Applications accepted all year round
The management of infectious disease is a major concern for conservation of wild fish stocks and is a primary constraint on the viability and sustainability of farmed fish.
  PhD/Graduate Teaching Assistants (GTAs) – Biology
A fantastic opportunity to study for a fully funded doctorate whilst gaining valuable teaching experience. Graduate Teaching Assistants hold a unique position in the University, being both registered students and carrying out teaching/teaching support duties.
  Transcription control and immune evasion in African trypanosomes
  Research Group: Division of Cell & Molecular Biology
  Prof G Rudenko
Applications accepted all year round
Trypanosomes are unicellular eukaryotes which cause African Sleeping Sickness, which is endemic to subSaharan Africa. Trypanosomes can be easily grown as suspension cell lines in the laboratory, where they are straightforward to manipulate and genetically modify.
  Towards multiplexed in vivo phenotypic screening to improve antimicrobial drug discovery
  Dr M Child
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Antimicrobial-resistant infections are prevalent worldwide, with drug-resistant strains emerging for all currently available antimicrobial drugs and the burden of disease estimated to be ~50,000 deaths/year in Europe and North America.
  Molecular regulation of surface remodelling in the human pathogen Schistosoma mansoni
  Prof A Walker
Applications accepted all year round
In this PhD project you will perform cutting edge research that aims to identify molecular signalling events that underpin the survival of schistosomes in their human host.
  The Oxford Interdisciplinary Bioscience Doctoral Training Partnership
The Oxford Interdisciplinary Bioscience Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) programme is a 4-year DPhil*/PhD programme that aims to equip a new generation of researchers with the skills and knowledge needed to tackle the most important challenges in bioscience research.
  Grassland parasites and community dynamics under climate warming
  Prof E Morgan, Dr L Lancaster
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project will be supervised by Professor Eric Morgan of Queen’s University School of Biological Sciences, Dr Lesley Lancaster of University of Aberdeen School of Biological Sciences, and Dr Thomas Fleming of the Agri-Food and Biosciences Institute.
