  QUADRAT DTP: Environmental change and the epidemiology of a multi-host pathogen: Leptospira in Africa
  Dr M Moseley, Prof E Morgan
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Multi-host pathogens include some the most important pathogens of livestock and humans. These pathogens are maintained in complex ecological reservoirs that are comprised of epidemiologically connected animal host populations and environments (Viana et al., 2014).
  Investigating a parasite-specific gene expression mechanism for the identification of novel anthelmintic drug targets
  Dr B Mueller, Dr J Pettitt, Dr B Connolly
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nematode parasites remain a major cause of neglected human disease and make significant global impacts on the health of agriculturally important animals and plants.
  FoodBioSystems DTP - Repositioning histone modifying enzyme (HME) inhibitors as next-generation flukicides
  Prof K Hoffman, Prof A Maule, Dr I Chalmers, Dr J Tomczak
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Liver fluke (Fasciola hepatica) infection costs the UK livestock industry >£300m/year. The global impact of liver fluke infection across the livestock sector is estimated at over US$3.2b/year.
  FoodBioSystems DTP - Can many biomarkers make light work of liver fluke parasite diagnostics?
  Dr P McVeigh, Dr R Morphew
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Liver fluke parasites are a pervasive economic threat on UK sheep and cattle farms.
  FoodBioSystems DTP - Integrating plant and animal responses to parasite infection under climate change
  Prof E Morgan, Dr S Stergiadis, Dr K Theodoridou
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Climate change is causing increased unpredictability of parasitic disease in animals, while developing drug resistance limits options for control.
  FoodBioSystems DTP - Willow (Salix spp): The potential of a tannin-rich tree fodder to reduce ammonia emissions and improve productivity of dairy cattle
  Dr K Theodoridou, Dr S Stergiadis, Prof S Huws
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Farm productions systems face multiple challenges as animal products need to be produced with less environmental impact without affecting animal welfare.
  Application of random regression and genomic models to study growth curves in UK beef cattle and sheep and estimate Genotype x Environment interactions
  Dr R Mrode
Application Deadline: 7 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Currently, multivariate systems are utilized for the computation of breeding values in the UK national Beef and Sheep populations but these models are inadequate in modelling the growth curves of animals when multiple weight records have been taken over the life of the animal.
  Identifying pro-viral cellular proteins in chicken cells that can be exploited to better control avian endemic viruses
  Dr A Broadbent, Dr F Grey
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Virus infections are a major threat to the productivity of the poultry industry, and there is considerable investment into better controlling them.
  Modulation of gene regulation in Aedes aegypti upon infection by Wolbachia
  Dr J Krzywinski, Prof S Sinkins
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The mosquito Aedes aegypti is the primary vector of arboviruses that pose a growing threat to global human health.
  Recombinant pseudorabies virus as a multivalent vectored vaccine platform for emerging and endemic porcine diseases
  Prof S Graham, Prof D Werling, Prof T Mettenleiter
Application Deadline: 7 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pseudorabies virus (PrV), the causative agent of the Aujeszky’s disease, is responsible for substantial losses to the expanding pig industry in Southeast Asia.
  Understanding virus-host interactions by analysing diversity in viral and cell populations
  Dr T Tuthill, Prof D Robertson
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A collaboration between The Pirbright Institute and the MRC-University of Glasgow Centre for Virus Research. Many RNA viruses introduce errors in their viral genome during replication.
  (BBSRC DTP) Developing biomarkers of inflammatory gut responses in free-ranging, healthy and diseased equid populations.
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Dr S Shulltz, Prof K Else, Dr S Cruickshank
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In managed horses (and other equids), disorders associated with inflammation in the equine gastrointestinal (GI) tract, including gastric ulcers, high parasite burdens and enteritis/colitis are widepsread health and welfare issues.
  Investigation of antibiotic-resistant bacteria in seafood products and risk of exposure to these by consumers in the UK
  Dr A Mateus, Dr L Guardabassi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A large amount of seafood consumed in the UK are imported from countries outside the EU, where the use of antibiotics is often poorly regulated.
  Metabolic regulation of the RNA methylome (AKAYAU20SCIEC)
  Dr A Akay, Prof T Dalmay
Application Deadline: 30 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Regulation of gene expression is essential for the development and survival of organisms and RNA is at the centre of many gene regulatory processes.
  Our PhD programmes - A World-Class Research Environment
