  QUADRAT DTP: Functional parasite epigenomics and transcriptomics for improving honey-bee health in a global pollination crisis
  Dr M Wenzel, Dr C Meharg
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pollination is an immensely important ecosystem service that not only contributes to maintaining biodiversity in wild ecosystems but is also indispensable for meeting ever-increasing demands on agriculture to sustain global food security.
  PhD in Cancer Virotherapies - Development of precision virotherapies capable of evading anti-vector immunity.
  Dr A Parker, Prof A Gallimore
Application Deadline: 14 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The use of “oncolytic” viruses has immense potential in the cancer setting where the therapeutic self-amplifies, through replication, at the site of need (i.e.
  PhD in Cancer Virotherapies - Novel strategies for developing tumour selective virotherapies.
  Dr A Parker, Prof P Rizkallah
Application Deadline: 14 February 2020

  Transmission of HEV: risk from the environment and waste water in Scotland
  Dr C Hunter, Dr C Crossan, Prof L Scobie
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCEBE-19-027. In Scotland, the number of Hepatitis E virus (HEV) infections are increasing yearly, since 2011 laboratory confirmed cases have increased 15-fold.
  Potential therapeutic effects of natural products in Human Papillomavirus (HPV) related cervical cancers
  Dr H Ashrafi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cervical cancer is one of the most common types of cancer affecting women worldwide. Infection caused by high-risk human papillomaviruses (HPVs), especially type 16 and 18 are implicated in the etiology of most cervical cancers.
  Development of gene therapies for muscular dystrophies
  Dr L Popplewell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The activities in the Popplewell lab focus on the development of pre-clinical gene therapies for neuromuscular diseases, in particular muscular dystrophies based on gene replacement, endonuclease-mediated gene editing, antisense oligonucleotide (AO)-induced exon skipping and gene sliencing.
  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) Understanding and predicting evolutionary change in HIV
  Prof S Lovell, Dr C Walton, Prof S Griffiths-Jones
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our overall aim is to understand viral evolution, and the limitations on evolution that arise from the viral genome, proteome and structure-function relationships.
  Investigating virus-host interactions in the killer yeast system (Manchester-Melbourne Dual Award)
  Dr J-M Schwartz
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fungi, like all living organisms, may be infected by viruses, obligate intracellular parasites that hijack the host cell machinery in order to replicate.
  Multi-scale network reconstruction and modelling of phage – bacteria interactions
  Dr J-M Schwartz, Prof S Lovell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacteriophages are viruses that infect bacteria. They are seen as a promising alternative to antibiotics, particularly as multi-resistant bacterial strains are becoming more widespread and could one day render existing antibiotic therapies ineffective.
  Adaptation to oxidative stress in hepatitis C virus persistence: the role of IRES-dependent translation.
  Dr S-W Chan, Prof R Ford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) causes a clinically important disease affecting 3% of the world population (Chan 2014). About 75% of the infection will develop into chronic hepatitis, which can then progress into fibrosis, cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma.
  The respiratory metagenome during exacerbations of asthma
  Prof N Papadopoulos, Prof D Robertson, Dr S Megremis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Asthma is an international pandemic, with 10% or more of the global population having experience asthma symptoms some time in life.
