  Balancing immunity in the face of variable nutritional resources and natural infection in a wild rodent
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr A Pedersen, Dr S Babayan
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Parasite infections and resource scarcity are common threats to the wellbeing of wild populations and domestic animals. Chronic helminth infections in particular compete with their hosts for nutritional resources, and are a global cause of productivity loss in livestock, estimated at £1.2 billion.
  The ecology of infection and immunity in a wild mouse system
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr A Pedersen, Prof A Fenton
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite great concern about the current global health threat of worms (helminths) in humans and domestic animals, we still don’t have a clear understanding about how ecological heterogeneity determines burdens, disease, or how to successfully control infections in variable populations.
  Evaluation of natural plant based botanicals as alternative to therapeutic antibiotics
  Dr C Situ
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

It has become widely recognised that antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the biggest health threats that mankind faces encompassing huge health and economic burdens on governments and societies in every region of the globe.
  Social and transgenerational effects of parasitism: potential impact in a stored product pest
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr E Cunningham, Prof N Colegrave
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

Summary. This project will investigate the impact of infection on host and non-host members of a population across subsequent generations.
  EASTBIO The genetic basis of helminth-specific immune responses in wild Soay sheep (Ovis aries)
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr S Johnston, Dr T McNeilly, Prof D Nussey
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Individual differences in immune responses are widely observed in nature and are likely to be a major factor underlying variation in disease resistance, health and evolutionary fitness.
  GW4 FRESH CDT studentship: Bacterial fish pathogens: ignored threats for aquaculture and the environment
