We are inviting applications for a 3-4 year PhD student in the area of bioinformatics and evolutionary genomics of endogenous Human Herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6).
  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.
  Novel autophagy pathways for the control of influenza virus infection (WILEMANQ20DTP)
  Prof T Wileman
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The recent outbreaks of avian influenza and the threat of a human influenza pandemic has highlighted the need to understand prevention and control of this virus by developing effective antiviral therapies.
  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.
  Structural study of enterovirus replication in vivo
  Dr P Plevka
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Viruses from the Enterovirus genus belong to the family Picornaviridae of human and vertebrate pathogens. Diseases caused by enteroviruses range from upper and lower respiratory tract infections to life-threatening encephalitis.
  Phages in the infant gut: good, bad or neutral? (ADRIAENSSENSQ20DTP1)
  Dr E Adriaenssens
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacteriophages are the most abundant biological entity on the planet. They can be beneficial for human health by killing off pathogenic bacteria, but phages that integrate into the bacterial chromosome can also be detrimental to human health, by encoding genes that make the bacteria more virulent.
  Understanding influenza-induced long-term changes to lung immunity
  Dr A Wack
Application Deadline: 12 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4-year PhD studentship is offered in Dr Andreas Wack’s Group based at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick). The Wack lab is interested in influenza virus infection, a disease of major public health impact whose severity ranges from mild cold-like symptoms to necessity of hospitalisation and death.
  (MRC DTP) Longitudinal interactions between the respiratory metagenome and immune fitness
  Prof N Papadopoulos, Dr T Gilman
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

An increasing body of evidence is linking microbiome composition with human health. Chronic inflammatory diseases, such as allergy and asthma, have been associated with dysbiotic microbiomes at both the gut and the respiratory niches.
  Evolution of Influenza Viruses - prediction of possible future antigenic variants
  Prof D Smith
Application Deadline: 2 January 2020

Funding Type
