  Our Mission: to Educate, Nurture and Discover for the benefit of Human Health

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our ultimate purpose is to work in service of patients. RCSI was founded by Royal Charter on 11th February 1784, to set and support professional standards for surgical training and practice in Ireland.
  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.
  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.
  FULLY FUNDED PHD: Modulating the brain immune response to protect against viral encephalitis and progressive multi-focal leukoencephalopathy
  Dr M Pingen
Application Deadline: 17 February 2020

Funding Type

  Single-cell proteomic analysis of host-factor cleavage during norovirus infection
  Dr E Emmott, Dr M Iturriza
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human norovirus is a major human pathogen, and the causative agent behind ‘winter vomiting disease’. Typically, infection is self-limited, causing diarrhoea and vomiting lasting from 24-72 hours.
  Nanoparticles for elimination of viruses spreading through air, water and bodily fluids
  Dr J Weber
Application Deadline: 23 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Proposed PhD project addresses the problem of the threat of viruses in the environment to the public.
  Structural and time-resolved studies of phage replication in bacterial biofilm
  Dr P Plevka
Application Deadline: 20 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

When Staphylococcus aureus cells form a biofilm in the human body they become shielded from the immune system and highly resistant to antibiotics.
  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.
  Regulation of host cell DNA damage response pathways by adenovirus
  Dr A S Turnell, Dr C McCabe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human adenoviruses are small non-enveloped viruses with a linear, double-stranded DNA genome. Adenovirus has long served as a faithful model for dissecting the molecular basis of key cellular signalling pathways that regulate fundamental biological processes such as cell growth, cell differentiation and cell death.
  EASTBIO Identification of interferon stimulated genes that restrict cross-species transmission of influenza A virus
  Dr F Grey, Dr S Wilson
Application Deadline: 5 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies / The Roslin Institute. Influenza A virus (IAV) causes major epidemic and pandemic outbreaks in humans and important livestock species such as pigs and chickens.
  Innovative Bioinformatics Pipeline Development for Microbiota Analysis
  Dr D H Lunt, Dr A Oates, Prof M Hardman
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent advances in metagenomics, particularly long-read sequencing, are delivering a wealth of new and detailed community level profiling data.

  Prof M Hardman, Dr A Oates
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project is based in Hull York Medical School. The skin is home to diverse communities of microorganisms that display elaborate topographical variation.
  Exosomes in oncolytic virotherapy
  Prof L Seymour, Dr K Fisher
Application Deadline: 3 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

THE PROJECT. Oncolytic viruses promise new opportunities for targeted cancer therapy, but spread of viruses through solid tumour masses is often limited.

  Prof A Townsend
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This started with the investigation of T cell recognition of peptides derived from intracellular proteins of Influenza (Townsend et al 1986), that evolved into the development of a live attenuated, single cycle Influenza vaccine, based on these principles (Powell et al, 2012; Baz et al, 2015, Holzer 2018).
