  Development of a single NGS pipeline using a novel universal virus enrichment panel for the detection and typing of viral pathogens.
  Prof L Scobie, Dr R Gunson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project reference number. SHLS19001. Current routine virology diagnostics rely upon serological methods and novel molecular methods such as real time PCR.
  Genomic epidemiology of bovine mastitis pathogens
  Dr G Paterson, Prof R Fitzgerald, Dr A Macrae
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mastitis, inflammation of the mammary gland, is one of the most common and economically important diseases in dairy cattle. Bovine mastitis causes reductions in milk yield and quality and in severe cases the affected animal is culled.
  Wellcome Trust funded four year PhD programme in Hosts, Pathogens and Global Health at the University of Edinburgh

Funding Type

PhD Type

The School of Biological Sciences, in partnership with Edinburgh Infectious Diseases is delighted to open applications to the fifth cohort of students on this Wellcome Trust funded four-year PhD programme.
  Identification of carbohydrate structures expressed by Mycoplasma hyopneunomiae and M.hyorhinis as potential vaccine antigens
  Prof D Werling, Dr J Cuccui
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The proposed project will advance our understanding of Mycoplasma spp interaction with porcine host cells in the initial step of an infection, and how this knowledge can be used to potentially design carbohydrate-based vaccines.
  Impact of multiple biotic and abiotic stressors on pathogenesis in mealworms and wax moths
  Dr H Hesketh, Dr A M Dunn, Assoc Prof N Vitt Meyling
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The objective of this PhD is to investigate how abiotic (climatic changes) and biotic (pathogens) stressors may impact arthropod cultures being reared for food and feed.
  Evolution of Influenza Viruses - prediction of possible future antigenic variants
  Prof D Smith
Application Deadline: 2 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Evolution of Influenza Viruses. Centre for Pathogen Evolution. Department of Zoology. University of Cambridge. Project summary. Our research focus is to design and develop analytical, computational, and mathematical methods to understand the fundamental processes that govern the evolution of influenza viruses.
  Understanding the impact of co-infection on lung immune responses and allergy
  Prof R May, Dr C Pashley, Dr D Cunningham
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

BBSRC Thematic Group. Health. Bovine respiratory syncytial virus (BRSV) affects approximately 1.9 million calves each year in the UK and is considered the most important cause of viral respiratory disease in calves.
  PhD Scholarship in Molecular Virology/Structural Biology
  Dr SS Sarker
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Molecular Virology and Structural Biology is a key driver to understand virus evolution and viral protein/DNA interacting interfaces, which are critical in the viral infection and assembly processes.
