  PhD Student Positions at International Max Planck Research School for Molecular Life Sciences, Munich

Funding Type

PhD Type

The International Max Planck Research School for Molecular Life Sciences. From Biological Structures to Neural Circuits (IMPRS-LS) currently has an open call for fully funded PhD student positions.
  Some like it hot: how mismatch between host and pathogen thermal ecology influences adaptation to global change
  Dr M Hall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Global change is predicted to result in both rapidly changing environments and dramatic changes in disease outbreaks. Key to predicting winners and losers under the nexus of infection and global change is any mismatch between hosts and pathogens in their thermal tolerances and adaptive potential.
  The role of endogenous retroviruses in human health and disease
  Dr G Magiorkinis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

More than 10 years have passed since the first high quality (nearly) complete version of the human genome and we are still exploring its functionality.
  The diversity of transmission pathways for Ross River virus
  Dr F Frentiu, Prof G Devine
Application Deadline: 20 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ross River virus (RRV) is a single-stranded RNA virus belonging to the Alphavirus genus. It causes debilitating arthritogenic disease and accounts for the highest number of arbovirus disease notifications in Australia (ca.
  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.
  Engineering genetic systems for control of Anopheles stephensi (Ref: 2019-21LA)
  Prof L Alphey, Dr R Noad
Application Deadline: 27 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

A 3.5-year PhD studentship, fully funded by The Pirbright Institute and registered with the Royal Veterinary College of the University of London, is available to a highly motivated student interested in the genetic control of mosquitoes.
  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.
  Virus pathogenesis: interplay between the unfolded protein response and innate immunity.
  Dr S-W Chan, Prof R Ford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The unfolded protein response (UPR) is a cellular homeostatic response in restoring endoplasmic reticulum balance upon stress conditions e.g.
  Complement resistance mechanisms by multi-drug resistant Klebsiella pneumonia
  Prof S Rooijakkers, Prof A Blom
Application Deadline: 10 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to characterize complement evasion molecules in the opportunistic bacterium Klebsiella pneumoniae (K. pneumoniae) where carbapenem-resistance grew from 1.6% to 10.4% in 10 years.
  Understanding the role of Epstein Barr virus in gastric carcinoma
  Dr C Shannon-Lowe, Dr G S Taylor
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

BACKGROUND. Epstein Barr virus is a common herpesvirus that is strongly associated with the pathogenesis of at least seven different cancers.
  Elucidating the mechanisms of phospholipid transport in Gram-negative bacteria
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr T Knowles
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project focuses on characterising the fundamental process of outer membrane lipid transport in Gram-negative bacteria, a largely unknown process which is only now being revealed.
  PhD studentship in Viral Immunology: role of T and NK cells in dengue virus infection
  Dr L Rivino
Application Deadline: 30 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project description. We are offering a 3-year funded PhD position to study the role of human T and NK cell immunity during infection with dengue virus (DENV), a flavivirus that is transmitted by infected Aedes mosquitoes.
  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.
  PhD Studentship Opportunity
  Dr L Lione
Application Deadline: 11 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University invites applications for a PhD student to join our Hertfordshire Knowledge Exchange Partnership (HKEP) scheme. This four-year project requires a PhD student to undertake a collaborative research project with support from University academic supervisor(s) and company scientists.
