  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.
  How does Vaccinia virus evade detection by the innate immune system?
  Dr L Unterholzner, Dr M Munir
Application Deadline: 2 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Most of our cells are able to detect when they have been infected by a virus.
  The respiratory metagenome during exacerbations of asthma
  Prof N Papadopoulos, Prof D Robertson, Dr S Megremis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Asthma is an international pandemic, with 10% or more of the global population having experience asthma symptoms some time in life.
  PhD-position
  Prof L Dölken
Application Deadline: 1 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

At the Institute for Virology and Immunology of the University of Wuerzburg, Germany we offer a. PhD-position. within the RTG2581 (Metabolism, topology and compartmentalization of membrane proximal lipid and signalling components in infection (https://www.uni-wuerzburg.de/grk2581) starting 01.04.2020.
  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.
  Employing molecular virology to investigate hepatitis E virus replication (fully-funded PhD)
  Research Group: School of Molecular and Cellular Biology
  Dr M.R. Herod, Prof M Harris
Application Deadline: 27 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hepatitis E virus (HEV), is a major causative agent of acute, severe hepatitis. The infection can also be chronic, particular in immunocompromised people, and fatal in pregnant women or those with existing liver diseases.
  The Eco-Immunology of Wild Mice
  Prof M Viney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The immune responses that wild animals make contribute to their fitness, but what those immune responses are – and how they differ from those of laboratory animals – is hardly known.
  Baculovirus P10 and microtubules; the role of P10 in virus-induced nuclear lysis with possible applications for novel anti-cancer therapies
  Prof L A King, Dr V Bolanos-Garcia
Application Deadline: 20 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oxford Brookes University. Faculty of Health and Life Sciences,. Department of Biological and Medical Sciences. 3.5 year, full-time PhD iCASE studentship.
  Synthetic Virology: Development of gene delivery vectors/synthetic vaccines
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Prof P G Stockley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is worldwide interest in exploiting our modern understanding of genomics to target gene expression therapeutically via a variety of mechanisms, such as transgene insertion and CRISPR-Cas gene editing.
  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.
  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.
  Developing a virus-like particle (VLP) Polio vaccine
  Dr G Mulley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Rationale. Poliovirus is a non-enveloped RNA virus, spread via the faecal-oral route, that causes the infectious disease Poliomyelitis (Polio).
  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.
  Infectious disease and 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.
  Bacterial-derived magnetosomes as nanocarriers for cancer-killing oncolytic viruses.
  Dr M Muthana, Dr F Howard
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Dysfunctional cellular processes that are the markers of neoplasms provide the ideal environment for viral infection including sustained proliferation and resistance to cell death.
