  Exposing drivers for parasite growth and virulence at the single cell level
  Prof A Maule, Dr P McVeigh, Dr N Marks
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Parasites infect one third of the human population, causing staggering levels of morbidity. They also blight food production systems by undermining plant and animal health globally.
  How does Clostridium difficile control the gut microbiome? Molecular dissection of nutrient control strategies
  Prof G McMullan, Dr B Graham, Prof J Mcgrath
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Clostridium difficile is a Gram positive, spore forming, anaerobic bacterium that is the main cause of hospital-acquired and antibiotic-associated diarrhoea.
  Precision Medicine DTP - How do IFITM proteins regulate the Interferon Related DNA-damage Resistance Signature (IRDS) and clinical outcomes in cancers of high unmet clinical need?
  Dr R Sloan, Prof K Ball, Dr S Wilson
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Interferon Induced Transmembrane proteins (IFITMs) are a family of innate immune membrane proteins that can inhibit viral infection at cell entry (e.g.
  Control and inhibition of virus replication
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr A.K Tuplin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type


The Tuplin laboratory utilises a range of cutting-edge approaches to investigate how arboviruses - specificaly Chikungunya, Dengue and Zika viruses - control replication and translation of their genomes through interactions between RNA structures, host cell proteins and non-coding RNA, and the potential of such RNA elements/interactions as novel therapeutic targets.
  Defining a novel assembly pathway in ssRNA viruses using X-ray footprinting.
  Prof P G Stockley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project co-supervised by Prof. Peter Stockley at Leeds and Prof. Reidun Twarock at University of York, as part of the White Rose network "Structural and Mechanistic Biology at the RNA/Ligand Interface".
  Enhanced surveillance for foot-and-mouth disease using field-based viral sequencing
  Dr M Bronsvoort
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) remains an important disease in low and middle-income countries (LMICs), as well as representing a continuous threat to disease free countries such the UK.
  Gene editing for resistance to Foot and Mouth Disease Virus using genome wide CRISPR Cas9 screens
  Dr F Grey, Prof J Haas
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) imposes a significant burden on global agriculture of cattle, pigs, sheep and other livestock. Foot-and-mouth-disease is caused by a picornavirus with 7 distinct serotypes and remains endemic in large parts of the world.
  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.
  How genome composition of a virus impacts virus-host interaction
  Dr E Gaunt, Dr F Grey
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The genome compositions of RNA viruses have, through evolution, been fine tuned to mimic genome signatures of the hosts they infect.
