  BBSRC DTP targeted studentship - Investigating the role of herpesvirus glycoprotein E in modulation of antiviral host responses and virus spread.
  Dr C Crump
Application Deadline: 3 January 2019
Herpesviruses are highly successful pathogens that cause disease in animals and humans. In particular, the alphaherpesvirus subfamily includes significant veterinary pathogens many of which are designated notifiable diseases by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.
  BBSRC DTP targeted studentship - The role of RNA elements that control protein synthesis during host pathogen interaction
  Dr B Chung, Dr G Fraser, Dr A Firth
Application Deadline: 3 January 2019
Understanding host responses to pathogen infection is critical for guiding the development of intervention strategies. Changes in gene expression are commonly observed upon infection, as exemplified by numerous transcriptomic studies.
  Characterisation of the mechanism of norovirus VPg-dependent RNA synthesis.
  Prof I Goodfellow
Application Deadline: 3 January 2019
Noroviruses have an impact of >$60 billion pa, yet we have no vaccines or therapeutics. This project will use a combination of molecular and biochemical approaches to dissect norovirus VPg-primed RNA synthesis.
  Early PI3-mediated translation response during intracellular bacterial and viral infection
  Dr B Chung
Application Deadline: 3 January 2019
Biotic stresses often occur on short timescales, making rapid response crucial for survival of both host and pathogen. Cells respond to stress by regulating gene expression at multiple steps but especially transcription, translation and protein turnover.
  Investigate the mechanism by which vaccinia virus exploits microtubules to transport new virions to the cell periphery
  Prof G L Smith
Application Deadline: 21 December 2018
Vaccinia virus is the live vaccine that was used to eradicate smallpox. After smallpox eradication, VACV has been exploited to build vaccines against other diseases and continues to be studied to better understand virus interactions with the host cell and the immune system.
  Evolution of Influenza Viruses - prediction of possible future antigenic variants
  Prof D Smith
Applications accepted all year round
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.
