  BBSRC SWBio DTP studentship: Mixing it up: building the tools required for next-generation molecular microbiologists to study polymicrobial disease
  Prof E Mahenthiralingam
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over the last two decades it has become clear that multiple diseases such as lung infections in people with cystic fibrosis are caused by a community of microorganisms (the microbiota), rather than a single pathogen in isolation.

  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.
  Are bee viruses driving heritable symbiont success?
  Dr M Gerth, Dr S Thompson, Dr M D Santos-Nunes, Dr A Jones
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oxford Brookes University. Faculty of Health and Life Sciences,. Department of Biomedical and Medical Sciences. 3 Year, full-time PhD studentship.
  (MRC DTP) Image analysis and software development to study tissue repair using artificial intelligence (AI)
  Dr S Kurinna, Dr Claudia Lindner, Prof T Cootes
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Trauma and surgery require efficient restoration of skin, making wound healing a central concern of clinical care worldwide. Large-area wounds, congenital defects of the skin, diabetes and cancer can lead to the loss of the epidermal barrier, which protects our body from pathogens, irradiation, and water loss.
  The ecology of infection and immunity in a wild mouse system
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr A Pedersen, Prof A Fenton
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite great concern about the current global health threat of worms (helminths) in humans and domestic animals, we still don’t have a clear understanding about how ecological heterogeneity determines burdens, disease, or how to successfully control infections in variable populations.
  Antibiotic exposure impacts on fish health in natural freshwaters. PhD in Biosciences (NERC FRESH)
  Prof C R Tyler
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead supervisor. Professor Charles Tyler, Department of Biosciences, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter.
