Applications are invited for a prestigious three year Alabama Rot Research Fund, Anderson Moores Veterinary Specialists and the University of Surrey (School of Veterinary Medicine) fully funded PhD studentship, commencing in January 2020.
The project will use state of the art phenotypic and genotypic approaches to study the pathogenesis of Alabama Rot (CRGV), a devastating disease of dogs caused by damage to blood vessels of the skin and kidney, ultimately resulting in kidney failure. The student will work with clinical colleagues to define the role of the microbiome and host factors in the pathogenesis of the disease.
This exceptional research opportunity requires a candidate with an interest in molecular pathogenesis and who has at least a good first degree (2i or above) in a relevant subject such as biology, microbiology, genetics or veterinary medicine. As the project is biased towards microbial sequencing and host cell techniques, evidence of a sound understanding of these procedures would be highly desirable. However, training in microbiology, bioinformatics, molecular biology, cellular pathology, metabolomics and metagenomic approaches will be provided.
The successful applicant will be registered with the University of Surrey and based in the School of Veterinary Medicine with some of the studies undertaken at Anderson Moores Veterinary Specialists in Hampshire.
Funding Fully funded PhD, Stipend of £15,009 p.a.
