WE ARE HIRING - PhD Studentship in Molecular Virology of Tick-borne encephalitis viruses

Sun, 14 November 2021


We are recruiting for a PhD studentship based at UKHSA in Portdon Down and registered at the University of Liverpool for a study of Molecular Virology of Tick-borne encephalitis viruses. This studentship will utilise recombinant virology techniques to study the pathogenicity of tickborne encephalitis virus (TBEV) and support TBEV bio surveillance programmes. TBEV is an emerging public health threat across Europe and Asia, with the expansion of risk areas into new regions and the emergence of new endemic areas. Studying virus pathogenicity and prevalence is therefore an essential component of the ongoing public health response. Project work will build new capability to tackle the current threat and develop means to investigate other emerging tick borne flaviviruses.
