PhD studentship & fellowship opportunities

We're proud to help train the next generation of conservation scientists.

(BBSRC DTP CASE) Surface modification of materials for control of beak and feather disease virus (BFDV) in a wild population of endangered parakeets

The studentship is with The University of Manchester.

In this project you will design and synthesise antivirals that are effective against BFDV and test these on samples collected from a wild population of the Echo parakeet. You will then deploy these materials in a natural laboratory for field trials to study the in-situ effects of such materials.
