  Examining the Potential of C-type Lectin-like Receptors (CLRs) as Immunotherapy Targets
  Research Group: Centre for Experimental Medicine
  Dr S Orr
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
Invasive fungal infections kill more people per year than TB or malaria. Immunosuppressed patients (cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy, acute myeloid leukaemia, HIV, bone marrow transplant patients) are at high risk of developing invasive fungal infections.
  Distribution modelling and the management and conservation of European ectomycorrhizal communities
  Dr M Bidartondo, Dr G Powney, Dr C D L Orme
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
In this project, the student will develop cutting-edge distributional models of dominant ectomycorrhizal (ECM) fungal species across Europe and establish vital practice and policy recommendations for the monitoring, management and conservation of these ecologically critical organisms.
  Development of CRISPR-Cas and LAMP diagnostics to inform plant disease management
  Dr J Tovar, Dr L Bindschedler
Application Deadline: 15 February 2019
Fungal infections are a major threat to food security worldwide. In the UK alone, Septoria wheat leaf blotch – a fungal disease caused by Zymoseptoria tritici – and oilseed rape phoma leafspot and stem canker, diseases caused by the fungi Leptosphaeria maculans and L.
  Use of novel technologies for reasoned identification of antifungal drug targets: sulphur metabolism in Aspergillus fumigatus.
  Prof E Bignell, Dr J Amich
Applications accepted all year round
Fungal diseases kill more than 1.5 million and affect over a billion people worldwide. Azoles are the only orally available antifungals and resistance to these drugs is increasing, which translates into a rise in mortality.
  Understanding resistance and tolerance to chytrid fungal disease in amphibians to improve conservation
  Dr L Grogan, Prof H McCallum
Applications accepted all year round
Wildlife are in peril. Chytridiomycosis (caused by aquatic fungal agent Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis) is the most devastating disease threat to biodiversity ever recorded.
  Tackling the fungal threat to global food security
  Prof S Avery, Dr M Brock
Applications accepted all year round
Fungi cause diseases of crops and spoilage of foods that cause losses of up to a third of food yield. This is a major global challenge given the world’s growing population and need for more food, while climate change is predicted to limit food supply in the future.
  Using machine learning to predict post-storage apple fruit quality with microbiomes, climatic and imagery information (Ref: CTP_FCR_2019_1)
  Prof X Xu, Dr B Li, Prof X Hong
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
The Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC ) have awarded a Collaborative Training Partnership (CTP) grant to a consortium led by Berry Gardens Growers Ltd and NIAB EMR.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Determination of how killer pathogenic fungi evade human innate immune defences
  Prof J Quinn, Dr S Johnston
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
More people die from fungal infections than from malaria, tuberculosis, or ‘superbugs’ such as MRSA. Candida species are an important group of human fungal pathogens causing over 400,000 life threatening infections per year.
  Elucidating the pathobiology of Candida albicans
  Dr R Hall
Applications accepted all year round
The Hall lab is interested in understanding the biology and virulence factors of fungal pathogens. Our research largely focuses on the opportunistic fungal pathogen Candida albicans, which causes a range of infections from superficial mucosal infections (i.e.
  (BBSRC DTP) Improving phosphorus use management in UK grasslands through soil-plant interactions
  Dr V Niasar, Prof D Johnson, Dr S Lee
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This ambitious project will lead to a major shift in how soil phosphorus (P), is managed in UK grasslands.
