  Point-of-care diagnosis of opportunistic fungal infections using innovative molecular biosensors.
  Dr J Tovar
Applications accepted all year round
Human fungal infections have emerged as one of the most pressing global health problems in recent years.
  A state-of-the-art effector trap to identify secreted effectors of tissue invasion in the major fungal pathogen of human lungs
  Prof E Bignell, Dr J Amich, Dr A Reid
Applications accepted all year round
The often-fatal fungal lung disease invasive aspergillosis (IA) has claimed more than 8 million human lives since its emergence ~ 40 years ago.
  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.
  Surfing the surface: Hydrophobins on fungal hyphae
  Prof E. Kothe, Prof J Gershenzon, Dr A Svatos
Application Deadline: 24 May 2019
Background. Fungal hyphae can grow from the water phase into the air. To achieve that, hydrophobins are covering the fungal cell wall in aerial mycelium.
  Using machine learning to predict post-storage fruit quality with surface microbiomes, climatic and imaging data (Ref: CTPFCR20191)
  Prof X Xu, Dr B Li, Prof X Hong
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
This student is to be registered with University of Reading with a team of three supervisors. Prof Xiangming Xu (NIAB EMR), Dr Bo Li (NIAB EMR), and Prof Xia Hong (University of Reading).
  Deciphering Aspergillus fumigatus - Pseudomonas aeruginosa synergistic interactions in coinfection
  Dr J Amich, Prof E Bignell, Dr S Fowler
Applications accepted all year round
Pathogen-pathogen interactions in polymicrobial infections are known to directly impact, often to worsen, disease outcomes. Aspergillus fumigatus is the most common fungal pathogen and Pseudomonas aeruginosa one of the most prevalent bacterial pathogens of the human lung.
  Using machine learning to predict post-storage fruit quality with surface microbiomes, climatic and imaging data (Ref: CTPFCR20191)
  Prof X Xu, Dr B Li, Prof X Hong
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
This student is to be registered with University of Reading with a team of three supervisors. Prof Xiangming Xu (NIAB EMR), Dr Bo Li (NIAB EMR), and Prof Xia Hong (University of Reading).

  Functional analysis of fungal effector proteins in the barley/wheat powdery mildew plant-pathogen interactions.
  Dr L Bindschedler, Prof A Devoto
Applications accepted all year round
Pathogens secrete small proteins called effectors or virulence factors which are important for the successful invasion of the host.
  A real-time molecular epidemiological investigation into the contribution of fungal spores to seasonal asthma spikes
  Prof A Hansell, Dr C Pashley, Dr E Marczylo, Prof A Elliot
Application Deadline: 24 April 2019
This is a Medical Research Council (MRC) Toxicology Unit Integrative Toxicology Training Partnership (ITTP) Capacity Building studentship.
