  Examining the interactions between plant-feeding insects and symbiotic fungi
  Prof A Gange
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

“Plants are not discrete entities, but instead are mergers of fungal cells with plant tissues”. This statement implies that every living plant has fungi living within the roots and shoots.
  Biology and genetics of reproduction in filamentous fungi
  Prof P S Dyer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Filamentous fungi are of importance in the food, industrial and medical sectors and have important roles in the ecology of natural ecosystems.
  Interactions between introduced tree species and native mycorrhizal fungi in the UK
  Dr BJ Pickles
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Mycorrhizal symbioses are one of the most extensive and important biotic interactions in terrestrial ecosystems, typically providing plants with improved access to nutrients in exchange for carbohydrates produced via photosynthesis.
  Integrating marine fungi into the structure and function of pelagic ecosystems.
  Dr M Cunliffe, Dr B Ward
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Even though marine fungi have been known to exist since the 19th century, the application of molecular ecology tools has established a foundational understanding of the widespread distribution and diversity of the ocean mycobiome (Amend et al 2019).
  Evaluation of fungal complement evasion mechanisms via the lectin pathway
  Prof P Garred, Prof J Koehl
Application Deadline: 10 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The group of professor Peter Garred at the University of Copenhagen has deciphered the components of the lectin complement pathway.
  The functional importance of plant-fungal interactions in agri-ecosystems
  Prof D Johnson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most land plants have evolved symbioses with soil-borne mycorrhizal fungi, which provide nutritional benefits to both partners and are key to their fitness.
  Ecology and evolution of the earliest terrestrial animals. PhD in Biosciences (NERC GW4 + DTP)
  Dr X Ma
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr. Xiaoya Ma, Department of Biosciences, Centre for Ecology & Conservation, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter.
  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

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pathogens secrete small proteins called effectors or virulence factors which are important for the successful invasion of the host.
  Towards more sustainable use of phosphorus in UK grasslands considering soil-plant interactions
  Dr V Niasar, Prof D Johnson, Dr S Lee
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This ambitious project will lead to a major shift in how soil phosphorus (P), is managed in UK grasslands.
