  Fungi: their interactions, virulence mechanisms and identification of novel antifungal compounds
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr R Hall
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Fungi are a major cause of infection worldwide with the following species being the most prevalent in human infections Candida, Aspergillus and Cryptococcus.
  Examining the interactions between plant-feeding insects and symbiotic fungi
  Prof A Gange
Applications accepted all year round
“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.
  Functional biology and ecology of aquatic fungi (CUNLIFFEPMBA19ARIES)
  Dr M Cunliffe
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Fungi are well established as important components of aquatic ecosystems, however the functional roles that they fulfil remain poorly understood (Grossart & Rojas-Jimenez 2016).
  Biology and genetics of reproduction in filamentous fungi
  Prof P S Dyer
Applications accepted all year round
Filamentous fungi are of importance in the food, industrial and medical sectors and have important roles in the ecology of natural ecosystems.
  Exploring the importance of fungal-specific aspects of RNase MRP in ribosome production
  Dr C Schneider
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Fungal contamination leading to reduced harvest and post-harvest food spoilage accounts for the loss of 10- 20% of food production worldwide.
  How fungi manage stress: the role of RNA binding proteins in post-transcriptional adaptations to heat shock
  Research Group: Institute of Cell Biology
  Dr E Wallace, Dr A Cook
Application Deadline: 13 December 2018
Fungal pathogens are a major worldwide health burden, killing more people each year than malaria or tuberculosis. However, fungal pathogenesis and, in particular, how fungi adapt to human hosts at the start of infection, is poorly understood.
  How fungi navigate their environment: what drives gene expression patterns in new lab infection models of a major fungal pathogen?
  Research Group: Institute of Cell Biology
  Dr E Wallace, Dr E Ballou
Application Deadline: 13 December 2018
Fungi growing in different environmental conditions undergo huge changes in gene expression and cell shape, despite being genetically identical.
  Global diversity and ecosystem functions of a newly discovered plant-microbe symbiosis
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Prof G Bending
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Project Highlights. We have discovered a previously unknown plant-microbial symbiosis with global distribution. You will unravel the diversity of the fungal symbionts involved, the factors which control their distribution, and determine its potential contribution to ecosystem processes through genome analysis.
  Distribution modelling and the management and conservation of European ectomycorrhizal communities
  Dr M Bidartondo, Dr G Powney, Dr C D L Orme
Application Deadline: 16 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.
  How does woodland creation influence below-ground biodiversity, and soil and ecosystem functions?
  Prof K Park, Dr E Vanguelova, Dr C Wilson, Dr K Watts
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
This PhD will examine how woodland creation influences below-ground biodiversity, soil stabilisation, long term carbon sequestration, nutrient cycling, and the time-scales required for the development of these processes.
