  Dr M Bromley, Prof P Bowyer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A. fumigatus is the primary etiological agent of invasive aspergillosis, a disease that primarily affects individuals who are immunocompromised, and causes 200k life threatening infections annually.

  Dr P E Hatcher
Applications accepted all year round

Plants are attacked both by insects and pathogenic fungi, often at the same time, yet these are often studied by different specialists.
  Understanding resistance and tolerance to chytrid fungal disease in amphibians to improve conservation
  Dr L Grogan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project will involve working with captive animals (Australian barred frogs and tadpoles, including the endangered Fleay’s barred frog) to understand host responses to infection and mechanisms of resistance and tolerance to the devastating fungal disease, frog chytridiomycosis.

  Prof D Johnson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

  The effects of air pollution on the behaviour and allergenic potential of fungi
  Dr C Pashley, Dr J Morrissey
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fungi are an essential component of the ecosystem, but cause major economic loss through crop damage and infection of domesticated animals and livestock, and affect human health through infections, toxicosis, or allergy.
  The nature of mycorrhizal symbioses
  Prof M Tibbett
