  Functional and mechanistic analysis of mRNA localisation and its role in polarised growth for S. cerevisiae and the pathogenic fungus Aspergillus fumigatus.
  Prof M Ashe, Prof N Read, Prof S Hubbard
Applications accepted all year round
Life threatening fungal diseases annually kill more people than malaria, tuberculosis or breast cancer and Aspergillus fumigatus is the most important human pathogenic filamentous fungus.
  Mining the secretome of the lignocellulose degrading fungus Graphium sp.
  Prof N Bruce, Prof S J McQueen-Mason
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The need to reduce our reliance on fossil derived hydrocarbons for chemical and fuel production is pressing. Biofuels provide substantial reductions in carbon emissions compared to fossil fuels.
  Host proteins targeted by the CSEP family 21 effectors from the biotrophic pathogenic fungus Blumeria graminis causing powdery mildew in barley
  Dr L Bindschedler, Dr T Bozkurt
Application Deadline: 15 January 2019
Fungi are major actors in spoiling crops and reducing food yield. Among them, powdery mildews are a class of obligate fungal pathogens affecting major agricultural and horticultural crops such as cereals, grape, zucchini or strawberry, thus having a major impact on food production, in the UK and globally.
  Urease metabolism in the wheat pathogen Zymoseptoria tritici
  Dr J Rutherford
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Septoria tritici blotch is a serious worldwide disease of wheat that is caused by the fungus Zymoseptoria tritici. In some cases up to 50% of wheat yields are lost due to Z.
  Biological implications of genetics variation in rice for mycorrhizal colonisation.
  Prof A Price
Applications accepted all year round
We have demonstrated repeatable and substantial differences in the colonisation of rice cultivars by the model arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungus Rizophagus irregularis and mapped quantitative trait loci for the variation.
  Transport, fate and aquatic ecological impact of airport de-icers: a collaborative research project with Heathrow Airport
  Dr R Grabowski, Dr A Medina Vaya
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
CENTA2 is a consortium of research intensive Universities and research institutes that are working together to provide excellence in doctoral research training.
  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.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP:A massive attack on how messenger RNA sequence specifies condition-dependent RNA fate
  Research Group: Institute of Cell Biology
  Dr E Wallace, Dr V Pelechano, Dr G Sanguinetti, Dr C French
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Background. All organisms must respond to changes in their environment. Fungi detect and adapt to stressful environmental changes by reorganizing their messenger RNA (mRNA) and protein.
  Pests and pollution: Mycorrhizal mediation of carbon cycling in heather moorlands
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr S M Sait, Dr K. Field, Prof P Chapman
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The multiple drivers of environmental change, such as climate change and pollution, have led to widespread negative impacts on ecosystem functioning and services that are critical for human well-being.
  Miniaturised microfluidic technology to probe the fundamentals of heterogeneous ice nucleation
  Dr B J Murray, Dr J Shim
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The heterogeneous nucleation of ice is a critical process in fields as diverse as cryopreservation through to atmospheric cloud formation, yet it is extremely poorly understood.
