  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.
  The role of insect-plant-fungus interactions in natural and managed systems
  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.
  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.
  Understanding resistance and tolerance to chytrid fungal disease in amphibians to improve conservation
  Dr L Grogan, Prof H McCallum
Applications accepted all year round
Wildlife are in peril. Chytridiomycosis (caused by aquatic fungal agent Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis) is the most devastating disease threat to biodiversity ever recorded.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  Examining the host-environmental interface of Histoplasma capsulatum to understand the implications of disease management within endemic populations.
  Dr C Scantlebury, Prof A J McCarthy, Dr T Helgason
Applications accepted all year round
Histoplasmosis is an endemic disease with serious consequences to equine and human health. This dimorphic fungus favours nitrogen rich environments, and generates highly resistant spores.
  The nature of mycorrhizal symbioses
  Prof M Tibbett
Applications accepted all year round
This project will build on recent work highlighting the changing view of the nature of the relationship between plant and fungus in the (near) ubiquitous symbiosis.
