  Primed for parasitism: pathogenic nematodes tailor their response to host plant exudates.
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Prof P E Urwin, Dr K. Field
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Background. Plant-parasitic nematodes are a major threat to global food security, causing billions of dollars of crop losses to agriculture throughout the world.
  Immune control of parasitic infection: Defining the role of gel-forming mucins in protection against gastrointestinal nematodes
  Prof D Thornton, Prof R K Grencis
Applications accepted all year round
Infection by gastrointestinal parasites (GI) is one of the most common types of parasitic infection in man and animals worldwide.
  Apoplastic signalling in the interaction between plant-parasitic nematodes and their host plants
  Research Group: Centre for Plant Sciences
  Prof P E Urwin
Application Deadline: 20 December 2018
Plant-parasitic nematodes are economically important crop pathogens that cause billions of dollars of crop losses to agriculture throughout the world.
  The role of exosome-like vesicles in host-parasite interactions
  Dr V Hunt
Application Deadline: 16 December 2018
BACKGROUND. Parasitic nematodes are estimated to infect more than 1.5 billion people globally, causing a substantial disease burden.
  Using Reverse Metagenomics to characterise nematode communities and soil health (YUUBIO19ARIES)
  Prof D W Yu, Prof M Hutchings
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Scientific background. Free-living nematodes are present in huge numbers in the soil. A few species are estimated to cause tens of billions ($USD) of damage to crops globally each year.
  Give-and-take: how do plants regulate resource exchange with mycorrhizas and parasitic nematodes?
  Research Group: Centre for Plant Sciences
  Dr K. Field, Prof P E Urwin
Application Deadline: 20 December 2018
The vast majority of plant roots form mutualistic symbioses with arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) whereby AMF supply their host plant with otherwise-inaccessible soil nutrients in return for carbon fixed through photosynthesis.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Genetic epilepsy: identifying mechanisms and potential drug treatments, from nematodes to humans
  Prof A Morgan, Prof A Trevelyan, Dr A Ilie
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Epilepsy is a common neurological disorder that has a major impact on patient mortality, morbidity and quality of life. Clinical management remains extremely problematic, held back both by diagnostic and treatment limitations.
  Gosden PhD Studentship in Plant Science at the University of Leeds
The Sheila Gosden legacy, left to the University of Leeds, aims to support students studying plant science through the Gosden endowment.
  Environmental maternal effects and intergenerational inheritance
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr A Pires da Silva, Dr R Allaby
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Project Highlights. Mechanisms by which organisms rapidly respond to sudden environmental changes. Mother senses environmental stress signals to produce stress-resistant progeny.
  A Few Bad Potatoes: Modelling Economic Aspects of Disease Control in Seed Potatoes
  Prof I Toth, Prof A Kleczkowski, Dr S Humphris
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Background. Production and export of seed potatoes is of immense value to the UK economy, yet threatened by multiple disease threats.
