  Analysis of pathogen determinants recognized by the hypervariable immune receptor Dscam
  Dr M Soller
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
Background. To mount an immune response, host organisms must first recognize the pathogen with which they are infected. The first line of defense against pathogen infection in animals is provided through the innate immune response.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Limiting infection: Identifying factors for the in vivo dissemination of themajor nosocomial pathogen Klebsiella pneumoniae
  Dr T Schneiders, Prof D Dockrell, Prof C G Becker, Prof F Balloux
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Background. The zebrafish infection model (Danio rerio) is a reliable verterbrate model which harbors a mammalian-like innate immune system.
  Immune and physiological determinants of host heterogeneity in pathogen shedding and spreading
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr P Vale, Dr A Pedersen
Application Deadline: 13 December 2018
Individuals vary tremendously in their propensity to transmit infections. Such host heterogeneity – most striking in the case of super-spreading and super-shedding individuals - makes it difficult to predict, manage, and curtail epidemics.
  Suppression of extracellular host hydrolases by a plant pathogen
  Prof R Van der Hoorn
Applications accepted all year round
The extracellular space in leaves (the apoplast) is an important battlefield for plant-pathogen interactions. Plants defend this space by the (induced) secretion of hydrolytic enzymes.
  BBSRC DTP targeted studentship - The role of RNA elements that control protein synthesis during host pathogen interaction
  Dr B Chung, Dr G Fraser, Dr A Firth
Application Deadline: 3 January 2019
Understanding host responses to pathogen infection is critical for guiding the development of intervention strategies. Changes in gene expression are commonly observed upon infection, as exemplified by numerous transcriptomic studies.
  China Scholarship Council PhD Programme: Molecular characterisation of plant disease resistance genes through novel Next-Generation Sequencing applications
  Dr I Hein
Application Deadline: 14 January 2019
This PhD project will provide comprehensive training for the successful candidate in potato genetics (diploid and tetraploid) as well as plant-pathogen genomics/co-evolution.
  Using live-cell imaging of the immune response to investigate host-pathogen interactions during infection.
  Prof R May
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
My group is interested in the molecular and cellular mechanisms that occur during host-pathogen interactions.
  Understanding Xylella fastidiosa, a globally challenging plant pathogen - studies in pathogenicity and population genomics
  Prof R W Jackson
Applications accepted all year round
This is an exciting PhD opportunity working with the University of Reading. It will focus on applying advanced sequencing technologies and population genomics to understand a globally challenging plant pathogen that currently threatens worldwide horticulture.
  BBSRC EASTBIO PhD Programme: Molecular characterisation of plant disease resistance genes through novel Next-Generation Sequencing applications
  Dr I Hein, Dr M Bayer
Application Deadline: 10 December 2018
This PhD project will provide comprehensive training for the successful candidate in potato genetics (diploid and tetraploid) as well as plant-pathogen genomics/co-evolution.
  Nutritional Immunity in Drosophila - identifying the underlying nutrient-sensing control of host immune regulators and investigating how altered nutrients affect pathogen prosperity
  Dr M Piper, Dr L Wakeling
Applications accepted all year round
PhD Student Position. Nutritional Immunity in Drosophila. Monash University, Australia and Newcastle University, UK.
