  RNAi as a pest management tool in Aphids
  Dr T Davies, Dr S Foster
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

An exciting opportunity for a 3-year AHDB-funded PhD on ‘targeted gene silencing’ to control aphid infestations in UK cereals and oilseeds.
  Image classification based disease and pest detection in agriculture
  Dr S Chakraborty
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Developing image clarification models using tools such as Google Tensorflow. The models need to be capable of identifying different diseases and insect infestations in specific crops such as cotton.
  Molecular genetic characterization of Drosophila reproductive behaviours for exploitation in insect population control
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr M Soller
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Female reproductive behaviours in most insects profoundly change after mating leading to rejection of courting males and induction of egg laying.
  The genomics of sperm killing gene drive
  Dr T Price, Prof G Hurst, Prof S Paterson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many selfish genetic elements spread rapidly through populations by killing gametes that do not carry them. This fascinating phenomena also has practical applications.
  The biological control of insect pests using predators and parasitoids
  Prof M D E Fellowes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will focus on building an understanding of the behavioural and physiological interactions of insect pests and their natural enemies (predators and parasitoids), and using this to develop better approaches to insect pest management in the field.
