  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.
  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.
  How does clubroot obtain nutrients from its living plant host?
  Dr S A Rolfe
Applications accepted all year round
Clubroot is an important pathogen of Brassica crops. The disease is found throughout the world and causes severe economic losses.
  Exploiting pathogenomics and resistance for control of Fusarium wilt of lettuce
  Dr John Clarkson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
with industrial collaborator Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB). Fusarium wilt disease of lettuce is caused by the soilborne fungus Fusarium oxysporumf.sp.
  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.
  How does nutritional status affect plant immunity? (Ref: CTP_FCR_2019_3)
  Dr R Harrison
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
The Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC ) have awarded a Collaborative Training Partnership (CTP) grant to a consortium led by Berry Gardens Growers Ltd and NIAB EMR.
  Impact of increasing environmental CO2 on plant immunity
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr E Luna-Diez, Dr G Kettles
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Global climate change, including anthropogenic activity, has raised atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) level significantly (~40%) from the pre-industrial era.
  A Few Bad Potatoes: Modelling Economic Aspects of Disease Control in Seed Potatoes
  Prof A Kleczkowski, Prof I Toth, 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.
  The role of two component signalling in the regulation of stress responses and virulence in the fungal phytopathogen, Zymoseptoria tritici
  Dr S Whitehall
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
This project will investigate the role that two component proteins play in the regulation of stress-activated MAP kinase (SAPK) signalling pathways in the fungal plant pathogen, Zymoseptoria tritici.
  The importance of metal binding for the function of rice proteins that interact with pathogen effectors
  Prof C Dennison
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Global demand for food is rising and plant pathogens are one of a number of major threats to crop harvests. Plant pathogens produce effector proteins that remodel host cell processes for the benefit of the pathogen, resulting in disease.
