  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.
  Functional analysis of fungal effector proteins in the barley/wheat powdery mildew plant-pathogen interactions.
  Dr L Bindschedler, Prof A Devoto
Applications accepted all year round
Pathogens secrete small proteins called effectors or virulence factors which are important for the successful invasion of the host.
  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.
  How does nutritional status affect plant immunity and disease? (Ref: CTPFCR20193)
  Dr R Harrison
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
This student is to be registered with University of Reading and will be mainly based at NIAB EMR, Kent. The team of supervisors will be led by Dr Richard Harrison of NIAB EMR.

  Photoreceptor regulation of plant development
  Dr S Casson
Applications accepted all year round
Plant growth and development is highly dependent on the light environment. Light provides energy to drive photosynthesis but light quality and quantity is also perceived by photoreceptors, which signal to regulate responses enabling plants to adapt to their environment.
  Synthetic Resistance to Potato Blight
  Prof R Van der Hoorn
Applications accepted all year round
The oomycete potato pathogen Phytophthora infestans has caused devastation during the Irish Potato Famine in the 1840s. P. infestans still causes major problems in the potato industry, and is mostly controlled using agrochemicals.
  Simple diagnostics for food security in developing countries
  Research Group: Food security and cold storage
  Prof T R Dafforn, Prof J Tucker
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Central to the theme of the Agriculture and Food Systems Challenges (AFSC) is a need to maintain and improve the yield of crops. A recent FAO report highlighted that potatoes represent a very attractive proposition to address a number of the challenges which are pertinent to the AFSC.
