  PhD Molecular Plant Pathology
  Dr A Feechan
Application Deadline: 29 April 2019
Fungal pathogens cause disease in crop plants dramatically reducing yields and quality. Preventing fungal disease in crops would ensure global food security and reduce agricultural inputs with respect to fungicide application.
  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.
  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.
  Conservation and crop protection unite to save the endangered Barberry Carpet moth (SAUNDERSJ19CASE2)
  Dr D Saunders
Application Deadline: 23 April 2019
Common barberry is a native hedgerow plant throughout the UK. However, in the late 19th and early 20th century it was removed from many sites as it was linked to deleterious effects on wheat crops caused by stem rust infection.
