  Genetic basis of extracellular potato blight recognition in wild Solanum sp.
  Prof R Van der Hoorn
Applications accepted all year round
Potato late blight has caused the devastating Irish potato famine in the 1840s and is still an important pathogen in agriculture today.
  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.
  An investigation of soil bacteriophages associated with positive and poor crop outcome
  Prof M Clokie
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
There is an increasing awareness that the microbial composition of soil can impact the productivity of crop plants. Bacteria have key roles in increasing the ability of plants to take up nutrients and to combat pathogenic bacteria.
  Research MSc position (2years) in Plant-Soil Microbiology
  Dr A Schmalenberger
Application Deadline: 29 April 2019
Project overview - general. This position is part of the European SusCROP consortium PotatoMETAbiome that has the following background.
  Statistical genetics and genomics of complex traits
  Dr L Leach, Prof Z Luo
Applications accepted all year round
A highly motivated student is sought to train as a statistical geneticist working on the dissection of complex trait phenotypes in human, plant and animal populations into their underlying genetic components.
  Methods for quantitative genetic analyses in autotetraploids
  Prof Z Luo
Applications accepted all year round
Methods for quantitative genetic analysis have been well established in almost all important diploid plants and animal including humans, and have served as essential tools for dissecting the genetic architectures underlying agronomically, evolutionarily and medically interesting quantitative and complex traits.
  Singularities of Mean Curvature Flow and Related Topics
  Research Group: Geometry and Analysis
  Dr R Buzano, Dr H Nguyen
Applications accepted all year round
The School of Mathematical Sciences of Queen Mary University of London invite applications for a PhD project commencing in September 2019.
  Role of Auxin in Phytophthora Root Rot Disease Development in Soft Fruit
  Dr E Gilroy, Dr C Simpson, Prof M Grant
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
Brief Introduction. Phytophthora species that infect soft fruit are currently poorly understood and understudied pathogens. They cause significant economic and environmental impact on soft fruit production in the UK.
  Statistical and Molecular Genetics of Complex Traits
  Prof Z Luo
Applications accepted all year round
Most characters of any living organism are polygenically controlled and environmentally modified, including those threatening human health and those important in breeding for high yield, better quality and improved adaption of animals, plants and microbes.
