  Does plant pathogen adaptation in environmental reservoirs and secondary host affect its virulence and risk for transmission?
  Dr V Friman, Prof M Brockhurst, Dr D Jeffares
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Even though opportunistic plant pathogens must survive in various natural. environments during transmission between hosts, this crucial part of their life-.
  TurboID-charging discovery of plant pathogen virulence and host defense mechanisms (JONESS20DTP)
  Prof J Jones
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant pathogens cause disease and reduce crop yields, secreting "effector" proteins that target host. proteins and suppress immunity.
  Transcriptional battles in plant-pathogen interactions: understanding and re-wiring gene regulatory networks to enhance disease resistance
  Prof K Denby, Prof I A Graham
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The severity of plant disease is determined by a battle between pathogen virulence and host plant immunity – understanding this relationship is key to developing sustainable methods of pathogen control.
  Transcriptional battles in plant-pathogen interactions: understanding and re-wiring gene regulatory networks to enhance disease resistance
  Prof K Denby, Prof I A Graham
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The severity of plant disease is determined by a battle between pathogen virulence. and host plant immunity – understanding this relationship is key to developing.
  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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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

Funding Type

PhD Type

Clubroot is an important pathogen of Brassica crops. The disease is found throughout the world and causes severe economic losses.
  Developing phage therapy to control plant pathogenic bacteria in the rhizosphere microbiome
  Dr V Friman
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant pathogenic bacteria cause considerable economic losses to food production systems. The main reason for this is that hardly any effective control methods exist to mitigate this damage.
  *EASTBIO* Regulation of plant cell-to-cell communication
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr J Tilsner
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BBSRC Thematic Group. Frontier Bioscience. Background. Plasmodesmata are membrane-lined cytoplasmic channels which are of fundamental importance to plant development, stress responses and defence against pathogens.
  Regulation of virulence and biofilm formation by quorum sensing and the "stress alarmone" ppGpp in gram-negative pathogenic bacteria.
  Dr M Welch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are investigating the complex interplay between cell-cell signalling (quorum sensing), microbial lifestyle (i.e., free-living planktonic cultures vs sessile biofilm communities), growth phase and virulence in gram-negative bacteria.
  BBSRC EASTBIO PhD Programme: Molecular characterisation of plant disease resistance genes through novel Next-Generation Sequencing applications
  Dr I Hein, Dr M Bayer
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4 year PhD project is part of a competition funded by EASTBIO BBSRC Doctoral Training Partnership http://www.eastscotbiodtp.ac.uk/how-apply-0.
  China Scholarship Council - Molecular characterisation of plant disease resistance genes through novel Next-Generation Sequencing applications
  Dr I Hein
Application Deadline: 15 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The School of Life Sciences at the University of Dundee, joint with the China Scholarship Council (CSC), is proud to be able to offer a scholarship programme for postgraduate research students.
  How does the plant decode self- and non-self-signals to balance immune response and growth? (MENKES20DTPR)
  Dr F Menke, Prof N Talbot
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants are constantly exposed to microbial signals and need to decode and integrate these signals with signaling processes controlling growth.
  A helping hand: signal transduction in plant immunity (BANFIELDJ20DTP)
  Prof M Banfield
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant diseases are a continuous threat to food production and a major constraint on achieving global food security. One approach to restricting plant diseases is to understand how plant immune receptors recognise the presence of pathogens and transduce signals that lead to disease resistance.
  Understanding signalling networks underpinning key developmental processes during plant evolution
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr J C Coates
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants first appeared on land almost half a billion years ago. All land plants likely evolved from a single aquatic green algal ancestor.
  BBSRC EASTBIO PhD Programme: Boosting the signal –defining the signal amplification complex during plant perception of the environment
