  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.
  EASTBIO: Resistance in Crop Roots: Functional Analysis of the H2-Meditated Response to Nematodes
  Dr S Mantelin, Prof J Jones
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Resistance genes provide plants with protection against a range of pathogens. Despite their use in crop breeding programmes, our knowledge of how plant resistance genes function is still sketchy and mainly based on studies in leaves rather than roots.
  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.
  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.
  The Eco-Immunology of Wild Mice
  Prof M Viney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The immune responses that wild animals make contribute to their fitness, but what those immune responses are – and how they differ from those of laboratory animals – is hardly known.
