  SCENARIO - Understanding risks and optimising anaerobic digestion to minimise pathogen and antimicrobial resistance genes entering the environment.
  Dr D Saroj
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Anaerobic digestion (AD) utilises organic materials to produce energy via biogas while also producing nutrient-rich digestate ideal for application to land as a fertiliser.
  Finding Achilles Heel: Investigating how to control major bacterial pathogens (WEBBERQ20DART)
  Dr M Webber, Prof J Wain
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacterial infection remains a major cause of morbidity and mortality with hospital acquired infections still common. The increase in numbers of bacterial which are AMR (antimicrobial resistant) makes prevention of infection more important than ever.
  PhD in Plants and Microbes: crop production and protection, the interaction between plants and other plants, pests and pathogens, and soils, and the interactions of ecosystems with global change
  Dr C Voigt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants underpin life on Earth. In Sheffield, world leading plant research is undertaken across all scales from the molecular level through to the leaf and root, whole plant and ecosystem.
  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.
  PhD Studentship Opportunity in Development of a novel processing control strategy for bacterial biofilm monitoring in the food industry
  Dr E Velliou
Application Deadline: 28 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) is a phenomenon through which bacteria become resistant to standard decontamination methods, e.g., antibiotics, classical sterilisation.
  Natural selection in action: molecular evolution of resistance to anti-microbials (BROWNJ20DTP)
  Prof J Brown
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Evolution of resistance to drugs and pesticides is a problem of great practical importance and is also one of the clearest demonstrations of natural selection in action.
  SWBio DTP PhD project: Investigating the interplay of 3D chromosome structure and non-coding RNAs in plant defence
  Dr H-W Nützmann, Prof L D Hurst, Dr K Vance

  The cost of being well-defended: How leaf herbivores make flowers stink and what plants can do about it
  Dr S Campbell
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants use a diverse array of traits to repel or kill pests and pathogens. Following attack, a sophisticated hormonal signaling system regulates the production of defensive metabolites, allowing plants to fine-tune their responses to specific enemies and environments.
