  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.
  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.
  Evolution Education Trust PhD project: Elucidation of chromatin remodelling mediated coordinated regulation of resistance gene clusters
  Dr V Cevik, Dr H-W Nützmann
Application Deadline: 5 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Bath is inviting applications for this PhD opportunity based at the Milner Centre for Evolution, a unique, cross-faculty research centre bridging biology, health and education.
  Targeting biological control applications using automated sporesampling and disease forecasting (IAF2001)
  Prof N Boonham
Application Deadline: 14 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Use of conventional crop protection products is under increasing pressure following withdrawal of actives due to regulation and resistance.
  RNAi workflows for crop protection by silencing virulence genes of fungi and oomycetes with antisense oligonucleotides (ASOs): Chemical modifications and conjugation to nanoparticles for enhancing ASOs silencing potential and delivery
  Dr L Bindschedler
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Major losses in crop production are caused by fungi and oomycetes. Traditional disease control involves either fungicide applications or via breeding of new plant varieties introgressed with resistance genes, or insertion of these genes in transgenic plants.
  Development of Botrytis fabae resistant faba beans
  Prof D O'Sullivan, Dr S Alves
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Europe faces a protein production challenge. Each year, it imports an average of 40 million tonnes (bean equivalent) of soya bean and soya meal to meet its needs for supplementary protein in feed, but it produces only 8 million tonnes of grain legume seeds.
