  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-.
  How does soil microbial diversity impact upon above-ground drought tolerance in plants?
  Dr A Hodge, Dr J Ferrari, Prof J Gray
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microbes perform several key roles in soils including in the supply of many. nutrients through the degradation of soil organic matter, and can contribute to.
