  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.
  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.
  *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.
  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.
  BBSRC EASTBIO PhD Programme: Boosting the signal –defining the signal amplification complex during plant perception of the environment
  Dr P Hemsley, Prof P Birch
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.
  Photoreceptor regulation of plant development
  Dr S Casson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant growth and development is highly dependent on the light environment. Light provides energy to drive photosynthesis but light quality and quantity is also perceived by photoreceptors, which signal to regulate responses enabling plants to adapt to their environment.
  PhD Position in Plant-Microbe Interaction and Cell Biology
  Dr S Üstün
Application Deadline: 18 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research. Our group at the ZMBP Tübingen is interested in the role of the proteasome and autophagy during plant immunity. Recently, we have identified that Pseudomonas activates autophagy for proteasome degradation and enhanced pathogenicity (Üstün et al., 2018).
