  MSc by Research Programme: Development of tools suited for the in vivo identification and study of protein Complexes in Phytophthora capsici, required for infection.
  Dr E Huitema
Application Deadline: 16 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Broad host range pathogens, such as the oomycete pathogen Phytophthora capsici , can cause significant disease on a wide range of plants.
  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.
  Identifying global regulators of effector gene expression in the rice blast fungus (TALBOTS20DTP)
  Prof N Talbot
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Magnaporthe oryzae is the causal agent of rice blast, one of the most serious diseases affecting rice cultivation around the world.
  Novel chemistry to protect the wheat crop
  Dr G Kettles
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant pathogens pose major challenges to crop production and food security. How we protect plants from their most damaging pathogens is therefore vital to a future of sustainable agriculture.
  The role of Rho GTPases in plant immunity. PhD in Biosciences (SWBio DTP)
  Dr M Deeks
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr Michael Deeks, Department of Biosciences, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter. Additional Supervisors.
  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.
  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: 5 January 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.
  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.
  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.
