  Next generation, sustainable RNA based biopesticides
  Prof MJ Dickman
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The estimated global crop loss to pests is >$100 Billion every year. These include insects, plant viruses, and fungi; many of these either have no current means of control or have developed resistance against traditional chemical pesticides.
  Transcription control and immune evasion in African trypanosomes
  Research Group: Division of Cell & Molecular Biology
  Prof G Rudenko
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Trypanosomes are unicellular eukaryotes which cause African Sleeping Sickness, which is endemic to subSaharan Africa. Trypanosomes can be easily grown as suspension cell lines in the laboratory, where they are straightforward to manipulate and genetically modify.
  QUADRAT DTP: Temperature regulation of crop - rhizosphere ecology
  Dr J Dalzell, Dr C Gubry-Rangin, Dr FL Liu
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Crop plants manipulate rhizosphere interactions and community structure through the release of root exudates. Whilst root exudates can attract beneficial microbes, they are also exploited by pathogens and plant parasitic nematodes (PPNs).
  Cloning and expression of topoisomerase genes from Trypanosoma brucei (SteverdingD-2U19SF)
  Dr D Steverding
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Topoisomerases (TOPs) are essential enzymes that catalysis topological changes in DNA. TOPs are pivotal to cell survival and therefore inhibitors have been developed to target these enzymes both for antimicrobial and anti-cancer chemotherapy.
  Validating gene essentiality using functional genomics
  Dr N Young, Prof RB Gasser
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Parasitic worms (helminths) cause some of the world’s most neglected diseases, affecting billions of animals and people worldwide.
