  QUADRAT DTP: Genomics approaches to explore the secrets of remarkable plants: Soil/root microbiome interaction and edaphic stress adaptation
  Dr C Meharg, Dr G Norton, Prof A Meharg
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The wild grasses Holcus lanatus, Agrostis capillaris and Deschampsia cespitosa are characterised by their extensive environmental range and resilience to environmental stress.
  QUADRAT DTP: Identifying Environmental Factors for Soil Transmitted and Food Borne Helminth Diseases in Border Regions of Northern Thailand
  Dr G Gobert, Dr S Telfer
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Parasitic worm infections (helminthiases) of humans greatly impact low to medium income countries such as Thailand, by undermining health and agricultural productivity.
  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).
  QUADRAT DTP: Unravelling the freshwater microbial phosphorus cycle
  Prof J Mcgrath, Dr C Gubry-Rangin, Dr J Chin, Dr B Spears
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Eutrophication of freshwater environments via anthropogenic phosphorus (P) input is one of the most serious global water management issues.
  Rewiring of host cell protein complexes by pathogen effectors - mass spectrometry-based methods and applications in infection biology
  Dr B Collins, Prof J Bengoechea, Dr G Schroeder
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Bacterial pathogens, such as Klebsiella pneumoniae and Legionella pneumophila, residing inside host immune cells such as macrophages, must subvert host cell defences in order to avoid destruction.
  SAFENUT: Cold plasma as an Intervention technology to ensure a safe and nutritious groundnut supply
  Prof P Bourke, Prof C Elliott, Prof B Gilmore
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L., Peanut) is an important oilseed and food crop, playing a significant role in global food and nutrition security as a source of non-animal protein.
  Schistosome blood flukes and bacteria: How pathogens interact with other pathogens, and the host
  Dr G Gobert, Dr J Megaw
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Parasitic schistosome flukes reside in the blood stream of the host, causing significant chronic disease in hundreds of millions of people in tropical and sub-tropical countries.
  Targeting yeast epigenetics to combat anti-fungal resistance
  Dr E Hyland, Dr C Law
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. One consequence of climate change is the increased incidence of fungal disease, as global temperatures become more aligned with optimal fungal growth conditions.
  Temperature regulation of non-coding RNA and crop - rhizosphere interactions
  Dr J Dalzell, Dr FL Liu
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Crop plants manipulate rhizosphere interactions through the release of root exudates. Whilst root exudates can attract beneficial microbes, they are also exploited by pathogens and plant parasitic nematodes (PPNs).
  The marine phosphorus cycle and the methane paradox
  Prof J Mcgrath, Dr J Chin
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Marine microorganisms play major roles in regulating climate and driving global biogeochemical cycling. It has long been recognised that phosphorus (P) availability plays a major role in these processes by controlling marine primary productivity.
