  Tapping into signaling interactions between nematodes and aphids
  Prof N VanDam, Dr G Kunert
Application Deadline: 24 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. In natural environments, plants are commonly infested by both aboveground and belowground pests. This causes interactions between shoot and root herbivores via systemic induced responses.
  Apoplastic signalling in the interaction between plant-parasitic nematodes and their host plants
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Prof P E Urwin
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant-parasitic nematodes are economically important crop pathogens that cause billions of dollars of crop losses to agriculture throughout the world.
  Understanding the aetiology of diabetic neuropathy
  Dr N Gardiner, Dr R Unwin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Diabetic neuropathy is a common secondary complication of diabetes mellitus which affects around 50% of all patients with diabetes - impacting on health, wellbeing and quality of life.
  Communication in plant communities via a hyphal network connecting the roots of neighboring plants
  Prof R Oelmüller, Dr A Mithöfer
Application Deadline: 24 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Plants inform their neighbors about pathogen attacks or other kinds of threat. The information is distributed in the plant community via volatiles and/or fungal hyphal networks which connect their roots.
  Surfing the surface: Hydrophobins on fungal hyphae
  Prof E. Kothe, Prof J Gershenzon, Dr A Svatos
Application Deadline: 24 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Fungal hyphae can grow from the water phase into the air. To achieve that, hydrophobins are covering the fungal cell wall in aerial mycelium.
  Discovering the neuronal signalling mechanism at the heart of human heart disease
  Research Group: School of Biomedical Sciences
  Dr I Jayasinghe, Prof E White, Prof N Gamper
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Cardiac dysrhythmia a leading cause of mortality and long-term morbidity worldwide. Over 25% of these originate in the heart’s electrically-autonomous (pacemaking) cells without a detectable heart attack.
  PhD in Plants and Microbes: crop production and protection, the interaction between plants and other plants, pests and pathogens, and soils, and the interactions of ecosystems with global change
  Dr D Childs
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants underpin life on Earth. In Sheffield, world leading plant research is undertaken across all scales from the molecular level through to the leaf and root, whole plant and ecosystem.
