  Accelerating disease resistance breeding for diploid potato germplasm improvement (JONESS20CASE)
  Prof J Jones
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pests and diseases reduce crop yields, requiring agrichemical sprays. We aim to replace agrichemicals with genetic resistance for pest and disease control.
  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.
  Adapt or die? Understanding how bacterial bioflms evolve under stress (WEBBERQ20DTP)
  Dr M Webber
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most bacteria in nature exist within a biofilm; a community of aggregated cells. Biofilms are important in many industrial contexts and most bacterial infections include biofilms.
  Microbial ecology and metagenomics of a foodborne pathogen (MATHERQ20DTP)
  Dr A Mather
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Campylobacter is the commonest bacterial cause of diarrhoeal disease in the UK, where is it most often associated with poultry, and amongst the top five causes of diarrhoeal disease in low and middle-income countries.
  Computational metagenomics in personalized medicine: Defining high resolution microbial genotypes (HILDEBRANDQ20DTP2)
  Dr F Hildebrand
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for a highly motivated and bioinformatically minded student, to investigate bacterial communities through metagenomics and population genetics.
  To divide or not? The importance of division to hair formation in plants. (MARTINJ20DTP)
  Prof C Martin
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Multi-cellular hairs (trichomes) are important chemical factories in plants (producing flavours and fragrances) and provide them with protection against biotic and abiotic stresses.
  Find your match: investigating the biophysics and the evolution of protein-DNA interaction specificity (LEJ20DTP)
  Dr T Le
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

In living organisms, hundreds of DNA-binding proteins carry out a plethora of roles in homeostasis, transcriptional regulation in response to stress, and in maintenance and transmission of genetic information.
  Establishment of germline-specific DNA methylation in plants (FENGJ20DTP)
  Dr X Feng
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our recent work demonstrated distinctive DNA methylation occurs at hundreds of genes across the entire male germline in plants. This germline-specific methylation is catalysed by a ubiquitous methylation pathway, and regulates meiosis by controlling gene expression and splicing.
  Natural selection in action: molecular evolution of resistance to anti-microbials (BROWNJ20DTP)
  Prof J Brown
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Evolution of resistance to drugs and pesticides is a problem of great practical importance and is also one of the clearest demonstrations of natural selection in action.
  Mining Meadows: Exploring the metabolic diversity of UK plants (PATRONE20DTP2)
  Dr N Patron
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants synthesize a multitude of specialised metabolites, many of which they use to provide protection against pests and pathogens, as attractants for beneficial insects, or to model their microbiomes.
