  Resistance by Elimination (NICHOLSONJ20CASE)
  Prof P Nicholson
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Wheat is one of the most important cereal crops in the world and provides 20% of the protein and calories for 4.5 billion people.
  Optimize tools to study gene functions in pest invertebrates with a focus on aphids and whiteflies (HOGENHOUTJ20CASE)
  Dr S Hogenhout
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is a three-way collaboration of the laboratories of Saskia Hogenhout (John Innes Centre, Norwich, UK), Grant Hughes (Liverpool School of Medicine (LSTMed), UK) and Marcus Guest (Syngenta, Jealotts Hill, UK) to develop gene knock-out technologies for the aphid Myzus persicae and the tobacco whitefly Bemisia tabaci.
  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.
  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.
  Genetic dissection of a complex immune locus in barley (MOSCOUS20DTP)
  Dr M Moscou
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Stripe rust (Puccinia striiformis) is an obligate biotrophic fungal pathogen of grasses. There are several adapted forms that preferentially infect different species including wheat and barley.
  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.
  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.
  Can improved genetic understanding of grain weight help feed the world? (UAUYJ20DTP)
  Dr C Uauy
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Wheat provides 20% of the calories and protein consumed by humans. The world population will reach 9 billion by 2050, which requires food production to more than double.
  Discovery of Antibiotics from Cyanobacteria (TRUMANJ20DTP)
  Dr A Truman
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacteria have the capacity to produce natural products with exquisite bioactivities, which makes these compounds excellent candidates as medicines and agrochemicals.
