  Understanding how multicellular bacteria divide (SCHLIMPERTJ20DTP)
  Dr S Schlimpert
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Every cell must divide to grow and to propagate. While most bacteria simply split in half, the decision when and where to divide is more complex in multicellular bacteria like the antibiotic producing bacteria Streptomyces.
  Understanding the link between metabolism and behaviour in plant growth-promoting bacteria (MALONEJ20DTP)
  Dr J Malone
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will address a fundamental but poorly understood topic in the field of plant-microbe interaction.
