Doctoral Training Partnership studentships at TSL


The Norwich Biosciences DTP is a new PhD programme involving the John Innes Centre, the University of East Anglia, the Institute of Food Research, The Sainsbury Laboratory and The Genome Analysis Centre.

The following projects within TSL research groups have been shortlisted for funding by the Norwich Biosciences Doctoral Training Partnership (NRPDTP). Shortlisted applicants will be interviewed as part of the studentship competition. Candidates will be interviewed on either the 12th, 13th or 14th January 2016.

Tuning the sensor of an immune receptor (KAMOUN_S16FDTP)

Secreted plant peptides to fight pathogens in agriculture and medicine (ROBATZEK_S16WDTP)

How does the plant regulate receptor signaling to balance immune response and growth? (MENKE_S16WDTP)

Immunity to multiple pathogens: identification of a fungal immune receptor in barley to ascomycete and basidiomycete fungi (MOSCOU_S16FDTP)

How do plant resistance proteins activate defence gene expression upon effector perception? (JONES_S16WDTP)

How do plant immune receptors evolve to outrace pathogens? (KRASILEVA_G16FDTP)
