The Imperial College PhD Scholarship Scheme offers an outstanding opportunity for potential PhD students worldwide. If you are a high performing undergraduate or Master’s student, and have a strong desire to undertake a PhD programme at a world class research institution, you could be selected to receive full tuition fees and a generous stipend for a PhD place at Imperial College London. Fifty places are available. The Scheme aims to provide research students with great potential the opportunity to work within their chosen research field with the support of an excellent supervisor. Successful candidates will receive funding for fees and a stipend of £20k per annum for up to 3.5 years. Scholars will have access to a programme of career development and cohort activities delivered by a combination of their host department and the Graduate School. Support will be available to allow a high degree of interaction with other researchers (at other HEIs in the UK and abroad) and research users. Posted by Dr. Martin...

2 PhD fellowships in 'Biodiversity and Cultivation of Fungi' ------------------------------------------------------------ Two PhD fellowships are available from 1st of April 2013 to 31st of December 2015 at Goethe-University Frankfurt, Department of Biological Sciences (Institute of Ecology, Evolution and Diversity). The positions are framed within the LOEWE excellence cluster 'Integrative Fungal Research'. The cluster has recently been funded, and includes researchers in mycology at four universities in Germany and the Senckenberg Society. The aim of the cluster is to synergistically tie together the basic research areas of biodiversity research, molecular genetics, and genomics with translational research in biochemistry and biotechnology. Thus, the research cluster offers an ideal environment for scientific development and profiling. We are looking for motivated and creative candidates who will develop individual PhD projects on the biodiversity and ecological significance of fungal endophytes. More specifically, the projects will be aimed to identify endophytes' patterns of distribution, association and interaction with plant hosts, to assess evolutive processes leading to plant-fungus symbioses, and to experimentally test potential mutualistic associations with relevance for adaptation to the environment. The applicants should hold an MSc degree (or equivalent) in biology or related fields. We expect good written and oral communication skills in English....

Graduate Student Opportunities in Fungal Ecology The Hynson lab at the University of Hawaii Manoa, Department of Botany is currently recruiting highly motivated, enthusiastic, and well qualified graduate students. We study fungal ecology with an emphasis on plant-fungal interactions such as the mycorrhizal symbiosis. The goal of our research is to deepen current understandings of the importance of plant-fungal interactions in natural environments. We accomplish this through field and laboratory experiments that utilize cutting-edge techniques in molecular ecology and ecophysiology. We are seeking graduate student applicants at the MS and PhD levels with strong backgrounds in ecology and/or fungal biology. For more information on the Hynson Lab and how to apply see: or contact Nicole Hynson at
