Ph.D. Student Positions in Plant Pathology at University of Florida The Department of Plant Pathology at the University of Florida (UF) is currently recruiting motivated Ph.D. students for Fall 2014. We are seeking students to study basic and applied aspects of plant-microbe interactions within the context of agricultural systems. UF Plant Pathology offers a dynamic research environment that includes 37 faculty advisors and a vibrant, diverse graduate student population. The Department is headquartered at the main campus in Gainesville, Florida but many faculty are distributed across the state at nine different Research and Education Centers. Due to Florida’s diverse climate, research in our department addresses a variety of plant pathogenic microbes on crops ranging from tomatoes and citrus to sugarcane and avocados. The wide array of crop-pathogen interactions in Florida provides unique opportunities for students in terms of research, extension, and hands-on education. We anticipate at least two Ph.D. fellowships for 2014. Graduate student applications are due 1 January 2014 and accepted students will begin the Ph.D. program in August 2014. Graduate student fellowships include a competitive stipend and health care coverage. We are seeking students with:...

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 for Fall 2014 enrollment. We study fungal ecology with an emphasis on plant-fungal interactions such as the mycorrhizal symbiosis. The goal of our research is to increase our current understandings of the mycorrhizal symbiosis in relation to plant and fungal community dynamics and ecosystem function. 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: http://www2.hawaii.edu/~nhynson/Hynson_Lab/Welcome.html or contact Nicole Hynson at nhynson@hawaii.edu....

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....
