PhD Project Information

John would like to hear from potential students interested in projects in the following areas:

- The effects of virus infection on plant-insect (e.g. vector or pollinator) interactions

- The role of salicylic acid in resistance to plant pathogens

- The effects of viral pathogenicity factors (including RNA silencing suppressors) on plant defensive signaling pathways (salicylic acid, jasmonic acid etc.)

These areas can form the basis for applications from overseas students or from EU/domestic students (including students in the BBSRC DTP)
