Southern Swedish Forest Research Centre in Alnarp is looking for a PhD studentship in the research area biology, with focus on forest pathology.
Forest Phytophthoras – ecology, diversity and management
This PhD project is part of a larger recruitment of 5 PhD students at SLU Alnarp, who will be embedded in Marie Skłodowska-Curie European Training Network PROTECTA (H2020-MSCA-ITN-2017-766048). PROTECTA will recruit 15 students to academic and industrial research PhDs across Europe and is aiming to develop new and innovative ways to control oomycete diseases across the agriculture, environment, forestry and aquaculture sectors. We will study selected oomycete pathogens and their hosts in multidisciplinary cross-sectoral projects. Students will therefore be well connected to relevant industry mentors and undertake secondments at different locations in the consortium.
Welcome with your application no later than 2018-11-19.
