  Caustic response: understanding plant adaptation to high pH and its application to remediation of alkaline industrial residues.
  Research Group: Centre for Plant Sciences
  Prof A Baker, Prof D I Stewart
Application Deadline: 1 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Motivation. Around two billion tonnes of alkaline residues are produced globally each year by industrial processes. These residues are frequently stored in waste piles or landfills, and can be an environmental hazard if allowed to generate dust or if rainwater infiltrates the waste (Gomes et al 2016).
  Molecular, biochemical and developmental analysis of root traits for low P adaptation in foxtail millet.
  Research Group: Centre for Plant Sciences
  Prof A Baker, Dr S Kepinski
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Phosphorus is an essential macronutrient for plant growth and cannot be replaced by any other element. It is the second most limiting nutrient after N.
  BBSRC White Rose DTP Studentship - Role of cytidine deaminase in (epi)genetic adaptation of the plant immune system.
  Prof J Ton, Dr L Smith, Dr J Stassen
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

As sessile organisms, plants are masters in adapting to environmental stresses. Recent work from the Ton lab has shown that plants employ epigenetic mechanisms to prime their immune system long-term against potential pests and diseases.
  Metabolomic studies of E. coli adaptation from anaerobic to aerobic growth
  Prof M P Williamson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Escherichia coli is a commensal organism that lives in the human gut. Occasionally it gives rise to food poisoning incidents, but mainly it is important for digestion and uptake of nutrients.
  Graduate Position (Masters or PhD) in Urban Resilience and Climate Change Adaptation
  Prof D Bristow
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cities are where most people on Earth call home, yet cities face and cause many challenges. We are looking for someone that is passionate about solving problems in urban areas.
  Molecular adaptation in Leishmania parasites
  Dr D Jeffares, Prof J Mottram
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Leishmania are single-celled protozoan parasites of the Order Trypanosomatidae that cause the neglected tropical disease leishmaniasis.
  Deciphering the regulation of fission yeast phenotypic heterogeneity by external conditions
  Research Group: Quantitative Gene Expression
  Dr S Marguerat
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Phenotypic cell-to-cell variability is a fundamental determinant of microbial fitness that contributes to stress adaptation and drug resistance.
  Modelling the effects of climate change on European yields of oilseed rape (PENFIELDUJIC20ARIES)
  Dr S Penfield
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change is now widely understood to be impacting food supplies. Ensuring future food security will require understanding how climate change will affect crop yields in different agricultural systems and the design of appropriate measures for adaptation.
  Understanding and predicting the effects of climate change on European yields of oilseed rape (PENFIELDJ20DTP)
  Dr S Penfield
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change is now widely understood to be impacting food supplies. Ensuring future food security will require understanding how climate change will affect crop yields in different agricultural systems and the design of appropriate measures for adaptation.
  (BBSRC DTP) The physiology and energetics of locomotion in turtles: linking performance from the organismal to the cellular level
  Dr J Codd, Dr G Galli
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Turtles have the most distinctive body plans of vertebrates (1). Turtles appear in the fossil record over 220 million years ago. Turtles are unique among vertebrates in that their whole body is enclosed within a rigid bony shell, composed of the carapace and plastron, that protects from predators.
