  Farmers’ cattle breeding choices: balancing productivity, sustainability and food security objectives
  Dr K Glenk
Application Deadline: 15 April 2019
Achieving food security across society while improving the sustainability of food production is a challenge faced by agriculture and the wider food system.
  Developing a molecular toolkit for breeding of the black soldier fly, Hermetia illucens
  Mr S Hall
Application Deadline: 7 April 2019
Insects can provide a source of protein for animal feed and other high value products. There has been minimal research on the selection of insect populations with desirable traits for use in this emerging industry.
  Genetic improvement for small holder dairy cattle systems in Senegal
  Prof J Hickey, Dr K Marshall
Application Deadline: 1 April 2019
We are offering a fully funded PhD studentship to research key questions that will underpin the establishment of a genetic improvement program for small holder dairy cattle systems in Senegal.
  Modelling population dynamics from detection survey data
  Research Group: Centre for Research into Ecological and Environmental Modelling
  Prof L Thomas, Dr R Glennie
Applications accepted all year round
Ecologists collect data on wild animal populations by a variety of survey methods and infer from these how the population changes over time through recruitment, survival, and movement processes.
  How does rising atmospheric CO2 change the productivity of crops and trees?
  Prof C P Osborne
Applications accepted all year round
Professor Colin Osborne, Department of Animal and Plant Sciences, University of Sheffield, Sheffield, UK. New research in the lab investigates how plant growth is controlled by the supply of carbon from photosynthesis (source strength) verses the demand for carbon in growing tissues (sink strength).

  Dr D Childs
Applications accepted all year round
Plants underpin life on Earth. In Sheffield, world leading plant research is undertaken across all scales from the molecular level through to the leaf and root, whole plant and ecosystem.
  Statistical genetics and genomics of complex traits
  Dr L Leach, Prof Z Luo
Applications accepted all year round
A highly motivated student is sought to train as a statistical geneticist working on the dissection of complex trait phenotypes in human, plant and animal populations into their underlying genetic components.
  Impact of maternal intermittent fasting on the development of metabolic disease in the offspring
  Dr N Ashton, Dr J Glazier
Applications accepted all year round
Pregnant Muslim women are exempt from the daily fast during the month of Ramadan; however many choose participate, wanting to share this experience with their families.
