  Seasonality control of barley flowering: from the lab to the field
  Prof S J Davis, Dr A Harper
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Flowering time is a critical developmental transition in barley, as the plant stops making leaves and allocates resources to reproduction.
  Developing a High-Throughput Platform in Barley to Screen for Resistance to Aphids
  Dr J Russell, Prof R Waugh, Dr J Bos
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Aphids are economically important pests globally, and can cause significant yield loss of crops, including barley. Currently there are no commercial barley cultivars that are resistant against aphids, and only limited sources of partial resistance have been reported to date.
  Host proteins targeted by the CSEP family 21 effectors from the biotrophic pathogenic fungus Blumeria graminis causing powdery mildew in barley
  Dr L Bindschedler, Dr T Bozkurt
Application Deadline: 15 January 2019
Fungi are major actors in spoiling crops and reducing food yield. Among them, powdery mildews are a class of obligate fungal pathogens affecting major agricultural and horticultural crops such as cereals, grape, zucchini or strawberry, thus having a major impact on food production, in the UK and globally.
  Managing Rare Arable Weeds to Promote Soil Function and Support Maintenance of Barley Yields
  Dr R Brooker, Prof R Pakeman, Dr J Rowntree
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Background. There is increasing concern about an ongoing decline in biodiversity, particularly as a consequence of agricultural intensification [1].
  The Role of E3 Ligases on the Modulation of Recombination in Cereals
  Dr I Colas, Dr L Ramsay, Prof R Waugh
Application Deadline: 5 January 2019
Summary. In barley and wheat substantial proportions of the chromosomes are inherited together as a large linkage block, preventing the generation of novel gene combinations and useful variation that could be exploited in breeding programs.
  Ecological Function of a Water-sensing Molecular Fossil
  Research Group: Institute of Life and Earth Sciences
  Dr P C Morris, Dr J Thompson, Dr R Alexander
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Abiotic stress tolerance in plants is a critical attribute and a key objective for plant breeders. The world is experiencing unprecedented increases in average global temperatures and extreme weather events leading to intermittent periods of drought and waterlogging (water stress).
  China Scholarship Council PhD Programme: Understanding gene networks influencing straw digestibility for industrial biotechnology
  Dr C Halpin
Application Deadline: 14 January 2019
This project will essentially be data-driven, using large complex genomics and transcriptomics datasets and advanced bioinformatics to validate and expand gene networks and infer gene function.
  Intervention management options for algal blooms: working with the Canal and River Trust
  Dr R Perkins
Application Deadline: 17 December 2018
The Canal and River Trust own and manage over 2000 miles of waterways used for a wide range of recreational purposes and which also support a highly important aquatic biodiversity and scarce and rare species of wildlife.
  Novel Computational Method Development for Shotgun Proteomics
  Dr R Zhang, Dr D Lewandowska, Dr P Hemsley
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Background. Mass spectrometry (MS) based proteomics is the method of choice for characterizing proteins to understand biological functions and processes, elucidate signaling networks, discover disease biomarkers for human and identify key genes underlying important traits in plants.
  From start to finish: roles for the N-end rule pathway of protein degradation in plant development and stress-response
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr D Gibbs
Applications accepted all year round
In order to effectively co-ordinate their growth and development, plants need to be able to respond to changes in their environment, whether it is adapting to the seasons or coping with stresses.
