  Studying chloroplast biogenesis in the basal land plant Marchantia polymorpha: Using CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing and forward genetics to assess functional conservation and seek novel components
  Prof P Jarvis, Prof L Dolan
Applications accepted all year round
Chloroplasts are responsible for photosynthesis, and are the organelles that define plants [1]. They evolved as a result of an endosymbiotic relationship between a cyanobacterium and an algal progenitor, in a process that began over a billion years ago.
  Conservation genomics of Sulawesi vertebrates
  Dr L Frantz, Prof S Rossiter, Dr S Brace
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
We are currently seeking highly motivated PhD student for a fully-funded project to start in September 2019. The project will focus on analysing molecular data from museum and modern samples to unravel the population histories of endemic vertebrates in SE Indonesia.
  An integrated study of genetics and silviculture in Continuous Cover Forestry in Britain
  Prof J Mackay
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
SUPERVISORS. Professor John MacKay (University of Oxford), Dr Gary Kerr (Forest Research). -----------------------------------------------------------------------.
  Comparing Biodiversity and Ecosystem Functions of Restored and Natural Mangrove Forests in Indonesia using Palynology and plant DNA metabarcoding (Ref: OP19_23)
  Prof U Salzmann
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Mangrove forests are uniquely valuable tropical coastal wetlands in the transition zone be- tween land and sea that suffer significant destruction worldwide.
  Evolution of Reproductive traits - to elucidate the genetic and developmental basis of reproductive failure
  Dr N Hemmings
Applications accepted all year round
Sexual selection is underpinned by variation in reproductive success. Our research group studies the mechanisms underpinning this variation, primarily using birds as a model.
  Microbial Drivers of Coralline Algae Ecosystem Function
  Research Group: Institute of Life and Earth Sciences
  Dr H Burdett
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
This project will combine advanced microbial ecology, biogeochemistry and ecological techniques to investigate the role of microbial communities in driving ecosystem function in maerl beds.
  Understanding the life strategy of geophytes and their behaviour in extreme environments
  Dr L Frankova
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project is part of the ONE Planet DTP. Find out more here. https://research.ncl.ac.uk/one-planet/. Perennials are long-living plants that resist extreme weather and growth conditions such as drought, flooding, nutrient-deficiency and competition.
  Bioinformatic studies of mobile DNAs in vertebrates
  Prof J F Y Brookfield, Prof O Hanotte
Applications accepted all year round
44% of the human genome, and similar proportions in other vertebrate species, consists of mobile DNAs or their inactive descendants.
