  How will global crop production develop under climate change? Improving our predictive capability.
  Dr T Pugh, Prof M Tausz
Applications accepted all year round
Crop yields are highly sensitive to climate, with even relatively moderate climate change, such as that aimed for by the Paris agreement, placing future food security in doubt (Pugh et al., 2016).
  Elucidating infection at the plant-microbe interphase on a cellular, molecular and structural level to improve crop resistance and support food security
  Dr C Voigt
Applications accepted all year round
Achieving food security is one of the most important global challenges. Crop production and yield has been increasingly threatened by plant pathogens in a rapidly changing environment.
  Hitting the sweet spot - phenotyping tissue integrity to reduce sugar losses during the harvest and storage of sugar beet (Beta vulgaris).
  Dr J Monaghan
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
PhD Studentship (42 months funding including a 6 months paid work placement). Background. Sugar beet is a major crop grown in temperate countries as a source of dietary sugar.
  Crop pollination, pest regulation and soil management: Ecological intensification for sustainable food production
  Dr M Garratt, Dr T Breeze
Applications accepted all year round
Growing populations are placing an ever-increasing demand on agricultural systems to provide sufficient foods, particularly in the developing world.
  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).
  Multistep Phosphorelay Signaling in Crop Stress
  Prof J Hejátko
Application Deadline: 3 February 2019
In our lab we are interested in the study of plant hormonal signaling pathways, particularly cytokinins (CKs) in the development of model plant Arabidopsis thaliana (1-4).
  Fostering sustainability through organic waste re-use: drivers for adoption and pathways for diffusion in Sub-Saharan Africa
  Prof J Smith, Dr M Bozzola
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Efficient re-use of organic wastes is of critical importance to the productivity of small-holder farm households in many parts of Sub-Saharan Africa (Smith et al., 2015).
  Multi-functional Agroecosystems: Exploiting Biodiversity for Sustainable Production
  Prof M Emmerson, Dr Y Arn Teh
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project will be supervised by Professor Mark Emmerson of Queen’s University School of Biological Sciences and by Dr Yit Arn Teh of University of Aberdeen’s Institute of Biological and Environmental Sciences.
  Epigenetic changes in Plant Acclimation.
  Prof T Lawson, Dr R Zabet
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Scientific background. Plants, including all our crop plants, live in a dynamic environment with external conditions varying over the day and season and these signals influence how a plant grows and how productive it is.
  (BBSRC DTP) Manipulating plant genetic diversity to improve resilience in grasslands
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Prof D Johnson, Prof R Bardgett, Dr M Semchenko
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
For years the agricultural sector has pursued cultivation of crops with identical genetic properties so that variation in the resulting phenotype is as small as possible.
