  Sustainable approaches to crop protection: silicon supplementation and its effects on symbiont-mediated multitrophic interactions
  Dr J Ferrari, Prof S Hartley
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Outbreaks of insect pests damage crops and are predicted to increase under climate change. Controlling them with synthetic pesticides is environmentally damaging and sustainable alternatives are urgently needed.
  Protein engineering to enhance the commercial potential of novel fusion protein based biopesticides
  Dr E Fitches
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
This project will appeal to students interested in the field of agricultural biotechnology and crop protection who have an interest in protein engineering and in working with invertebrates.
  Development of Polymeric Nanocarriers in Continuous Flow for the Controlled Release of Agrochemicals
  Dr F Vilela, Dr V Arrighi
Application Deadline: 8 February 2019
In recent years, there has been major advances in the area of nanotechnology applied to agriculture and the environment. Nonetheless, many issues remain to be addressed for this technology to have a significant impact.
  (BBSRC DTP CASE) A synthetic biology approach to develop bacterial protein expression tools
  Prof J Micklefield, Dr A Green
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Streptomyces and related bacteria possess diverse biosynthetic pathways that produce a wide array of bioactive natural compounds including antibiotics, anti-cancer agents and other therapeutically important molecules.
  Dynamics, function and influence of gut microbiome in pesticides resistance
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr L Orsini, Prof J B Brown, Dr S Hayward
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Background. The development of insecticide resistance is a worldwide concern and elucidating the underlying mechanisms is critical for effective crop protection and human health.
  Post-translational regulation of transcription dynamics in plant immunity
  Research Group: Institute of Molecular Plant Sciences
  Dr S Spoel, Dr G van Ooijen
Application Deadline: 13 December 2018
Precise regulation of gene transcription is vital for all organisms. In eukaryotes, dynamic changes in gene transcription orchestrate cell development and cellular responses to the ever changing environment.
  Synthetic Resistance to Potato Blight
  Prof R Van der Hoorn
Applications accepted all year round
The oomycete potato pathogen Phytophthora infestans has caused devastation during the Irish Potato Famine in the 1840s. P. infestans still causes major problems in the potato industry, and is mostly controlled using agrochemicals.
  PhD in Plants and Microbes: crop production and protection, the interaction between plants and other plants, pests and pathogens, and soils, and the interactions of ecosystems with global change
  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.
  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.
  Exploiting induced resistance for trait enhancement in hydroponically-grown crops
  Dr E Luna-Diez
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Due to their increasing unsuitability and the fact that they are increasingly looked down upon socially, the use of pesticides in agricultural fields has been highly legislated.
