  PhD in cellular and structural biology - Elucidating infection at the plant-microbe interphase to define targets for crop breeding
  Dr C Voigt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.

  Dr D Chandler, Dr G Teakle
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The diamondback moth (DBM) Plutella xylostella is a brassica-feeding specialist and one of the most important pests worldwide, causing US$5 billion crop losses globally p.a.
  Design of Experiments for Network Science
  Dr B Parker
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Design of Experiments (DOE) is a research area within statistics that allows scientists to maximise the amount of information derived from an experiment.
  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 C Voigt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.

  Research Group: Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership (MIBTP)
  Prof D Twell, Dr R Badge
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant fertility is vitally dependent upon sexual reproduction and the differentiation of the male (sperm) and female (egg) gametes.
  Rebuilding soil quality and crop performance in arable farming by herbal leys
  Prof J Leake
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Intensively cultivated arable soils that have been used to grow annual crops for decades often suffer from low organic matter content and weak structure.

Biology is undergoing a revolution as ‘omic technologies allow us to make hundreds or thousands of measurements on large populations of plants.
  How does clubroot obtain nutrients from its living plant host?
  Dr S A Rolfe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Clubroot is an important pathogen of Brassica crops. The disease is found throughout the world and causes severe economic losses.
  Finding the right fungal friends: determining how plant defences against against insect herbivores are impacted by different mycorrhizal fungal communities.
  Dr A Frew
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Almost all plants on the planet are attacked by at least one, if not many, insect herbivores. Many of these insects have become pests of crops and they impact crop productivity.
  Strategies for Increasing Crop Stress Tolerance
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Dr G Johnson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Humanity is facing a growing food crisis – the “perfect storm” of growing world populations and changing climates mean we urgently need to increase crop productivity, including by increasing environmental stress tolerance.
