  Designing better Rubisco for crops: Predicting effects of amino acid substitutions on Rubisco kinetics using machine learning
  Dr M Kapralov
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
The rapid growth of human population commands to increase crop yields by 50 - 70 % by 2050 in order to feed the predicted 9 - 10 billion people.
  Eurasian Corridors of Communication: Fruits, Crops, and Words
  Dr M Robbeets
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The plants on your kitchen table often have a poorly understood history, and an interdisciplinary approach is necessary to study their origin and spread.
  Cadmium and other Heavy Metals - Detection and Mitigation in Horticultural Produce, Soils and other Crops (CREDIT)
  Dr C Sullivan, Dr P J Cullen
Application Deadline: 2 January 2019
risk of failing European maximum levels (MLs) for cadmium (Cd). This project provides research to mitigate threats to Irish agricultural and horticultural production industries from heavy metal uptake and will develop practical solutions of international interest while building a national expertise in this area.
  Advanced Instrumentation Studentship: Moisture content measurement in crops using a novel Infrared hyperspectral imager.
  Dr C Bourgenot
Application Deadline: 28 June 2019
Advanced Instrumentation Studentship. Moisture content measurement in crops using a novel Infrared hyperspectral imager. Applications are invited for a 3.5 year fully funded PhD research studentship in the development of novel hyperspectral instrumentation to work with Dr.
  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.
  Domestication of Perennial Plants: Evolution and Dispersal
  Dr R Spengler
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Some of the most heavily investigated research topics in the sciences relate to the origins of agriculture. Over the past century and a half, scholars from across several fields of scholarship have dedicated their careers to the questions of when, where, how, and why plants and animals were first domesticated.
  Seed dormancy and germination: understanding the molecular basis to improve seed quality and seedling performance of horticultural and agricultural crops
  Prof G Leubner
Applications accepted all year round
Plant seeds and fruits are at the beginning and the end of most important food supply chains that are central to human existence (food security).
  Genetic Analysis of Complex Traits in Autotetraploid Crops including Potato
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr L Leach, Prof Z Luo
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Autopolyploidy is a characteristic shared by many important crops including potato, coffee, leek, sugarcane, alfalfa and some economically important aquaculture animals, including Atlantic salmon and trout.
  Engineering more water-use efficient crops: functional genomics of the circadian control of CO2 fixation associated with Crassulacean acid metabolism
  Dr J Hartwell
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
The world is getting hotter and drier due to climate change, and the human population is growing rapidly to the extent that it has been predicted that we will need to increase crop yields by 50 - 70 % by 2050 in order to feed the predicted 9 - 10 billion people.
  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).
