  PhD: Enhancing utilisation of alternative crops using fermentation
  Dr Y Lim
Applications accepted all year round
Supervisors. Yin Sze Lim(PI) (Biosciences, UNM), John Brameld (Biosciences, UK), Tim Parr(Biosciences, UK), Andy Salter (Biosciences, UK).
  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).
  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).
  National Tree Genomics – Functional Genotype Prediction For Horticulture
  Dr C Cazzonelli
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
Horticulture is a highly valuable industry within the Australian agricultural sector. Tree crops account for half of the horticulture industry’s value, with mango, macadamia, avocado, almond and citrus being the major Australian horticultural tree crops.
  Plant responses to stress, metabolites for health and fuel from cell walls.
  Prof A Devoto
Applications accepted all year round
Projects are available in the following areas. Stress responses in crops and sustainable biomass production and processing. The project aims at elucidating several aspects of the control of plant defences and to identify environmentally friendly forms of plant protectants, leading to enhanced crop yields.
  Mechanisms controlling the biogenesis and functions of chloroplasts in plants: protein transport and the ubiquitin-proteasome system
  Prof P Jarvis
Applications accepted all year round
Our research is focused on the biogenesis of chloroplasts and other plastids in plants, particularly in relation to the import of nucleus-encoded proteins and the role of the ubiquitin-proteasome system.
  RNAi as a pest management tool in Aphids
  Dr T Davies, Dr S Foster
Application Deadline: 23 April 2019
This project seeks to optimize dsRNAi design and delivery in sap feeding aphids of relevance to AHDB.
  Designing Crop Rotations that are Fit for Future
  Dr C Watson
Application Deadline: 7 May 2019
Crop rotations have been at the centre of agricultural systems throughout history. In modern agriculture, the main purpose of rotating crops is to reduce the incidence of diseases, pests or weeds that are difficult to control with pesticides.
  PhD Molecular Plant Pathology
  Dr A Feechan
Application Deadline: 29 April 2019
Fungal pathogens cause disease in crop plants dramatically reducing yields and quality. Preventing fungal disease in crops would ensure global food security and reduce agricultural inputs with respect to fungicide application.
  Understanding signalling networks underpinning key developmental processes during plant evolution
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr J C Coates
Applications accepted all year round
Plants first appeared on land almost half a billion years ago. All land plants likely evolved from a single aquatic green algal ancestor.
