  From Structure-Function Studies to High Phytase Crops (HEMMINGSU20DTP)
  Dr A M Hemmings, Prof W Harwood
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Phytic acid is the major source of inorganic phosphate needed for growth found in the grains, oil seeds and beans of common animal feeds.
  Plant-microbial interactions: legume-rhizobial cover crops under drought and climate change
  Prof D Cameron, Dr E Harrison, Prof J Gray, Dr C Chater
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

To develop sustainable agriculture under climate change we need to tackle CO2 emissions and drought stress. Legume-rhizobial cover crops (leys) enhance carbon and nitrogen in soils, reducing vulnerability to drought and water pollution.
  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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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).
  Nutritious crops: genomic approaches to improving the nutritional and commercial value of oilseed rape
  Prof Ian Bancroft, Dr A Harper
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oilseed rape is the third largest source of vegetable oil in the world. It is also a fascinating species in which to undertake genomic studies due to its polyploid ancestry.
  Agronomic investigations of Australian native rice species to support Indigenous enterprise development in the Northern Territory, Australia.
  Dr S Bellairs, Dr P Wurm
Application Deadline: 24 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

About the opportunity. This CRC Future Food Systems project focusses on agronomic investigations into Australian native rice. It is part of a broader research program into the commercialisation of Australian native rice species.
  The role of species-combination pollination systems in crop production, crop stress responses and fruit/vegetable quality
  Dr S Arnold
Application Deadline: 10 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The production of many key crops involved in nutrition security (especially as a source of vitamins) benefits strongly from insect pollination, e.g.
  Plant responses to stress, metabolites for health and fuel from cell walls.
  Prof A Devoto
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  A helping hand: signal transduction in plant immunity (BANFIELDJ20DTP)
  Prof M Banfield
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant diseases are a continuous threat to food production and a major constraint on achieving global food security. One approach to restricting plant diseases is to understand how plant immune receptors recognise the presence of pathogens and transduce signals that lead to disease resistance.
  Modelling the effects of climate change on European yields of oilseed rape (PENFIELDUJIC20ARIES)
  Dr S Penfield
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change is now widely understood to be impacting food supplies. Ensuring future food security will require understanding how climate change will affect crop yields in different agricultural systems and the design of appropriate measures for adaptation.
  Predicting tuber dry matter concentration in potato
  Dr M Stalham, Prof H Griffiths
Application Deadline: 14 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisors. Dr Mark Stalham (NIAB CUF), Prof. Howard Griffiths (University of Cambridge). The dry matter concentration of potato tubers is an important quality attribute, particularly for the production of crisps and french fries but also for fresh produce.
