  Seasonality control of barley flowering: from the lab to the field
  Prof S J Davis, Dr A Harper
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Flowering time is a critical developmental transition in barley, as the plant stops making leaves and allocates resources to reproduction.
  Bloom and bust: how do plants know when to stop flowering?
  Research Group: Centre for Plant Sciences
  Dr T.A. Bennett
Application Deadline: 20 December 2018
We know a very large amount about the signals and mechanisms that lead to the initiation of flowering (the ‘floral transition’) in plants.
  Studying chloroplast biogenesis in the basal land plant Marchantia polymorpha: Using CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing and forward genetics to assess functional conservation and seek novel components
  Prof P Jarvis, Prof L Dolan
Applications accepted all year round
Chloroplasts are responsible for photosynthesis, and are the organelles that define plants [1]. They evolved as a result of an endosymbiotic relationship between a cyanobacterium and an algal progenitor, in a process that began over a billion years ago.
  Fundamental requirements for branching in plants
  Dr J Harrison
Applications accepted all year round
Branching is a key determinant of crop yields because it affects the positioning of organs around stems, and hence light interception and productivity.
  Unpicking a novel plant microbe symbiosis: bacteria as a source of odour in carrion flowers.
  Dr B Raymond, Dr R Griffiths
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Location. University of Exeter, Penryn Campus, Penryn, Cornwall TR10 9FE. This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  SCENARIO: Climate change impacts on UK apple production and quality
  Prof R Ellis, Prof P Hadley, Dr M Ordidge, Mr T Biddlecombe
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Future food and nutritional security requires sustainable food production systems in future, different climates. Perennial crops such as top fruit (apples, pears, plums, cherries, etc) are more sustainable than annual crops.
  Integration of metabolic and developmental cues by the Arabidopsis endosperm
  Dr V Andriotis
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Seeds of flowering plants are made of distinct tissues – the embryo, endosperm and integuments – that collectively make a functional unit.
  Woodland insect responses to climate change
  Dr S Hayward, Dr J P Sadler, Dr C Pfrang
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Forest/woodland systems are major source of biodiversity globally and also play a crucial role in carbon capture/mitigating against rising CO2 levels.
  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.
