  Application of nanomaterials in precision agriculture to optimise nitrogen use efficiency and increase global food security
  Dr I Lynch, Dr S Ullah, Dr P Zhang, Mr A Witteveen
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The global agriculture sector is facing a wide spectrum of challenges such as stagnation in crop yields, notoriously low nutrient use efficiency (NUE), poor soil health, shrinking arable land and water availability etc.
  Integration of environmental signals in plants
  Prof G Bassel, Dr M Gifford
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants use a diversity of signals from the environment to make decisions during their life cycle. This project will focus on understanding how multiple signals from the environment are integrated to control seed dormancy.
  Nucleoside decoys, unravelling a novel plant pathogen virulence strategy
  Prof M Grant, Dr V Ntoukakis, Assoc Prof L Song
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ensuring food security is critically important to our next generation and this encompasses a increase in productivity of 50% by 2050! We currently we lose 25-40% of global crop production to plant pathogens, thus significant progress could be made through improved plant disease resistance.
  Learning from plant cell walls as a path for innovations in food and material sciences
  Dr Y Benitez-Alfonso, Dr C Bosch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The research will dissect the structural factors controlling cell walls and cell communication for two main purposes. to improve the health value of food crops and to design strategies for the valorisation of wasted plant materials.
  Using genotype-to-phenotype analyses to identify the genetic determinants of gastroenteritis caused by the food-borne pathogen Campylobacter jejuni
  Dr C D Bayliss, Prof J Ketley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Campylobacter jejuni is the major causative agent of foodborne gastroenteritis across Europe. Contaminated chicken meat is the main source of infections and hence control of this pathogen is critical to food security in the poultry industry.
  Porous Media for a Green World
  Dr N Shokri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sustainable use of soil and water resources is crucial to preserve healthy terrestrial ecosystems and maintaining food security.
  Plant and crop fertility: the evolution and impact of gene control networks
  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.
  Circadian rhythms in plant-microbe interactions
  Prof G Bending, Dr I A Carré
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants live in close association with complex communities of microbes which together constitute their ‘microbiome’. The microbiome interacts with the plant in numerous ways; some microbes are beneficial and promote plant growth, while others are pathogens which reduce crop yields.
  Understanding and combating blackhead disease in poultry
  Prof S Huws, Dr N Corcionivoschi, Prof C Creevey
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Histomonosis, also commonly referred to as blackhead disease, is a disease that infects several known species of gallinaceous fowl.

  The genetics of sex determination and sexual mode switching in crustaceans
  Dr R Hammond, Dr E Rosato
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is great interest in understanding the mechanisms by which sex is determined in aquaculture species in order to develop more sustainable and productive breeding [1] and so enhance food security, a BBSRC priority area.
