  Elucidating infection at the plant-microbe interphase on a cellular, molecular and structural level to improve crop resistance and support food security
  Dr C Voigt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Achieving food security is one of the most important global challenges. Crop production and yield has been increasingly threatened by plant pathogens in a rapidly changing environment.
  Tackling the fungal threat to global food security
  Prof S Avery, Dr M Brock
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fungi cause diseases of crops and spoilage of foods that cause losses of up to a third of food yield. This is a major global challenge given the world’s growing population and need for more food, while climate change is predicted to limit food supply in the future.
  Assessing and improving resilience of cereal production in South Asia to climate variability and change
  Dr B Parkes, Dr T Foster
Application Deadline: 15 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cereal production systems, in particular wheat and rice, constitute the main source of food security and incomes for millions of smallholder farmers across South Asia.
  Faculty of Health and Life Sciences

Funding Type

PhD Type

World class teaching facilities with an emphasis on interdisciplinary research and the generation of impact. The University of Liverpool provides one of the largest concentrations of health and life science expertise in the UK.
  Socio-Economic and Policy Impacts of Technology in Food Sector
  Dr U Ramanathan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Technology plays a great impactful role in our routine life and also in profit-making businesses. This technology has been adopted successfully in different sectors such as health care, manufacturing and service sectors to enhance overall performance.
  Turning Up the Heat on Pest Insect Reproduction: Optimising Thermal Control in Dry Food Storage Facilities (GAGEU20DTP)
  Prof M Gage, Dr L Spurgin
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Stored product insect pests seriously damage global food production, especially in developing countries. Chemical methods to control these pests are either becoming regulated due to health concerns or environmental damage, or have become less effective as resistance evolves.
  Combining large-scale aerial phenotyping and advanced computational solutions toincrease yield for UK bread wheat (ZHOUE20DTP)
  Dr J Zhou
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Accomplishing an AI-driven PhD is likely to position yourself in an excellent state in this rapidly changing world. It is not only about opening up top-paying jobs in finance and gaming, but also enabling you to address major big-data challenges that we are facing, day by day.
  The functional importance of plant-fungal interactions in agri-ecosystems
  Prof D Johnson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most land plants have evolved symbioses with soil-borne mycorrhizal fungi, which provide nutritional benefits to both partners and are key to their fitness.
  Statistical genetics and genomics of complex traits
  Dr L Leach, Prof Z Luo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A highly motivated student is sought to train as a statistical geneticist working on the dissection of complex trait phenotypes in human, plant and animal populations into their underlying genetic components.
  Plant breeding for food safety
  Dr G Taylor, Prof B Keevil
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Food security often focuses on food production, but reduced food waste and enhanced quality and safety are important targets for food resilience.
