  Using cold adapted photobionts to improve photosynthesis in economically important organisms
  Dr M Kapralov, Dr J Telling
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Interested in saving the planet and solving global food security while learning synthetic and organismal biology and biochemistry?.
  Why does C4 photosynthesis rarely evolve in trees?
  Dr M Lundgren
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
C4 photosynthesis is an ultra-efficient mode plant physiology that is used by our most productive food and bioenergy crops, including maize, sugarcane, and miscanthus.
  Investigating Photosynthesis in Nannochloropsis – An Important Algal Genus for Biofuel Production
  Dr D J Gilmour
Applications accepted all year round
One of the key insights from phylogenetic studies of eukaryotic microorganisms is the enormous diversity within the microalgal group with green algae being similar to plants and other groups such as diatoms being very different.
  Engineering The Rice Leaf for Improved Photosynthesis
  Prof A Fleming
Applications accepted all year round
Improving photosynthetic efficiency has been identified as one of the few remaining traits for exploitation if we are to achieve the significant increases in crop yield required to feed the projected 9 billion world population by 2050.
  Biophysics of light-induced motility in microalgae
  Dr M Polin
Applications accepted all year round
At a glance. The project focusses on the mechanisms by which motile microalgae (prominent e.g. within phytoplankton) sense, elaborate and respond to light.
  Toward Artificial Photosynthesis: understanding how porphyrin’s structure and environment influence the early electronic and nuclear dynamics
  Dr A Chauvet
Applications accepted all year round
The Sun represents an unlimited source of energy that can be harvested and ultimately converted to electricity. Solar energy is therefore the solution to not only depart from fossil fuels, but also to respond to the ever-increasing energy needs of our society.
  To determine if global N and P availability explains why most plant genomes are small, despite a huge range in angiosperm genome sizes
  Prof AR Leitch, Dr IJ Leitch
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Angiosperms (flowering plants) not only have the largest range in genome size (GS) for any comparable eukaryotic group, varying c.
  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).
  Regulation of photosynthetic electron transfer by dynamic thylakoid membrane stacking
  Dr M Johnson
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
Photosynthetic efficiency has been demonstrated to be limiting factor for fertilised crop plants and manipulation of its regulation a proven a route to improve both yield and stress tolerance1.
