  Primed for parasitism: pathogenic nematodes tailor their response to host plant exudates.
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Prof P E Urwin, Dr K. Field
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Background. Plant-parasitic nematodes are a major threat to global food security, causing billions of dollars of crop losses to agriculture throughout the world.
  Devonian Tropical Plant Assemblages from Arctic Svalbard
  Dr C Berry
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Project Background. The Devonian period (419-359 million years ago) is the critical time in Earth history when land plants evolved from being ankle high simple branched naked twigs to being leafy trees growing in complex forest ecosystems (Stein et al.
  An experimental and macroecological investigation of precipitation effects on Arctic plant root traits
  Dr F Schrodt
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
The Arctic tundra is particularly exposed to climate change, with warming of up to 5°C measured during the 20th century, and substantial increases in precipitation predicted for the 21st century.
  Modelling plant trade networks and their response to plant diseases
  Prof A Kleczkowski
Applications accepted all year round
The dispersal of plant diseases is among the most important side effects of a closely integrated global economy. There are many examples of plant diseases that were introduced to the UK and other countries by trade, including Phytophthora ramorum, Dutch elm disease and ash dieback.
  How does nutritional status affect plant immunity? (Ref: CTP_FCR_2019_3)
  Dr R Harrison
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
The Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC ) have awarded a Collaborative Training Partnership (CTP) grant to a consortium led by Berry Gardens Growers Ltd and NIAB EMR.
  How do plants roll dice? Genetic features underlying variability in plant development
  Dr I Johnston, Dr G Bassel
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Plants feed the world, but a fundamental tension exists between the past evolutionary priorities of plants and our current priorities for using them in agricultural settings.
  Apoplastic signalling in the interaction between plant-parasitic nematodes and their host plants
  Research Group: Centre for Plant Sciences
  Prof P E Urwin
Application Deadline: 20 December 2018
Plant-parasitic nematodes are economically important crop pathogens that cause billions of dollars of crop losses to agriculture throughout the world.
  Testing impacts of ant-plant protection mutualisms on plant community dynamics in Papua New Guinea
  Dr T Fayle, Prof V Novotny, Dr P Klimes
Application Deadline: 28 December 2018
A highly motivated postgraduate student is sought to join a project exploring the effects of ant inhabitation of trees on plant community dynamics.
  The interactive effects of climate change and plant species invasion on plant and microbial trait diversity
  Dr J Deslippe
Applications accepted all year round
This PhD project addresses the interactive effects of climate change and plant species invasion on plant and microbial trait diversity and ecosystem processes along elevational gradients in Tongariro National Park, New Zealand, with a particular emphasis on mycorrhizas and plant root traits.
  Iron Homeostasis in Bacterial Plant Colonization and Disease
  Dr A Holmes, Dr N Holden, Prof S C Andrews
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Iron is an essential nutrient in all orders of life. Since uptake is hampered by insolubility, plants and bacteria have evolved mechanisms for active sequestration, through the secretion of chelators called siderophores, and uptake via transport mechanisms.
