  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.
  London Interdisciplinary Biosciences Consortium (LIDo)
The London Interdisciplinary Biosciences Consortium (LIDo) is one of the largest BBSRC funded Doctoral Training Partnerships in the UK.
  Understanding and predicting specificity and selectivity in auxin receptor complex formation
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr S Kepinski, Dr I Manfield
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The formation of the TIR1/AFB-auxin-Aux/IAA auxin co-receptor complex is one of the most pivotal protein/ligand interaction events in plant biology.
  Plant genetics and molecular biology - dissecting the role of receptor-like kinases
  Dr L Smith
Applications accepted all year round
My group is interested in understanding aspects of basic plant biology, primarily through the application of molecular biology and genetics.
  Resolving the limitations on plant growth and biomass
  Dr T.A. Bennett, Dr S Batterman
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
"What limits primary productivity in plants remains a major question relevant across scales and biological systems. Agronomists and farmers have long sought the factors that support efficient accumulation of biomass in order to maximize crop production.
  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.
  Mechanisms controlling the biogenesis and functions of chloroplasts in plants: protein transport and the ubiquitin-proteasome system
  Prof P Jarvis
Applications accepted all year round
Our research is focused on the biogenesis of chloroplasts and other plastids in plants, particularly in relation to the import of nucleus-encoded proteins and the role of the ubiquitin-proteasome system.
  PhD in agricultural biology - forecasting management and economics of climate change
  Prof R Freckleton
Applications accepted all year round
The world faces a major challenge to ensure the security of food supplies in the face of threats resulting from climate change, growing population and the development of resistance to pesticides.
  The importance of metal binding for the function of rice proteins that interact with pathogen effectors
  Prof C Dennison
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Global demand for food is rising and plant pathogens are one of a number of major threats to crop harvests. Plant pathogens produce effector proteins that remodel host cell processes for the benefit of the pathogen, resulting in disease.
  Hitting the sweet spot - phenotyping tissue integrity to reduce sugar losses during the harvest and storage of sugar beet (Beta vulgaris).
  Dr J Monaghan
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
PhD Studentship (42 months funding including a 6 months paid work placement). Background. Sugar beet is a major crop grown in temperate countries as a source of dietary sugar.
