  Genetic Control of Plant and Crop Fertility: Understanding the Impact of Key Gene Networks on Pollen and Gamete Fitness
  Research Group: Behavioural & Developmental Genetics
  Prof D Twell, Dr R Badge
Applications accepted all year round
Plant fertility and food security depend upon the vital role of pollen grains, which deliver the male gametes required for fertilisation and seed production.
  China Scholarship Council PhD Programme: Molecular characterisation of plant disease resistance genes through novel Next-Generation Sequencing applications
  Dr I Hein
Application Deadline: 14 January 2019
This PhD project will provide comprehensive training for the successful candidate in potato genetics (diploid and tetraploid) as well as plant-pathogen genomics/co-evolution.
  BBSRC EASTBIO PhD Programme: Understanding gene networks influencing straw digestibility for industrial biotechnology
  Dr C Halpin, Prof R Waugh
Application Deadline: 10 December 2018
Huge potential exists for using waste plant biomass (straw, grain husks etc) as a renewable and sustainable feedstock for making fuels and chemicals or as animal feed.
  Nuclease-resistant DNA nanostructures for high precision plant genome engineering
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr C E West, Dr M Castronovo
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The recent development of targeted modification of plant genomes heralds a new era in biotechnology for the 21st century. This project will develop new approaches for plant genome engineering based on nanotechnology to design DNA structures that promote genome integration at a targeted site.
  Photoreceptor regulation of plant development
  Dr S Casson
Applications accepted all year round
Plant growth and development is highly dependent on the light environment. Light provides energy to drive photosynthesis but light quality and quantity is also perceived by photoreceptors, which signal to regulate responses enabling plants to adapt to their environment.
  China Scholarship Council PhD Programme: Understanding gene networks influencing straw digestibility for industrial biotechnology
  Dr C Halpin
Application Deadline: 14 January 2019
This project will essentially be data-driven, using large complex genomics and transcriptomics datasets and advanced bioinformatics to validate and expand gene networks and infer gene function.
  Newcastle-Liverpool-Durham Doctoral Training Partnership in Biosciences
The Newcastle-Liverpool-Durham DTP (http://www.nld-dtp.org.uk/) is a strategic Partnership in Biosciences doctoral training between three research-intensive universities in northern cities of great industrial heritage, Newcastle University, the University of Liverpool and Durham University.
  Living in the dark: Impact of winter warming on ecosystem stability in the terrestrial high Arctic
  Prof D Chadwick
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
The high Arctic is warming at an alarming rate, disrupting soil carbon, nutrient and hydrological cycles. This is resulting in increased soil microbial activity with subsequent increases in nutrient availability and hence plant productivity and nutrient losses to the wider environment.
