  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.
  Genome-based resources for Fixation-Restitution breeding in potato
  Dr D Milbourne, Dr H van Eck
Application Deadline: 4 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for a PhD candidate who is interested in helping to re-invent potato breeding using innovative biotechnology and genomics-based approaches.
  Plant and crop fertility: the evolution and impact of gene control networks
  Prof D Twell, Dr R Badge
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant fertility is vitally dependent upon sexual reproduction and the differentiation of male (sperm) and female (egg) gametes. Despite the importance of this process for future food security we have limited knowledge of the mechanisms involved in gamete development.
  Resistance by Elimination (NICHOLSONJ20CASE)
  Prof P Nicholson
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Wheat is one of the most important cereal crops in the world and provides 20% of the protein and calories for 4.5 billion people.
  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.
  Accelerating disease resistance breeding for diploid potato germplasm improvement (JONESS20CASE)
  Prof J Jones
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pests and diseases reduce crop yields, requiring agrichemical sprays. We aim to replace agrichemicals with genetic resistance for pest and disease control.
  PhD in Plants and Microbes: crop production and protection, the interaction between plants and other plants, pests and pathogens, and soils, and the interactions of ecosystems with global change
  Dr D Childs
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants underpin life on Earth. In Sheffield, world leading plant research is undertaken across all scales from the molecular level through to the leaf and root, whole plant and ecosystem.
  Understanding protein impact on soft wheat flour functionality: identification of protein markers for soft wheat breeding.
  Dr P Tosi, Prof D O'Sullivan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is a fantastic opportunity to work at pre-breeding of soft wheat, specifically targeting its processing quality for the bakery sector.
  Understanding protein impact on soft wheat flour functionality: identification of protein markers for soft wheat breeding.
  Dr P Tosi, Prof D O'Sullivan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is a fantastic opportunity to work at pre-breeding of soft wheat, specifically targeting its processing quality for the bakery sector.
  Nutritious crops: genomic approaches to improving the nutritional and commercial value of oilseed rape
  Prof Ian Bancroft, Dr A Harper
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oilseed rape is the third largest source of vegetable oil in the world. It is also a fascinating species in which to undertake genomic studies due to its polyploid ancestry.
