  Characterising genetic diversity of Wild Rocket (Diplotaxis tenuifolia (L.) DC) and developing a pipeline for marker assisted breeding
  Dr P Walley
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Food Security has risen to the top of the international agenda following recent spikes in the price of food and the perceived growing threat to future supplies (see, e.g., the “G8 Action on Food Security and Nutrition” http://www.state.gov/s/globalfoodsecurity/190282.htm).
  Resistance and susceptibility in interactions between apple and woolly aphids (Ref: CTP_FCR_2019_6)
  Ms F Fernández, Dr G Powell
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.
  Making the male: the impact of germline gene networks on plant and crop fertility
  Prof D Twell, Dr R Badge
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Plant fertility and food security depend upon sexual reproduction and the vital role of the male and female germlines which differentiate to produce sperm and female (egg) gametes.
  Finding sustainable solutions to witchweed (Striga) infection of finger millet in Kenya.
  Dr A.C Brennan, Dr S Chivasa, Dr L Blake
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
The project will address major developmental challenges in the sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) region, primarily food insecurity and malnutrition focused on Kenya as a case study.
  Imprinting and ploidy in a social insect
  Dr E Mallon, Dr E Rosato
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
This project asks how can imprinted genes exist in a haplodiploid organism.
  SCENARIO: Climate change impacts on UK apple production and quality
  Prof R Ellis, Prof P Hadley, Dr M Ordidge, Mr T Biddlecombe
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Future food and nutritional security requires sustainable food production systems in future, different climates. Perennial crops such as top fruit (apples, pears, plums, cherries, etc) are more sustainable than annual crops.
  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
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.
  Carbon sequestration potential of apple rootstocks: the role of root recalcitrance, rhizodeposition, and the rhizosphere microbiome (Ref: CTP_FCR_2019_5)
  Dr F O'Brien, Prof M Tibbett, Prof M Lukac
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.
  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.
