  From start to finish: roles for the N-end rule pathway of protein degradation in plant development and stress-response
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr D Gibbs
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In order to effectively co-ordinate their growth and development, plants need to be able to respond to changes in their environment, whether it is adapting to the seasons or coping with stresses.
  Photoreceptor regulation of plant development
  Dr S Casson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  PhD in plant genetics and molecular biology
  Dr L Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

My group is interested in understanding aspects of basic plant biology, primarily through the application of molecular biology and genetics.
  Wheat development in a changing world
  Research Group: Centre for Plant Sciences
  Dr L Dixon, Dr A Bretman
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

How do we feed a growing population in a sustainable way during an era of unprecedented climate change? A key component to meeting this challenge is to develop crops which are innately robust against climate change without requiring more chemical inputs to maintain yield.
  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.
  Plant responses to stress, metabolites for health and fuel from cell walls.
  Prof A Devoto
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Projects are available in the following areas. Stress responses in crops and sustainable biomass production and processing. The project aims at elucidating several aspects of the control of plant defences and to identify environmentally friendly forms of plant protectants, leading to enhanced crop yields.
  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.
  Plant Stem Cell formation
  Prof T Laux
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are seeking highly motivated candidates for a newly funded PhD position in plant embryo development. The goal is to investigate how the stem cells of the shoot meristem are formed during embryo development.
