  Functional assignment of Papain-like Cys proteases in plant development and immunity
  Prof R Van der Hoorn
Applications accepted all year round
The rapid and structured disassembly of plant proteomes during germination, senescence and defence are massive proteolytic events that underpin plant development and immunity.
  How do plants roll dice? Genetic features underlying variability in plant development
  Dr I Johnston, Dr G Bassel
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Plants feed the world, but a fundamental tension exists between the past evolutionary priorities of plants and our current priorities for using them in agricultural settings.
  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
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
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.
  Ph.D. position: Brassinosteroid-dependent Systemic Signals in Plant Development
  Prof C Hardtke
Applications accepted all year round
A fully funded Ph.D. position is available (flexible starting date in 2018) in the lab of Prof. Christian Hardtke at the Department of Plant Molecular Biology, University of Lausanne, Switzerland.
  Epigenetic control of transcription termination in plant development
  Dr M Papamichos-Chronakis
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
This project will investigate the mechanism and function of epigenetic regulation of transcriptional termination in eukaryotes (from budding yeast to plants).
  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.
  Fundamental requirements for branching in plants
  Dr J Harrison
Applications accepted all year round
Branching is a key determinant of crop yields because it affects the positioning of organs around stems, and hence light interception and productivity.
  China Scholarship Council PhD Programme: How does protein S-acylation regulate plant growth and development?
  Dr P Hemsley
Application Deadline: 14 January 2019
S-acylation is an emerging lipid based post-translational modification affecting up to 40% membrane proteins. We have found that S-acylation in plants is a dynamic process allowing for regulation of protein function.
  Understanding signalling networks underpinning key developmental processes during plant evolution
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr J C Coates
Applications accepted all year round
Plants first appeared on land almost half a billion years ago. All land plants likely evolved from a single aquatic green algal ancestor.
