  Funded 4-Year PhD in Plant Ecology (functional ecology, leaf traits, extinction, palaeobotany)
  Dr K Bacon
Application Deadline: 1 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Department of Botany & Plant Sciences, NUI Galway, is seeking a highly qualified and ambitious candidate to undertake a PhD in Dr Karen Bacon’s Plant Ecology lab focused on investigating relationships between leaf functional traits and extinction risk in plants.
  Plant-insect interactions in a changing world
  Dr S Gripenberg
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Insects associated with plants comprise one of the most diverse groups of species on earth. Their impact on the ecology and evolution of their host plants is widely recognised, as is their contribution to a number of important ecosystem functions.
  Unravelling and modelling endogenous controls of plant respiration. PhD in Geography (NERC GW4+ DTP)
  Prof S Sitch
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr Stephen Sitch, Department of Georgraphy, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter. Additional Supervisors.
  Developing phage therapy to control plant pathogenic bacteria in the rhizosphere microbiome
  Dr V Friman
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant pathogenic bacteria cause considerable economic losses to food production systems. The main reason for this is that hardly any effective control methods exist to mitigate this damage.
  The impacts of climate change on pollinator-plant interactions
  Dr R Whitlock, Dr K L Evans, Dr C García
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change has pervasive impacts on biological diversity, determining species persistence, geographical distributions, trait expression and genetic composition.
  Resolving the limitations on plant growth and biomass
  Research Group: Centre for Plant Sciences
  Dr T.A. Bennett, Dr S Batterman
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

What limits primary productivity in plants remains a major question relevant across scales and biological systems. Agronomists and farmers have long sought the factors that support efficient accumulation of biomass in order to maximize crop production.
  Will rising CO2 concentrations save plants from drought stress? Plant ecophysiological responses in a Free Air CO2 Enrichment experiment
