  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.
  Devonian Tropical Plant Assemblages from Arctic Svalbard
  Dr C Berry
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Project Background. The Devonian period (419-359 million years ago) is the critical time in Earth history when land plants evolved from being ankle high simple branched naked twigs to being leafy trees growing in complex forest ecosystems (Stein et al.
  Studying chloroplast biogenesis in the basal land plant Marchantia polymorpha: Using CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing and forward genetics to assess functional conservation and seek novel components
  Prof P Jarvis, Prof L Dolan
Applications accepted all year round
Chloroplasts are responsible for photosynthesis, and are the organelles that define plants [1]. They evolved as a result of an endosymbiotic relationship between a cyanobacterium and an algal progenitor, in a process that began over a billion years ago.
  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.
  Improving Agroforestry in Latin America with the Versatile Tree Genus Inga
  Dr K Dexter
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
See. https://www.geos.ed.ac.uk/e4-dtp/project/pdf/98. Summary. The student will contribute to a funded project using experimental and observational approaches to determine the best Inga species for agroforestry, while developing their own projects on specific species of Inga.
  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.
  Testing impacts of ant-plant protection mutualisms on plant community dynamics in Papua New Guinea
  Dr T Fayle, Prof V Novotny, Dr P Klimes
Application Deadline: 28 December 2018
A highly motivated postgraduate student is sought to join a project exploring the effects of ant inhabitation of trees on plant community dynamics.
  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.
  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.
  Functional Significance of Al hyper-accumulation in Tropical Forest Trees
  Dr D Burslem, Dr Y Arn
Applications accepted all year round
Numerous plant species take up and store high concentrations of Al from the soil system, despite the toxicity of Al3+ to plant metabolism.
