  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.
  Molecular Genetics of Durable Disease Resistance in Wheat
  Prof S Krattinger
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The identification of agriculturally important genes in wheat had long been limited by its large genome, which is five times larger than the human genome.
  Genome-based resources for Fixation-Restitution breeding in potato
  Dr D Milbourne, Dr H van Eck
Application Deadline: 4 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for a PhD candidate who is interested in helping to re-invent potato breeding using innovative biotechnology and genomics-based approaches.
  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.
  Transcriptional battles in plant-pathogen interactions: understanding and re-wiring gene regulatory networks to enhance disease resistance
  Prof K Denby, Prof I A Graham
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The severity of plant disease is determined by a battle between pathogen virulence and host plant immunity – understanding this relationship is key to developing sustainable methods of pathogen control.

  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.
  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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  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.
  Statistical genetics and genomics of complex traits
  Dr L Leach, Prof Z Luo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A highly motivated student is sought to train as a statistical geneticist working on the dissection of complex trait phenotypes in human, plant and animal populations into their underlying genetic components.
