  PhD Position in Plant Genetics - Characterisation of transcription factor complexes that control flower development
  Dr F Wellmer
Application Deadline: 15 April 2019
Applications are invited for a Ph.D. studentship in the Plant Developmental Genetics laboratory led by Dr. Frank Wellmer based in the Department of Genetics at Trinity College Dublin, the University of Dublin (http://www.tcd.ie/Genetics/wellmer-2/).
  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.
  Molecular Genetics of Durable Disease Resistance in Wheat
  Prof S Krattinger
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  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.
  Determining the effects of environment on grain protein and processing quality of wheat
  Prof P Shewry
Application Deadline: 23 April 2019
A PhD studentship is available to explore the effects of environmental factors on the protein content and composition of wheat grain, and the impact of this on processing quality.
  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.
  Statistical genetics and genomics of complex traits
  Dr L Leach, Prof Z Luo
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Mechanisms controlling the biogenesis and functions of chloroplasts in plants: protein transport and the ubiquitin-proteasome system
  Prof P Jarvis
Applications accepted all year round
Our research is focused on the biogenesis of chloroplasts and other plastids in plants, particularly in relation to the import of nucleus-encoded proteins and the role of the ubiquitin-proteasome system.
  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
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.
