  Developing programmable DNA-guided endonucleases for genome engineering
  Prof M Mahfouz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacterial and archaeal species are rich with proteins used for DNA processing or host defense. We aim to engineer some of these proteins and test their ability to generate double strand breaks in a programmed and site-specific fashion.
  Ph.D. position in Plant Vascular Development
  Prof C Hardtke
Application Deadline: 30 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

A fully funded Ph.D. position is available (flexible starting date, 04/2020 or after). in the lab of Prof. Christian Hardtke at the Department of Plant Molecular Biology,.
  Investigation of a Novel Regulator of Plant Yield and Fitness in Plants
  Dr P Gallois, Dr G Johnson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Autophagy is an incredibly important and highly conserved process across eukaryotes and involves the regulated destruction of unnecessary or damaged components within the cell.
  Mining Meadows: Exploring the metabolic diversity of UK plants (PATRONE20DTP2)
  Dr N Patron
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants synthesize a multitude of specialised metabolites, many of which they use to provide protection against pests and pathogens, as attractants for beneficial insects, or to model their microbiomes.
  Plant responses to stress, metabolites for health and fuel from cell walls.
  Prof A Devoto
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Projects are available in the following areas. Stress responses in crops and sustainable biomass production and processing. The project aims at elucidating several aspects of the control of plant defences and to identify environmentally friendly forms of plant protectants, leading to enhanced crop yields.
  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.
  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.
  Understanding the link between metabolism and behaviour in plant growth-promoting bacteria (MALONEJ20DTP)
  Dr J Malone
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will address a fundamental but poorly understood topic in the field of plant-microbe interaction.
  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.
