  Plant responses to stress, metabolites for health and fuel from cell walls.
  Prof A Devoto
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Utilising sunlight to enhance crop survivial at freezing temperatures - Horizon 2020
  Prof K Franklin, Prof A M Hetherington
Application Deadline: 29 March 2019
This fully funded 4-year PhD studentship is part of a multi-disciplinary €4.9M H2020 grant which will enable a consortium of researchers from across Europe to embark on a project named ‘Boostcrop’.
  GOA PhD position for a Molecular plant physiologist
  Prof I NIJS, Prof H Asard
Applications accepted all year round
The Department of Biology of the University of Antwerp is seeking to fill 1 full-time (100%) PhD position within in a large scale multidisciplinary project, bringing together plant ecology, plant physiology, interaction of plants with soil microorganisms, transcriptome analysis, metabolomics and bio-informatics.
  Plant and Soil Microbiome Interactions
  Prof B Singh
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
The Hawkesbury Institute for the Environment (HIE) is a research institute within Western Sydney University. HIE has rapidly become a research leader in environmental and ecological research, with a strong reputation for delivering research outcomes of the highest quality.
  Phytochrome: from photochemistry to signal
  Prof J Hughes
Application Deadline: 23 April 2019
A PhD position at the Institute for Plant Physiology of the Justus Liebig University is available immediately. The position (E13 65%) is funded for three years as part of the project "Phytochrome from photochemistry to signalling" (DFG Hu702/12) in collaboration with Chen Song in Jörg Matysik’s lab in Leipzig.
  Controlling plant growth in canopy shade - BBSRC Southwest Biosciences DTP
  Prof K Franklin, Dr A Dodd
Application Deadline: 8 April 2019
Plants can detect the presence of competing vegetation using photoreceptors and initiate rapid stem elongation to overtop competitors.
  Urban Forest: testing tree performance to future hotter and drier conditions
  Dr P Rymer, Prof S Power, Prof M Tjoelker
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
The Hawkesbury Institute for the Environment (HIE) is a research institute within Western Sydney University. HIE has rapidly become a research leader in environmental and ecological research, with a strong reputation for delivering research outcomes of the highest quality.
  Effects of climate changes and marine heatwaves on rocky shore intertidal communities
  Dr M Thomsen
Applications accepted all year round
We seek a PhD candidate to join a 3-year research program based at the University of Canterbury (UC) to investigate the effects of climate changes and marine heatwaves on rocky intertidal communities.
  The role of cyclic nucleotides in stomatal responses to environmental signals - BBSRC Southwest Biosciences DTP
  Prof A M Hetherington, Prof K Franklin
Application Deadline: 8 April 2019
Experiments conducted over the last 40 years suggest a role for cyclic nucleotides (CNs) in plant cell signalling. However, the precise nature of the plant signalling system responsible for modulating CN levels and responding to changes in CN concentration is not clear.
  Assessing the ecological vulnerability of natural defences and risks to agricultural land following seawater flooding
  Prof R Thompson, Dr M Hanley
Application Deadline: 26 March 2019
Erosion and flooding represent significant threats to our coastlines. In recent years, much progress has been made in understanding the role of natural habitats in providing coastal protection both in isolation and, in combination with, engineered sea defence structures.
