  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.
  Nutritious crops: genomic approaches to improving the nutritional and commercial value of oilseed rape
  Prof Ian Bancroft, Dr A Harper
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oilseed rape is the third largest source of vegetable oil in the world. It is also a fascinating species in which to undertake genomic studies due to its polyploid ancestry.
  Impacts of Climate Change on Ecosystems
  Dr G Phoenix
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change is one of the greatest threats to biodiversity and ecosystem functioning.
  PhD in Plant Environmental Physiology
  Prof C P Osborne
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor – Professor Colin Osborne, Department of Animal and Plant Sciences, University of Sheffield, Sheffield, UK. We invite applications for a PhD in the area of plant environmental physiology.
  Characterising the cyanobacterial cytoskeleton (LEASMITHU20DTP)
  Dr D Lea-Smith, Dr G Kelemen
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cyanobacteria (photosynthetic bacteria) are amongst the most abundant organisms on the planet, accounting for approximately a quarter of carbon fixation.
  PhD: Improving Photosynthesis
  Prof A Fleming
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Improving photosynthetic efficiency has been identified as one of the few remaining traits for exploitation if we are to achieve the significant increases in crop yield required to feed the projected 9 billion world population by 2050.
  Herbivore and mycorrhizal mediation of carbon cycling in heather moorlands
  Dr S M Sait, Prof K. Field, Prof P Chapman
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The multiple drivers of environmental change, such as climate change and pollution, have led to widespread negative impacts on ecosystem functioning and services that are critical for human well-being.
  Transcription factors mediating light input to the Arabidopsis circadian clock
  Dr P Devlin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The circadian clock is tightly tied to the light environment. Transcriptional feedback loops are able to generate a self-sustaining rhythm of approximately 24 hours which impinges on almost every aspect of physiology in higher organisms.
  Comparative analysis of carbon assimilation pathways in key species of marine phytoplankton
  Dr T Tonon, Dr L Mackinder
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Seas and oceans cover more than 70% of our planet, contribute to half of the primary production on Earth, and are responsible for cycling half of the carbon fixed by living organisms.
  The evolution of symbiosis - testing the evolutionary theory of ecological conditions driving the emergence of symbioses
  Prof M Brockhurst
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Symbiosis allows organisms to gain novel functions and exploit new ecological niches through the merger of once independent species.
