  Epigenetic changes in Plant Acclimation.
  Prof T Lawson, Dr R Zabet
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Scientific background. Plants, including all our crop plants, live in a dynamic environment with external conditions varying over the day and season and these signals influence how a plant grows and how productive it is.
  How will air pollution and climate change combine to affect future food supply?
  Dr L Emberson
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
The record high temperatures and extended droughts experienced across much of the northern hemisphere during the summer of 2018 serve as a stark reminder of the severe impacts climate change will cause arable agriculture.
  Plant adaptations to wetland conditions as regulators of methane oxidation and emissions from tropical wetlands
  Dr S Sjögersten
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Natural wetlands are the greatest emitters of atmospheric methane. Plants are important controls of this as they can both stimulate high methane production and suppress emissions by releasing oxygen into the ground supporting bacterially mediated oxidation of methane drastically cutting emissions.
  China Scholarship Council PhD Programme: How does protein S-acylation regulate plant growth and development?
  Dr P Hemsley
Application Deadline: 14 January 2019
S-acylation is an emerging lipid based post-translational modification affecting up to 40% membrane proteins. We have found that S-acylation in plants is a dynamic process allowing for regulation of protein function.
  Predicting Tuber Dry Matter concentration in potato
  Dr D Firman, Dr M Stalham, Prof H Griffiths
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
Project Outline. The dry matter concentration of potato tubers is an important quality attribute, particularly for the production of crisps and french fries but also for fresh produce.
  Apoplastic signalling in the interaction between plant-parasitic nematodes and their host plants
  Research Group: Centre for Plant Sciences
  Prof P E Urwin
Application Deadline: 20 December 2018
Plant-parasitic nematodes are economically important crop pathogens that cause billions of dollars of crop losses to agriculture throughout the world.
  Why does C4 photosynthesis rarely evolve in trees?
  Dr M Lundgren
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
C4 photosynthesis is an ultra-efficient mode plant physiology that is used by our most productive food and bioenergy crops, including maize, sugarcane, and miscanthus.
  Increasing fitness potential of plants through chromatin landscape analysis during stress responses
  Prof A Devoto, Dr C Turnbull
Application Deadline: 15 January 2019
Stress responses under water scarcity are induced to enable survival and simultaneously shoot growth is reduced to limit water loss.
  Molecular mechanisms regulating wheat grain nutrient content and yield.
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr P Borrill
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Wheat is one of the world’s most important crops providing over 20 % of calories eaten by humankind.
  The control of wheat grain protein content
  Dr P Borrill
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Production of staple crops such as wheat must increase by 50 % to meet the food requirements of the global population which is projected to exceed 9 billion people by 2050.
