  Testing impacts of ant-plant protection mutualisms on plant community dynamics in Papua New Guinea
  Dr T Fayle, Prof V Novotny, Dr P Klimes
Application Deadline: 28 December 2018
A highly motivated postgraduate student is sought to join a project exploring the effects of ant inhabitation of trees on plant community dynamics.
  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.
  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
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.
  Does biodiversity restoration enhance the capacity of ecosystem functions to buffer climate extremes?
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Prof R Bardgett, Prof D Johnson, Dr M Semchenko
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
The role of species diversity as a driver of ecosystem stability - or the ability of an ecosystem to maintain a relatively stable state in the face of environmental fluctuations - has a long history in ecology.
  Post-translational regulation of transcription dynamics in plant immunity
  Research Group: Institute of Molecular Plant Sciences
  Dr S Spoel, Dr G van Ooijen
Application Deadline: 13 December 2018
Precise regulation of gene transcription is vital for all organisms. In eukaryotes, dynamic changes in gene transcription orchestrate cell development and cellular responses to the ever changing environment.
  Exploiting induced resistance for trait enhancement in hydroponically-grown crops
  Dr E Luna-Diez
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Due to their increasing unsuitability and the fact that they are increasingly looked down upon socially, the use of pesticides in agricultural fields has been highly legislated.
  Bio-physical interactions and adaptive coastal protection of dynamic vegetation patches
  Research Group: Institute for Infrastructure & Environment
  Prof Q Zou, Dr T Balke
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Coastal vegetations are vital natural defences against severe storms, flooding and coastal erosion. They increase coastal resilience and offer ecosystem services such as carbon storage, biohabitat and water-quality.
  Synthetic Resistance to Potato Blight
  Prof R Van der Hoorn
Applications accepted all year round
The oomycete potato pathogen Phytophthora infestans has caused devastation during the Irish Potato Famine in the 1840s. P. infestans still causes major problems in the potato industry, and is mostly controlled using agrochemicals.
  PhD in agricultural biology - forecasting management and economics of climate change
  Prof R Freckleton
Applications accepted all year round
The world faces a major challenge to ensure the security of food supplies in the face of threats resulting from climate change, growing population and the development of resistance to pesticides.
  Sustainable approaches to crop protection: silicon supplementation and its effects on symbiont-mediated multitrophic interactions
  Dr J Ferrari, Prof S Hartley
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Outbreaks of insect pests damage crops and are predicted to increase under climate change. Controlling them with synthetic pesticides is environmentally damaging and sustainable alternatives are urgently needed.
