Centre for Doctoral Training PhDs in Plant Sciences

The School of Biological Sciences at the University of Aberdeen has a world-leading reputation for pure and applied research across the biological sciences, with a broad cross-cutting theme of understanding the fundamental biological consequences of global environmental change. Read more

Building a barrier to arsenic accumulation in rice

Applications are invited for a fully funded, 42 month PhD studentship commencing in October 2022 at the University of Aberdeen, as part of The newly established. Read more

MSc by Research: Genetic interactions and novel genes that regulate lignin biosynthesis and straw quality in barley

Lignin is a major component of plant cell walls, and has a significant influence on the digestibility and uses of plant biomass. The lignin biosynthesis pathway has been one of the most intensively studied plant metabolic pathways over the past two decades. Read more

MSc by Research: Jasmonate control of barley development

From the earliest farmers to modern plant breeders, humans have continually modified the body plan of cereals, sometimes drastically, to generate higher grain yields. Read more

MSc by Research: Regulation of Architecture in Barley

Plant architecture, or body plan, plays a key role in determining grain yield of crop plants. However, we have little understanding of the molecular genetic basis of architecture in the temperate cereals such as barley (Hordeum vulgare L.), especially in comparison to the warm weather crops such as rice (Oryza sativa).

Net Zero crops: Mitigating greenhouse gas emissions from linseed (PhD)

Agriculture is a major source of greenhouse gas emissions, largely driven by fertiliser applications. This includes the production of nitrous oxide, a greenhouse gas (GHG) approximately 300 times more powerful at driving climate warming than carbon dioxide over 100 years. Read more
