  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.
  How does rising atmospheric CO2 change the productivity of crops and trees?
  Prof C P Osborne
Applications accepted all year round
Professor Colin Osborne, Department of Animal and Plant Sciences, University of Sheffield, Sheffield, UK. New research in the lab investigates how plant growth is controlled by the supply of carbon from photosynthesis (source strength) verses the demand for carbon in growing tissues (sink strength).
  PhD in Ecology and Environment: how ecosystems, and the species they contain, respond to environmental change and how to reduce and mitigate adverse impacts
  Dr D Childs
Applications accepted all year round
Environmental change threatens biodiversity, altering ecosystem processes and provision of ecosystem services. These environmental change pressures are accelerating due to growing human populations and accompanying climate change, land use, pollution and invasive species.
  PhD in Evolution and Behaviour: exploring the connection between how organisms have evolved and how they behave
  Dr D Childs
Applications accepted all year round
The connection between how organisms have evolved and how they behave is a fundamental principle of biology. It can show us why organisms are the way they are, and answer deep questions about the diversity of life on earth.
  Plant genetics and molecular biology - dissecting the role of receptor-like kinases
  Dr L Smith
Applications accepted all year round
My group is interested in understanding aspects of basic plant biology, primarily through the application of molecular biology and genetics.
  Development of Single-Cell Ionomics in Plants
  Prof D Salt, Dr P Flis
Applications accepted all year round
We are looking to recruit a PhD student who will work on the development of single-cell ionomics in plants. This is a new approach and will allow the fusion of cell biology and the study of the ionome.
  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.
  Studying chloroplast biogenesis in the basal land plant Marchantia polymorpha: Using CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing and forward genetics to assess functional conservation and seek novel components
  Prof P Jarvis, Prof L Dolan
Applications accepted all year round
Chloroplasts are responsible for photosynthesis, and are the organelles that define plants [1]. They evolved as a result of an endosymbiotic relationship between a cyanobacterium and an algal progenitor, in a process that began over a billion years ago.
  The interactive effects of climate change and plant species invasion on plant and microbial trait diversity
  Dr J Deslippe
Applications accepted all year round
This PhD project addresses the interactive effects of climate change and plant species invasion on plant and microbial trait diversity and ecosystem processes along elevational gradients in Tongariro National Park, New Zealand, with a particular emphasis on mycorrhizas and plant root traits.
