  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.
  Dissecting quantitative variation in the plant circadian clock
  Prof S J Davis, Dr J Pitchford
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The seasonal timing of growth is critical for plant performance under both ecological and agricultural settings. The circadian clock holds a key place in such seasonal adaptation as crop adaptations to agriclimatic zones is realised.
  Exploiting pathogenomics and resistance for control of Fusarium wilt of lettuce
  Dr John Clarkson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
with industrial collaborator Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB). Fusarium wilt disease of lettuce is caused by the soilborne fungus Fusarium oxysporumf.sp.
  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.
  China Scholarship Council PhD Programme: Molecular characterisation of plant disease resistance genes through novel Next-Generation Sequencing applications
  Dr I Hein
Application Deadline: 14 January 2019
This PhD project will provide comprehensive training for the successful candidate in potato genetics (diploid and tetraploid) as well as plant-pathogen genomics/co-evolution.
  Genetic Control of Plant and Crop Fertility: Understanding the Impact of Key Gene Networks on Pollen and Gamete Fitness
  Research Group: Behavioural & Developmental Genetics
  Prof D Twell, Dr R Badge
Applications accepted all year round
Plant fertility and food security depend upon the vital role of pollen grains, which deliver the male gametes required for fertilisation and seed production.
  *NERC E4* Ecological genomics of the British Flora
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr A Twyford, Prof P Hollingsworth
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
Interested individuals must follow the "how to apply" link on the Geosciences E4 Doctoral Training Partnership web page. http://www.ed.ac.uk/e4-dtp/how-to-apply.
  Resolving the limitations on plant growth and biomass
  Dr T.A. Bennett, Dr S Batterman
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
"What limits primary productivity in plants remains a major question relevant across scales and biological systems. Agronomists and farmers have long sought the factors that support efficient accumulation of biomass in order to maximize crop production.
  Genetics and molecular basis of insect resistance in forest trees
  Prof J Mackay
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Background. Insect pests pose a rapidly growing threat to the sustainability of forest systems as a result of climate change and globalisation of commerce.
