  Photoreceptor regulation of plant development
  Dr S Casson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant growth and development is highly dependent on the light environment. Light provides energy to drive photosynthesis but light quality and quantity is also perceived by photoreceptors, which signal to regulate responses enabling plants to adapt to their environment.
  ONE Planet DTP - The potential of endophyte application to manage the crop microbiome for climate resilient and Anthropocene-alligned farming (OP20222)
  Prof N Boonham
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Endophytes within plant tissues can provide mutiple benefits to their hosts, including buffering against climate shocks (e.g. drought, heat stress) or pest and pathogen outbreaks.
  MSc by Research Programme: Greasing protein function – how is post-translational protein S-acylation regulated in plants?
  Dr P Hemsley
Application Deadline: 16 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This course allows you to work alongside our world renowned experts from the School of Life Sciences and gain a ’real research’ experience.
  Targeting biological control applications using automated sporesampling and disease forecasting (IAF2001)
  Prof N Boonham
Application Deadline: 14 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Use of conventional crop protection products is under increasing pressure following withdrawal of actives due to regulation and resistance.
  RNAi workflows for crop protection by silencing virulence genes of fungi and oomycetes with antisense oligonucleotides (ASOs): Chemical modifications and conjugation to nanoparticles for enhancing ASOs silencing potential and delivery
  Dr L Bindschedler
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Major losses in crop production are caused by fungi and oomycetes. Traditional disease control involves either fungicide applications or via breeding of new plant varieties introgressed with resistance genes, or insertion of these genes in transgenic plants.
  Priming of defence in an elevated CO2 world
  Dr E Luna-Diez, Dr S Hayward
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Anthropogenic activity has raised the atmospheric and this is predicted to rise further over the course of the 21st century. Whilst elevated CO2 (eCO2) may increase plant productivity, several publications have described changes in the defensive capacity of plants after exposure of eCO2.
  Genomic diversity and molecular basis of pathogenicity of novel oomycete pathogens
  Dr M Barkoulas, Prof M Fisher
Application Deadline: 12 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The oomycetes represent a diverse group of eukaryotic organisms that cause destructive disease in animals and plants. Plant infections are more widely known because they are associated with historical famines caused by shortage in the production of key food crops.
  SCENARIO - Sensors for real-time monitoring of drinking water quality and treatment processes
  Dr D Lapworth, Dr T Bond
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inactivation of pathogens with chlorine is an essential part of drinking water treatment. However, chlorine also generates harmful disinfection by-products from reactions with natural organic matter (NOM).
  Development of Botrytis fabae resistant faba beans
  Prof D O'Sullivan, Dr S Alves
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Europe faces a protein production challenge. Each year, it imports an average of 40 million tonnes (bean equivalent) of soya bean and soya meal to meet its needs for supplementary protein in feed, but it produces only 8 million tonnes of grain legume seeds.
  Nanoparticle conjugates for agricultural disease detection and diagnosis
  Dr L Wong, Prof J Micklefield
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Infectious diseases in plant crops present a significant socioeconomic burden globally, as they compromise the safety and reliability of food supply, as well as other agricultural products.
