  Epigenetic changes in Plant Acclimation.
  Prof T Lawson, Dr R Zabet
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Scientific background. Plants, including all our crop plants, live in a dynamic environment with external conditions varying over the day and season and these signals influence how a plant grows and how productive it is.
  Plant adaptations to wetland conditions as regulators of methane oxidation and emissions from tropical wetlands
  Dr S Sjögersten
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Natural wetlands are the greatest emitters of atmospheric methane. Plants are important controls of this as they can both stimulate high methane production and suppress emissions by releasing oxygen into the ground supporting bacterially mediated oxidation of methane drastically cutting emissions.
  China Scholarship Council PhD Programme: How does protein S-acylation regulate plant growth and development?
  Dr P Hemsley
Application Deadline: 11 February 2019
S-acylation is an emerging lipid based post-translational modification affecting up to 40% membrane proteins. We have found that S-acylation in plants is a dynamic process allowing for regulation of protein function.
  PhD Student (f/m/d) in the field of Chromosome Biology
  Ms H Böhme
Application Deadline: 16 February 2019
The research group Chromosome structure and function is interested in the process of chromosome segregation.
  Predicting Tuber Dry Matter concentration in potato
  Dr D Firman, Dr M Stalham, Prof H Griffiths
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
Project Outline. The dry matter concentration of potato tubers is an important quality attribute, particularly for the production of crisps and french fries but also for fresh produce.
  Why does C4 photosynthesis rarely evolve in trees?
  Dr M Lundgren
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
C4 photosynthesis is an ultra-efficient mode plant physiology that is used by our most productive food and bioenergy crops, including maize, sugarcane, and miscanthus.
  Developing novel geophysical tools to investigate urban tree-water processes
  Dr R Stirling
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project is part of the ONE Planet DTP. Find out more here. https://research.ncl.ac.uk/one-planet/. This PhD aims to improve our understanding of how street trees influence soil-water capacity in the built environment through the use of geophysical tomography.
  Identifying tipping points regulating greenhouse gas emission from soils at two forest free air co2 enrichment experiments
  Dr S Ullah, Dr S Yamulki, Prof E Pendall
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
Globally, natural ecosystems including forests are responsible for ~60% of the total nitrous oxide (N2O) gas emitted from soils, and consume ~25% of the total atmospheric methane (CH4).
  Engineering The Rice Leaf for Improved Photosynthesis
  Prof A Fleming
Applications accepted all year round
Improving photosynthetic efficiency has been identified as one of the few remaining traits for exploitation if we are to achieve the significant increases in crop yield required to feed the projected 9 billion world population by 2050.
  Hitting the sweet spot - phenotyping tissue integrity to reduce sugar losses during the harvest and storage of sugar beet (Beta vulgaris).
  Dr J Monaghan
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
PhD Studentship (42 months funding including a 6 months paid work placement). Background. Sugar beet is a major crop grown in temperate countries as a source of dietary sugar.
