  From start to finish: roles for the N-end rule pathway of protein degradation in plant development and stress-response
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr D Gibbs
Applications accepted all year round
In order to effectively co-ordinate their growth and development, plants need to be able to respond to changes in their environment, whether it is adapting to the seasons or coping with stresses.
  PhD in Geographical & Earth Sciences: How life and steel slag interact – physical, chemical and biological breakdown of slag and the implications for remediation
  Dr J MacDonald
Applications accepted all year round
Co-supervised by Professor Alistair Jump, University of Stirling. Worldwide, it is estimated that steelmaking produces up to 250 million tonnes of waste slag per year.
  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.
  PhD in Geographical & Earth Sciences: Anthropogenic geodiversity – how can Scotland’s industrial waste legacy contribute to geodiversity and biodiversity?
  Dr J MacDonald
Applications accepted all year round
Co-supervised by Professor Alistair Jump, University of Stirling. As recognised in Scotland’s Geodiversity Charter, geodiversity underpins biodiversity and faces pressures from human influence.
  Elucidating infection at the plant-microbe interphase on a cellular, molecular and structural level to improve crop resistance and support food security
  Dr C Voigt
Applications accepted all year round
Achieving food security is one of the most important global challenges. Crop production and yield has been increasingly threatened by plant pathogens in a rapidly changing environment.
  PhD in agricultural biology - forecasting management and economics of climate change
  Prof R Freckleton
Applications accepted all year round
The world faces a major challenge to ensure the security of food supplies in the face of threats resulting from climate change, growing population and the development of resistance to pesticides.

Get your graduate degree at a top 100 university. The Graduate School of Science and Technology at Aarhus University is looking for a number of bright, enthusiastic and ambitious candidates who are interested in pursuing a PhD education.
  Fluid dynamics in plants: its importance for transport and signalling (BLYTHMU19SF)
  Dr M Blyth
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
Fluid motion is vital to the function of healthy plants. For example, transpiration causes water to be drawn upwards from root to leaf through the conducting elements of the xylem, and pressure-driven flow carries the products of photosynthesis through the phloem.
  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.
  Race structure and pathogenicity mechanisms in Pseudomonas syringae pv. syringae, the causal agent of brown spot of Phaseolus vulgaris (common bean)
  Prof G Preston
Applications accepted all year round
BACKGROUND. Beans provide one of the most important staple sources of dietary protein in many parts of Africa and worldwide, and are an important part of the horticultural export market.
