  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.
  Is the water use efficiency of land plants changing?
  Prof E Gloor, Dr R Brienen
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The globe’s vegetation is closely intertwined with the global carbon and hydrological cycles, and changes in plant functioning can thus have substantial consequences for climate.
  Understanding the ecology and evolution of defence-pollination conflicts in plants
  Dr S Campbell, Prof M T Siva-jothy
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Understanding how species adapt to different environments requires consideration of how they respond to multiple agents of natural selection.
  Understanding signalling networks underpinning key developmental processes during plant evolution
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr J C Coates
Applications accepted all year round
Plants first appeared on land almost half a billion years ago. All land plants likely evolved from a single aquatic green algal ancestor.
  Fundamental requirements for branching in plants
  Dr J Harrison
Applications accepted all year round
Branching is a key determinant of crop yields because it affects the positioning of organs around stems, and hence light interception and productivity.
  Why do we eat wheat? Co-evolution of people and plants in the Fertile Crescent
  Prof C P Osborne, Prof G Jones, Prof M Rees
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Scientific importance. 60% of human calories come from wheat, rice and maize. These crops were domesticated 10,000 years ago during the Neolithic, and we have subsequently adopted very few new food plants.
  Ecological and heritage importance of parkland estates
  Dr J Peacock, Prof P Chapman
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Large stately homes and their accompanying estates provide a key heritage resource with a unique flora, fauna and soil function. Such estates contain both native and wild flora in addition to cultivated horticultural species.
  How do plants roll dice? Genetic features underlying variability in plant development
  Dr I Johnston, Dr G Bassel
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Plants feed the world, but a fundamental tension exists between the past evolutionary priorities of plants and our current priorities for using them in agricultural settings.
  Ecological Function of a Water-sensing Molecular Fossil
  Research Group: Institute of Life and Earth Sciences
  Dr P C Morris, Dr J Thompson, Dr R Alexander
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Abiotic stress tolerance in plants is a critical attribute and a key objective for plant breeders. The world is experiencing unprecedented increases in average global temperatures and extreme weather events leading to intermittent periods of drought and waterlogging (water stress).
  Dissecting the role of root exudates in density-dependent growth responses in plants
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr T.A. Bennett, Prof J P Knox
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Plants have a remarkable ability to perceive both their own roots and those of neighbouring plants, and to adapt their root growth accordingly.
