  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.
  Genetic basis of extracellular potato blight recognition in wild Solanum sp.
  Prof R Van der Hoorn
Applications accepted all year round
Potato late blight has caused the devastating Irish potato famine in the 1840s and is still an important pathogen in agriculture today.
  Synthetic Resistance to Potato Blight
  Prof R Van der Hoorn
Applications accepted all year round
The oomycete potato pathogen Phytophthora infestans has caused devastation during the Irish Potato Famine in the 1840s. P. infestans still causes major problems in the potato industry, and is mostly controlled using agrochemicals.
  China Scholarship Council PhD Programme: Molecular characterisation of plant disease resistance genes through novel Next-Generation Sequencing applications
  Dr I Hein
Application Deadline: 11 February 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.
  Statistical genetics and genomics of complex traits
  Dr L Leach, Prof Z Luo
Applications accepted all year round
A highly motivated student is sought to train as a statistical geneticist working on the dissection of complex trait phenotypes in human, plant and animal populations into their underlying genetic components.
  Methods for quantitative genetic analyses in autotetraploids
  Prof Z Luo
Applications accepted all year round
Methods for quantitative genetic analysis have been well established in almost all important diploid plants and animal including humans, and have served as essential tools for dissecting the genetic architectures underlying agronomically, evolutionarily and medically interesting quantitative and complex traits.
  Using cold adapted photobionts to improve photosynthesis in economically important organisms
  Dr M Kapralov, Dr J Telling
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Interested in saving the planet and solving global food security while learning synthetic and organismal biology and biochemistry?.
  Singularities of Mean Curvature Flow and Related Topics
  Research Group: Geometry and Analysis
  Dr R Buzano, Dr H Nguyen
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The School of Mathematical Sciences of Queen Mary University of London invite applications for a PhD project commencing in September 2019.
  Development of CRISPR-Cas and LAMP diagnostics to inform plant disease management
  Dr J Tovar, Dr L Bindschedler
Application Deadline: 15 February 2019
Fungal infections are a major threat to food security worldwide. In the UK alone, Septoria wheat leaf blotch – a fungal disease caused by Zymoseptoria tritici – and oilseed rape phoma leafspot and stem canker, diseases caused by the fungi Leptosphaeria maculans and L.
  Polyploidy-related structural and functional changes in the Arabidopsis genome.
  Dr L Leach
Applications accepted all year round
My research interests lie in the dissection of complex trait phenotypes in human, plant and animal populations into their underlying genetic components.
