  Genetic Analysis of Complex Traits in Autotetraploid Crops including Potato
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr L Leach, Prof Z Luo
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Autopolyploidy is a characteristic shared by many important crops including potato, coffee, leek, sugarcane, alfalfa and some economically important aquaculture animals, including Atlantic salmon and trout.
  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.
  An investigation of soil bacteriophages associated with positive and poor crop outcome
  Prof M Clokie
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
There is an increasing awareness that the microbial composition of soil can impact the productivity of crop plants. Bacteria have key roles in increasing the ability of plants to take up nutrients and to combat pathogenic bacteria.
  A Few Bad Potatoes: Modelling Economic Aspects of Disease Control in Seed Potatoes
  Prof I Toth, Prof A Kleczkowski, Dr S Humphris
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Background. Production and export of seed potatoes is of immense value to the UK economy, yet threatened by multiple disease threats.
  Development of a spectroscopic assay for Potato Virus Y (PVY)
  Prof J Tucker, Prof T R Dafforn
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Potato virus Y (PVY) is a major and prevalent potato virus, causing necrosis (dead spots in leaves and tubers) that leads to a significant reduction in crop yield.
  China Scholarship Council PhD Programme: Molecular characterisation of plant disease resistance genes through novel Next-Generation Sequencing applications
  Dr I Hein
Application Deadline: 14 January 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.
  From Metabolic Markers to Mechanism of Growth Suppression
  Prof A Fleming, Dr H Walker
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Some organisms undergo a phase of suspended growth (dormancy), with re-activation of. metabolism required to generate material, energy and reducing power for the synthesis of.
