  Improving arsenic tolerance in rice
  Dr F J M Maathuis, Dr H V Isaacs
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Arsenic (As) is an extremely toxic metalloid, which occurs ubiquitously in nature but is particularly prevalent in South-East Asia.
  Genomics of Adaption to Climate Change in Rice
  Dr L Williams, Dr M Carine
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Feeding a growing population sustainably in the face of climate change requires us to resolve the genetic basis of crop tolerance to stress (especially temperature, precipitation and edaphic factors).
  Emissions of Greenhouse Gases from Extensive Agriculture in the Indio-Gangetic Plain
  Dr H Boesch, Dr H Sembhi
Application Deadline: 8 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Agriculture is the world’s second-largest emitter of damaging greenhouse gases (GHG) after the energy sector. The future growth of the global population will result in additional pressures on the agricultural sector to secure food production whilst aiming to reduce GHG emissions.
  Molecular mechanisms to reduce Arsenic in Rice
  Dr F J M Maathuis, Dr H V Isaacs
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Food security is under pressure all over the globe. Abiotic stress is one of the. largest threats to crop production and amongst these, crop contamination.
  Leucocyte trafficking in multiple sclerosis - a systems biology approach for personalised medicine
  Dr C Rice, Dr L Marucci
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are now open for a PhD studentship entitled ‘Leucocyte trafficking in multiple sclerosis - a systems biology approach for personalised medicine’ via the GW4 BioMed MRC Doctoral Training Partnership.
  Assessing and improving resilience of cereal production in South Asia to climate variability and change
  Dr B Parkes, Dr T Foster
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cereal production systems, in particular wheat and rice, constitute the main source of food security and incomes for millions of smallholder farmers across South Asia.
  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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Statistical genetics and genomics of complex traits
  Dr L Leach, Prof Z Luo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Plant and crop fertility: the evolution and impact of gene control networks
  Prof D Twell, Dr R Badge
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant fertility is vitally dependent upon sexual reproduction and the differentiation of male (sperm) and female (egg) gametes. Despite the importance of this process for future food security we have limited knowledge of the mechanisms involved in gamete development.
  PhD: Improving Photosynthesis
  Prof A Fleming
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
