  Biological implications of genetics variation in rice for mycorrhizal colonisation.
  Prof A Price
Applications accepted all year round
We have demonstrated repeatable and substantial differences in the colonisation of rice cultivars by the model arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungus Rizophagus irregularis and mapped quantitative trait loci for the variation.
  Physiological and molecular characterisation of altered root hydraulic properties in rice due to allelic variation or genetic manipulation of plasma membrane intrinsic proteins (PIPs, a class of aquaporins)
  Prof A Price
Applications accepted all year round
A cluster of three PIPs on chromosome 7 of rice are all candidate genes for a drought avoidance locus. These genes are highly expressed in roots and thought to have a major role in root hydraulic conductance.
  PhD in Computer vision: 2D colour images of a single species (rice) undergoing a single stress
  Prof S Metcalfe
Applications accepted all year round
Data generated from trait analysis will be used to develop convolutional neural net architectures capable of analysing image sequences of roots or shoots to extract temporal traits associated with environmental stress.
  PhD: Characterisation of whole plant abiotic stress resilience traits
  Dr R Bhosale
Applications accepted all year round
The PhD student will work as part of a team conducting multi-trait rice phenotyping to establish the genomics basis of stress resilience using GWAS approaches.
  Granular physics and accretion discs
  Dr M Mazza
Application Deadline: 1 June 2019
Granular materials are invaluable to industry and are ubiquitous in our daily lives. from dry rice and spices to raw materials. A freely cooling granular gas is an ensemble of particles undergoing dissipative collisions and free of any external field.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  Creating the next generation LPMOs for biofuel production – to start October 2019 - for an MSc by Dissertation (MSD)
  Dr J Worrall, Dr M Hough
Application Deadline: 24 April 2019
Background. Deconstructing plant and non-plant (e.g. fungal) biomass to value added products will become a major route to obtain sustainable materials in many industrial processes like food, feed manufacturing, non-food and renewable bioenergy.
  BBSCR ICase project: What makes a good female? Trait characterization of female fertility traits for hybrid development in wheat
  Prof Z A Wilson, Dr J Fernandez
Application Deadline: 4 April 2019
Successful reproduction is critical to seed set and crop yields. Self-fertilisation typically occurs in cereals, however hybrids, the products of cross-fertilisation, tend to more resilient and have up to 20% increased yield potential compared to inbred equivalents.
