  Using machine learning to identify the functional consequences of naturally occurring variants in the rice genome
  Dr A R Jones
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
For a rapidly growing global population, providing a long-term stable, source of nutritious food is a major unsolved global challenge.
  Engineering The Rice Leaf for Improved Photosynthesis
  Prof A Fleming
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  The importance of metal binding for the function of rice proteins that interact with pathogen effectors
  Prof C Dennison
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Global demand for food is rising and plant pathogens are one of a number of major threats to crop harvests. Plant pathogens produce effector proteins that remodel host cell processes for the benefit of the pathogen, resulting in disease.
  Emissions of Greenhouse Gases from Extensive Agriculture in the Indio-Gangetic Plain
  Dr H Boesch, Dr H Sembhi
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
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.
  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.
  Molecular mechanisms to reduce Arsenic in Rice
  Dr F J M Maathuis, Dr H V Isaacs
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
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 with.
  Eel Anguilla anguilla migration, barriers and loss of ecosystem services: the case of the River Parrett catchment, Somerset Levels.
  Prof S Rice, Dr P Wood, Dr A Pledger
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Loughborough University is a top-ten rated university in England for research intensity (REF2014). In choosing Loughborough for your research, you’ll work alongside academics who are leaders in their field.
  Newcastle-Liverpool-Durham Doctoral Training Partnership in Biosciences
The Newcastle-Liverpool-Durham DTP (http://www.nld-dtp.org.uk/) is a strategic Partnership in Biosciences doctoral training between three research-intensive universities in northern cities of great industrial heritage, Newcastle University, the University of Liverpool and Durham University.
  Engineering more water-use efficient crops: functional genomics of the circadian control of CO2 fixation associated with Crassulacean acid metabolism
  Dr J Hartwell
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
The world is getting hotter and drier due to climate change, and the human population is growing rapidly to the extent that it has been predicted that we will need to increase crop yields by 50 - 70 % by 2050 in order to feed the predicted 9 - 10 billion people.
