  Carbon sequestration potential of apple rootstocks: the role of root recalcitrance, rhizodeposition, and the rhizosphere microbiome (Ref: CTP_FCR_2019_5)
  Dr F O'Brien, Prof M Tibbett, Prof M Lukac
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
The Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC ) have awarded a Collaborative Training Partnership (CTP) grant to a consortium led by Berry Gardens Growers Ltd and NIAB EMR.
  Turning the tide on saline driven soil degradation: can root iron plaques improve the tolerance of rice to salinity stress?
  Dr P Williams, Dr G Norton
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project will be supervised by Dr Paul Williams of Queen’s University School of Biological Sciences and by Dr Gareth Norton of the University of Aberdeen’s School of Biological Sciences.
  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.
  An experimental and macroecological investigation of precipitation effects on Arctic plant root traits
  Dr F Schrodt
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
The Arctic tundra is particularly exposed to climate change, with warming of up to 5°C measured during the 20th century, and substantial increases in precipitation predicted for the 21st century.
  Developing and testing models of human tooth shape using dental radiographs
  Prof H Liversidge, Prof F Wong
Applications accepted all year round
Background. Human teeth vary in shape. The dimensions and shape of teeth from dental radiographs has not been studied in detail. Knowledge of the variation in crown and root dimensions of the mature tooth helps to define abnormal teeth as well as abnormal tooth eruption.
  Tree-sewage symbiosis for healthy forests and people
  Prof P Davies, Dr D Hunt
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
The deterioration of surface and groundwater quality in peri-urban areas of many emerging economies such as India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Pakistan and Vietnam is a serious cause for concern.
  Ph.D. position: Brassinosteroid-dependent Systemic Signals in Plant Development
  Prof C Hardtke
Applications accepted all year round
A fully funded Ph.D. position is available (flexible starting date in 2018) in the lab of Prof. Christian Hardtke at the Department of Plant Molecular Biology, University of Lausanne, Switzerland.
  Hitting the sweet spot - phenotyping tissue integrity to reduce sugar losses during the harvest and storage of sugar beet (Beta vulgaris).
  Dr J Monaghan
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
PhD Studentship (42 months funding including a 6 months paid work placement). Background. Sugar beet is a major crop grown in temperate countries as a source of dietary sugar.
  How does nutritional status affect plant immunity? (Ref: CTP_FCR_2019_3)
  Dr R Harrison
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
The Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC ) have awarded a Collaborative Training Partnership (CTP) grant to a consortium led by Berry Gardens Growers Ltd and NIAB EMR.
  Developing novel bioactive restorative materials
  Dr J Camilleri, Dr M Milward, Prof PR Cooper
Applications accepted all year round
This work will focus on gingival recession and the use of smart dental material in order to mitigate it. Gingival recession is prevalent in the adult population with studies suggesting that approximately 50% of the population has one or more recession defects this increases to 88% in over 65 year olds.
