  Primed for parasitism: pathogenic nematodes tailor their response to host plant exudates.
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Prof P E Urwin, Dr K. Field
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Background. Plant-parasitic nematodes are a major threat to global food security, causing billions of dollars of crop losses to agriculture throughout the world.
  More crop per drop: re-engineering root system architecture for improved water uptake
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr S Kepinski, Prof W Harwood
Application Deadline: 20 December 2018
The rising world population and increasingly conspicuous effects of climate change mean that increases in food production of ~60% must be achieved through a sustainable intensification of agriculture over the next two-three decades [1].
  Dissecting the role of root exudates in density-dependent growth responses in plants
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr T.A. Bennett, Prof J P Knox
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Plants have a remarkable ability to perceive both their own roots and those of neighbouring plants, and to adapt their root growth accordingly.
  Spatio-temporal dynamics of resource exchange between plants and competing root symbionts
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr K. Field, Prof P E Urwin, Prof J Schneider
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The vast majority of plant roots form mutualistic symbioses with arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) whereby AMF supply their host plant with otherwise-inaccessible soil nutrients in return for carbon fixed through photosynthesis.
  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.
  Give-and-take: how do plants regulate resource exchange with mycorrhizas and parasitic nematodes?
  Research Group: Centre for Plant Sciences
  Dr K. Field, Prof P E Urwin
Application Deadline: 20 December 2018
The vast majority of plant roots form mutualistic symbioses with arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) whereby AMF supply their host plant with otherwise-inaccessible soil nutrients in return for carbon fixed through photosynthesis.
  The hydraulic control of the rhizosphere on rainfall-induced fast-moving shallow landslides
  Prof A Tarantino
Application Deadline: 1 January 2019
Rainfall is a major triggering factor of shallow landslides. When heavy and/or prolonged rainfall events occur, water infiltrates into the slope causing pore-water pressures build-up.
