  Seed dormancy and germination: understanding the molecular basis to improve seed quality and seedling performance of horticultural and agricultural crops
  Prof G Leubner
Applications accepted all year round
Plant seeds and fruits are at the beginning and the end of most important food supply chains that are central to human existence (food security).
  Investigating secondary nucleation at the microscale using optical tweezing
  Dr M Haw, Prof J Sefcik
Applications accepted all year round
In secondary nucleation, already formed ‘seed’ primary crystal nuclei generate new secondary nuclei in response to a varied range of stimuli such as mechanical disturbance, shear stress from flow and the presence of impurities.
  Funded Geography PhD opportunities
For more than 125 years, The University of Manchester has produced globally excellent geographical research. When you undertake your PhD with us you'll be integrated into our research ethos and practices, which aim to produce both theoretically significant and policy-relevant contributions to geographical knowledge.
  An investigation of soil bacteriophages associated with positive and poor crop outcome
  Prof M Clokie
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
There is an increasing awareness that the microbial composition of soil can impact the productivity of crop plants. Bacteria have key roles in increasing the ability of plants to take up nutrients and to combat pathogenic bacteria.
  Funded Architecture PhD opportunities
Our research looks beyond technical design to the complex processes and practices that run through the development, adaptation and use of built environments.
  Funded Education PhD opportunities
The Manchester Institute of Education facilitates research at the cutting edge of theory and practice. We have a commitment to addressing social justice, and to enabling evidence informed educational change through both our scholarly activities and our collaborative partnerships with professionals.
  Accessing natural and induced variation to improve the protein quality of faba bean
  Prof D O'Sullivan, Dr P Tosi
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
This PhD project is about uncovering the molecular genetic basis for faba bean protein content and protein quality, specifically the proportions of essential amino acids in the seed protein.
  Estimating the dispersal capacity of Scottish blue mussel: From hydrodynamic modelling to genetic population structures
  Dr S Carboni
Application Deadline: 28 March 2019
This PhD project will investigate fundamental questions regarding the ecology, conservation and commercial production of blue mussel (Mytilus spp).
  EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Robotics and Autonomous Systems
Heriot-Watt University and the University of Edinburgh are jointly offering an exciting opportunity to study a PhD through an innovative 4-year PhD training programme, drawing on our extensive experience with postgraduate teaching and research supervision in the area of Robotics and Autonomous Systems.
