  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).
  A Few Bad Potatoes: Modelling Economic Aspects of Disease Control in Seed Potatoes
  Prof I Toth, Prof A Kleczkowski, Dr S Humphris
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Background. Production and export of seed potatoes is of immense value to the UK economy, yet threatened by multiple disease threats.
  Understanding tree rings – how the interplay of climate and seed production controls tree growth
  Dr A Hacket-Pain, Prof A Morse
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Tree rings have a broad range of applications in environmental science including quantifying forest growth, carbon storage, and the reconstruction of Holocene climate.
  Integration of metabolic and developmental cues by the Arabidopsis endosperm
  Dr V Andriotis
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Seeds of flowering plants are made of distinct tissues – the embryo, endosperm and integuments – that collectively make a functional unit.
  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.
  Optimising reproductive organ photosynthesis to improve seed oil content
  Dr D O'Maoileidigh
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Increasing crop yields while decreasing environmental impacts of agriculture is one of the major challenges facing modern society.
  An investigation of soil bacteriophages associated with positive and poor crop outcome
  Prof M Clokie
Application Deadline: 6 January 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.
  Ecological Function of a Water-sensing Molecular Fossil
  Research Group: Institute of Life and Earth Sciences
  Dr P C Morris, Dr J Thompson, Dr R Alexander
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Abiotic stress tolerance in plants is a critical attribute and a key objective for plant breeders. The world is experiencing unprecedented increases in average global temperatures and extreme weather events leading to intermittent periods of drought and waterlogging (water stress).
