  Antibiotic discovery in the wheat rhizosphere (HUTCHINGSU20DTP)
  Prof M Hutchings, Prof B Wilkinson
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is focussed on the interactions between common bread wheat Triticum aestivum, which provides fundamental nutrition to much of the world’s population, and antibiotic-producing Streptomyces bacteria.
  Molecular Genetics of Durable Disease Resistance in Wheat
  Prof S Krattinger
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The identification of agriculturally important genes in wheat had long been limited by its large genome, which is five times larger than the human genome.
  Making climate change work for crop yield potential
  Dr L Dixon, Dr T.A. Bennett, Prof B H Davies
Application Deadline: 15 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project summary. We know temperature affects how plants grow but we do not understand the effects of temperature fluctuations, particularly those that are occurring outside the classic seasonal norm.
  Supercharging photosynthesis to feed the world (HALLE20DTP2)
  Prof A Hall
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

To feed an ever-increasing population we must produce more of the crops that sustain us. Wheat provides 20% of the total calories consumed worldwide and we need to increase our productivity to avoid food shortages.
  Functional analysis of fungal effector proteins in the barley/wheat powdery mildew plant-pathogen interactions.
  Dr L Bindschedler, Prof A Devoto
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pathogens secrete small proteins called effectors or virulence factors which are important for the successful invasion of the host.
  Wheat development in a changing world
  Research Group: Centre for Plant Sciences
  Dr L Dixon, Dr A Bretman
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

How do we feed a growing population in a sustainable way during an era of unprecedented climate change? A key component to meeting this challenge is to develop crops which are innately robust against climate change without requiring more chemical inputs to maintain yield.
  Can improved genetic understanding of grain weight help feed the world? (UAUYJ20DTP)
  Dr C Uauy
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Wheat provides 20% of the calories and protein consumed by humans. The world population will reach 9 billion by 2050, which requires food production to more than double.
  Resistance by Elimination (NICHOLSONJ20CASE)
  Prof P Nicholson
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Wheat is one of the most important cereal crops in the world and provides 20% of the protein and calories for 4.5 billion people.
