  Understanding protein impact on soft wheat flour functionality: identification of protein markers for soft wheat breeding.
  Dr P Tosi, Prof D O'Sullivan
Application Deadline: 19 April 2019
This is a fantastic opportunity to work at the pre-breeding of soft wheat, specifically targeting its processing quality for the bakery sector.
  Understanding protein impact on soft wheat flour functionality: identification of protein markers for soft wheat breeding.

This is a fantastic opportunity to work at the pre-breeding of soft wheat, specifically targeting its processing quality for the bakery sector.
  Molecular Genetics of Durable Disease Resistance in Wheat
  Prof S Krattinger
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  BBSCR ICase project: What makes a good female? Trait characterization of female fertility traits for hybrid development in wheat
  Prof Z A Wilson, Dr J Fernandez
Application Deadline: 4 April 2019
Successful reproduction is critical to seed set and crop yields. Self-fertilisation typically occurs in cereals, however hybrids, the products of cross-fertilisation, tend to more resilient and have up to 20% increased yield potential compared to inbred equivalents.
  Saving our daily bread from yellow rust (WULFFJ19CASE2)
  Dr B Wulff
Application Deadline: 23 April 2019
Throughout history, disease epidemics have been ubiquitous in agriculture. Yellow rust is a major fungal disease of wheat. In recent years, new isolates of the pathogen have caused wide-scale epidemics in Europe, Africa and the Americas.
  Determining the effects of environment on grain protein and processing quality of wheat
  Prof P Shewry
Application Deadline: 23 April 2019
A PhD studentship is available to explore the effects of environmental factors on the protein content and composition of wheat grain, and the impact of this on processing quality.
  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
Pathogens secrete small proteins called effectors or virulence factors which are important for the successful invasion of the host.
  Conservation and crop protection unite to save the endangered Barberry Carpet moth (SAUNDERSJ19CASE2)
  Dr D Saunders
Application Deadline: 23 April 2019
Common barberry is a native hedgerow plant throughout the UK. However, in the late 19th and early 20th century it was removed from many sites as it was linked to deleterious effects on wheat crops caused by stem rust infection.
  Crop management strategies for low asparagine grains to limit acrylamide-forming potential
  Dr N Halford
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
A fully-funded, 4-year BBSRC Collaborative Training Partnership (CTP) studentship, supervised by Professor Nigel Halford at Rothamsted Research and Dr Steve Elmore at the University of Reading, in partnership with Mondelēz International, starting 1st October 2019.
  Creating the next generation LPMOs for biofuel production – to start October 2019 - for an MSc by Dissertation (MSD)
  Dr J Worrall, Dr M Hough
Application Deadline: 24 April 2019
Background. Deconstructing plant and non-plant (e.g. fungal) biomass to value added products will become a major route to obtain sustainable materials in many industrial processes like food, feed manufacturing, non-food and renewable bioenergy.
