  BBSRC EASTBIO PhD Programme: How does jasmonate control cereal development?
  Dr S McKim, Dr J Bos
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4 year PhD project is part of a competition funded by EASTBIO BBSRC Doctoral Training Partnership http://www.eastscotbiodtp.ac.uk/how-apply-0.
  BBSRC SWBio DTP studentship: Pollen-pistil communication in flowering plants: a role for pollen endocytosis?
  Dr B De Graaf, Dr E Lloyd-Evans
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Reproduction success in flowering plants is unequivocally determined by the species-specific communication events between pollen and pistil resulting in fertilisation, and the development of viable seeds ultimately.
  Studying chloroplast biogenesis in the basal land plant Marchantia polymorpha: Using CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing and forward genetics to assess functional conservation and seek novel components
  Prof P Jarvis
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Link to group webpage. http://users.ox.ac.uk/~dops0547/. Chloroplasts are responsible for photosynthesis, and are the organelles that define plants [1].
  Do plants always have to behave that way? Understanding the evolution of root behaviour and its effects on fitness in flowering plants on Mount Etna, Sicily
  Dr J Bridle, Prof C S Grierson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A fundamental issue in biology is understanding how.
  Identifying mechanisms for cell division plane orientation in plants
  Dr J Harrison, Dr T Gorochowski
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Summary. Plant shape is a primary determinant of productivity and yield because it affects light interception and photosynthesis.
  Floral Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) signalling in response to air pollution and climate change
  Dr F Hayes, Dr K Ashworth
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Up to 88% of flowering plant species depend on insect pollinators. Although flowers and their visual cues are known to be important for pollinators, more recently it has been shown that VOCs are also important signals at distances of.
  Comparative genomics, speciation and sustainable food security
  Dr V Savolainen
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Professor Vincent Savolainen, Imperial College London. https://www.imperial.ac.uk/people/v.savolainen. CASE partner. National Botanic Garden of Wales.
  Fruit morphogenetics for seed-size control (OSTERGAARDJ20DTP)
  Prof L Ostergaard
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Flowering plants evolved during the Cretaceous Period >100 million years ago and quickly colonised terrestrial habitats. A major reason for their success was the formation and diversification of fruits that protect and nurture the developing seeds.
  Biogenesis of chloroplasts and development of leaves under light control
  Dr E Lopez-Juez
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research in our lab addresses two of the fundamental biogenesis processes that make plants essential for humanity. the development of leaves and the biogenesis of chloroplasts in leaf cells.
  Understanding signalling networks underpinning key developmental processes during plant evolution
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr J C Coates
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants first appeared on land almost half a billion years ago. All land plants likely evolved from a single aquatic green algal ancestor.
  An ancient transcription factor controlling cuticle development and water transport in the liverwort Marchantia polymorpha
  Research Group: Institute of Molecular Plant Sciences
  Dr W J Goodrich, Dr C Kidner
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We identified a basic helix loop helix transcription factor (called ZOU) which is specifically expressed in the endosperm of seed in flowering plants.

We identified a basic helix loop helix transcription factor (called ZOU) which is specifically expressed in the endosperm of seed in flowering plants.
  Biodiversity, biogeography, conservation and restoration of isolated inselberg vegetation in the dry biomes of Latin America. PhD in Geography (NERC GW4+ DTP)
  Prof T Pennington
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Prof Toby Pennington, Department of Geography, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter.
  Hormonal control of reproductive architecture in bread wheat
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr T.A. Bennett, Dr S Kepinski
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

With Dr Andrea Harper, University of York. Key to the reproductive success of flowering plants is the production of appropriate numbers of fruit and seed in space and time (reproductive architecture).
  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.
  The impacts of climate change on pollinator-plant interactions
  Dr R Whitlock, Dr K L Evans, Dr C García
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change has pervasive impacts on biological diversity, determining species persistence, geographical distributions, trait expression and genetic composition.
