  Methods for quantitative genetic analyses in autotetraploids
  Prof Z Luo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Methods for quantitative genetic analysis have been well established in almost all important diploid plants and animal including humans, and have served as essential tools for dissecting the genetic architectures underlying agronomically, evolutionarily and medically interesting quantitative and complex traits.
  The impact of deforestation on an obligate ant/plant farming symbiosis
  Dr G Chomicki
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are seeking a highly motivated PhD student to join this exciting project on the macroevolution of mutualisms. Students with background including computer science, applied mathematics and environmental science are encouraged to apply in addition to those from pure biological sciences.
  Applying machine learning and artificial intelligence to decode complex patterns of DNA methylation (HALLE20DTP1)
  Prof A Hall
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

In plants DNA methylation plays an important role in regulating gene expression. DNA methylation can also act as a “soft mutation” creating phenotypic variation.
  Understanding and predicting the effects of climate change on European yields of oilseed rape (PENFIELDJ20DTP)
  Dr S Penfield
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change is now widely understood to be impacting food supplies. Ensuring future food security will require understanding how climate change will affect crop yields in different agricultural systems and the design of appropriate measures for adaptation.
  EASTBIO: Holistic approach to internal parasite control on hill and upland sheep farms
  Dr F Kenyon
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD will investigate ways to optimise roundworm and liver fluke control in hill and upland sheep, to address the issue of increased anthelmintic (wormer) resistance in flocks.
  Statistical genetics and genomics of complex traits
  Dr L Leach, Prof Z Luo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A highly motivated student is sought to train as a statistical geneticist working on the dissection of complex trait phenotypes in human, plant and animal populations into their underlying genetic components.
  Calling in the wilderness: the use of Passive Acoustic Monitoring in biodiversity surveys (NEWSONUBTO20ARIES)
  Dr S Newson, Dr B Milner
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. By 2020, the BTO will be in its second year of an exciting 5-year landscape restoration program in Belarus and Ukraine – ‘Wilderness without borders.
  Will coupling the Met Office forecast model to an ocean model improve weather predictions in the tropics? (MATTHEWSUENV20ARIES)
  Prof A J Matthews, Dr B Webber
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Scientific background. Numerical weather prediction (NWP) is the main tool behind weather forecasting of rainfall, temperature, winds and other meteorological variables.
  EASTBIO Hair density as a target in crop improvement
  Research Group: Institute of Molecular Plant Sciences
  Prof A Hudson, Dr C A Kidner
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Epidermal hairs (trichomes) protect plants from pests (and the diseases they carry), UV light and drought. Some also secrete high-value products, including important pharmaceuticals.
  The circadian clock in the ageing plant
  Dr D Ezer, Prof S J Davis
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants respond to environmental signals in a time-of-day dependent manner,. but we do not yet know how this process is affected by age.
