  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.
  Biodiversity conservation ex situ or in situ with a focus on genetic diversity.
  Dr N Maxted
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Field studies, ecogeography, geographic information systems and estimation of patterns of genetic diversity, IUCN taxonomic and genetic threat assessment will help elucidate conservation strategies and taxonomic clarity of critically endanged plant species.
  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.
  KESS2 Scholarship: The effect of managed honeybees on wild pollinator networks.
  Dr A Malhotra, Dr M Cross
Application Deadline: 30 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Increasing interest in beekeeping using the western honeybee Apis mellifera has led to concerns that managed bees may negatively affect wild pollinators (including other wild bees, flies, butterflies, moths, beetles and hemipterans).
  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.
  Sex pheromone metabolism in Coccoidea (PATRONE20DTP1)
  Dr N Patron
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sex pheromones are substances secreted by animals that elicit powerful attractant effects and mating stimuli on individuals of the same species.
  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.
  A helping hand: signal transduction in plant immunity (BANFIELDJ20DTP)
  Prof M Banfield
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant diseases are a continuous threat to food production and a major constraint on achieving global food security. One approach to restricting plant diseases is to understand how plant immune receptors recognise the presence of pathogens and transduce signals that lead to disease resistance.
  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.
  Enhancing crop growth consistency in vertical farms (DODDJ20CASE)
  Dr A Dodd
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited to a NRPDTP-funded CASE studentship in the laboratories of Antony Dodd and Steven Penfield at the John Innes Centre, in collaboration with vertical agriculture R&D company LettUs Grow.
