  EASTBIO: Resistance in Crop Roots: Functional Analysis of the H2-Meditated Response to Nematodes
  Dr S Mantelin, Prof J Jones
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Resistance genes provide plants with protection against a range of pathogens. Despite their use in crop breeding programmes, our knowledge of how plant resistance genes function is still sketchy and mainly based on studies in leaves rather than roots.
  BBSRC SWBio DTP studentship: Metabolic engineering in mint plants: increasing essential oil yields through genetic manipulation of biosynthetic pathways
  Dr S Scofield
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This studentship is an excellent opportunity to become part of an international Global Challenges Research Fund project to enhance the yield of high-value essential oil compounds in Mentha (mint) plants in order to produce elite mint varieties for cultivation and commercial exploitation by local farming communities in rural Uganda.
  Dynamic Patterning Underlying Grass Organ Shape
  Research Group: Institute of Molecular Plant Sciences
  Dr A Richardson, Dr S Spoel
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Leaf and floral organ shape are intricately linked to plant productivity. In grass crops such as barley, this relationship between shape and productivity directly impacts on grain yield.
  Reprogramming stomatal behaviour to reduce water use in crops
  Prof L Sweetlove, Prof R G Ratcliffe
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Future food security will depend on developing crop plants that are as efficient as possible in their utilisation of finite resources such as water.
  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.
  Transcriptional battles in plant-pathogen interactions: understanding and re-wiring gene regulatory networks to enhance disease resistance
  Prof K Denby, Prof I A Graham
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The severity of plant disease is determined by a battle between pathogen virulence and host plant immunity – understanding this relationship is key to developing sustainable methods of pathogen control.
