  Behavioural Mechanisms Driving Collective Smothering in Hens
  Dr D Franks, Dr EJH Robinson
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding the qualities of captive environments that cause abnormal behaviour has been a major topic in animal welfare. However, smothering - a type of abnormal behaviour in hens - has received little study to date.
  Developing phage therapy to control plant pathogenic bacteria in the rhizosphere microbiome
  Dr V Friman
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant pathogenic bacteria cause considerable economic losses to food production systems. The main reason for this is that hardly any effective control methods exist to mitigate this damage.
  Dissecting quantitative variation in the plant circadian clock
  Prof S J Davis, Dr D Ezer, Dr M Knight
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The seasonal timing of growth is critical for plant performance. The circadian. clock holds a key place in such seasonal adjustment as crop adaptation to new.
  Does plant pathogen adaptation in environmental reservoirs and secondary host affect its virulence and risk for transmission?
  Dr V Friman, Prof M Brockhurst, Dr D Jeffares
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Even though opportunistic plant pathogens must survive in various natural. environments during transmission between hosts, this crucial part of their life-.
  How does soil microbial diversity impact upon above-ground drought tolerance in plants?
  Dr A Hodge, Dr J Ferrari, Prof J Gray
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microbes perform several key roles in soils including in the supply of many. nutrients through the degradation of soil organic matter, and can contribute to.
  Improving arsenic tolerance in rice
  Prof F J M Maathuis, Dr H V Isaacs
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Arsenic (As) is an extremely toxic metalloid, which occurs ubiquitously in nature but is particularly prevalent in South-East Asia.
  Molecular mechanisms to reduce Arsenic in Rice
  Prof F J M Maathuis, Dr H V Isaacs
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Food security is under pressure all over the globe. Abiotic stress is one of the. largest threats to crop production and amongst these, crop contamination.
  New biological diagnostics for environmental contaminants
  Prof J Moir, Dr S D Johnson
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are interested in recruiting a student interested in using biological methods to detect biological and chemical contamination in environmental samples.
  Nutritious crops: genomic approaches to improving the nutritional and commercial value of oilseed rape
  Prof Ian Bancroft, Dr A Harper
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oilseed rape is the third largest source of vegetable oil in the world. It is also a fascinating species in which to undertake genomic studies due to its polyploid ancestry.
  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.
