Inflorescence architecture in the laboratory and field

Plant form is shaped by both genetics and environment; changes in response to temperature can be the most dramatic of all. Many plants synchronize flowering with spring by sensing and storing an epigenetic ‘memory’ of cold, which then affects the timing, morphology and productivity of the inflorescence produced.

Pharmaceutical process development, optimization and scale-up of plant-based cancer drugs

Project - We are pleased to announce an exciting PhD opportunity within our ground-breaking project dedicated to the optimization of extraction and purification processes of plant-derived molecules, with potential applications in cancer treatment as a collaborative effort with the South Australian immunoGENomics Cancer Institute.

Bioaugmentation of Soil with Engineered Bacteria to Improve Climate Tolerance of Plants

The successful PhD student will join the TOLERATE Horizon Europe project. TOLERATE is a €5M, 14 partner project that aims to develop novel strategies to improve the climate tolerance (particularly drought tolerance) of plant crops. Read more

Ecological geometry: applying geometric and topological concepts and tools to model how animals interact with each other and their environment

These projects are open to students worldwide, but have no funding attached. Therefore, the successful applicant will be expected to fund tuition fees at the relevant level (home or international) and any applicable additional research costs. Read more

Friend or Foe: microbe-plant interactions in agriculture

Supervisors. Professor John Hammond (School of Agriculture, University of Reading) Dr Anne D. Jungblut, Dr Silvia Pressel, Prof Matt Clark (Natural History Museum). Read more

4-year PhD Studentship: Impact of the microbial biodiversity and micro-ecological processes on the transmission and persistency of diseases in dairy farms: a multidisciplinary, adaptive research approach

Soil provides the basic structure for the development of the ecosystem where humans and animals live. Soil microbiota, including different pathogenic and non-pathogenic microorganisms, are responsible for the health and maintenance of the ecosystem, creating the greatest biodiversity in the world.

Examining the role of culture, religion and traditional knowledge on risk perception in food safety.

  Research Group: Architecture, Built Environment and Planning
Access to sufficient amounts of safe and nutritious food is key to sustaining life and promoting good health. The WHO (2022) estimates that 600 million – almost 1 in 10 people in the world – fall ill after eating contaminated food and 420 000 die every year. Read more

Heat shapes plant growth - unravelling crosstalk between temperature and hormone signalling pathways in the control of leaf development

Ambient temperature has profound effects on almost all aspects of plant development, from the onset of seed germination and seedling establishment to flower and fruit production, and thereby also impacts crop quality and yield. Read more
