  BBSRC White Rose DTP Studentship - Role of cytidine deaminase in (epi)genetic adaptation of the plant immune system.
  Prof J Ton, Dr L Smith, Dr J Stassen
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

As sessile organisms, plants are masters in adapting to environmental stresses. Recent work from the Ton lab has shown that plants employ epigenetic mechanisms to prime their immune system long-term against potential pests and diseases.
  KESS2 Scholarship: The Biodiversity and Ecosystem Dynamics of higher delta-plain carboniferous swamps.
  Dr A. Papadopulos
Application Deadline: 20 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This a unique opportunity to conduct evolutionary and paleoecological research on one of the UK’s most well-preserved fossil forests at Brymbo, Wrexham.
  Seed dormancy and germination: understanding the molecular basis to improve seed quality and seedling performance of horticultural and agricultural crops
  Prof G Leubner
Applications accepted all year round
