  Biological implications of genetics variation in rice for mycorrhizal colonisation.
  Prof A Price
Applications accepted all year round
We have demonstrated repeatable and substantial differences in the colonisation of rice cultivars by the model arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungus Rizophagus irregularis and mapped quantitative trait loci for the variation.
  Functional Significance of Al hyper-accumulation in Tropical Forest Trees
  Dr D Burslem, Dr Y Arn Teh
Applications accepted all year round
Numerous plant species take up and store high concentrations of Al from the soil system, despite the toxicity of Al3+ to plant metabolism.
  Physiological and molecular characterisation of altered root hydraulic properties in rice due to allelic variation or genetic manipulation of plasma membrane intrinsic proteins (PIPs, a class of aquaporins)
  Prof A Price
Applications accepted all year round
A cluster of three PIPs on chromosome 7 of rice are all candidate genes for a drought avoidance locus. These genes are highly expressed in roots and thought to have a major role in root hydraulic conductance.
  Trade-offs between pollinator community richness and honey production in upland semi-natural habitats.
  Dr D Burslem, Prof R Van Der Wal
Applications accepted all year round
The pollination services provided by bees and other insects are vital to persistence of Scotland’s semi-natural habitats, and they sustain important rural industries including production of crops, soft fruits and honey.
  Demonstration of anaerobic membrane bioreactors for water and energy reuse in wastewater treatment applications PhD
  Dr A Soares, Prof B Jefferson
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
This PhD position offers an exciting opportunity to resolve key questions around the demonstration of anaerobic municipal wastewater treatment in the temperate climates sponsored by EU H2020 in close collaboration with Severn Trent Water.
  Biogenic emission by microalgae from the maritime continent
  Dr D Callahan
Application Deadline: 19 April 2019
This project aims to measure the halocarbon production and identify the microalgae producing them in the field during a voyage on the RV Investigator while travelling through the region known as the Maritime Continent.
  The genomic signatures of adaptation in harmful Sargassum blooms of the Caribbean Sea (CASE studentship)
  Dr J.H. Bothwell, Dr M Kapralov
Applications accepted all year round
Background. This CASE studentship will apply evolutionary genomic approaches to understand environmental adaptation in the Caribbean harmful bloom-forming macroalgae, Sargassum natans.
  Developing programmable DNA-guided endonucleases for genome engineering
  Prof M Mahfouz
Applications accepted all year round
Bacterial and archaeal species are rich with proteins used for DNA processing or host defense. We aim to engineer some of these proteins and test their ability to generate double strand breaks in a programmed and site-specific fashion.
  Molecular Genetics of Durable Disease Resistance in Wheat
  Prof S Krattinger
Applications accepted all year round
The identification of agriculturally important genes in wheat had long been limited by its large genome, which is five times larger than the human genome.
  Exploring natural diversity in Rubisco activase isoforms to enhance the climate resilience of crops
  Dr E Carmo-Silva, Dr M Lundgren
Application Deadline: 29 March 2019
Rubisco activase is a key regulator of carbon assimilation and has been shown to limit photosynthesis when temperatures increase above the thermal optimum.
