  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
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.
  MPhil Scholarship: Developing Oats for Improving Human and Animal Health
  Dr I P Shah
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
TO READ THE FULL PROJECT DESCRIPTION PLEASE VISIT. http://kess2.ac.uk/aum30004/. Available evidence highlights a major opportunity to add significant value to oats through the isolation and quantification of lipids as functional ingredients in the human food chain or for use in the cosmetic industry.
  Green cities: how our decisions affect landscape biodiversity
  Dr A Helden, Dr T Ings
Applications accepted all year round
Research Group. Animal and Environment Research Group (AERG). https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-technology/research/our-research-institutes-and-groups/animal-and-environment-research-group.
  Extending global forest carbon models based on LIDAR from tropics to other bioregions
  Dr R Valbuena
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
LiDAR is a technology based on a laser mounted on a plane or satellite, which can yield detailed scans of forest ecosystems. This valuable information allows detailed analyses of the ecology and dynamics of tree populations, and it is commonly used for estimating forest carbon stocks.
  Understanding parallel origins of industrial metal tolerance in Silene uniflora
  Dr A. Papadopulos
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Climate change, urbanisation and exploitation of natural resources increasingly alter the environment, posing significant challenges for plants and animals.
  Soil microbes to mitigate climate change
  Dr J Whitaker
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Human populations are expected to increase by 50% to 9 billion by 2050 as climate change continues – together these changes will place unprecedented pressure on the Earth’s finite and fragile natural resources.
  Soil microbes to mitigate climate change
  Dr J Whitaker, Prof N Ostle
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Why is this project important?. Human populations are expected to increase by 50% to 9 billion by 2050 as climate change continues – together these changes will place unprecedented pressure on the Earth’s finite and fragile natural resources.
