  The impact of somatic DNA variation on tree adaptation and evolution
  Dr M Catoni
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In virtually all living organisms, mutations of genomic DNA allow the generation of new traits that, if positively selected, drive adaptation to changing environments and contribute to evolution.
  The impact of somatic DNA variation on tree adaptation and evolution.

PhD Type

In virtually all living organisms, mutations of genomic DNA allow the generation of new traits that, if positively selected, drive adaptation to changing environments and contribute to evolution.
  “Plant plasticity and local adaptation to new pollinators after range expansion“
  Dr M Castellanos
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Organisms can often rapidly adapt to changing environments. To understand this process, we need to study the potential of populations for rapid genetic responses and the contribution of other mechanisms, such as phenotypic plasticity.
  QUADRAT DTP: Genomics approaches to explore the secrets of remarkable plants: Soil/root microbiome interaction and edaphic stress adaptation
  Dr C Meharg, Dr G Norton, Prof A Meharg
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The wild grasses Holcus lanatus, Agrostis capillaris and Deschampsia cespitosa are characterised by their extensive environmental range and resilience to environmental stress.
  Caustic response: understanding plant adaptation to high pH and its application to remediation of alkaline industrial residues.
  Research Group: Centre for Plant Sciences
  Prof A Baker, Prof D I Stewart
Application Deadline: 1 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Motivation. Around two billion tonnes of alkaline residues are produced globally each year by industrial processes. These residues are frequently stored in waste piles or landfills, and can be an environmental hazard if allowed to generate dust or if rainwater infiltrates the waste (Gomes et al 2016).
  Molecular, biochemical and developmental analysis of root traits for low P adaptation in foxtail millet.
  Prof A Baker, Dr S Kepinski
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Phosphorus is an essential macronutrient for plant growth and cannot be replaced by any other element. It is the second most limiting nutrient after N.
  Effects of microplastic on ecosystem services in salt marshes (NOLTESU20SCI50)
  Dr S Nolte, Dr T Tolhurst, Dr A Mayes
Application Deadline: 24 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microplastic (MP) pollution has generated huge scientific and public interest in recent years. Early research mainly focused on the marine environment, studying MP abundance and impacts on fauna.
  QUADRAT DTP: Is macroalgal carbon sequestration the ’elephant in the Blue Carbon room’ ?
  Prof U Witte, Dr K O'Driscoll
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Marine plants draw down CO2, and in a world of rising atmospheric CO2 levels carbon sinks in vegetated coastal ecosystems can sequester CO2 on geological time scales and are now referred to as ’Blue Carbon’.
  Evolution and conservation of membrane-associated effector proteins in plant pathogens
  Dr CN Meisrimler
Application Deadline: 25 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We seek a PhD candidate to join a 3-year research program based at the University of Canterbury (UC) to investigate the 3D structure of effector proteins targeting the membrane associated NAC transcription factors.
