  BBSCR ICase project: What makes a good female? Trait characterization of female fertility traits for hybrid development in wheat
  Prof Z A Wilson, Dr J Fernandez
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Successful reproduction is critical to seed set and crop yields. Self-fertilisation typically occurs in cereals, however hybrids, the products of cross-fertilisation, tend to more resilient and have up to 20% increased yield potential compared to inbred equivalents.
  BBSRC iCase Project: Enhancing Barley Environmental Stress Tolerance Through Targeted Mutagenesis
  Dr G Mendiondo, Dr D Cook
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Global warming and the predicted impact on seasonal rainfall variation suggest that we may see both drier and wetter growing seasons in the future.
  Role of Auxin in Phytophthora Root Rot Disease Development in Soft Fruit
  Dr E Gilroy, Dr C Simpson, Prof M Grant
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Brief Introduction. Phytophthora species that infect soft fruit are currently poorly understood and understudied pathogens. They cause significant economic and environmental impact on soft fruit production in the UK.
  Statistical genetics and genomics of complex traits
  Dr L Leach, Prof Z Luo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A highly motivated student is sought to train as a statistical geneticist working on the dissection of complex trait phenotypes in human, plant and animal populations into their underlying genetic components.
  Understanding hypoxia tolerance mechanisms for rice improvement
  Dr F Theodoulou, Dr D Wells
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We have an exciting new opportunity to help develop novel rice varieties to feed the world. Rice is the staple food for half of the world’s population, however there is a pressing need to develop rice varieties with improved germination and seedling establishment under anaerobic conditions.
  PhD in Plants and Microbes: crop production and protection, the interaction between plants and other plants, pests and pathogens, and soils, and the interactions of ecosystems with global change
  Dr D Childs
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants underpin life on Earth. In Sheffield, world leading plant research is undertaken across all scales from the molecular level through to the leaf and root, whole plant and ecosystem.
