  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.
  The interactive effects of climate change and plant species invasion on plant and microbial trait diversity
  Dr J Deslippe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project addresses the interactive effects of climate change and plant species invasion on plant and microbial trait diversity and ecosystem processes along elevational gradients in Tongariro National Park, New Zealand, with a particular emphasis on mycorrhizas and plant root traits.
  Herbivore and mycorrhizal mediation of carbon cycling in heather moorlands
  Dr S M Sait, Dr K. Field, Prof P Chapman
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The multiple drivers of environmental change, such as climate change and pollution, have led to widespread negative impacts on ecosystem functioning and services that are critical for human well-being.
  Biodiversity resilience and ecosystem services in post-conflict socio-ecological systems in Colombia. Self funded Geography PhD
  Dr TR Feldpausch
Application Deadline: 3 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisors. Dr Ted Feldpausch, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter. Prof Toby Pennington, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter.
  PhD Studentship in Natural and Environmental Sciences - Effects of landscape management and functional biodiversity on ecosystem service provision in complex tropical landscapes, East Africa
  Prof Y Teh, Dr M Pfeifer
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Number of awards. 1. Start date and duration. September 2019 for 3 years. Overview. Agricultural expansion in the tropics is leading to widespread biodiversity loss, altered ecosystem functioning and impaired ecosystem service delivery.
  Plant adaptation in agroecosystems: the ecological genetics of a major agricultural weed.
  Dr P Neve, Dr D MacGregor
Application Deadline: 2 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Weedy plants provide one of the most intriguing and economically-important examples of rapid evolution in response to human-directed selection pressures.
  The role of forest demography in controlling the terrestrial carbon sink
  Dr T Pugh, Dr T Matthews
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Forest demography, that is the establishment and mortality rates of trees, and the structure of that vegetation within forests, is a fundamental factor underlying the function of a forest and the services it provides.
  What drives variability in tree mortality across global forests?
  Dr T Pugh, Dr T Matthews
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Why do trees die? How do the rates and drivers of tree mortality vary from the tropical rainforest to the boreal? How do these mortality rates affect forest structure? These questions are crucial in order to understand large-scale forest dynamics.
  PhD Scholarship in molecular biology of plant stress adaptation: The role of the membrane-associated NAC transcription factors
  Prof IA Dickie
Application Deadline: 21 June 2019

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 role of membrane associated NAC transcription factors in plant stress adaptation.
  Dissecting cereal vernalization in the field and on the chromosome
  Research Group: Centre for Plant Sciences
  Dr L Dixon, Dr S Kepinski
Application Deadline: 21 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many of the essential crops across the world are monocot cereal plants (eg. rice, maize, wheat). However, the challenges to maintain and improve the yield of these crops are increasing.
