  An ancient transcription factor controlling cuticle development and water transport in the liverwort Marchantia polymorpha
  Research Group: Institute of Molecular Plant Sciences
  Dr W J Goodrich, Dr C Kidner
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We identified a basic helix loop helix transcription factor (called ZOU) which is specifically expressed in the endosperm of seed in flowering plants.
  EASTBIO An ancient transcription factor controlling cuticle development and water transport in the liverwort Marchantia polymorpha
  Research Group: Institute of Molecular Plant Sciences
  Dr W J Goodrich, Dr C A Kidner
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We identified a basic helix loop helix transcription factor (called ZOU) which is specifically expressed in the endosperm of seed in flowering plants.
  EASTBIO: Resistance in Crop Roots: Functional Analysis of the H2-Meditated Response to Nematodes
  Dr S Mantelin, Prof J Jones
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Resistance genes provide plants with protection against a range of pathogens. Despite their use in crop breeding programmes, our knowledge of how plant resistance genes function is still sketchy and mainly based on studies in leaves rather than roots.
  Forest impacts on climate; what are the controls on greenhouse gas emissions from trees?
  Prof V Gauci, Dr N Kettridge, Dr J Larsen, Dr S Ullah
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Forest are well known for their globally important role in the carbon cycle. Despite this many questions remain, especially with lesser known but highly important trace gas emissions (methane and nitrous oxide) which play a critical role in forest carbon and nutrient cycling.
  Seeing the water through the trees: how much water will forests of the future hold?
  Dr T Pugh, Dr J Larsen, Prof V Gauci
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tree death in extreme droughts and heatwaves has been widely reported across all major forest biomes over the last few years (e.g.Hartmann et al., 2018; Lewis et al., 2011; Peng et al., 2011; Stovall et al., 2019), and the frequency and severity of such events is expected to increase in many regions.
  Therapeutic resolution of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) by natural products
  Research Group: Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics
  Dr T Nasim, Prof C Wright
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a devastating cardiovascular disorder which, if left untreated, leads to heart failure and death.
  Post-translational regulation of transcription dynamics in plant immunity
  Research Group: Institute of Molecular Plant Sciences
  Dr S Spoel, Dr E Bayne
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Precise regulation of gene transcription is vital for all organisms. In eukaryotes, dynamic changes in gene transcription orchestrate cell development and cellular responses to the ever changing environment.
