Link to group webpage. http://users.ox.ac.uk/~dops0547/. Chloroplasts are responsible for photosynthesis, and are the organelles that define plants [1].
  Do plants always have to behave that way? Understanding the evolution of root behaviour and its effects on fitness in flowering plants on Mount Etna, Sicily
  Dr J Bridle, Prof C S Grierson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

A fundamental issue in biology is understanding how.
  Identifying mechanisms for cell division plane orientation in plants
  Dr J Harrison, Dr T Gorochowski
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Summary. Plant shape is a primary determinant of productivity and yield because it affects light interception and photosynthesis.
  Floral Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) signalling in response to air pollution and climate change
  Dr F Hayes, Dr K Ashworth
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Up to 88% of flowering plant species depend on insect pollinators. Although flowers and their visual cues are known to be important for pollinators, more recently it has been shown that VOCs are also important signals at distances of.
  Comparative genomics, speciation and sustainable food security
  Dr V Savolainen
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Supervisor. Professor Vincent Savolainen, Imperial College London. https://www.imperial.ac.uk/people/v.savolainen. CASE partner. National Botanic Garden of Wales.
  Fruit morphogenetics for seed-size control (OSTERGAARDJ20DTP)
  Prof L Ostergaard
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Flowering plants evolved during the Cretaceous Period >100 million years ago and quickly colonised terrestrial habitats. A major reason for their success was the formation and diversification of fruits that protect and nurture the developing seeds.
  Biogenesis of chloroplasts and development of leaves under light control
  Dr E Lopez-Juez
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research in our lab addresses two of the fundamental biogenesis processes that make plants essential for humanity. the development of leaves and the biogenesis of chloroplasts in leaf cells.
  Understanding signalling networks underpinning key developmental processes during plant evolution
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr J C Coates
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants first appeared on land almost half a billion years ago. All land plants likely evolved from a single aquatic green algal ancestor.
  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.
