  Biodiversity conservation ex situ or in situ with a focus on genetic diversity.
  Dr N Maxted
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Field studies, ecogeography, geographic information systems and estimation of patterns of genetic diversity, IUCN taxonomic and genetic threat assessment will help elucidate conservation strategies and taxonomic clarity of critically endanged plant species.
  QUADRAT DTP: Do plant communities manipulate soil for drought resistance?
  Prof P Hallett, Prof M Emmerson
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants have differing abilities to engineer soil to make them more productive and stable under stress, but the mechanisms that underpin processes remain poorly understood, despite their significance to soil sustainability, food security and climate change.
  QUADRAT DTP: Environmental ancient DNA analysis of Lateglacial and Early Holocene contexts in Ireland and Scotland
  Dr L Girdland Flink, Dr G Plunkett
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to refine our understanding of Lateglacial and Early Holocene biodiversity and ecosystems in Scotland and Ireland using ancient DNA extracted from ancient sediments (sedimentary ancient DNA, or sedaDNA).
  MYCORRHIZAL ADAPTATIONS TO ARIDITY AND DROUGHT IN AUSTRALIAN ENVIRONMENTS
  Prof J Powell
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The majority of plant species form partnerships with mycorrhizal fungi that exhibit diverse life histories, with evidence that this diversity drives ecosystem functioning in a variety of ecosystem types.
  MYCORRHIZAL ECOLOGICAL STRATEGIES ALONG GRADIENTS OF NUTRIENT LIMITATION
  Prof J Powell
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The majority of plant species, including most agriculturally important species, form partnerships with mycorrhizal fungi. These fungi exhibit diverse life histories, with evidence that this diversity drives ecosystem functioning in grasslands, woodlands, forests and arable systems.
  SEESALT: Novel ways to ’SEE’ coastal ’SALT’ marshes using low-cost drones and sensors
  Dr D Green, Dr D Mauquoy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Saltmarshes are found extensively along low wave energy coastlines resulting from fine sediment accumulation and vegetation establishment.
  QUADRAT DTP CASE: Sustainable Resilience to Coastal Erosion: Innovative Approaches to Protection of Assets Along Coastlines at Risk
  Dr D Green, Prof J McKinley
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

All coastlines are subject to dynamic change through wave and wind action resulting in significant loss or gain of land through erosion and/or accretion.
  QUADRAT DTP: Conservation implications of variation in reproductive traits among fragmented populations of tropical forest trees
  Prof D Burslem, Dr P Caplat
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The persistence of plant populations in fragmented landscapes is dependent on adequate gene flow via seed and pollen dispersal.
  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’.
  QUADRAT DTP: Optimising water saving management systems for rice grown in saline/sodic environments
  Dr G Norton, Prof A Meharg
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Increases in soil salinity and sodicity are major restrictions on global crop production.
