  Identification and characterisation of novel QTLs and genes for dietary fibre in grain of bread wheat
  Dr A Lovegrove, Prof P Shewry
Application Deadline: 30 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD studentship is available to identify and characterise new genes controlling the content of dietary fibre (arabinoxylan) in wheat flour.
  Molecular Genetics of Durable Disease Resistance in Wheat
  Prof S Krattinger
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The identification of agriculturally important genes in wheat had long been limited by its large genome, which is five times larger than the human genome.
  Using synthetic biology to develop natural sunscreen compounds from algae
  Prof M X Caddick
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will employ synthetic biology to investigate, manipulate and optimise production of Mycosporine-like Amino Acids (MAAs).
  Evolution and biochemistry of photosynthesis - electron transfer reactions, renewable energy production, biotechnology, and chloroplast genomes
  Prof C J Howe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The common theme of our work is the biochemistry and evolution of photosynthesis.
  How does clubroot obtain nutrients from its living plant host?
  Dr S A Rolfe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Clubroot is an important pathogen of Brassica crops. The disease is found throughout the world and causes severe economic losses.
  Unraveling winter sleep to understand spring reactivation: improved understanding of leaf out phenology in temperate deciduous trees by gaining insight in environmental controls of bud dormancy

Application Deadline: 15 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Faculty of Science is seeking to fill a full-time (100%) vacancy in the Department of Biology for a doctoral student in the area of molecular mechanisms of bud-dormancy of trees.
  From start to finish: roles for the N-end rule pathway of protein degradation in plant development and stress-response
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr D Gibbs
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In order to effectively co-ordinate their growth and development, plants need to be able to respond to changes in their environment, whether it is adapting to the seasons or coping with stresses.
  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.

  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.
  The molecular mechanisms underlying reproductive organ photosynthesis
  Dr D O'Maoileidigh
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Increasing crop yields while decreasing environmental impacts of agriculture is one of the major challenges facing modern society.
