  Evolution in the sea: how do new phytoplankton species form?
  Dr D Filatov
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Photosynthesis in marine phytoplankton is responsible for about half of newly produced organic matter on the planet. The amount of CO2 fixed by phytoplankton is thought to significantly affect the global carbon cycle and climate.
  What lurks beneath: unravelling the chemically-guided ecological interactions of Armillaria fungi, a devastating group of subterranean forest pathogen
  Dr James McDonald, Dr J Vuts
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Armillaria species, are devastating fungal root-rot pathogens that affect over 500 woody plant species globally.
  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.
  New plant species from old genes?
  Research Group: Institute of Molecular Plant Sciences
  Prof A Hudson, Dr C Kidner, Dr A Twyford
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hybridisation opposes speciation, because recombination in hybrids breaks down the combinations of adaptive genes (haplotypes) assembled in their parents.
  A genomic approach to understand insecticide toxicokinetics in a global crop pest. PhD in Biosciences (SWBio DTP)
  Prof C Bass
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Prof Chris Bass, Department of Biosciences, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter. Additional Supervisors.
  Incest and insects: How plant sex affects herbivores and pollinators
  Dr S Campbell, Prof M T Siva-jothy
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A long-standing paradigm in ecology and evolutionary biology suggests that the immense diversity of insects has been driven by adaptation to the defences of the plants they feed on.
  PhD in Crop Domestication and Improvement
  Prof C P Osborne
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Professor Colin Osborne, Department of Animal and Plant Sciences, University of Sheffield, Sheffield, UK. We invite applications for a PhD in the area of crop domestication and improvement.
  PhD in Plant Environmental Physiology
  Prof C P Osborne
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We invite applications for a PhD in the area of plant environmental physiology. Our research uses experiments with wild plants and field studies to address a range of questions about the biology of C 4 plants and savanna ecosystems.
  Investigating Photosynthesis in Nannochloropsis – An Important Algal Genus for Biofuel Production
  Dr D J Gilmour
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the key insights from phylogenetic studies of eukaryotic microorganisms is the enormous diversity within the microalgal group with green algae being similar to plants and other groups such as diatoms being very different.
  EASTBIO: Dehalogenases from the brown algal genome model Ectocarpus siliculosus
  Prof F Kuepper, Dr H Deng, Prof M Jaspars
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type
