  THE ARCHAEOLOGY, HISTORY, AND HERITAGE OF SCOTLAND’S SEAWEED INDUSTRY, 17TH–20TH CENTURIES
  Dr M Given
Application Deadline: 13 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The industrial exploitation of seaweed resources was part of life in Scotland for much of the post-medieval period. This important industry connected many rural parts of Scotland with fast-changing economic, political, and scientific developments at a global scale.
  Comparative studies of wound and cancer inflammation in plants and animals
  Prof P B Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

All organisms need to be able to repair wounds. A key aspect of this is combating the potential for infection when barrier layers are breached by tissue damage.
  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.
  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.
  International Ph.D. Programs in the Life Sciences

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Life Science Zurich Graduate School consists of several highly competitive Ph.D. programs. We are run jointly by the ETH Zurich and the University of Zurich.
  MSc by Research Programme: Genetic interactions and novel genes that regulate lignin biosynthesis and straw quality in barley
  Dr C Halpin
Application Deadline: 16 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This course allows you to work alongside our world renowned experts from the School of Life Sciences and gain a ’real research’ experience.
  The impact of gene expression noise on plant fitness under stress conditions linked to climate change
  Dr U Bechtold, Dr R Zabet, Dr A P Harrison
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Start date. October 2020. Duration. 3 years (full time). Location. Colchester Campus. Based in. School of Life Sciences (in collaboration with Department of Mathematical Sciences).
  Plant responses to stress, metabolites for health and fuel from cell walls.
  Prof A Devoto
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Projects are available in the following areas. Stress responses in crops and sustainable biomass production and processing. The project aims at elucidating several aspects of the control of plant defences and to identify environmentally friendly forms of plant protectants, leading to enhanced crop yields.
  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.
  Disease phenomics - quantifying the development of disease symptoms in infected plants
  Dr S A Rolfe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biology is undergoing a revolution as ‘omic technologies allow us to make hundreds or thousands of measurements on large populations of plants.
  PhD in Chemical Ecology
  Dr S Campbell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In response to the near-universal threat of being consumed by insect herbivores, plants have evolved a sophisticated arsenal of chemical defences.
  PhD in the Evolutionary Ecology of Mating Systems
  Dr S Campbell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mating and breeding systems govern a wide range of evolutionary processes in plants and animals, including gene flow, genetic variation, and the strength of natural selection.
  Nutritious crops: genomic approaches to improving the nutritional and commercial value of oilseed rape
  Prof Ian Bancroft, Dr A Harper
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oilseed rape is the third largest source of vegetable oil in the world. It is also a fascinating species in which to undertake genomic studies due to its polyploid ancestry.
  Roots to resilience: climate-proofing crop yields within future salad production
  Prof I Dodd
Application Deadline: 7 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change threatens UK lettuce production by decreasing rainfall and increasing plant water loss. Lettuce plants are initially raised in small peat blocks in a nursery, then transplanted into the fields.
