  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.
  Remodeling of plant proteolytic systems to boost biopharming and disease resistance
  Dr T Bozkurt, Dr F Guder
Application Deadline: 12 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Autophagy is a self-eating machinery central to cellular homeostasis and coping with stress responses. In addition to facilitating removal of unwanted/foreign proteins in the lysosome, specialized forms of selective autophagy are co-opted to contribute to plant immunity.
  Evolutionary dynamics of diverse communities: linking speciation with contemporary evolution.
  Prof T Barraclough
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

All organisms live in diverse communities with hundreds of other species. Understanding what species are, where they come from, and how they coexist and interact is therefore vital for predicting how living systems will evolve in response to contemporary changes, as well as for knowing where diversity comes from.
  QUADRAT DTP: Optimising water saving management systems for rice grown in saline/sodic environments
  Dr G Norton, Prof A Meharg
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Increases in soil salinity and sodicity are major restrictions on global crop production.
  QUADRAT DTP: Is macroalgal carbon sequestration the ’elephant in the Blue Carbon room’ ?
  Prof U Witte, Dr K O'Driscoll
Application Deadline: 22 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’.
  The Oxford Interdisciplinary Bioscience Doctoral Training Partnership

  (BBSRC DTP) Understanding the contribution of dietary extracellular vesicles to healthy human development
  Prof M Westwood, Dr L Harris, Prof A Nicolaou, Dr A Stevens
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ability to adapt behaviour in response to nutrient availability is important for all cells but particularly so for trophoblasts, as these cells form the placenta - the interface between mother and fetus - and act as fetal sentinels of the maternal environment.
  Evolution and conservation of membrane-associated effector proteins in plant pathogens
  Dr CN Meisrimler
Application Deadline: 25 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We seek a PhD candidate to join a 3-year research program based at the University of Canterbury (UC) to investigate the 3D structure of effector proteins targeting the membrane associated NAC transcription factors.
