Project details. Plants and their products have revolutionarily helped and shaped human development throughout the history of mankind.
  Investigation of a Novel Regulator of Plant Yield and Fitness in Plants
  Dr P Gallois, Dr G Johnson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Autophagy is an incredibly important and highly conserved process across eukaryotes and involves the regulated destruction of unnecessary or damaged components within the cell.
  PhD Studentship Opportunity: Investigation of molecular regulations of protein production in Lemna
  Dr C Barrero-Sicilia, Dr Y Huang
Application Deadline: 22 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University invites applications for a PhD student to join our Hertfordshire Knowledge Exchange Partnership (HKEP) scheme which is 1-year industrial placement followed by a 3-year PhD studentship funded jointly by the European Regional Development Fund, Hertfordshire Local Enterprise Partnership and DryGro.
  The Significance of Macroalgal Detritus for Marine Food Webs and Blue-Carbon Sequestration
  Prof U Witte, Prof W Austin, Dr P Smith
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

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’.
  Enhancing crop growth consistency in vertical farms (DODDJ20CASE)
  Dr A Dodd
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited to a NRPDTP-funded CASE studentship in the laboratories of Antony Dodd and Steven Penfield at the John Innes Centre, in collaboration with vertical agriculture R&D company LettUs Grow.
  How do plants interpret and respond to their complex and fluctuating environment? (DODDJ20DTP)
  Dr A Dodd
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a NRPDTP funded studentship to investigate how plants combine (integrate) multiple environmental cues to regulate a single signalling pathway required for environmental adaptation of photosynthesis.
  Functional analysis of fungal effector proteins in the barley/wheat powdery mildew plant-pathogen interactions.
  Dr L Bindschedler, Prof A Devoto
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pathogens secrete small proteins called effectors or virulence factors which are important for the successful invasion of the host.
  (BBSRC DTP) Quantifying greenhouse gas emissions in agri-ecosystems across multiple scales
  Prof D Johnson, Prof R Bardgett
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This exciting project will provide training for careers in sustainable agriculture. The project will develop new understanding of how grazed grassland management practices influence and mitigate greenhouse gas emissions.
  Tree microbiomes in a changing climate
  Dr G Kettles
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant pathogens pose major challenges to the production of crops and in the resilience of our trees and forests. How we protect plants from their most damaging pathogens is therefore vital to a future of sustainable agriculture within a healthy ecosystem.
  An interdisciplinary assessment of innovative coastal management: the Bacton-Walcott Sandscaping Scheme (TOLHURSTUENV20ARIES)
  Dr T Tolhurst, Dr I Lorenzoni, Mr R Goodliffe
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. Rising sea levels and other effects of climate change are exacerbating coastal change internationally. Recognition of the benefits of coastal defences that work with natural processes has resulted in a shift towards ‘soft’ coastal protection.
