  Therapeutic resolution of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) by natural products
  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.
  Pears, pests and natural enemies: modelling tri-trophic interactions in a changing climate
  Dr D Senapathi
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate influences the timing of key events including crop flowering and peak abundance and activity of crop pests and their natural enemies.
  Elucidating plant alkaloid biosynthesis
  Dr B R Lichman, Dr W Unsworth
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants are capable of forming complex natural products from simple starting materials. Many of these natural products are bioactive, but access is limited as they are difficult to synthesise using organic chemistry and are present in small quantities in the natural source.
  The role of insect-plant-fungus interactions in natural and managed systems
  Dr P E Hatcher
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants are attacked both by insects and pathogenic fungi, often at the same time, yet these are often studied by different specialists.
  Does crop diversification influence the physical and chemical traits that attract pests and beneficial insects?
  Prof J Koricheva
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Crop diversification strategies such as intercropping and agroforestry are increasingly promoted as a means to enhance the sustainability of agriculture and ensure a stable food supply.
  The impact of somatic DNA variation on tree adaptation and evolution
  Dr M Catoni
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In virtually all living organisms, mutations of genomic DNA allow the generation of new traits that, if positively selected, drive adaptation to changing environments and contribute to evolution.
  Forest resilience and recovery through the lens of volcanic disturbances
  Dr S Watt, Dr T Pugh, Dr T Matthews, Dr S Ebmeier
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Explosive volcanic eruptions represent a major natural perturbation to surrounding environments.
  Fusion Forest : securing disease resilience through pattern variability
  Dr B Fraga, Dr E Luna-Diez
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Trees have proficient tools that allow them to survive biological threats. However, we have seen recent outbreaks of tree diseases that we were not prepared for.
  The impact of somatic DNA variation on tree adaptation and evolution.
  Dr M Catoni, Dr E Luna-Diez
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In virtually all living organisms, mutations of genomic DNA allow the generation of new traits that, if positively selected, drive adaptation to changing environments and contribute to evolution.
  QUADRAT DTP: Dynamics of carbon capture in Scottish and Irish peatlands over the past centuries
  Dr M Blaauw, Dr D Mauquoy
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Peatlands store and potentially release large amounts of carbon, and thus it is essential to predict their role in future warming (e.g., Gallego-Sala et al., 2018; Ferretto et al.
