  Dissecting the causes of reproductive mode variation in the yellow monkeyflower (Mimulus guttatus)
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr M Hartfield
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Perennial plants exhibit a wide variety of reproductive modes, from exclusively sexual reproduction through seeds, to relying almost entirely on asexual propagation.
  EASTBIO Dissecting the causes of reproductive mode variation in the yellow monkeyflower (Mimulus guttatus)
  Research Group: Institute of Evolutionary Biology
  Dr M Hartfield, Dr M Vallejo-Marin
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Perennial plants exhibit a wide variety of reproductive modes, from exclusively sexual reproduction through seeds, to relying almost entirely on asexual propagation.
  Hormonal control of reproductive architecture in bread wheat
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr T.A. Bennett, Dr S Kepinski
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

With Dr Andrea Harper, University of York. Key to the reproductive success of flowering plants is the production of appropriate numbers of fruit and seed in space and time (reproductive architecture).
  The molecular mechanisms underlying reproductive organ photosynthesis
  Dr D O'Maoileidigh
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Increasing crop yields while decreasing environmental impacts of agriculture is one of the major challenges facing modern society.
  The roots of yield: coordination of shoot growth with soil environment
  Dr T.A. Bennett
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants are able to sense a large number of rhizospheric stimuli including the availability of nitrate and phosphate, soil volume and depth, and the presence of neighbouring plants.
  The impacts of climate change on pollinator-plant interactions
  Dr R Whitlock, Dr K L Evans, Dr C García
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change has pervasive impacts on biological diversity, determining species persistence, geographical distributions, trait expression and genetic composition.
  Fruit morphogenetics for seed-size control (OSTERGAARDJ20DTP)
  Prof L Ostergaard
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Flowering plants evolved during the Cretaceous Period >100 million years ago and quickly colonised terrestrial habitats. A major reason for their success was the formation and diversification of fruits that protect and nurture the developing seeds.
  Seed dormancy and germination: understanding the molecular basis to improve seed quality and seedling performance of horticultural and agricultural crops
  Prof G Leubner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant seeds and fruits are at the beginning and the end of most important food supply chains that are central to human existence (food security).
  Understanding the response of variability in tree reproduction (masting) to climatic and environmental change
  Dr A Hacket-Pain, Prof A Morse
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Many tree species show a reproductive strategy known as masting, which is characterised by switching between years of bumper investment in reproduction (“mast years”), and years of low investment.
  Developing a conservation strategy for rare Senecio cambrensis (Welsh ragwort), the only truly endemic plant of Wales
  Prof S Hiscock, Dr S Harris
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

https://www.plants.ox.ac.uk/people/simon-hiscock. The Welsh ragwort Senecio cambrensis is the only truly endemic plant of Wales.
