  Developing and testing innovative approaches to support seaweed cultivation in the UK
  Dr D Smale, Dr A Jensen
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Seaweed cultivation is one of the fastest growing components of global agriculture, with seaweed production contributing to a range of industries including pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, animal feed, fertilizer, biofuels and human food.
  Phytoplankton nutrient sensing mechanisms: key to thriving in coastal ecosystems?
  Dr K Helliwell, Dr J Robidart, Prof C Moore, Dr A Rees
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Marine phytoplankton play vital roles in regulating the global climate, contributing almost half of net primary production.
  PhD in Crop Domestication and Improvement
  Prof C P Osborne
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Professor Colin Osborne, Department of Animal and Plant Sciences, University of Sheffield, Sheffield, UK. We invite applications for a PhD in the area of crop domestication and improvement.
  PhD in Plants and Microbes: crop production and protection, the interaction between plants and other plants, pests and pathogens, and soils, and the interactions of ecosystems with global change
  Dr C Voigt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants underpin life on Earth. In Sheffield, world leading plant research is undertaken across all scales from the molecular level through to the leaf and root, whole plant and ecosystem.
  Plant-microbial interactions: legume-rhizobial cover crops under drought and climate change
  Prof D Cameron, Dr E Harrison, Prof J Gray, Dr C Chater
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

To develop sustainable agriculture under climate change we need to tackle CO2 emissions and drought stress. Legume-rhizobial cover crops (leys) enhance carbon and nitrogen in soils, reducing vulnerability to drought and water pollution.
  Understanding urban trees: form, function and vulnerability
  Dr J Edmondson, Dr H Croft, Prof C P Osborne, Dr N McHugh
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

More than half the global population already live in urban areas and that figure will rise to 66% by 2020. Ecosystem service provision in urban areas is therefore becoming increasingly important for people’s quality of life and the wider environment, to which urban trees make a disproportionate contribution.
  *EASTBIO* Regulation of plant cell-to-cell communication
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr J Tilsner
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BBSRC Thematic Group. Frontier Bioscience. Background. Plasmodesmata are membrane-lined cytoplasmic channels which are of fundamental importance to plant development, stress responses and defence against pathogens.
  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.
  Adventures in carbon neutral farming: mitigating potent greenhouse gas emissions from soils with rock dust
  Prof D Beerling, Dr U Skiba, Dr M Val Martin, Dr D Epihov
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Rationale and importance. As Greta Thunberg reminds us, the world faces a climate emergency and addressing global climate change is one of the greatest and most urgent challenges facing humanity.
  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.
