  Plant responses to stress, metabolites for health and fuel from cell walls.
  Prof A Devoto
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Projects are available in the following areas. Stress responses in crops and sustainable biomass production and processing. The project aims at elucidating several aspects of the control of plant defences and to identify environmentally friendly forms of plant protectants, leading to enhanced crop yields.
  From start to finish: roles for the N-end rule pathway of protein degradation in plant development and stress-response
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr D Gibbs
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In order to effectively co-ordinate their growth and development, plants need to be able to respond to changes in their environment, whether it is adapting to the seasons or coping with stresses.
  TempR: Developing reproductive resilience to heat stress in rice.
  Prof Z Wilson, Dr S Heuer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Flower development and seed set is critical for high-yielding crops. Pollen formation is extremely sensitive to temperature stress, resulting in male sterility and seed-set failure.
  PhD in Computer vision: 2D colour images of a single species (rice) undergoing a single stress
  Prof S Metcalfe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Data generated from trait analysis will be used to develop convolutional neural net architectures capable of analysing image sequences of roots or shoots to extract temporal traits associated with environmental stress.
  Cell cycle regulation in Arabidopsis
  Prof L Bogre
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant growth is tightly controlled by environmental factors. We investigate how these stress and growth stimulatory factors regulate plant growth and cell cycle.
  Statistical genetics and genomics of complex traits
  Dr L Leach, Prof Z Luo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A highly motivated student is sought to train as a statistical geneticist working on the dissection of complex trait phenotypes in human, plant and animal populations into their underlying genetic components.
  Photoreceptor regulation of plant development
  Dr S Casson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant growth and development is highly dependent on the light environment. Light provides energy to drive photosynthesis but light quality and quantity is also perceived by photoreceptors, which signal to regulate responses enabling plants to adapt to their environment.
