  PhD in Chemical Ecology
  Dr S Campbell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In response to the near-universal threat of being consumed by insect herbivores, plants have evolved a sophisticated arsenal of chemical defences.
  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.
  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.
  PhD in the Evolutionary Ecology of Mating Systems
  Dr S Campbell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mating and breeding systems govern a wide range of evolutionary processes in plants and animals, including gene flow, genetic variation, and the strength of natural selection.
  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.
  How does clubroot obtain nutrients from its living plant host?
  Dr S A Rolfe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Clubroot is an important pathogen of Brassica crops. The disease is found throughout the world and causes severe economic losses.
  PhD in Palynology
  Prof C H Wellman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Professor Charles Wellman supervises self-funded Ph.D. research projects in Palynology hosted by the Centre for Palynology. These can encompass taxonomic, biostratigraphical or palaeoenvironmental (palynofacies) analysis.
  PhD in Plant Environmental Physiology
  Prof C P Osborne
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We invite applications for a PhD in the area of plant environmental physiology. Our research uses experiments with wild plants and field studies to address a range of questions about the biology of C 4 plants and savanna ecosystems.
  PhD: Improving Photosynthesis
  Prof A Fleming
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Improving photosynthetic efficiency has been identified as one of the few remaining traits for exploitation if we are to achieve the significant increases in crop yield required to feed the projected 9 billion world population by 2050.
  Urban horticulture: assessing the ecosystem service costs and benefits of expansion into UK cities
  Dr J Edmondson, Dr H Croft, Dr S Campbell, Prof V Stovin
Application Deadline: 17 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over half the global population live in urban areas, and in the UK that figure exceeds 80%. Ecosystem service provision (e.g., food production) by urban green infrastructure and biodiversity is therefore increasingly important for quality of life and environmental sustainability.
  Determining the agronomic and environmental impacts of organic products from agricultural and urban waste streams
  Prof D Chadwick, Prof D Jones
Application Deadline: 6 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Whilst many EU countries, e.g.
  Learning from plant cell walls as a path for innovations in food and material sciences
  Dr Y Benitez-Alfonso, Dr C Bosch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The research will dissect the structural factors controlling cell walls and cell communication for two main purposes. to improve the health value of food crops and to design strategies for the valorisation of wasted plant materials.
  Molecular, biochemical and developmental analysis of root traits for low P adaptation in foxtail millet.
  Prof A Baker, Dr S Kepinski
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Phosphorus is an essential macronutrient for plant growth and cannot be replaced by any other element. It is the second most limiting nutrient after N.
  Plant geometry - the biophysical and molecular basis of gravitropism and growth angle control
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr S Kepinski, Prof N Cohen
Application Deadline: 6 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gravitropism is a fundamental process in the control of plant architecture, which ensures that shoots typically grow up and roots down, allowing light interception and gas exchange above ground and water and nutrient uptake below.
  Structural characterisation of cellular mechanisms for the valorisation of water resources
  Dr Y Benitez-Alfonso, Prof A Baker, Dr R Frank
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Phosphorus is essential to all living organisms but limited in its biological active form while at the same time representing a major contaminant in waste water.
