Applications are invited for a fully-funded three year PhD to commence in October 2020. The PhD will be based in the Faculty of Science and Health, and will be supervised by Dr Federica Ragazzola, Dr Sarah Reynolds and Dr Marianna Cerasuolo.
  Optimizing soil nitrogen in babyleaf salad crops for sustainable crop production
  Dr E J Shaw
Application Deadline: 17 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The use of synthetic nitrogen fertilizers has been responsible for increased food production more than any other input to farming.
  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.
  ‘Cos’ it’s worth it! Investigating how to mitigate ozone damage to salad crops
  Dr K Ashworth
Application Deadline: 17 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ground-level ozone is a powerful oxidant that causes severe damage to plant cells. In fast-growing leafy salad crops, the first symptom is often visible injury (discolouration or spotting of leaves) which can be difficult to distinguish from signs of nutrient deficiency.
  iPotato: Using smart technologies to spot internal defects in potato
  Dr M McAinsh
Application Deadline: 20 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Damaged crops cost the UK potato industry over £200 per hectare. Although disease contributes to crop losses, internal tuber defects that are undetectable from the outside (e.g.
  Optimizing yield and flavour consistency of rocket greens
  Dr M Lundgren
Application Deadline: 17 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Perennial wall rocket (Diplotaxis tenuifolia; Brassicaceae) is becoming an increasingly important food crop for its high nutrient content, ease of use in ready-made salads, and environmentally friendly perennial life history strategy.
  Roots to resilience: climate-proofing crop yields within future salad production
  Prof I Dodd
Application Deadline: 17 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change threatens UK lettuce production by decreasing rainfall and increasing plant water loss. Lettuce plants are initially raised in small peat blocks in a nursery, then transplanted into the fields.
  “Talking” trees and the ecology of underground fungal super-highways
  Prof D Johnson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Introduction. Recent exciting discoveries have shown that plants respond to herbivore-induced signals from neighbours via underground fungal networks1-3.
  Strategies for Increasing Crop Stress Tolerance
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Dr G Johnson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Humanity is facing a growing food crisis – the “perfect storm” of growing world populations and changing climates mean we urgently need to increase crop productivity, including by increasing environmental stress tolerance.
