  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 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.
  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.
  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 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.
  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.
  FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Clove Production, Crop Diversity and Biodiversity
  Prof T Caro
Application Deadline: 17 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT. Cloves are central to Pemba Island, Tanzania, sometimes grown as a monoculture, but also with native and introduced species.
  FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Function and development of superhydrophilic slippery plant surfaces
  Dr U Bauer
Application Deadline: 17 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT. The trapping surfaces of carnivorous pitcher plants are unusually wettable and turn extremely slippery for insects when wet.
  FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: How can farming methods help to mitigate climate change?
  Dr G Barker
Application Deadline: 17 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT. Global temperatures are likely to increase by 1.5°C compared to pre-industrial levels by 2030-2052.
  FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Identifying DNA sequences in crops with the potential to reduce soil erosion
  Prof C S Grierson
Application Deadline: 17 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT. We wish to understand how plants help hold roots and soil together. This is important because crops have major effects on soil erosion rates and the fertility of land in cultivation.
  FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Light control of leaf senescence
  Prof K Franklin
Application Deadline: 17 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT. Leaf senescence reduces the quality and postharvest shelf life of crops. Delaying this process is therefore a key objective for reducing waste in the food chain.
  FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Map the gap – making palm oil more sustainable by mapping yield gaps across tropical landscapes
  Dr T Jucker
Application Deadline: 17 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT. When it comes to producing vegetable oil, oil palm is king. Up to 10 times more productive than rival crops, today oil palm accounts for one third of the global supply of fats and oils.
  FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Re-engineering peroxisome movement in plants
  Dr I Sparkes
Application Deadline: 17 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT. The growing global population requires the development of novel strategies to sustainably increase food production.
