  Developing new UAV-based survey approaches for monitoring tree and soil health indices in SE Asian oil palm plantations
  Dr P Scholefield, Dr R Ewers, Mr J Moat, Dr N McNamara
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Poor tree health in Oil Palm plantations is a primary cause of low yield, typically dealt with by applying high volumes of fertilizers, pesticides, fungicides and herbicides.
  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.
  China Scholarship Council: The molecular cell biology of Plant-Phytophthora interactions
  Prof P Birch, Dr P Boevink
Application Deadline: 15 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The School of Life Sciences at the University of Dundee, joint with the China Scholarship Council (CSC), is proud to be able to offer a scholarship programme for postgraduate research students.
  Understanding protein impact on soft wheat flour functionality: identification of protein markers for soft wheat breeding.
  Dr P Tosi, Prof D O'Sullivan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is a fantastic opportunity to work at pre-breeding of soft wheat, specifically targeting its processing quality for the bakery sector.

  Developing programmable DNA-guided endonucleases for genome engineering
  Prof M Mahfouz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacterial and archaeal species are rich with proteins used for DNA processing or host defense. We aim to engineer some of these proteins and test their ability to generate double strand breaks in a programmed and site-specific fashion.
  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.
  EASTBIO: Wheat phenotyping using hyper-spectral imaging and machine learning
  Dr S Hoad, Dr M Coffey
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this EASTBIO studentship is to advance phenotyping in wheat using hyper-spectral sensing data and machine learning. SRUC is at the leading edge in applying spectral sensing in agriculture e.g.
  Nanoparticle conjugates for agricultural disease detection and diagnosis
  Dr L Wong, Prof J Micklefield
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Infectious diseases in plant crops present a significant socioeconomic burden globally, as they compromise the safety and reliability of food supply, as well as other agricultural products.
  Investigating the use of fungal endophytes to induce resistance to honey fungus (Armillaria)
  Prof G Foster, Dr A Bailey, Dr M Cromey, Dr J Drakulic
Application Deadline: 15 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

An exciting PhD opportunity is available to work on Armillaria root rot (honey fungus), supervised jointly between the University of Bristol and the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS).
  Evolution and biochemistry of photosynthesis - electron transfer reactions, renewable energy production, biotechnology, and chloroplast genomes
  Prof C J Howe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The common theme of our work is the biochemistry and evolution of photosynthesis.
  Predicting tuber dry matter concentration in potato
  Dr M Stalham, Prof H Griffiths
Application Deadline: 14 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisors. Dr Mark Stalham (NIAB CUF), Prof. Howard Griffiths (University of Cambridge). The dry matter concentration of potato tubers is an important quality attribute, particularly for the production of crisps and french fries but also for fresh produce.
  How does the ocean influence glacial melt in the Amundsen Sea, Antarctica? (HALLUENV20ARIES)
  Dr R Hall, Prof K Heywood
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. The Amundsen Sea glaciers in West Antarctica are rapidly melting in response to recent climate warming and related changes in ocean circulation, increasing estimates of future sea level rise.
  Faster, greener, and more competitive? How will vegetation alter in a changing Antarctic? (a project from the SENSE Centre for Doctoral Training)
  Dr C Colesie, Prof M Williams
Application Deadline: 19 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The unique Antarctic terrestrial vegetation serves as an early warning system in understanding ecosystem responses to climate change.
  Abundance within species’ ranges: understanding species’ responses to environmental change
  Dr F Schrodt, Prof R Field
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Accelerated climate change and environmental degradation make it necessary to improve our understanding of, and ability to predict, species’ responses to environmental change.
