  PhD in Engineering - Bioactive hydrogels for stem cell engineering
  Prof M Salmeron-Sanchez, Prof M Dalby, Prof A Miller
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cells need three dimensional environments to grow and to differentiate, and thus efforts have been made to engineer materials that can display adhesion ligands, growth factors and that have controlled properties.
  Engineering tolerance to Botrytis in soft fruit crops
  Dr C Nellist, Dr H Cockerton, Prof M Dickinson, Dr T P Robbins
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

REFERENCE. CTP_FCR_2020_11. Supervisors. Dr Charlotte Nellist (NIAB EMR), Dr Helen Cockerton (NIAB EMR), Prof Matthew Dickinson (University of Nottingham), and Dr Tim Robbins (University of Nottingham).
  Intelligent Dynamic Flood Response and Recovery Strategy (iD-FRe2S) PhD
  Prof M Rivas Casado, Dr Y Bajón Fernández
Application Deadline: 15 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Flood recovery response in urban areas depends on the type of flood (e.g., pluvial, fluvial, groundwater) and the type of water (i.e., clean, grey or black water) affecting the area.
  Investigating the effects of grassland sward composition (monoculture to multispecies) on soil nutrient cycling and greenhouse gas emissions
  Dr P Murphy, Dr H Sheridan
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited from suitably qualified candidates for a 4-year PhD studentship within a DAFM-funded project, FASTEN (Farm Sustainability Tools for Efficient Nutrient Management).
  FoodBioSystems DTP - A receptor-ligand module that triggers cell death in plants: a killer in disguise
  Dr M Bosch, Dr L J McGuffin, Prof G J Stephens
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Most of our food is a product of plant reproduction with fertility and seed set critical for crop yield and thus food security.
  FoodBioSystems DTP - Identifying beneficial plant-microbial interactions using multi-omic approaches
  Dr M Swain, Dr S Cameron, Dr K Farrar
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Microbes known as endophytes are usually bacteria or fungi, which live within specific plant tissues without causing disease.
  Bioengineering of bacterial CO2-concentrating system for improved photosynthesis
  Prof LN Liu, Dr D Canniffe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The single-cell photosynthetic bacteria, cyanobacteria, account for over 25% of global carbon fixation, thanks for their powerful CO2-concentrating machinery.
  Managing plant diversity and soil-root-biota interactions for improved nutrient efficiency
  Prof O Schmidt, Dr S Tracy, Dr D Wall
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

RESEARCH PROJECT. This exciting, fully funded PhD research project will investigate how to integrate plant diversity, biostimulants and interactions between soil, roots and soil biota into crop and grassland management in order to improve nutrient efficiency.
  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.
