PhD Type

Link to group webpage. http://users.ox.ac.uk/~dops0547/. Chloroplasts are responsible for photosynthesis, and are the organelles that define plants [1].
  Do plants always have to behave that way? Understanding the evolution of root behaviour and its effects on fitness in flowering plants on Mount Etna, Sicily
  Dr J Bridle, Prof C S Grierson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

A fundamental issue in biology is understanding how.
  Comparative genomics, speciation and sustainable food security
  Dr V Savolainen
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Supervisor. Professor Vincent Savolainen, Imperial College London. https://www.imperial.ac.uk/people/v.savolainen. CASE partner. National Botanic Garden of Wales.
  Floral Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) signalling in response to air pollution and climate change
  Dr F Hayes, Dr K Ashworth
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Up to 88% of flowering plant species depend on insect pollinators. Although flowers and their visual cues are known to be important for pollinators, more recently it has been shown that VOCs are also important signals at distances of.
  China Scholarship Council: Developmental role of jasmonate in barley
  Dr S McKim, Dr J Bos
Application Deadline: 15 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most of our food calories come from cereal grain. The development of cereal plants strongly influences the amount of harvested grain or its yield.
  Biogenesis of chloroplasts and development of leaves under light control
  Dr E Lopez-Juez
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research in our lab addresses two of the fundamental biogenesis processes that make plants essential for humanity. the development of leaves and the biogenesis of chloroplasts in leaf cells.
  EASTBIO: Genetic characterisation and mathematical modelling of speed-breeding plasticity in barley.
  Prof W Powell, Prof K Halliday
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

With changes in population demographics, urbanisation and the declared climate emergency in Scotland there is a need to use resources more sustainably.
  Dissecting seed genetic networks through the evolution of plant life-cycle transitions
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr A.R.G Plackett, Dr J C Coates
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Seeds are a critical plant product for human agriculture, but are in fact a relatively recent evolutionary innovation in a single plant lineage (the seed-bearing plants), arising from an ancestral spore-based reproductive mechanism still found in surviving seedless plant groups (mosses, liverworts, ferns etc.).
  Understanding signalling networks underpinning key developmental processes during plant evolution
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr J C Coates
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants first appeared on land almost half a billion years ago. All land plants likely evolved from a single aquatic green algal ancestor.
  MSc by Research Programme: Jasmonate control of barley development
  Dr S McKim
Application Deadline: 16 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This course allows you to work alongside our world renowned experts from the School of Life Sciences and gain a ’real research’ experience.

  Research Group: Institute of Molecular Plant Sciences
  Dr W J Goodrich, Dr C Kidner
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We identified a basic helix loop helix transcription factor (called ZOU) which is specifically expressed in the endosperm of seed in flowering plants.

  Hormonal control of reproductive architecture in bread wheat
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr T.A. Bennett, Dr S Kepinski
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

With Dr Andrea Harper, University of York. Key to the reproductive success of flowering plants is the production of appropriate numbers of fruit and seed in space and time (reproductive architecture).
  Making climate change work for crop yield potential
  Dr L Dixon, Dr T.A. Bennett, Prof B H Davies
Application Deadline: 15 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project summary. We know temperature affects how plants grow but we do not understand the effects of temperature fluctuations, particularly those that are occurring outside the classic seasonal norm.
  The impacts of climate change on pollinator-plant interactions
  Dr R Whitlock, Dr K L Evans, Dr C García
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change has pervasive impacts on biological diversity, determining species persistence, geographical distributions, trait expression and genetic composition.
