  MSc by Research Programme: Development of tools suited for the in vivo identification and study of protein Complexes in Phytophthora capsici, required for infection.
  Dr E Huitema
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.
  FoodBioSystems DTP - Integrating plant and animal responses to parasite infection under climate change
  Prof E Morgan, Dr S Stergiadis, Dr K Theodoridou
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Climate change is causing increased unpredictability of parasitic disease in animals, while developing drug resistance limits options for control.
  Characterisation and chemical inhibition of a novel regulatory module controlling chloroplast protein translation
  Dr D Gibbs
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4 year BBSRC-CASE studentship, funded through the Midlands Integrative Biology Training Partnership (MIBTP), will be supervised by Dr Daniel Gibbs (University of Birmingham) in association with Dr Christian Noble (Syngenta).
  Transcriptional battles in plant-pathogen interactions: understanding and re-wiring gene regulatory networks to enhance disease resistance
  Prof K Denby, Prof I A Graham
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The severity of plant disease is determined by a battle between pathogen virulence and host plant immunity – understanding this relationship is key to developing sustainable methods of pathogen control.
  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).
  Build and destroy: investigating targeted protein degradation in plant development and stress-response
  Dr D Gibbs
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In order to effectively co-ordinate their growth and development, plants need to be able to respond to changes in their environment, whether it is adapting to the seasons or coping with stresses.
  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.
  Comparative studies of wound and cancer inflammation in plants and animals
  Prof P B Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

All organisms need to be able to repair wounds. A key aspect of this is combating the potential for infection when barrier layers are breached by tissue damage.
  Examining the interactions between plant-feeding insects and symbiotic fungi
  Prof A Gange
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

“Plants are not discrete entities, but instead are mergers of fungal cells with plant tissues”. This statement implies that every living plant has fungi living within the roots and shoots.
  Biodiversity conservation ex situ or in situ with a focus on genetic diversity.
  Dr N Maxted
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Field studies, ecogeography, geographic information systems and estimation of patterns of genetic diversity, IUCN taxonomic and genetic threat assessment will help elucidate conservation strategies and taxonomic clarity of critically endanged plant species.
  Identifying the evolutionary origins of the MADS-box floral quartet mechanism in seedless vascular plants
  Dr A.R.G Plackett, Dr J C Coates
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite its commonplace occurrence in today’s environment, the reproduction of plants via flowers and seeds is a recent evolutionary innovation arising from an ancestral seedless reproductive system similar to that still found in a subset of today’s plants (e.g.
  FoodBioSystems DTP - The effect of fruit and vegetable intake on health outcomes: does an apple aday still keep the doctor away?
  Prof J Woodside, Prof J Lovegrove, Dr A Nugent, Dr B Green
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Although increased fruit and vegetable intake has been associated with reduced risk of chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, this has largely been based on observational evidence, and there are a number of uncertainties regarding these observed links.
