Memory in vegetation response to environmental fluctuations (Advert Reference: RDF22/EE/GES/LIU)

Plants live in and respond to fluctuating environments around them. Importantly, many plant responses are not only driven by current environmental conditions, but show “memory” to conditions in the past. Read more

Uncovering the hidden effects of an emerging environmental contaminant on plant health

Perfluoroalkyl and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) are a family of human made chemicals used by industry as part of stain- and water-resistant fabrics, cleaning products, paints, fire-fighting foams and in cookware. Read more

Developing methods to quantify the potential for greenhouse gas removal using bioenergy - carbon capture and storage to speed up the establishment and uptake of perennial Bio-energy crops.

Background. Crop yield and soil carbon turnover models are parameterized by using data from carefully controlled and measured field and lab experiments and when used spatially in predictive mode are driven by existing spatial data sets of weather, climate, soil types and land use at various scales.

Right place, right time: Targeted auxin delivery to improve tree cutting propagation

The Government has set a target to plant 10,000 hectares of trees per year in England by 2025. However producing enough trees to meet this demand requires faster propagation techniques. Read more

PhD topic / PhD position: Characterization of components of cytokinin metabolism involved in shoot regeneration

Supervisor: Markéta Pernisová. Annotation: Plants, unlike animals, possess a unique developmental plasticity that enables them to develop new organs throughout their entire life. Read more

The genomics of rapid adaptation in plants

*** Fully funded 3.5 year PhD position ***. Life on Earth is facing unprecedented challenges as a result of climate change. Understanding how organisms rapidly adapt to their environment is essential in not only reducing the number of species that will go extinct, but also in safeguarding future food production.

Characterization of the molecular crosstalk regulating xylem differentiation by environmental signals and its function in photosynthesis optimisation

The plant vascular system is composed by two conductive tissues, the xylem and the phloem. Xylem conducts water and minerals from the roots and provides mechanical support to the plant due to thick secondary cell walls, rich on lignin and cellulose. Read more
