  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.
  Characterising the effect of root secretions in vertical farming systems
  Prof C S Grierson, Prof RP Evershed
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

Humanity must increase food production by 70% to feed 10 billion people and, according to the UN, more than 5 billion people could suffer water shortages by 2050 due to climate change.
  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

Despite comprising a small component of sunlight, UV-B wavelengths (280-315 nm) regulate a diverse array of regulatory processes in plants, including growth, metabolite content and resistance to pests and diseases.
  Identifying mechanisms for cell division plane orientation in plants
  Dr J Harrison, Dr T Gorochowski
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Summary. Plant shape is a primary determinant of productivity and yield because it affects light interception and photosynthesis.
  Intercepting CLAVATA receptor-like kinase function to engineer ear size in wheat
  Dr J Harrison, Prof K J Edwards
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Summary. Ensuring continuous global food security will be a major challenge of the 21st century, and wheat contributes approximately 20% of the total calories consumed by humans (FAO, 2017).
  Re-engineering Golgi dynamics in plants
  Dr I Sparkes, Prof D J Stephens
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The growing global population requires the development of novel strategies to sustainably increase food production. Organelle movement is dynamic and linked to changes in cell size, plant biomass and in response to factors which affect food production such as pathogens (Perico and Sparkes, New Phytol.
