  Genetics and molecular basis of insect resistance in forest trees
  Prof J Mackay
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Background. Insect pests pose a rapidly growing threat to the sustainability of forest systems as a result of climate change and globalisation of commerce.
  Oxford Interdisciplinary Bioscience Doctoral Training Partnership
4 Year DPhil/PhD - Oxford Interdisciplinary Bioscience Doctoral Training Partnership. Candidates are invited to apply to the Oxford Interdisciplinary Bioscience Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) programme.
  An integrated study of genetics and silviculture in Continuous Cover Forestry in Britain
  Prof J Mackay
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
SUPERVISORS. Professor John MacKay (University of Oxford), Dr Gary Kerr (Forest Research). -----------------------------------------------------------------------.
  Elucidating the role of the Omp85/BamA-related protein OEP80 in chloroplast β-barrel biogenesis
  Prof P Jarvis
Applications accepted all year round
Chloroplasts belong to a diverse family of plant organelles termed plastids [1]. Chloroplasts are responsible for photosynthesis and many essential biosynthetic functions.
  Functional assignment of Papain-like Cys proteases in plant development and immunity
  Prof R Van der Hoorn
Applications accepted all year round
The rapid and structured disassembly of plant proteomes during germination, senescence and defence are massive proteolytic events that underpin plant development and immunity.
  Genetic basis of extracellular potato blight recognition in wild Solanum sp.
  Prof R Van der Hoorn
Applications accepted all year round
Potato late blight has caused the devastating Irish potato famine in the 1840s and is still an important pathogen in agriculture today.
  Mechanisms controlling the biogenesis and functions of chloroplasts in plants: protein transport and the ubiquitin-proteasome system
  Prof P Jarvis
Applications accepted all year round
Our research is focused on the biogenesis of chloroplasts and other plastids in plants, particularly in relation to the import of nucleus-encoded proteins and the role of the ubiquitin-proteasome system.
  Race structure and pathogenicity mechanisms in Pseudomonas syringae pv. syringae, the causal agent of brown spot of Phaseolus vulgaris (common bean)
  Prof G Preston
Applications accepted all year round
BACKGROUND. Beans provide one of the most important staple sources of dietary protein in many parts of Africa and worldwide, and are an important part of the horticultural export market.
  Studying chloroplast biogenesis in the basal land plant Marchantia polymorpha: Using CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing and forward genetics to assess functional conservation and seek novel components
  Prof P Jarvis, Prof L Dolan
Applications accepted all year round
Chloroplasts are responsible for photosynthesis, and are the organelles that define plants [1]. They evolved as a result of an endosymbiotic relationship between a cyanobacterium and an algal progenitor, in a process that began over a billion years ago.
