Stress responses in crops and sustainable production of chemicals and biomass

The project aims at elucidating several aspects of the control of plant defences and to identify environmentally friendly forms of plant protectants and phytopharmaceuticals, leading to enhanced crop yields and solutions for animals and human health. Read more

WR DTP fully-funded project: Conservation of light-dependent immunity pathways in greenhouse crops

This project is ideal for either (i) a student with a biology background with some programming experience and an interest in modelling or (ii) a student with a maths, physics or computer science background who is interested in learning how to perform plant biology experiments. Read more

Engineering more water-use efficient crops: functional genomics of CO2 fixation during Crassulacean acid metabolism

The world is getting hotter and drier due to climate change, and the human population is growing rapidly to the extent that it has been predicted that we will need to increase crop yields by 50 - 70 % by 2050 in order to feed the predicted 9 - 10 billion people. Read more

Conservation genomics of bumble bees

Project Highlights. Your research will be high impact science geared towards the conservation of bumble bees - highly important pollinators of both wild flowers and important crops. Read more

Building a pyrenoid-based CO2-concentrating mechanism in higher plants

  Research Group: Institute of Molecular Plant Sciences
Photosynthesis is one of the key engineering targets for synthetic biologists to enhance the yield potential of globally important crops. Read more

Dining out in the Anthropocene: the impact non-native Himalayan Balsam on bee Microbiome, health and pollinator ecosystems (OP2244)

Honeybees (Apis mellifera) play a vital role in pollination of crops and wildflowers. They are “generalists” who visit a wide range of flowers, basing their choice on quality of reward (nectar, pollen) and of quantity of flowers available. Read more

How does the metabolic status of the plant regulate embryo development and seed viability?

This project will discover how carbohydrate availability regulates embryo development and seed viability in Arabidopsis. Seed growth depends on the interplay between developmental/genetic programmes and carbohydrate supply from the maternal plant. Read more

PhD in the genomics of rapid adaptation in plants

We invite applications for a PhD in the area of genomics and rapid adaptation in plants. Our research combines cutting-edge genomic techniques, comparative analyses and experimental approaches to understand how organisms adapt to their environment. Read more
