Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Milk is a rich source of protein, calcium, iodine, magnesium and manganese, and is seen as a key mechanism via which health and nutrition can be improved in many countries, developed and developing alike.
  PhD in cellular and structural biology - Elucidating infection at the plant-microbe interphase to define targets for crop breeding
  Dr C Voigt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Achieving food security is one of the most important global challenges. Crop production and yield has been increasingly threatened by plant pathogens in a rapidly changing environment.
  FoodBioSystems DTP - Reducing seed loss and waste in umbelliferous crops
  Dr S Kourmpetli, Dr L Bell
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Umbelliferae species flower and set seed over a period of about 6 weeks depending on weather conditions.
  FoodBioSystems DTP - Deep learning based phenotyping of crop seed banks and herbaria
  Dr J Doonan, Dr L Tang, Dr CL Lu, Dr D Thorogood
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Biodiversity underpins long term sustainability of both ecosystems and agriculture. The study of biodiversity, as represented by Herbaria, is one of the oldest branches of biology stretching back at least 400 years.
  FoodBioSystems DTP - Genetics of root vigour in tomato
  Dr A Thompson, Prof J Doonan, Dr Z Kevei, Dr F Mohareb
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Crop root systems provide a new focus for breeding varieties with greater sustainability and resilience; roots function to capture nutrient and soil resources, and provide anchorage and resistance to multiple soil-borne diseases, they also sequester carbon into the soil profile.
  Local gene drives for mosquitoes
  Dr M Anderson, Dr R Noad, Prof L Alphey
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD studentship funded by The Pirbright Institute is available to highly motivated students interested in genetic control of mosquitoes.
  Understanding the importance of the PI3K pathway in modulating influenza virus replication in chickens and ducks
  Dr H Shelton, Dr S Dunham
Application Deadline: 9 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Avian influenza virus (AIV) is a pathogen that causes significant economic and welfare issues for the poultry industry. In addition, there is the additional concern that avian influenza strains may be able to cross the species barrier and infect humans.
