  Characterisation of Enset functional traits, growth dynamics and optimal management practices to improve Enset productivity and resilience in Ethiopia
  Dr L Büchi
Application Deadline: 10 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The orphan crop Enset (Ensete ventricosum), a relative of banana (Musa sp.), is the main staple in southern Ethiopia where it is cultivated for its corm and pseudostem.
  Impact and Adoption of Quality Protein Maize in Ethiopia
  Dr A Shee
Application Deadline: 10 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ethiopia is one of the most food-insecure countries in Africa where about 7 million school-age children are living in food-insecure parts of the country (Smith, 2013).
  Innovative fertiliser solutions to combat Striga on smallholder sorghum farms in Africa
  Dr J Rodenburg
Application Deadline: 10 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sorghum is a staple food and fodder crop grown by millions of resource-poor smallholders in Africa. It has a broad environmental adaptation due to its salt, drought and heat tolerance, and is therefore regarded a climate-smart crop of strategic importance for future food security.
  Functional analysis of fungal effector proteins in the barley/wheat powdery mildew plant-pathogen interactions.
  Dr L Bindschedler, Prof A Devoto
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pathogens secrete small proteins called effectors or virulence factors which are important for the successful invasion of the host.
  Crop seed quality refinement with beneficial microbes
  Prof G Leubner, Dr T Steinbrecher
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Royal Holloway University of London’s (RHUL) Seed Science and Technology Group lead by Prof Gerhard Leubner is focused on improving crop seed quality and seedling performance by innovative seed refinement technologies.
  Signalling and transcriptional pathways regulating memory B cell formation, persistence and function
  Dr V Tybulewicz
Application Deadline: 12 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4-year PhD studentship is offered in Dr Victor Tybulewicz’s Group based at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick). Immunological memory is a hallmark of the mammalian adaptive immune response, resulting in improved protection to re-infection by a pathogen.
  Understanding influenza-induced long-term changes to lung immunity
  Dr A Wack
Application Deadline: 12 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4-year PhD studentship is offered in Dr Andreas Wack’s Group based at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick). The Wack lab is interested in influenza virus infection, a disease of major public health impact whose severity ranges from mild cold-like symptoms to necessity of hospitalisation and death.
  Regulation of adult brain stem cells by Sonic Hedgehog
  Dr F Guillemot
Application Deadline: 12 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4-year PhD studentship is offered in Dr Francois Guillemot’s Group based at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick). The brain is a highly plastic organ that uses a variety of mechanisms to adapt its activity to the environment and allow the organism to navigate a changing world.
  Plant responses to stress, metabolites for health and fuel from cell walls.
  Prof A Devoto
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Projects are available in the following areas. Stress responses in crops and sustainable biomass production and processing. The project aims at elucidating several aspects of the control of plant defences and to identify environmentally friendly forms of plant protectants, leading to enhanced crop yields.
  Seed dormancy and germination: understanding the molecular basis to improve seed quality and seedling performance of horticultural and agricultural crops
  Prof G Leubner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant seeds and fruits are at the beginning and the end of most important food supply chains that are central to human existence (food security).
