  Biogenesis of chloroplasts and development of leaves under light control
  Dr E Lopez-Juez
Applications accepted all year round
Research in our lab addresses two of the fundamental biogenesis processes that make plants essential for humanity. the development of leaves and the biogenesis of chloroplasts in leaf cells.
  Comparing effects of tree species and genetic diversity on ecosystem functioning and services
  Prof J Koricheva
Applications accepted all year round
The majority of forests in Europe are managed and underwent considerable changes in tree species richness, species composition and genetic diversity over the last few centuries.
  Examining the interactions between plant-feeding insects and symbiotic fungi
  Prof A Gange
Applications accepted all year round
“Plants are not discrete entities, but instead are mergers of fungal cells with plant tissues”. This statement implies that every living plant has fungi living within the roots and shoots.
  The biosynthesis, regulation and engineering of high value industrial and nutritional isoprenoids
  Prof P Fraser, Dr G Enfissi
Applications accepted all year round
Plant and microbial secondary metabolites can confer important agronomic traits, they are often essential components of the human diet, and in some cases have been used as phytomedicines, industrial raw materials and high-value fine chemicals.
  Plant responses to stress, metabolites for health and fuel from cell walls.
  Prof A Devoto
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Cell cycle regulation in Arabidopsis
  Prof L Bogre
Applications accepted all year round
Plant growth is tightly controlled by environmental factors. We investigate how these stress and growth stimulatory factors regulate plant growth and cell cycle.
  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
Pathogens secrete small proteins called effectors or virulence factors which are important for the successful invasion of the host.
  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
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).
  Transcription factors mediating light input to the Arabidopsis circadian clock
  Dr P Devlin
Applications accepted all year round
The circadian clock is tightly tied to the light environment. Transcriptional feedback loops are able to generate a self-sustaining rhythm of approximately 24 hours which impinges on almost every aspect of physiology in higher organisms.
