  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.
  The role of species-combination pollination systems in crop production, crop stress responses and fruit/vegetable quality
  Dr S Arnold
Application Deadline: 10 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The production of many key crops involved in nutrition security (especially as a source of vitamins) benefits strongly from insect pollination, e.g.
  Distribution modelling and the management and conservation of European ectomycorrhizal communities
  Dr M Bidartondo, Dr C D L Orme
Application Deadline: 23 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project, the student will develop cutting-edge distributional models of dominant ectomycorrhizal (ECM) fungal species across Europe and establish vital practice and policy recommendations for the monitoring, management and conservation of these ecologically critical organisms.
  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.
  Biogenesis of chloroplasts and development of leaves under light control
  Dr E Lopez-Juez
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Cell cycle regulation in Arabidopsis
  Prof L Bogre
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant growth is tightly controlled by environmental factors. We investigate how these stress and growth stimulatory factors regulate plant growth and cell cycle.
  Comparing effects of tree species and genetic diversity on ecosystem functioning and services
  Prof J Koricheva
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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

Funding Type

PhD Type

“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.
  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.
