  “Talking” trees and the ecology of underground fungal super-highways
  Prof D Johnson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Introduction. Recent exciting discoveries have shown that plants respond to herbivore-induced signals from neighbours via underground fungal networks1-3.
  Strategies for Increasing Crop Stress Tolerance
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Dr G Johnson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Humanity is facing a growing food crisis – the “perfect storm” of growing world populations and changing climates mean we urgently need to increase crop productivity, including by increasing environmental stress tolerance.
  Nanoparticle conjugates for agricultural disease detection and diagnosis
  Dr L Wong, Prof J Micklefield
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Infectious diseases in plant crops present a significant socioeconomic burden globally, as they compromise the safety and reliability of food supply, as well as other agricultural products.
  Non-invasive imaging of the pathophysiology of early systemic sclerosis; fibrosis and oxygenation
  Dr A Murray, Prof G Parker, Prof A Herrick, Dr M Dickinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Systemic sclerosis (SSc) is a microvascular autoimmune disease that causes lack of blood flow and scarring and thickening of skin and tissues within internal organs.
  Investigation of a Novel Regulator of Plant Yield and Fitness in Plants
  Dr P Gallois, Dr G Johnson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Autophagy is an incredibly important and highly conserved process across eukaryotes and involves the regulated destruction of unnecessary or damaged components within the cell.
  Understanding cellulose synthesis in plants
  Prof S Turner, Prof S High
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is clear that there is now enormous pressure to develop much better replacements for plastics derived from fossil fuels. One possibility is to develop novel plastics based on polymers from plants.
  Development and Evolution of Shapes: Investigating the genetic pathways governing the leaf shape in Arabidopsis
  Dr M Kim, Prof S Turner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The shapes and sizes of organisms and organs are scrupulously conserved within a species. What regulates the shapes and sizes of organisms and their lateral organs are intriguing and fundamental questions in Biology.
