  Discovering molecular mechanisms regulating nitrogen demand signalling and nitrogen use efficiency in plants
  Dr N Imin
Applications accepted all year round

Nitrogen (N) is a key determinant of crop productivity. In agriculture, the demand for nitrogen (N) fertilisers to produce food, fibre, and feed from crops and pastures is increasing dramatically.
  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.
  Finding the right fungal friends: determining how plant defences against against insect herbivores are impacted by different mycorrhizal fungal communities.
  Dr A Frew
Applications accepted all year round
