  Establishment of germline-specific DNA methylation in plants (FENGJ20DTP)
  Dr X Feng
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our recent work demonstrated distinctive DNA methylation occurs at hundreds of genes across the entire male germline in plants. This germline-specific methylation is catalysed by a ubiquitous methylation pathway, and regulates meiosis by controlling gene expression and splicing.
  How do plants interpret and respond to their complex and fluctuating environment? (DODDJ20DTP)
  Dr A Dodd
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a NRPDTP funded studentship to investigate how plants combine (integrate) multiple environmental cues to regulate a single signalling pathway required for environmental adaptation of photosynthesis.
  Mechanisms Controlling Plant Cell Polarity and Growth (COENJ20DTP)
  Prof E Coen
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cell polarity is fundamental for growth and division in plants. The BASL protein is localised to one end of stomatal precursors and plays a critical role in asymmetric division and stomatal spacing.
  Root legume symbioses signalling (CHARPENTIERJ20DTP)
  Dr M Charpentier
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) are major macronutrients for plant productivity. They are essentials for all aspect of plant growth, and they help converting solar radiation into carbohydrates that drive crop yields.
  Natural selection in action: molecular evolution of resistance to anti-microbials (BROWNJ20DTP)
  Prof J Brown
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Evolution of resistance to drugs and pesticides is a problem of great practical importance and is also one of the clearest demonstrations of natural selection in action.
  A helping hand: signal transduction in plant immunity (BANFIELDJ20DTP)
  Prof M Banfield
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant diseases are a continuous threat to food production and a major constraint on achieving global food security. One approach to restricting plant diseases is to understand how plant immune receptors recognise the presence of pathogens and transduce signals that lead to disease resistance.
  Sex pheromone metabolism in Coccoidea (PATRONE20DTP1)
  Dr N Patron
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sex pheromones are substances secreted by animals that elicit powerful attractant effects and mating stimuli on individuals of the same species.
  Supercharging photosynthesis to feed the world (HALLE20DTP2)
  Prof A Hall
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

To feed an ever-increasing population we must produce more of the crops that sustain us. Wheat provides 20% of the total calories consumed worldwide and we need to increase our productivity to avoid food shortages.
  Applying machine learning and artificial intelligence to decode complex patterns of DNA methylation (HALLE20DTP1)
  Prof A Hall
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

In plants DNA methylation plays an important role in regulating gene expression. DNA methylation can also act as a “soft mutation” creating phenotypic variation.
  Assembly of nitrous oxide reductase, a key enzyme in climate change (LEBRUNU20DTP1)
  Prof N Le Brun, Dr J Balk
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nitrous oxide (N2O) is a greenhouse gas with a ~300 fold greater global warming potential than CO2 and an ability to deplete stratospheric ozone.
