  Accelerating disease resistance breeding for diploid potato germplasm improvement (JONESS20CASE)
  Prof J Jones
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pests and diseases reduce crop yields, requiring agrichemical sprays. We aim to replace agrichemicals with genetic resistance for pest and disease control.
  Identifying global regulators of effector gene expression in the rice blast fungus (TALBOTS20DTP)
  Prof N Talbot
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Magnaporthe oryzae is the causal agent of rice blast, one of the most serious diseases affecting rice cultivation around the world.
  TurboID-charging discovery of plant pathogen virulence and host defense mechanisms (JONESS20DTP)
  Prof J Jones
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant pathogens cause disease and reduce crop yields, secreting "effector" proteins that target host. proteins and suppress immunity.
  Reconstructing microbial genomes from environmental samples and their impact ongreenhouse gases (HILDEBRANDQ20DTP1)
  Dr F Hildebrand
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for a highly motivated student, interested in Bioinformatics (metagenomics), global warming, and metabolism-centric interpretation of ecosystems.
  Can improved genetic understanding of grain weight help feed the world? (UAUYJ20DTP)
  Dr C Uauy
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Wheat provides 20% of the calories and protein consumed by humans. The world population will reach 9 billion by 2050, which requires food production to more than double.
  Understanding and predicting the effects of climate change on European yields of oilseed rape (PENFIELDJ20DTP)
  Dr S Penfield
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change is now widely understood to be impacting food supplies. Ensuring future food security will require understanding how climate change will affect crop yields in different agricultural systems and the design of appropriate measures for adaptation.
  Fruit morphogenetics for seed-size control (OSTERGAARDJ20DTP)
  Prof L Ostergaard
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Flowering plants evolved during the Cretaceous Period >100 million years ago and quickly colonised terrestrial habitats. A major reason for their success was the formation and diversification of fruits that protect and nurture the developing seeds.
  Post-Translational Modifications Orchestrate Organ Symmetry (MOUBAYIDINJ20DTP)
  Dr L Moubayidin
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

A major challenge during morphogenesis includes the establishment of symmetry types, such as radial and bilateral symmetry. a developmental commitment which greatly impacts on organ function.
  To divide or not? The importance of division to hair formation in plants. (MARTINJ20DTP)
  Prof C Martin
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Multi-cellular hairs (trichomes) are important chemical factories in plants (producing flavours and fragrances) and provide them with protection against biotic and abiotic stresses.
  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.
