  Methods for quantitative genetic analyses in autotetraploids
  Prof Z Luo
Applications accepted all year round
Methods for quantitative genetic analysis have been well established in almost all important diploid plants and animal including humans, and have served as essential tools for dissecting the genetic architectures underlying agronomically, evolutionarily and medically interesting quantitative and complex traits.
  Genetic Analysis of Complex Traits in Autotetraploid Crops including Potato
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr L Leach, Prof Z Luo
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Autopolyploidy is a characteristic shared by many important crops including potato, coffee, leek, sugarcane, alfalfa and some economically important aquaculture animals, including Atlantic salmon and trout.
  How will global crop production develop under climate change? Improving our predictive capability.
  Dr T Pugh, Prof M Tausz
Applications accepted all year round
Crop yields are highly sensitive to climate, with even relatively moderate climate change, such as that aimed for by the Paris agreement, placing future food security in doubt (Pugh et al., 2016).
  Biodiversity conservation ex situ or in situ with a focus on genetic diversity.
  Dr N Maxted
Applications accepted all year round
Field studies, ecogeography, geographic information systems and estimation of patterns of genetic diversity, IUCN taxonomic and genetic threat assessment will help elucidate conservation strategies and taxonomic clarity of critically endanged plant species.
  Statistical genetics and genomics of complex traits
  Dr L Leach, Prof Z Luo
Applications accepted all year round
A highly motivated student is sought to train as a statistical geneticist working on the dissection of complex trait phenotypes in human, plant and animal populations into their underlying genetic components.
