  PhD Studentship in Tropical Ecology. Supra-specific Janzen-Connell effects: insect herbivores responding to plant phylogeny and chemistry in a Papua New Guinea rainforest
  Prof V Novotny, Dr M Volf
Application Deadline: 31 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for an enthusiastic candidate to join a project exploring plant-herbivore interactions, and evolution of host-plant defences in a lowland rainforest in Papua New Guinea.
  Managing ash dieback disease using soil amendments including biochar
  Dr F Rayns
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Coventry University (CU) is inviting applications from suitably qualified graduates for a fully-funded PhD studentship. Ash dieback is an emerging disease that causes leaf loss and crown dieback in affected plants, often leading to tree death.
  Understanding and Improving the Foliar Uptake of Amino Acids
  Dr JM Sanderson
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

PhD Studentship in Amino Acid Chemistry, Durham University (Chemistry Department) and Plant Impact (a division of Croda Europe Ltd).
  Developing programmable DNA-guided endonucleases for genome engineering
  Prof M Mahfouz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacterial and archaeal species are rich with proteins used for DNA processing or host defense. We aim to engineer some of these proteins and test their ability to generate double strand breaks in a programmed and site-specific fashion.
  Molecular Genetics of Durable Disease Resistance in Wheat
  Prof S Krattinger
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The identification of agriculturally important genes in wheat had long been limited by its large genome, which is five times larger than the human genome.
  Search for new regulators of intracellular trafficking in plants
  Dr T Nodzynski, Dr M Zwiewka
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants are the organisms providing oxygen for the biosphere being the fundamental element of food chain, therefore, basic understanding of molecular mechanisms guiding their growth is essential.
  Structure, function and evolution of plant telomere components
  Prof J Fajkus, Prof J Palecek
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Telomeres are terminal, but nevertheless integral parts of chromosomes, and as such they are also formed and function as supramolecular nucleoprotein (chromatin) structures.
  Uncovering conserved nitric oxide/oxygen-dependent regulatory mechanisms of innate immunity in animals and plants
  Dr E Graciet
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

One 4-year Ph.D. position is available in the Department of Biology at Maynooth University (https://www.maynoothuniversity.ie/biology), which offers excellent research conditions with state-of-the-art infrastructure in a highly dynamic and collegial environment.
  Evaluation of natural plant based botanicals as alternative to therapeutic antibiotics
  Dr C Situ
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

It has become widely recognised that antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the biggest health threats that mankind faces encompassing huge health and economic burdens on governments and societies in every region of the globe.
  Identification and characterisation of novel QTLs and genes for dietary fibre in grain of bread wheat
  Dr A Lovegrove, Prof P Shewry
Application Deadline: 30 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD studentship is available to identify and characterise new genes controlling the content of dietary fibre (arabinoxylan) in wheat flour.
