  Build and destroy: investigating targeted protein degradation in plant development and stress-response
  Dr D Gibbs
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In order to effectively co-ordinate their growth and development, plants need to be able to respond to changes in their environment, whether it is adapting to the seasons or coping with stresses.
  Epigenetic contribution to grafting induced vigour in Solanaceous plants
  Dr M Catoni
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Grafting is a long-standing agronomical method used to improve plants production since more than 4000 years ago, consisting in physically joining two plants together, generally referred as rootstock (part below the ground) and scion (part above the ground).
  How does heterosis affect yield, quality and disease resistance in hybrid wheat?
  Dr P Borrill, Dr M Catoni, Dr C Uauy, Dr N Bird
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Heterosis, or hybrid vigour, is the increased performance of a hybrid relative to the parents. The use of hybrid cultivars in maize and rice have increased the performance of these crops substantially, but the same approach has not yet been widely exploited in wheat breeding.
  Understanding signalling networks underpinning key developmental processes during plant evolution
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr J C Coates
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants first appeared on land almost half a billion years ago. All land plants likely evolved from a single aquatic green algal ancestor.
  Application of nanomaterials in precision agriculture to optimise nitrogen use efficiency and increase global food security
  Dr I Lynch, Dr S Ullah, Dr P Zhang, Mr A Witteveen
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The global agriculture sector is facing a wide spectrum of challenges such as stagnation in crop yields, notoriously low nutrient use efficiency (NUE), poor soil health, shrinking arable land and water availability etc.
