  Understanding protein impact on soft wheat flour functionality: identification of protein markers for soft wheat breeding.
  Dr P Tosi, Prof D O'Sullivan
Application Deadline: 28 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Milling wheat is categorised into two commercial classes, soft and hard, according to the milling energy required to produce the flour.
  Mine site restoration and ecosystem development
  Prof M Tibbett
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will include various aspect of minesite rehabilitation including early development of terrestrial ecosystems and the nutritional constraints to ecosystem development (plants and soil biota) using a space-for-time substiution appraoch.
  The nature of mycorrhizal symbioses
  Prof M Tibbett
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will build on recent work highlighting the changing view of the nature of the relationship between plant and fungus in the (near) ubiquitous symbiosis.

  Enhancing botany education in Britain
  Dr J Mitchley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants are a vital element of the biosphere and without plants there is no animal life. An understanding of plant diversity and the ability to identify, name and understand plants in their habitats (field botany) is essential to underpin ecology, conservation and sustainable development sciences.
  Evolutionary Perspectives on Medicinal Plant Use
  Prof J A Hawkins
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project encompasses 1. evolutionary aspects of medicinal plant use and 2. authentication. You will collect DNA sequence data at the level of a whole flora and at the level of a genus.
  Interactions between introduced tree species and native mycorrhizal fungi in the UK
  Dr BJ Pickles
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Mycorrhizal symbioses are one of the most extensive and important biotic interactions in terrestrial ecosystems, typically providing plants with improved access to nutrients in exchange for carbohydrates produced via photosynthesis.
  Investigating the molecular basis of bacterial pathogenicity of invertebrates
  Prof R W Jackson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pseudomonas syringae bacteria are common within the environment and can infect a wide range of plant species. These bacteria employ a diverse arsenal of virulence factors to attack plants.
  The role of insect-plant-fungus interactions in natural and managed systems
  Dr P E Hatcher
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants are attacked both by insects and pathogenic fungi, often at the same time, yet these are often studied by different specialists.
  Urban Tree for Cooling Cities
  Prof L Shao
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to gain new and in-depth understanding of urban tree – built environment interactions. It will be carried out in the context of prevention of summer overheating and creation of comfortable outdoor and indoor living environments for city dwellers.
