The global drivers of mutualism breakdown

I am seeking a highly motivated PhD student to join this exciting project on the macroevolution of mutualisms. Students with background including computer science, applied mathematics and environmental science are encouraged to apply in addition to those from pure biological sciences. Read more

Environmental regulation of crop productivity

Crop productivity is highly dependent on environmental conditions. Understanding the mechanisms by which plants respond to environmental signals will therefore allow us to select for climate resilient crops and improve global food security. Read more

Phytochemicals as safe and sustainable antibiotic alternative for effective control of pathogenic organisms in humans and animals

The use of antibiotics in livestock has significantly contributed to animal health and welfare as well as high quality of food production in modern farming but has also been linked to the rapid development and global spread of antimicrobial resistance (AMR). Read more

EASTBIO - Role of Effectors In Determining Host Range of P. rubi and P. fragariae

The world needs a sustainable and secure supply of fresh, affordable and healthful food. Increased demand for berries is being driven by their popularity and healthful properties. Read more

Understanding the effects of changing temperatures on seed dormancy, seed quality and seed conservation (PENFIELD_J22DTP2)

This project is a Joint-Studentship with Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew. Plants use temperature as an important signal to modulate seed dormancy and seed longevity, and thus changes to seed germination are a key factor in climate change-led extinction events in plants. Read more

Growing new commercial crops on the Island of Ireland to diversify farming and add value

This three-year PhD will optimise the cultivation of novel commercial crops, not previously been grown on the Island of Ireland. It will evaluate the impact of crop varieties and their management on the yield of bioactive compounds. Read more

Plant food consumption, flavonoids and cardiometabolic health

Plant-based diets have become very popular due to potential benefits for individual and planetary health. The goal of this PhD project will be to investigate the role of flavonoids as mediators of health benefits of plant food consumption. Read more
