PhD: Characterisation of whole plant abiotic stress resilience traits

  • Full or part time
  • Application Deadline
    Applications accepted all year round
  • Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)
    Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

Project Description

The PhD student will work as part of a team conducting multi-trait rice phenotyping to establish the genomics basis of stress resilience using GWAS approaches. This will involve combined root and shoot phenotyping of rice plants undergoing heat stress using diverse rice germplasm collections.

Data will be integrated across a range of organs and scales to characterise optimal phenotypes for crop resilience at a whole plant level. Data will be linked via GWAS to provide a pipeline for stress resilience trait discovery to identify agronomically important traits for resilience. The identified traits of interest will be subsequently characterised via targeted CRISPR/Cas9 mutagenesis and molecular and physiological analysis, using the microscopic platforms and genomic facilities at UoN.

This PhD will be based in the School of Biosciences. For further details, please contact Dr Rahul Bhosale:
