  Urban Tree for Cooling Cities
  Prof L Shao
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Accessing natural and induced variation to improve the protein quality of faba bean
  Prof D O'Sullivan, Dr P Tosi
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
This PhD project is about uncovering the molecular genetic basis for faba bean protein content and protein quality, specifically the proportions of essential amino acids in the seed protein.
  Understanding drought tolerance of potato using multispectral imaging technology
  Dr L Bell
Application Deadline: 25 March 2019
Potato crop yield is severely affected by drought and heat stress. Extremes in UK summer temperatures and periods of drought are likely to increase due to climate change, and new methods are required to maintain yields.

  Mine site restoration and ecosystem development
  Prof M Tibbett
Applications accepted all year round
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
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.
  Interactions between introduced tree species and native mycorrhizal fungi in the UK
  Dr BJ Pickles
Applications accepted all year round
"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.
  The role of insect-plant-fungus interactions in natural and managed systems
  Dr P E Hatcher
Applications accepted all year round
Plants are attacked both by insects and pathogenic fungi, often at the same time, yet these are often studied by different specialists.
  Investigating the molecular basis of bacterial pathogenicity of invertebrates
  Prof R W Jackson
Applications accepted all year round
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.
