  BBSCR ICase project: What makes a good female? Trait characterization of female fertility traits for hybrid development in wheat
  Prof Z A Wilson, Dr J Fernandez
Application Deadline: 4 April 2019
Successful reproduction is critical to seed set and crop yields. Self-fertilisation typically occurs in cereals, however hybrids, the products of cross-fertilisation, tend to more resilient and have up to 20% increased yield potential compared to inbred equivalents.
  BBSRC iCase Project: Enhancing Barley Environmental Stress Tolerance Through Targeted Mutagenesis
  Dr G Mendiondo, Dr D Cook
Application Deadline: 4 April 2019
Global warming and the predicted impact on seasonal rainfall variation suggest that we may see both drier and wetter growing seasons in the future.
  Development of Single-Cell Ionomics in Plants
  Prof D Salt, Dr P Flis
Applications accepted all year round
We are looking to recruit a PhD student who will work on the development of single-cell ionomics in plants. This is a new approach and will allow the fusion of cell biology and the study of the ionome.
  Medical Research Foundation National PhD Training Programme in Antimicrobial Resistance Research: Modelling the Risks of AMR from Agricultural Waste to Animal and Human Health
  Prof D J Stekel, Dr S Totemeyer, Dr T Kypraios
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
This project will use mathematical modelling to evaluate the risks to human and animal health of antibiotics and antimicrobials given to farm animals.
  PhD: Characterisation of whole plant abiotic stress resilience traits
  Dr R Bhosale
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  PhD: Enhancing utilisation of alternative crops using fermentation
  Dr Y Lim
Applications accepted all year round
Supervisors. Yin Sze Lim(PI) (Biosciences, UNM), John Brameld (Biosciences, UK), Tim Parr(Biosciences, UK), Andy Salter (Biosciences, UK).
  PhD: Food recycling: Utilising food waste for valuable proteins
  Dr A Ali
Applications accepted all year round
Supervisors. Asgar Ali (PI) (Biosciences, UNM), Le Cheng Foh (Biosciences, UNM), Tim Parr (Biosciences, UNUK). Based in School of Biosciences, Semenyih, University of Nottingham Malaysia.
  PhD: Improving the Nutritional Quality of Future Protein
  Prof S Avery
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Supervisors. Simon Avery (PI) (Life Sciences, UK), Paul Dyer (Life Sciences, UK), Rebecca Ford (Biosciences, UK), Cormac O’Shea (Biosciences, UK).
  PhD: Natural protein ingredients – the impacts of reduced refinement
  Dr J Gould
Applications accepted all year round
Supervisors. Jo Gould (PI) (Bioscience, UK), Tim Foster (Bioscience, UK), Peter Rose (Bioscience, UK). Based in the School of Biosciences, Sutton Bonington Campus, UK.
  PhD: Reconstructing 11,500 years of Anatolian Cereal Diversity
  Dr B Lomax
Applications accepted all year round
This will be achieved via the chemical analysis of isolated single grass pollen grains from Lake Nar, Turkey, compared to traditional, visual, pollen analysis.
