wheat PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships for Self-funded Students

We have 8 wheat PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships for Self-funded Students

Triple whammy - breeding wheat for increased winter growth rate

Crop root growth has generated significant interest with regard to net zero agriculture, because increasing root mass captures more carbon in the soil, and leads to more effective uptake of nitrogenous fertilizer. Read more

Epigenetic profiling of cereal fungal invaders. (SAUNDERS_J24DTP1)

Wheat blast and rusts are fungal diseases that severely damage cereal production worldwide. During infection, these fungi secrete proteins into wheat plants to reprogramme host plant circuitry, supporting their own growth and development. Read more

Self-funded MSc R- Sublethal effects of novel insecticides on a beneficial parasitoid wasp and the implications for biological control

Broad-spectrum chemical insecticides such as neonicotinoids are a major cause of beneficial insect declines globally. In response to this, bans and restrictions on neonicotinoid use have been implemented on a global scale in an attempt to reverse trends in insect biodiversity loss. Read more

Engineering more water-use efficient crops: functional genomics of CO2 fixation during Crassulacean acid metabolism

The world is getting hotter and drier due to climate change, and the human population is growing rapidly. Furthermore, it has been predicted that we will need to increase crop yields by 50 - 70 % by 2050 in order to feed the predicted 9 - 10 billion people. Read more
