Use of basaltic rock dust to improve grassland and arable soil quality and grassland and crop performance

There is increasing interest in artificially enhancing calcium silicate rock weathering to sequester carbon dioxide from the atmosphere into carbonate minerals, with the Leverhulme Centre For Climate Change Mitigation, led by Prof David Beerlig FRS, providing a major programe of international reearch in this area.

PhD in Palynology

Professor Charles Wellman supervises self-funded Ph.D. research projects in Palynology hosted by the Centre for Palynology. These can encompass taxonomic, biostratigraphical or palaeoenvironmental (palynofacies) analysis. Read more

PhD in the biology of ageing

Research into ageing is a growing and fascinating area of biology and medicine. It is increasingly recognised in academia, society and industry that many debilitating diseases and conditions share their origins in the process of ageing. Read more

PhD in the genomics of rapid adaptation in plants

We invite applications for a PhD in the area of genomics and rapid adaptation in plants. Our research combines cutting-edge genomic techniques, comparative analyses and experimental approaches to understand how organisms adapt to their environment. Read more

PhD in agricultural biology - forecasting management and economics of climate change

The world faces a major challenge to ensure the security of food supplies in the face of threats resulting from climate change, growing population and the development of resistance to pesticides. Read more

PhD: Improving Photosynthesis

Improving photosynthetic efficiency has been identified as one of the few remaining traits for exploitation if we are to achieve the significant increases in crop yield required to feed the projected 9 billion world population by 2050. Read more

PhD in evolutionary biology - retracing the origins of C4 photosynthesis in the grass Alloteropsis semialata

During evolution, grasses acquired a variety of functional traits that allowed them to colonize almost all environments around the globe, and rank amongst the most productive crops, weeds, and invasive species. Read more
