  Biological implications of genetics variation in rice for mycorrhizal colonisation.
  Prof A Price
Applications accepted all year round
We have demonstrated repeatable and substantial differences in the colonisation of rice cultivars by the model arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungus Rizophagus irregularis and mapped quantitative trait loci for the variation.
  Functional Significance of Al hyper-accumulation in Tropical Forest Trees
  Dr D Burslem, Dr Y Arn
Applications accepted all year round
Numerous plant species take up and store high concentrations of Al from the soil system, despite the toxicity of Al3+ to plant metabolism.
  Physiological and molecular characterisation of altered root hydraulic properties in rice due to allelic variation or genetic manipulation of plasma membrane intrinsic proteins (PIPs, a class of aquaporins)
  Prof A Price
Applications accepted all year round
A cluster of three PIPs on chromosome 7 of rice are all candidate genes for a drought avoidance locus. These genes are highly expressed in roots and thought to have a major role in root hydraulic conductance.
  A Tidal Clock: Circadian and Circatidal Rhythms in a Marine Intertidal Crustacean
  Dr D Wilcockson
Application Deadline: 17 January 2019
This project is part of a competition funded through the Aberystwyth University ’AberDoc’ scheme (https://www.aber.ac.uk/en/postgrad/fees-finance/uk-eu/research-competition/) and is in collaboration with Leicester University (Professor Bambos Kyriacou) and Cambridge MRC-LMB (Dr Michael Hastings).
  MPhil Scholarship: Developing Oats for Improving Human and Animal Health
  Dr I P Shah
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
TO READ THE FULL PROJECT DESCRIPTION PLEASE VISIT. http://kess2.ac.uk/aum30004/. Available evidence highlights a major opportunity to add significant value to oats through the isolation and quantification of lipids as functional ingredients in the human food chain or for use in the cosmetic industry.
  Marie Skłodowska-Curie ITN, Early Stage Researcher (iPLACENTA, ESR11): “Enhancing imaging of the placenta in murine models of preeclampsia and standardisation of preeclampsia mouse models”
  Prof A Ahmed
Application Deadline: 14 December 2018
Aston Medical School is looking for an Early Stage Researcher (ESR) to work on the project “Enhancing imaging of the placenta in murine models of preeclampsia and standardisation of preeclampsia mouse models (ESR11)” as part of iPLACENTA network collaborating with 14 other ESRs based in 11 European academic, industrial and clinical institutes.
  Understanding parallel origins of industrial metal tolerance in Silene uniflora
  Dr A. Papadopulos
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Climate change, urbanisation and exploitation of natural resources increasingly alter the environment, posing significant challenges for plants and animals.
  Defining targets modulating anti-tumour immune effectors in vivo
  Dr E Roberts
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
The Cancer Research UK Beatson Institute in Glasgow is one of the world-leading centres for cancer research. The Institute provides an outstanding research environment, underpinned by state-of-the-art core services and advanced technologies with special emphasis on imaging, metabolomics and in vivo models of cancer.
  Exploiting metabolic vulnerability in cancer
  Dr D Lewis
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
The Cancer Research UK Beatson Institute in Glasgow is one of the world leading centres for cancer metabolism research.
  Cryptosporidium movement in water: impact of eutrophication and climate change on the zoonotic disease agent
  Prof J Cable
Application Deadline: 17 December 2018
Cryptosporidium is a human pathogen unknown until the mid-1970s; in 1993 0.4 million people were infected in Milwaukee following a water treatment failure, and since then, large outbreaks throughout the developed world (most recently Sweden, 2010) have kept the parasite in the public eye.
