  Chemical pollution and biodiversity: assessing risk to ecosystem services.
  Prof L L Maltby
Applications accepted all year round
Chemicals are a critical part of modern life and a cornerstone of any modern industrial strategy. However, chemicals released into the environment can have adverse effects on biodiversity and the benefits it provide to people (i.e.
  Diet and mTor signaling in ageing-related neurodegenerative disease
  Dr M J P Simons, Dr S Sweeney
Applications accepted all year round
Reducing food intake robustly increases lifespan in model organisms. When this data is extrapolated to humans, the predicted gain in healthy lifespan beats curing all stroke, diabetes, cancer and cardiac disease.
  Disease phenomics - quantifying the development of disease symptoms in infected plants
  Dr S A Rolfe
Applications accepted all year round
Biology is undergoing a revolution as ‘omic technologies allow us to make hundreds or thousands of measurements on large populations of plants.
  Elucidating infection at the plant-microbe interphase on a cellular, molecular and structural level to improve crop resistance and support food security
  Dr C Voigt
Applications accepted all year round
Achieving food security is one of the most important global challenges. Crop production and yield has been increasingly threatened by plant pathogens in a rapidly changing environment.
  Engineering The Rice Leaf for Improved Photosynthesis
  Prof A Fleming
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Evolution of Reproductive traits - to elucidate the genetic and developmental basis of reproductive failure
  Dr N Hemmings
Applications accepted all year round
Sexual selection is underpinned by variation in reproductive success. Our research group studies the mechanisms underpinning this variation, primarily using birds as a model.
  Evolutionary origins of adaptive traits in grasses*
  Dr P A Christin
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  How does clubroot obtain nutrients from its living plant host?
  Dr S A Rolfe
Applications accepted all year round
Clubroot is an important pathogen of Brassica crops. The disease is found throughout the world and causes severe economic losses.
  How does rising atmospheric CO2 change the productivity of crops and trees?
  Prof C P Osborne
Applications accepted all year round
Professor Colin Osborne, Department of Animal and Plant Sciences, University of Sheffield, Sheffield, UK. New research in the lab investigates how plant growth is controlled by the supply of carbon from photosynthesis (source strength) verses the demand for carbon in growing tissues (sink strength).
