Architect Job: PhD Studentship: Understanding resilience in garden flora within the context of a changed climate

Updates on engineering and architecture jobs available around the world

This project is a collaboration between the Universities of Sheffield and Reading and the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS). It reflects recent climatic trends of more variable weather patterns and the impacts of these on garden/landscape plant viability and performance.

This project will investigate how different stress factors (water availability, temperature, wind) interact to affect plant performance. There will also be a scoping study to determine what traits plants in natural ecosystems possess that could be linked to enhance stress tolerance.

We are seeking a highly motivated student with honours degree (1st or 2:1) in plant biology, horticulture, ecology, environmental science or similar, and an MSc / MRes in a relevant subject.

For further information and how to apply please see studentship webpage.
