A Ph.D. position may be available entitled Potassium deposition within the root elongation zone.
The project focuses on the control of cell expansion in plants and will test
the hypothesis that K+ uptake into growing root cells is mainly apoplastic
and coordinated with cell expansion.
Techniques to be used include pressure probe, single cell sampling, radiaotracer
and electrophysiological techniques. Supervisors will be Dr. Phil White at HRI Wellesbourne
and Dr. Jeremy Pritchard, University of Birmingham
