  Interactions between agricultural adaptations to climate change and vector-borne disease
  Dr F Hawkes
Application Deadline: 10 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project will explore how proposed and/or practiced agricultural adaptations to climate change in Tanzania may impact on the ecology and biology of insect vectors of disease and, ultimately, disease risk.
  Field scale reconstruction of nineteenth century rural land use using first County Series OS maps and parish area books
  Prof N S Walford, Dr D Brown
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will explore agricultural land use change in mid-nineteenth century England, which was a period of relatively high prosperity and stability before the onset of an era of decline and depression from the early 1870s through to the twentieth century.
  Emissions of Greenhouse Gases from Extensive Agriculture in the Indio-Gangetic Plain
  Dr H Boesch, Dr H Sembhi
Application Deadline: 8 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Agriculture is the world’s second-largest emitter of damaging greenhouse gases (GHG) after the energy sector. The future growth of the global population will result in additional pressures on the agricultural sector to secure food production whilst aiming to reduce GHG emissions.
  Nanoparticle conjugates for agricultural disease detection and diagnosis
  Dr L Wong, Prof J Micklefield
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Infectious diseases in plant crops present a significant socioeconomic burden globally, as they compromise the safety and reliability of food supply, as well as other agricultural products.
  The fourth agricultural revolution: how can we ensure that innovation is responsible?
  Dr D Rose
Application Deadline: 4 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Agriculture sits on the cusp of a fourth technology revolution. New technologies, such as Artificial Intelligence, Drones, Big Data, the Internet of Things, robotics, gene editing (and more!), have the potential to transform food production beyond recognition.
  Physical activity, energy expenditures, and time use in agriculture and rural livelihood
  Dr G Zanello
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The limited uptake of agricultural innovations with proven productivity-enhancing potential and the translation of productivity increases into improvements in nutrition are two major development challenges facing Low and Middle Income Countries (LMICs).
  Seed dormancy and germination: understanding the molecular basis to improve seed quality and seedling performance of horticultural and agricultural crops
  Prof G Leubner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant seeds and fruits are at the beginning and the end of most important food supply chains that are central to human existence (food security).
  The role of woodlands in the diversity and resilience of pollinator communities in agricultural landscapes (DAVIESUBIO20ARIES)
  Dr R Davies, Dr M Taylor, Dr L Dicks
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND. Intensive agriculture is a key driver of declines in pollinating insect diversity, abundance and pollination services.
  PhD in agricultural biology - forecasting management and economics of climate change
  Prof R Freckleton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
