The Centre for Doctoral training in Aerosol Science (CAS) is now recruiting to our 4-year PhD programme for 2019 entry.
  The Impact of Management on Grassland and Cropland Soil Organic Carbon
  Dr K Byrne
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Carbon (C) sequestration associated with pastures and improved grassland management could provide a mitigation option without impacting on agricultural production.
  The impact of changing landscapes on arthropod diversity and biological pest control in agro-ecosystem
  Dr Y Zou, Dr B Li, Prof J Knops, Dr J Hodgson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

景观变化对农田节肢动物多样性以及生物防治的影响.
  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.
  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.
  Unravelling the role of lags and legacies in explaining the response of grasslands to elevated CO2
  Dr M De Kauwe, Prof M Hovenden
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The rising concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere stimulates plant growth; however, in grassland ecosystems, the observed growth responses are highly variable and often depart markedly from our theoretical predictions.
  Getting Dirty with Soil Phosphorus (BREARLEYU20DTP)
  Dr C Brearley, Dr J Todd
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

A growing world population demands that agricultural production is managed sustainability. A major threat is our over-reliance for fertilizer on rock phosphate that is a dwindling and geo-politically vulnerable resource.
  Enhancing ecosystem functioning to improve sustainability of subsistence farming in Papua New Guinea
  Dr R Morris, Dr J.L. Snaddon, Dr B.J. Robroek
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Increasing agricultural production in high biodiversity tropical areas, alongside a growing population, and climate change, is an increasing challenge in many countries with tropical climates.
  Modelling the effects of climate change on European yields of oilseed rape (PENFIELDUJIC20ARIES)
  Dr S Penfield
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change is now widely understood to be impacting food supplies. Ensuring future food security will require understanding how climate change will affect crop yields in different agricultural systems and the design of appropriate measures for adaptation.
