  A Few Bad Potatoes: Modelling Economic Aspects of Disease Control in Seed Potatoes
  Prof I Toth, Prof A Kleczkowski, Dr S Humphris
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Background. Production and export of seed potatoes is of immense value to the UK economy, yet threatened by multiple disease threats.
  How will global crop production develop under climate change? Improving our predictive capability.
  Dr T Pugh, Prof M Tausz
Applications accepted all year round
Crop yields are highly sensitive to climate, with even relatively moderate climate change, such as that aimed for by the Paris agreement, placing future food security in doubt (Pugh et al., 2016).
  More crop per drop: re-engineering root system architecture for improved water uptake
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr S Kepinski, Prof W Harwood
Application Deadline: 20 December 2018
The rising world population and increasingly conspicuous effects of climate change mean that increases in food production of ~60% must be achieved through a sustainable intensification of agriculture over the next two-three decades [1].
  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.
  Developing novel methods of estimating crop yield and yield gap in smallholder agricultural systems using Earth Observation data
  Dr B Ogutu, Prof J Dash
Application Deadline: 12 January 2019
Information on crop yield and yield gap is important for planning, monitoring agricultural trends and identifying potential areas for sustainable intensification to improve agricultural productivity and ensure food security.
  Sustainable approaches to crop protection: silicon supplementation and its effects on symbiont-mediated multitrophic interactions
  Dr J Ferrari, Prof S Hartley
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Outbreaks of insect pests damage crops and are predicted to increase under climate change. Controlling them with synthetic pesticides is environmentally damaging and sustainable alternatives are urgently needed.
  A fully funded 4-year PhD is offered for a project entitled “Development of tyre soil interaction models for use to improve cereal establishment”.
  Prof K McDonnell
Application Deadline: 15 December 2018
UCD together with Origin Enterprises Plc have established a new collaborative research programme, CONSUS, focussed on the application of precision agriculture to crop production with a particular emphasis on optimisation of agri-food production systems leading to more efficient food production with lower environmental impacts.
  Designing better Rubisco for crops: Predicting effects of amino acid substitutions on Rubisco kinetics using machine learning
  Dr M Kapralov
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
The rapid growth of human population commands to increase crop yields by 50 - 70 % by 2050 in order to feed the predicted 9 - 10 billion people.
  Managing Rare Arable Weeds to Promote Soil Function and Support Maintenance of Barley Yields
  Dr R Brooker, Prof R Pakeman, Dr J Rowntree
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Background. There is increasing concern about an ongoing decline in biodiversity, particularly as a consequence of agricultural intensification [1].
  Genetic Control of Plant and Crop Fertility: Understanding the Impact of Key Gene Networks on Pollen and Gamete Fitness
  Research Group: Behavioural & Developmental Genetics
  Prof D Twell, Dr R Badge
Applications accepted all year round
Plant fertility and food security depend upon the vital role of pollen grains, which deliver the male gametes required for fertilisation and seed production.
