  Robust protection of water resources in a changing climate
  Dr D Werner
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project is part of the ONE Planet DTP. Find out more here. https://research.ncl.ac.uk/one-planet/. Robust environmental fate prediction and risk assessment for agrochemicals plays a key role in assuring food security without polluting surface water resources.
  Development of Polymeric Nanocarriers in Continuous Flow for the Controlled Release of Agrochemicals
  Dr F Vilela, Dr V Arrighi
Application Deadline: 8 February 2019
In recent years, there has been major advances in the area of nanotechnology applied to agriculture and the environment. Nonetheless, many issues remain to be addressed for this technology to have a significant impact.
  Bioprospecting for plant growth promoting microbes
  Dr T Mauchline, Dr I Clark
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
Naturally occurring soil microbes resident in the root microbiome have been shown to benefit plants through increased macro and micro nutrient availability, hormonal growth modulation, abiotic stress relief as well as disease suppression.
  Productive agriculture needs tools for sustainability
  Dr J Crawford
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
Stagnating crop yields worldwide have renewed interest in the role of soil management in sustainable farming systems as the climate changes.
  (BBSRC DTP CASE) A synthetic biology approach to develop bacterial protein expression tools
  Prof J Micklefield, Dr A Green
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Streptomyces and related bacteria possess diverse biosynthetic pathways that produce a wide array of bioactive natural compounds including antibiotics, anti-cancer agents and other therapeutically important molecules.
  Understanding and mitigating the impacts of climate change on farmland plant-pollinator and host-parasitoid networks: an environmental informatics approach
  Dr D Evans
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Merging DNA metabarcoding with ecological network analysis provides a revolutionary opportunity to construct large, phylogenetically structured species-interaction networks, providing new ways to.
  Metabolic constraints arising from the loss of organic carbon and structure from soils
  Dr A Neal, Prof J Crawford
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019
Organic carbon is often implicitly linked with soil structure and its rapid loss from conventionally managed agricultural soils is a cause of serious concern.
  Synthetic Resistance to Potato Blight
  Prof R Van der Hoorn
Applications accepted all year round
The oomycete potato pathogen Phytophthora infestans has caused devastation during the Irish Potato Famine in the 1840s. P. infestans still causes major problems in the potato industry, and is mostly controlled using agrochemicals.
  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.
  Resistance and susceptibility in interactions between apple and woolly aphids (Ref: CTP_FCR_2019_6)
  Ms F Fernández, Dr G Powell
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
The Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC ) have awarded a Collaborative Training Partnership (CTP) grant to a consortium led by Berry Gardens Growers Ltd and NIAB EMR.
