Understanding the potential role of biofortified (nutrient enhanced) crops for improving UK diets

Micronutrient deficiencies are highly prevalent in UK populations and are associated with the dual burden of malnutrition. Food-based health inequalities have been exacerbated through prolonged austerity and the Covid-19 pandemic. Read more

Stress responses in crops and sustainable production of chemicals and biomass

The project aims at elucidating several aspects of the control of plant stress responses to identify environmentally friendly forms of plant protectants and phytopharmaceuticals, leading to enhanced crop yields and solutions for animals and human health. Read more

Community-informed diversification of local food systems

Background. Our recent research shows that the distributions of crops worldwide tend to be limited more by historical processes of dispersal and establishment, than by climatic tolerance. Read more

Engineering more water-use efficient crops: functional genomics of CO2 fixation during Crassulacean acid metabolism

The world is getting hotter and drier due to climate change, and the human population is growing rapidly. Furthermore, it has been predicted that we will need to increase crop yields by 50 - 70 % by 2050 in order to feed the predicted 9 - 10 billion people. Read more

Using on-farm technologies to manage soil carbon and crops: understanding farming knowledges and practices in the deployment of sustainability technologies

Applications are invited for a PhD student to work with Dr. Sarah Shaw (Supervisor), Dr. Sushma Kumari and Prof. Graham Ferrier (Co-Supervisor) on using on-farm soil carbon and crop management technologies to understand farming knowledges and practices. Read more

More crop per drop: optimising root system architecture for sustainable food production

The rising world population and increasingly conspicuous effects of climate change are creating a ‘perfect storm’ in which the demand for food and other agricultural commodities is growing dramatically and unsustainably. Read more

MSc by Research: Regulation of Architecture in Barley

Plant architecture, or body plan, plays a key role in determining grain yield of crop plants. However, we have little understanding of the molecular genetic basis of architecture in the temperate cereals such as barley (Hordeum vulgare L.), especially in comparison to the warm weather crops such as rice (Oryza sativa). Read more

Net-Zero vertical farming

  Research Group: Architecture, Built Environment and Planning
The Food and Agriculture Organization estimates that food production will need to increase by 70% to feed an expected global population of 9 billion in 2050. Read more

The Robert H. Smith Faculty of Agriculture, Food and Environment

Located in Rehovot and ranked among the world's leading agricultural schools, the Robert H. Smith Faculty of Agriculture, Food and Environment is the single institute of higher education in Israel that offers academic degrees in agriculture, and is home to Israel's only school of veterinary medicine. Read more

Designing catalytic pyrolysis of biomass for green hydrogen production

  Research Group: Catalysis and Porous Materials
We welcome applications for this fully funded PhD studentship project from highly motivated candidates interested in advancing technology towards Net Zero goals through development of green hydrogen production routes. Read more
