  The role of chloroplasts in responding to drought stress in plants
  Prof M J Terry, Dr P Skipp
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Programme website. Project Rationale. Food security is a major problem facing the World and one that is going to become more pressing in coming decades due to increased population and new challenges imposed by climate change (1).
  Assessing Drought Resilience of Restored Peatlands Using Combined Optical and Microwave Satellite Data
  Dr A Gimona, Dr R Artz, Dr TL Quaife, Prof K Morrison
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Background. Peatlands are a key component of the terrestrial carbon cycle. They sequester large amounts of carbon from the atmosphere.
  Tree mortality and drought: leveraging the power of big data
  Dr T Pugh, Dr J P Sadler, Dr T Matthews
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Why do trees die? How do the rates and drivers of tree mortality vary from the tropical rainforest to the boreal? How do these mortality rates affect forest structure? These questions are crucial in order to understand large-scale forest dynamics.
  Ecological Function of a Water-sensing Molecular Fossil
  Research Group: Institute of Life and Earth Sciences
  Dr P C Morris, Dr J Thompson, Dr R Alexander
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Abiotic stress tolerance in plants is a critical attribute and a key objective for plant breeders. The world is experiencing unprecedented increases in average global temperatures and extreme weather events leading to intermittent periods of drought and waterlogging (water stress).
  Drought history of Southern Africa from windblown dust in ocean sediments and links to changes in global warmth and polar ice volume
  Prof P Wilson, Dr A Crocker, Dr S Bohary
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Programme website. Project Rationale. As Earth heats up this century because of human forcing, precipitation patterns will change globally.
  SCENARIO: A new approach to navigating uncertainty in climate-related hydrologic risk
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Prof T Shepherd, Dr K.A. Smith, Prof N Arnell, Dr G Darch
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Climate change poses a severe threat to the environment, and it is essential to be able to evaluate climate-related risk and provide appropriate guidance to decision-makers.
  Physiological and molecular characterisation of altered root hydraulic properties in rice due to allelic variation or genetic manipulation of plasma membrane intrinsic proteins (PIPs, a class of aquaporins)
  Prof A Price
Applications accepted all year round
A cluster of three PIPs on chromosome 7 of rice are all candidate genes for a drought avoidance locus. These genes are highly expressed in roots and thought to have a major role in root hydraulic conductance.
  Why are some trees more sensitive to climate than others?
  Dr R Brienen, Prof E Gloor, Dr D Galbraith
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Why are some trees more sensitive to climate than others? A study on the functional linkage of tree hydraulics and their sensitivity to climate.
  Does biodiversity restoration enhance the capacity of ecosystem functions to buffer climate extremes?
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Prof R Bardgett, Prof D Johnson, Dr M Semchenko
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
The role of species diversity as a driver of ecosystem stability - or the ability of an ecosystem to maintain a relatively stable state in the face of environmental fluctuations - has a long history in ecology.
  Understanding the role of water in reaching the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and trade-offs with energy and food production
  Prof J Sheffield, Prof C Hutton
Application Deadline: 12 January 2019
Progress towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) requires progress to be made on many fronts in human-developed systems.
