  Soil health metrics for sustainable agricultural systems
  Dr S Haefele
Application Deadline: 15 April 2019
Why is this project important?. Soil is the foundation of all agricultural systems. It is a complex biophysical system of aggregated particles and pore networks that, if managed carefully, provides plants with the medium for roots to grow and extract water and nutrients in order to produce food and fibre.
  Determining the Spatial and Temporal Distribution of Macro- and Micro-plastics in Soil and Their Impact on Soil Function
  Dr E Pagaling, Prof L Dawson, Dr S Devalla, Dr R Prabhu
Application Deadline: 5 April 2019
Current global production of plastics has reached over 300 million metric tons and is predicted to reach 1200 million metric tons by 2050.
  Solar photovoltaic and environment interactions: developing understanding and embedding co-benefits into the low carbon energy transition
  Dr A Armstrong
Application Deadline: 18 April 2019
Decarbonisation of energy supplies is triggering notable land use change across the world. To date there is relatively limited understanding of the consequences of this land use change yet considerable opportunity to embed ecosystem co-benefits.
  Is there a future for the harvest mouse in arable farmland?
  Dr T Reader
Applications accepted all year round
Project Overview. Small mammals, including the enigmatic harvest mouse (Micromys minutus), have long been associated with cereal farming.
  How does restoration alter plant traits, ecosystem multifunctionality and service provisioning in wetlands?
  Dr J Deslippe, Dr S Tomscha
Applications accepted all year round
Wetland restoration projects provide opportunities to regain the ecosystem services that have been lost or degraded through land conversions.
  PhD in Ecology and Environment: how ecosystems, and the species they contain, respond to environmental change and how to reduce and mitigate adverse impacts
  Dr D Childs
Applications accepted all year round
Environmental change threatens biodiversity, altering ecosystem processes and provision of ecosystem services. These environmental change pressures are accelerating due to growing human populations and accompanying climate change, land use, pollution and invasive species.
  Impacts of land-use change on tropical biodiversity
  Dr D Edwards
Applications accepted all year round
Tropical land-use change is a core driver of the global extinction and climate change crises. In the Edwards lab, we use field research, economic assessment and rigorous statistical analyses to determine the impacts of tropical land-use change on biodiversity, carbon stocks and other ecosystem services.
  Comparing effects of tree species and genetic diversity on ecosystem functioning and services
  Prof J Koricheva
Applications accepted all year round
The majority of forests in Europe are managed and underwent considerable changes in tree species richness, species composition and genetic diversity over the last few centuries.
  Saving Water with Smart Irrigation and Monitoring System based on Machine Learning
  Dr J Han
Application Deadline: 25 March 2019
The overall aim of this project is to explore the capacity of deep machine learning techniques to analyse and extract meaningful features from meteorological data, soil moisture sensing data, and plant based sensory data (thermal imaging).
  The impact of changes in river flow regime on the behaviour and population ecology of dippers, a riparian bird and bioindicator
  Dr S Sharp, Dr D Whyatt
Application Deadline: 29 March 2019
Freshwater ecosystems provide crucial ecosystem services and support exceptional biodiversity. However, rivers are highly influenced by environmental change and are among the most threatened of all ecosystems.
