  Balancing Nutritional Food Security and Biodiversity in a Globalized World (based at the University of Edinburgh)
  Dr J Ge, Dr G Polhill, Dr P Alexander
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Background. For many developing countries ensuring food security for its people and preserving the rich biodiversity on its untainted land are often regarded as a tradeoff.
  Using novel data sources and data driven methods to improve hydrological monitoring and forecasting for water and food security in developing regions
  Prof J Sheffield, Prof G Ramchurn
Application Deadline: 12 January 2019
Extreme hydrological events such as floods and droughts account for the majority of impacts of all natural hazards, in terms of human and economic costs.
  Facilitating the circular economy in India’s food security: the social, economic and agronomic barriers and opportunities of sewage
  Dr A Gathorne-Hardy, Dr K V Heal, Dr H Gorringe
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
Project summary. This interdisciplinary project combines social and environmental science to quantify the potential benefits of sewage for Indian agriculture, as well as understanding the social barriers to sewage use, and identifying opportunities to overcome these.
  How does climate influence insect responses to pesticides? – A key question for food security
  Dr S Hayward, Dr N J Hodges, Dr L Orsini
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Background. As poikilotherms the body temperature of insects is directly determined by environmental conditions. Thus, microclimate temperature profiles, which are often highly variable, will dictate rates of metabolic activity and development as well as behaviour.
  Elucidating infection at the plant-microbe interphase on a cellular, molecular and structural level to improve crop resistance and support food security

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.
  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.
  Tackling the fungal threat to global food security
