  FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Clove Production, Crop Diversity and Biodiversity
  Prof T Caro
Application Deadline: 17 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT. Cloves are central to Pemba Island, Tanzania, sometimes grown as a monoculture, but also with native and introduced species.
  FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Function and development of superhydrophilic slippery plant surfaces
  Dr U Bauer
Application Deadline: 17 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT. The trapping surfaces of carnivorous pitcher plants are unusually wettable and turn extremely slippery for insects when wet.
  FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: How can farming methods help to mitigate climate change?
  Dr G Barker
Application Deadline: 17 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT. Global temperatures are likely to increase by 1.5°C compared to pre-industrial levels by 2030-2052.
  FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Identifying DNA sequences in crops with the potential to reduce soil erosion
  Prof C S Grierson
Application Deadline: 17 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT. We wish to understand how plants help hold roots and soil together. This is important because crops have major effects on soil erosion rates and the fertility of land in cultivation.
  FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Light control of leaf senescence
  Prof K Franklin
Application Deadline: 17 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT. Leaf senescence reduces the quality and postharvest shelf life of crops. Delaying this process is therefore a key objective for reducing waste in the food chain.
  FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Map the gap – making palm oil more sustainable by mapping yield gaps across tropical landscapes
  Dr T Jucker
