  Developing a Multi-Pollutant Water Quality Model for Spatial Targeting of Land Management Interventions to Reduce Water Pollution
  Dr M Glendell, Dr L Jackson-Blake, Dr I Pohle, Prof A J Wade
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
This studentship, jointly funded by the James Hutton Institute and SCENARIO programme at the University of Reading, aims to quantify the response of carbon, nitrogen, sediment and phosphorus in river-systems to small-scale pollution mitigation measures.
  SCENARIO: Developing a Multi-Pollutant Water Quality Model for Spatial Targeting of Land Management Interventions to Reduce Water Pollution
  Prof A J Wade, Dr M Glendell, Dr I Pohle, Dr L Jackson-Blake

  BBSRC Eastbio PhD Programme: Developing and applying a high-throughput platform in barley to screen for resistance and enhanced susceptibility to aphids
  Dr J Bos, Prof R Waugh, Dr J Russell
Application Deadline: 10 December 2018
Aphids are economically important pests globally, and can cause significant yield loss of crops, including barley. Currently there are no commercial barley cultivars that are resistant against aphids, and only limited sources of partial resistance have been reported to date.
  Regulating Cell-to-cell Movement in Plants - Plasmodesmal Gating by a Contractile Cellular Machinery
  Dr P Hemsley, Dr J Tilsner, Dr A Roberts
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Background. Plant viruses are major crop pathogens with a global agro-economic impact. The Tilsner lab has recently made major advances in understanding how viruses transport their genome from infected to naïve cells through plasmodesmata, cell-cell-connecting membrane-lined channels.
  Plasmodesmal gating by a contractile cellular machinery
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr J Tilsner
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Background. Plant viruses are major crop pathogens with a global agro-economic impact. The Tilsner lab has recently made major advances in understanding how they transport their genome from infected into naïve cells through plasmodesmata (PD), cell-cell-connecting membrane-lined channels.
  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.
  Bayesian Network Approaches for Vulnerability Assessment and Management of Diffuse Groundwater Pollution
  Dr M Troldborg, Dr Z Zhang, Dr J C Comte, Dr B Marchant
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
BACKGROUND. Groundwater (GW) is an important source of drinking water in many countries and plays a vital role in the natural water cycle, providing the baseflow of surface water ecosystems.
  Determining the Effect of Urbanization on the Prevalence of Antimicrobial Resistance in Aquatic Environments
  Dr E Pagaling, Dr L Avery, Dr R Hough, Dr C W Knapp
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Background. The threat of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the biggest challenges to society today. In the EU, ~25,000 patients die annually from an infection with drug-resistant bacteria, resulting in estimated losses of at least EUR 1.5 billion.
  Developing a High-Throughput Platform in Barley to Screen for Resistance to Aphids
  Dr J Russell, Prof R Waugh, Dr J Bos
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Aphids are economically important pests globally, and can cause significant yield loss of crops, including barley. Currently there are no commercial barley cultivars that are resistant against aphids, and only limited sources of partial resistance have been reported to date.
  Exploring the ecological and evolutionary impacts of novel agricultural probiotics on naive microbial communities
  Dr P Iannetta, Prof E James, Dr E Harrison
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Background. Probiotic inoculants represent a major tool in the shift towards a more sustainable agriculture.
