  Irrigation poverty traps in the Eastern Gangetic Plains
  Research Group: Molecular Environmental Sciences
  Dr T Foster, Prof D Polya
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
Agriculture is central to the livelihoods of millions of rural households across South Asia. For the majority of smallholder farmers in this region, the dominant source of irrigation water supply is groundwater.
  Antibiotics in agriculture - Assessing the impacts of wastewater irrigation on soil health, antimicrobial resistance and crop production
  Dr S Toet, Prof A Boxall, Dr A Singer
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Why is this project important?. Large amounts of antibiotics are used globally for human and animal treatment. These substances are released to agricultural soils directly through animal excreta, via manure or sewage sludge when applied as fertiliser, and by irrigation of wastewater.
  Water Sensitive Cities and Commons: using recycled water for maintenance irrigation in order for green-blue infrastructure planting schemes to be more reliably sustained
  Dr K Hyde, Dr D Perrotti
Applications accepted all year round
Communities with existing urban water infrastructure face barriers to engagement between the urban community and the urban water environment; for example in the case of streams culverted underneath districts or unhealthy, overgrown feeder streams and ponds that seem to have no social role or function.
  Dam impact and management in an era of change: the case of the TAMS Hydropower Project in Ethiopia (Advert Reference: RDF19/EE/MCE/MOTTA)
  Dr D Motta
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
The TAMS hydropower project is a proposed multipurpose project located in the Baro River basin in Southwestern Ethiopia. The project area is at the junction zone between the lowering, thickly wooded highlands of the Baro River basin and the alluvial, fertile plains of the lower Baro River.
  Optimising urban environments by integrating surface water and greywater systems with urban agriculture
  Dr K Hyde
Applications accepted all year round
Greywater, or water that originated from showering and bathing, after subsequent treatment has important potential for sustaining urban agriculture and urban green infrastructure.
  Organic wastes and food, energy and water provision in Sub-Saharan Africa
  Dr J Smith, Prof P Hallett
Applications accepted all year round
Globally, over 2.8 billion people still rely on unsustainable solid biomass for cooking and heating, of which ~2.2 billion (78%) live in rural areas.
  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).
  Establishing a Scientific-Evidence Base for a Paradigm Shift for Regenerative Clinical Dentistry
  Dr J Camilleri
Applications accepted all year round
Management of diseases to the dental pulp is undertaken clinically using protocols that are historical and have no scientific background.
  The Carbon Cycle of and Artificial Tropical Ecosystem.
  Dr D Bebber, Dr L Rowland
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Location. University of Exeter, Streatham Campus, Exeter EX4 4QJ. This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  More crop per drop: re-engineering root system architecture for improved water uptake
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr S Kepinski, Prof W Harwood
Application Deadline: 20 December 2018
The rising world population and increasingly conspicuous effects of climate change mean that increases in food production of ~60% must be achieved through a sustainable intensification of agriculture over the next two-three decades [1].
