  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.
  Natural toxins and their synthetic analogues as tools to study ion channels and as potential drugs and pesticides
  Dr I R Mellor
Applications accepted all year round
The project will use a combination of electrophysiological techniques such as voltage-clamp and patch-clamp with molecular biology and protein expression to understand how natural toxins and their synthetic analogues act on ion channels in the nervous system.
  Raindrops, pesticides, and oil spills – droplet interactions with porous and textured surfaces
  Dr P D Hicks, Dr Y Tanino
Applications accepted all year round
Droplet interactions with porous and textured surfaces play a crucial role in many important physical processes including the spraying of plant leaves with…
  Dynamics, function and influence of gut microbiome in pesticides resistance
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr L Orsini, Prof J B Brown, Dr S Hayward
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Background. The development of insecticide resistance is a worldwide concern and elucidating the underlying mechanisms is critical for effective crop protection and human health.
  Butterfly evo-devo in a conservation context: how embryos respond to pesticides and immune challenges
  Dr C Breuker
Application Deadline: 3 January 2019
Over the course of their life cycle butterflies are exposed to a range of environmental factors, which act as both inducers of phenotypic variation as well as selective agents.
  Development of Polymeric Nanocarriers in Continuous Flow for the Controlled Release of Agrochemicals
  Dr F Vilela, Dr V Arrighi
Application Deadline: 8 February 2019
In recent years, there has been major advances in the area of nanotechnology applied to agriculture and the environment. Nonetheless, many issues remain to be addressed for this technology to have a significant impact.
  GW4 FRESH CDT PhD Studentship - High resolution modelling of fate and transport of organic micropollutants and their effect on ecosystems in small rivers
  Prof J Hofman
Application Deadline: 17 December 2018
This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Centre for Doctoral Training in Freshwater Biosciences and Sustainability (GW4 FRESH CDT) which is offering 12 studentships for entry in September/October 2019.
  Exploiting induced resistance for trait enhancement in hydroponically-grown crops
  Dr E Luna-Diez
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Due to their increasing unsuitability and the fact that they are increasingly looked down upon socially, the use of pesticides in agricultural fields has been highly legislated.
  Impact of increasing environmental CO2 on plant immunity
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr E Luna-Diez, Dr G Kettles
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Global climate change, including anthropogenic activity, has raised atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) level significantly (~40%) from the pre-industrial era.
  Epigenetics of neonicotinoids in an important insect pollinator
  Dr E Mallon, Dr E Rosato
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
This project will contribute to assessing an important threat to food crop pollination by quantifying, for the first time, the epigenetic effects of neonicotinoids on bumblebees.
