  Dr P Walley
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Food Security has risen to the top of the international agenda following recent spikes in the price of food and the perceived growing threat to future supplies (see, e.g., the “G8 Action on Food Security and Nutrition” http://www.state.gov/s/globalfoodsecurity/190282.htm).
  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.
  Synthetic Resistance to Potato Blight
