  Development of formulations incorporating functional excipients for the oral delivery of insecticidal peptides/dsRNA into insect pests
  Mr S Hall
Application Deadline: 7 April 2019
Most insecticidal peptide toxins are not active or with diminished activity when taken orally, which hampered their practical use to control insect pests.
  Evaluation of the properties of organic substrates following use in insect bioconversion systems
  Mr S Hall
Application Deadline: 7 April 2019
Following development of insect larvae organic rearing substrates can be used as fertilisers. The properties of this remaining substrate are poorly defined and functional claims have been made without robust evidence.
  Developing a molecular toolkit for breeding of the black soldier fly, Hermetia illucens
  Mr S Hall
Application Deadline: 7 April 2019
Insects can provide a source of protein for animal feed and other high value products. There has been minimal research on the selection of insect populations with desirable traits for use in this emerging industry.
  Do rural-dwellers experience cancer symptoms differently? A mixed methods PhD project using the USEFUL (a community-based cohort assessing prevalence and response to potential cancer symptoms)
  Prof P Murchie, Dr J Allan, Dr S Fielding
Application Deadline: 29 March 2019
1. Background to the project. Scottish people living further from key healthcare facilities have less chance of prompt cancer diagnosis and poorer cancer survival than those living closer-by[1].
  Bio-plastic for Food packing
  Mr S Hall
Application Deadline: 7 April 2019
The aim of this project is to investigate a new means of producing fully biodegradable bioplastics for food packaging using CO2 and Agri-food waste as feedstock.
  Integrated sensing technologies for rapid tree health assessment
  Mr S Hall
Application Deadline: 7 April 2019
UK tree health is under pressure from invasive pests/diseases and climate change. Monitoring is required to understand ecological impacts and for public safety.
  Investigating the potential of Rapid Evaporative Ionization Mass Spectrometry (REIMS) using the iKnife for real-time identification of quarantine pest
  Mr S Hall
Application Deadline: 7 April 2019
The first line of defence against the movement of pathogens/pests across borders is the inspection service, who look for quarantine organisms which they send to the laboratory for identification.
  Physical activity, energy expenditures, and time use in agriculture and rural livelihood
  Dr G Zanello
Applications accepted all year round
The limited uptake of agricultural innovations with proven productivity-enhancing potential and the translation of productivity increases into improvements in nutrition are two major development challenges facing Low and Middle Income Countries (LMICs).
  Dr Ros Hague PhD studentship: Understanding climate change narratives in Central Asia
  Dr M Poberezhskaya
Application Deadline: 2 April 2019
Deng and Chen (2017. 47) state that ‘as a semi-arid and arid region, Central Asia is highly vulnerable to changes in climate’.
