  Modelling soil erosion and soil carbon dynamics in agricultural systems
  Dr M Galdos, Prof P Chapman
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Besides supporting food, feed, fuel and fibre production, soils provide ecosystems services such as storing carbon, filtering water and maintaining biodiversity.
  SCENARIO: Engineering soil microbial carbon metabolism for multiple environmental benefits
  Dr E J Shaw, Dr R Griffiths, Dr M Redmile-Gordon, Dr E Armenise
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Soils are essential to human well-being because they perform multiple functions that underpin the provision of ecosystem services that sustain life and regulate climate.
  The Soil Microbial Black Box - Does What’s Inside Matter?
  Dr M Giles, Dr E Paterson, Prof L Baggs, Dr R Neilson
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
A single gram of soil can harbor in the order of 1010 bacteria and up to 52 000 individual species. However, the role of this diversity in regulating soil functions (e.g.
  Structure and function of soil microbial communities in contrasting biomes at The Eden Project
  Dr K. Field, Prof P E Urwin, Dr T Helgason
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
"The Eden Project is a unique global garden situated in a reclaimed Kaolinite quarry approximately 3 miles from St Austell, Cornwall.
  Bridging the gap between environment and health – exposure assessment of potentially harmful agents in soil
  Dr P Hooda
Applications accepted all year round
Our current understanding of soil exposure in the UK population is extremely limited. The current risk assessment paradigm makes large assumptions based on very uncertain data to estimate direct exposures via soil ingestion or dust inhalation.
  How does woodland creation influence below-ground biodiversity, and soil and ecosystem functions?
  Prof K Park, Dr E Vanguelova, Dr C Wilson, Dr K Watts
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
This PhD will examine how woodland creation influences below-ground biodiversity, soil stabilisation, long term carbon sequestration, nutrient cycling, and the time-scales required for the development of these processes.
  (BBSRC DTP) Grazer-induced modifications of plant-soil microbiome associations and their influence on grassland community dynamics and functioning
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Prof R Bardgett, Dr M Semchenko, Prof D Johnson
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
A major challenge facing grassland farmers is the need to maintain, or bolster, essential soil functions that underpin forage production and quality.
  (BBSRC DTP) Improving phosphorus use management in UK grasslands through soil-plant interactions
  Dr V Niasar, Prof D Johnson, Dr S Lee
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This ambitious project will lead to a major shift in how soil phosphorus (P), is managed in UK grasslands.
  Towards more sustainable use of phosphorus in UK grasslands considering soil-plant interactions
  Dr V Niasar, Prof D Johnson, Dr S Lee
Applications accepted all year round
This ambitious project will lead to a major shift in how soil phosphorus (P), is managed in UK grasslands.
  Understanding microbial lignin degradation in soil
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Prof T Bugg, Prof E M H Wellington
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
