  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.
  Carbon sequestration potential of apple rootstocks: the role of root recalcitrance, rhizodeposition, and the rhizosphere microbiome (Ref: CTP_FCR_2019_5)
  Dr F O'Brien, Prof M Tibbett, Prof M Lukac
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
The Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC ) have awarded a Collaborative Training Partnership (CTP) grant to a consortium led by Berry Gardens Growers Ltd and NIAB EMR.
  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.
  (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
Project Highlights. Understand microbiology of lignin degradation in soil. Identify novel lignin-degrading bacteria and enzymes. Application to resource recovery from landfill waste.
  Soil microbes to mitigate climate change
  Dr J Whitaker, Prof N Ostle
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Why is this project important?. Human populations are expected to increase by 50% to 9 billion by 2050 as climate change continues – together these changes will place unprecedented pressure on the Earth’s finite and fragile natural resources.
  Sustainable Management of Agricultural Soils: Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emission and Enhancing Natural Fertility
  Dr S Ullah, Prof S Krause
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Soil is fundamental to life and is vulnerable to losses in stored carbon (C) and productivity, particularly under intensive agriculture.1 For example, 133…
  Multi-functional Agroecosystems: Exploiting Biodiversity for Sustainable Production
  Prof M Emmerson, Dr Y Arn Teh
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project will be supervised by Professor Mark Emmerson of Queen’s University School of Biological Sciences and by Dr Yit Arn Teh of University of Aberdeen’s Institute of Biological and Environmental Sciences.
