  Soil health metrics for sustainable agricultural systems
  Dr S Haefele
Application Deadline: 15 April 2019
Why is this project important?. Soil is the foundation of all agricultural systems. It is a complex biophysical system of aggregated particles and pore networks that, if managed carefully, provides plants with the medium for roots to grow and extract water and nutrients in order to produce food and fibre.
  The effects of soil management practices on CAZyme expression by soil microbial communities and their influence on soil structure and crop production
  Mr S Hall
Application Deadline: 7 April 2019
Understanding links between CAZyme expression by soil microbial communities and crop management and production. The project will use metagenomics to identify microbial communities in soil and their role in carbohydrate cycling that contribute to crop nutrition and resilience of soil structure.
  Manipulation of the soil microbial community in stabilising SOM to improve soil function
  Dr S O'Rourke, Prof N Holden
Application Deadline: 1 April 2019
Sustainable food production is top of the global policy agenda.
  Does CO2 Enrichment of Temperate Forests also Affect Soil N Cycling and the Emission of Nitrous Oxide (N2O)? - MScR in Global Environmental Challenges
  Dr J House, Dr F Sgouridis
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019
About the Project. Increasing atmospheric CO2 concentrations in temperate forests may affect soil nitrogen (N) cycling processes due to the increased demand for nitrogen availability by tree photosynthesis.
  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.
  4 year Devenish Doctoral Training Programme
Devenish is a global agri technology company, delivering sustainable and innovative nutritional products and solutions for the feed and food industry and for human health.
  Can Glacial Flour Stimulate N Cycling in Croplands? - MScR in Global Environmental Challenges
  Dr J L Wadham, Dr F Sgouridis
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019
About the Project. Glacial flour produced from the erosive force of glaciers contains a multitude of minerals that if applied to cropland soils it could chemically weather in situ, potentially increasing soil fertility and reducing the need for chemical fertilisers.
  Unlocking past and present climatic and anthropogenic drivers of environmental change influencing Miri-Sibuti Coral Reefs National Park (Borneo, Malaysia)
  Prof J Zinke
Applications accepted all year round
Study a set of unique coral cores covering up to 200 years of ocean climate history from Miri-Sibuti Coral Reefs National Park (MSCRNP).
  Causes and consequences of Biolgeochemical mismatches during drought
  Dr U Nielsen, Dr T Jeffries, Dr Y Carrilo
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
RESEARCH ENVIRONMENT. The Hawkesbury Institute for the Environment (HIE) is a research institute within Western Sydney University.
  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.
