  Optimizing soil nitrogen in babyleaf salad crops for sustainable crop production
  Dr E J Shaw
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The use of synthetic nitrogen fertilizers has been responsible for increased food production more than any other input to farming.
  Understanding and exploiting stoichiogenomics to harness reactive nitrogen in sustainable food production systems
  Dr M Doherty, Dr Katherine Duncan
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Aquaculture is the fastest growing food production sector in the world, however global aquaculture needs to double in size over the next decade to keep pace with the ever-rising demand for quality protein.
  Precision Apiculture: enhancing the health and effectiveness of managed honeybees for soft fruit production
  Prof S G Potts
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The annual benefits of pollination for soft fruit production in the UK is worth £490M. This studentship will use innovative research approaches to develop a novel tool to improve the health of honeybee colonies and optimally deploy hives to maximise benefits to soft fruit production.
  Growing systems for sustainable soils and societies: Investigating the impact of tillage type andproduction inputs on crop performance, soil health, below-ground biodiversity and carbon buildingcapacity. (IAF2006)
  Dr J Cooper, Dr D George
Application Deadline: 14 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Current social, environmental and political drivers will shape the future of global agriculture and place increased emphasis on our cropping systems to deliver healthy, biodiverse soils that can simultaneously store carbon and feed a growing human population.
  Roots to resilience: climate-proofing crop yields within future salad production
  Prof I Dodd
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change threatens UK lettuce production by decreasing rainfall and increasing plant water loss. Lettuce plants are initially raised in small peat blocks in a nursery, then transplanted into the fields.
  Ecophysiological and molecular mechanisms of weed seed bank persistence
  Prof G Leubner, Dr C Liu, Dr A Seville
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Weeds are a major threat to modern agriculture. For example, blackgrass is considered the most destructive cereal weed in European agriculture.
  Molecular mechanisms underlying seed priming and longevity of Apiaceae crop seeds with morphological dormancy
  Prof G Leubner
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The overall aim of the project is to investigate the "Molecular mechanisms underlying seed priming and longevity of Apiaceae crop seeds with morphological dormancy".
  PhD in plant soil interactions
  Prof T J Daniell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

  Dr M McAinsh
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Damaged crops cost the UK potato industry over £200 per hectare. Although disease contributes to crop losses, internal tuber defects that are undetectable from the outside (e.g.

  Dr Z Qian
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Following the Government heating and energy target guidelines to improved building performance it is important to consider building design and human activities when examining the impact of changing microclimate due to climate change.
