  How does rising atmospheric CO2 change the productivity of crops and trees?
  Prof C P Osborne
Applications accepted all year round
Professor Colin Osborne, Department of Animal and Plant Sciences, University of Sheffield, Sheffield, UK. New research in the lab investigates how plant growth is controlled by the supply of carbon from photosynthesis (source strength) verses the demand for carbon in growing tissues (sink strength).
  Functional Significance of Al hyper-accumulation in Tropical Forest Trees
  Dr D Burslem, Dr Y Arn Teh
Applications accepted all year round
Numerous plant species take up and store high concentrations of Al from the soil system, despite the toxicity of Al3+ to plant metabolism.
  Using drone imagery to manage tree failure hazards
  Dr A Blackburn, Dr D Whyatt
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Tree failures, which typically occur during severe storms, regularly cause severe disruption to transport and power networks.
  Darwin’s Tree in the 21st Century (HUBERKU19SF)
  Dr K Huber
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
Understanding how disparate structures such as galaxies, languages, and genomes have evolved has the potential to shed new light into the early universe, human migration, and potentially lethal diseases such as cancer.
  MRC Precision Medicine DTP: Blood flow and solute transport in human placental vascular networks: an in silico approach to characterizing pregnancy pathologies
  Research Group: Centre for Medical Informatics
  Dr M Bernabeu, Dr T Krueger
Application Deadline: 8 April 2019
Background. The human placenta performs diverse functions later taken on by several different organs. In particular, it mediates the exchange of vital solutes, including respiratory gases and nutrients, between the mother and the developing fetus.
  Urban Forest: testing tree performance to future hotter and drier conditions
  Dr P Rymer, Prof S Power, Prof M Tjoelker
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
The Hawkesbury Institute for the Environment (HIE) is a research institute within Western Sydney University. HIE has rapidly become a research leader in environmental and ecological research, with a strong reputation for delivering research outcomes of the highest quality.
  Up the apples and pears! Precision management of orchards to increase fruit production sustainably
  Dr A Blackburn
Application Deadline: 25 March 2019
Be in at the start of a revolution in fruit production! While precision agriculture is becoming established for arable crops, such approaches have yet to be developed in the production of top fruit such as apples and pears.
  Decision Automation for Orchards and Vineyards
  Prof A Werner
Applications accepted all year round
Decision Automation for Orchards and Vineyards is an interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary project on sensing and understanding of high-value fruit canopies in commercial orchards or vineyards to learn and train AI-tools of manual activities from experienced staff with the intention to support decision making of staff and later robots.
