  FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Map the gap – making palm oil more sustainable by mapping yield gaps across tropical landscapes
  Dr T Jucker
Application Deadline: 17 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT. When it comes to producing vegetable oil, oil palm is king. Up to 10 times more productive than rival crops, today oil palm accounts for one third of the global supply of fats and oils.
  PhD in Ecology and Environment: how ecosystems, and the species they contain, respond to environmental change and how to reduce and mitigate adverse impacts
  Dr C Voigt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Environmental change threatens biodiversity, altering ecosystem processes and provision of ecosystem services. These environmental change pressures are accelerating due to growing human populations and accompanying climate change, land use, pollution and invasive species.
  Research opportunities in the Department of Environment and Geography

Funding Type

PhD Type

We offer an outstanding, dynamic and multidisciplinary environment in which to carry out PhD research. MPhil/PhD in Human Geography and Environment.
  Plant-insect interactions in a changing world
  Dr S Gripenberg
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Insects associated with plants comprise one of the most diverse groups of species on earth. Their impact on the ecology and evolution of their host plants is widely recognised, as is their contribution to a number of important ecosystem functions.
  The genetics/genomics of adaptive evolutionary change
  Dr N Nadeau
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The basic process of evolution by natural selection involves genetic changes that confer an advantage in survival or reproduction.
  Determining the agronomic and environmental impacts of organic products from agricultural and urban waste streams
  Prof D Chadwick, Prof D Jones
Application Deadline: 6 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Whilst many EU countries, e.g.
  Infectious disease and adaptation to global change
  Dr M Hall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Global change is predicted to result in both rapidly changing environments and dramatic changes in disease outbreaks. Key to predicting winners and losers under the nexus of infection and global change is any mismatch between hosts and pathogens in their thermal tolerances and adaptive potential.
  PhD in Plant Environmental Physiology
  Prof C P Osborne
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We invite applications for a PhD in the area of plant environmental physiology. Our research uses experiments with wild plants and field studies to address a range of questions about the biology of C 4 plants and savanna ecosystems.
  KESS 2 East Scholarship: Determining the potential for precision grazing to improve the resilience of livestock production systems.
  Dr P Williams, Dr J Gibbons
Application Deadline: 30 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a three-year research PhD studentship in improving the economic and environmental performance of pasture-based livestock production systems through better utilisation of grass.
  KESS 2 East Scholarship: Strategies for meeting targets for ammonia emissions and nitrate leaching reduction for Welsh beef and sheep farms
  Prof D Chadwick, Dr P Williams
Application Deadline: 30 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a three-year research PhD studentship that focuses on strategies for reducing ammonia emissions and nitrate leaching for Welsh beef and sheep farms.
  FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Clove Production, Crop Diversity and Biodiversity
  Prof T Caro
Application Deadline: 17 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT. Cloves are central to Pemba Island, Tanzania, sometimes grown as a monoculture, but also with native and introduced species.
  FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Function and development of superhydrophilic slippery plant surfaces
  Dr U Bauer
Application Deadline: 17 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT. The trapping surfaces of carnivorous pitcher plants are unusually wettable and turn extremely slippery for insects when wet.
  FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: How can farming methods help to mitigate climate change?
  Dr G Barker
Application Deadline: 17 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT. Global temperatures are likely to increase by 1.5°C compared to pre-industrial levels by 2030-2052.
  FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Identifying DNA sequences in crops with the potential to reduce soil erosion
  Prof C S Grierson
Application Deadline: 17 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT. We wish to understand how plants help hold roots and soil together. This is important because crops have major effects on soil erosion rates and the fertility of land in cultivation.
  FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Light control of leaf senescence
  Prof K Franklin
Application Deadline: 17 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT. Leaf senescence reduces the quality and postharvest shelf life of crops. Delaying this process is therefore a key objective for reducing waste in the food chain.
