  Understanding and predicting the effects of climate change on European yields of oilseed rape (PENFIELDJ20DTP)
  Dr S Penfield
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change is now widely understood to be impacting food supplies. Ensuring future food security will require understanding how climate change will affect crop yields in different agricultural systems and the design of appropriate measures for adaptation.
  How will air pollution and climate change combine to impact future global food supply?
  Dr L Emberson, Dr F Hayes
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The record high temperatures and extended droughts experienced across much of the northern hemisphere during the summer of 2018 serve as a stark reminder of the severe impacts climate change will cause arable agriculture.
  How do smallholder farmers’ climate change adaptations impact upon local food safety and nutrition in Africa?
  Prof L Stringer, Prof Y Gong
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There are approximately 33 million smallholder farms in sub-Saharan Africa, representing 80% of the region’s farms. Climate change has increasingly been highlighted as a major threat to smallholder production and food security, both globally and at the local scale.
  Adaptive management of stochastic parasite challenge in animals under climate change
  Prof E Morgan, Dr M Robinson
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Climate change is causing greater variation in conditions for parasite transmission, and increased unpredictability in disease outbreaks in farmed and other animals.
  Making climate change work for crop yield potential
  Dr L Dixon, Dr T.A. Bennett, Prof B H Davies
Application Deadline: 15 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project summary. We know temperature affects how plants grow but we do not understand the effects of temperature fluctuations, particularly those that are occurring outside the classic seasonal norm.
  Adventures in carbon neutral farming: mitigating potent greenhouse gas emissions from soils with rock dust
  Prof D Beerling, Dr U Skiba, Dr M Val Martin, Dr D Epihov
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Rationale and importance. As Greta Thunberg reminds us, the world faces a climate emergency and addressing global climate change is one of the greatest and most urgent challenges facing humanity.
  Integrating climate and species modelling to predict movements of migratory and nomadic birds in sub-Saharan Africa
  Dr M Dallimer, Prof A Challinor
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nomadic and migratory bird species are common and widespread in semi-arid regions of the world, including sub-Saharan Africa.
  Chemical biology meets microbiology to combat climate change (GATESU20DTP)
  Dr A Gates, Dr Z Waller
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

As well as carbon dioxide (CO2), other important climate-active gases are known to drive global warming. Importantly, nitrous oxide (N2O), is a greenhouse gas with 300-times greater global warming power than CO2 and it also contributes to the destruction of the ozone layer.
  PhD in agricultural biology - forecasting management and economics of climate change
  Prof R Freckleton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The world faces a major challenge to ensure the security of food supplies in the face of threats resulting from climate change, growing population and the development of resistance to pesticides.
  Plant-microbial interactions: legume-rhizobial cover crops under drought and climate change
  Prof D Cameron, Dr E Harrison, Prof J Gray, Dr C Chater
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

To develop sustainable agriculture under climate change we need to tackle CO2 emissions and drought stress. Legume-rhizobial cover crops (leys) enhance carbon and nitrogen in soils, reducing vulnerability to drought and water pollution.
