  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.
  Facilitating the circular economy in India’s food security: the social, economic and agronomic barriers and opportunities of wastewater
  Dr K V Heal, Dr A Gathorne-Hardy, Dr H Gorringe
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project summary. This interdisciplinary project combines environmental and social science to quantify the potential benefits of wastewater for Indian agriculture, as well as understanding the social barriers to wastewater use, and identifying opportunities to overcome these.
  Ants as ecosystem engineers: the interaction between niche construction and land management
  Dr EJH Robinson, Dr K Redeker, Dr C Hawke
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for an enthusiastic and ambitious student to develop an exciting. project that will use applied field experiments to quantify the relationship.
  Dissecting quantitative variation in the plant circadian clock
  Prof S J Davis, Dr D Ezer, Dr M Knight
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The seasonal timing of growth is critical for plant performance. The circadian. clock holds a key place in such seasonal adjustment as crop adaptation to new.
  Does plant pathogen adaptation in environmental reservoirs and secondary host affect its virulence and risk for transmission?
  Dr V Friman, Prof M Brockhurst, Dr D Jeffares
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Even though opportunistic plant pathogens must survive in various natural. environments during transmission between hosts, this crucial part of their life-.
  How does soil microbial diversity impact upon above-ground drought tolerance in plants?
  Dr A Hodge, Dr J Ferrari, Prof J Gray
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microbes perform several key roles in soils including in the supply of many. nutrients through the degradation of soil organic matter, and can contribute to.
  Molecular mechanisms to reduce Arsenic in Rice
  Prof F J M Maathuis, Dr H V Isaacs
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Food security is under pressure all over the globe. Abiotic stress is one of the. largest threats to crop production and amongst these, crop contamination.
  The circadian clock in the ageing plant
  Dr D Ezer, Prof S J Davis
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants respond to environmental signals in a time-of-day dependent manner,. but we do not yet know how this process is affected by age.
  Pharmaceuticals in agriculture - Assessing the impacts of wastewater and irrigation on crop production and soil health
  Dr S Toet, Prof A Boxall, Dr A Singer
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Large amounts of pharmaceuticals are used globally for human and animal treatment. These substances are released to agricultural soils directly through animal excreta, via manure or sewage sludge when applied as fertiliser, and by irrigation of wastewater.
  Sustainable mountain soils in the face of change; impact of land-use and climate extremes
  Dr R Mills, Dr J Whitaker, Dr S Toet, Mr D Martin
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Do you want to help shape the future of our mountainous environments? Are you passionate about how our mountains can contribute to food production, safeguard water supply, and mitigate climate change? Do you want to do this whilst gaining cutting-edge skills? If so, this PhD is for you.
