  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.

  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Prof K. Field, Prof C.L. Peacock, Prof P Chapman, Prof J Holden
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Loss of soil organic carbon (SOC) is one of the most pressing challenges of the 21st Century, contributing to climate change, reducing soil fertility and capability for growing crops, reducing water holding capacity and increasing erosion which increases flood risk.
  Live long and prosper – how to survive extended dormancy
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP

  What is the functional mechanism underlying the impacts of ambient temperature on fertility, health, and development in outdoor living sows and offspring?
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Prof L Collins, Prof P Chapman, Dr N Forde
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change is predicted to increase the frequency of temperature extremes in future. This has the potential to impact agri-food production in many ways at a time when there is also a need to increase the sustainability of production methods.
  Assessing the Environmental Impacts of Vertical Farming
  Dr N Cowan, Dr D Reay
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Substantial claims have been made for Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) systems such as vertical farming as an integral part of future food security.
  Understanding how digital technologies can lead to the transfer of agricultural innovation
  Dr G Watmough, Dr C Barnes

Summary. Understanding how knowledge is created and shared in rural farming communities and identifying if this can be digitalised for improved decision making.
  The cost of being well-defended: How leaf herbivores make flowers stink and what plants can do about it
  Dr S Campbell
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants use a diverse array of traits to repel or kill pests and pathogens. Following attack, a sophisticated hormonal signaling system regulates the production of defensive metabolites, allowing plants to fine-tune their responses to specific enemies and environments.
