  FoodBioSystems DTP - Biostimulants improve soil and plant conditions to enhance the health-relatedproperties of fresh produce
  Prof J Rickson
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Growing enough food to feed 10 billion people by 2050 is a global challenge. However, less attention is paid to the changing nutritional quality of food and how this affects human health.

  Type 1 Resistant Starch: A journey through the gut (EDWARDSQ20CASE)
  Dr C Edwards, Prof A Narbad
Application Deadline: 23 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most adults in the UK are overweight or obese, and healthier processed foods are urgently needed. One solution is to replace ‘available starch’ in the diet with ‘resistant starch’ that is not readily digested to glucose in the upper-gut, and therefore enters the colon.
  FoodBioSystems DTP - What are the mechanisms driving niche specialisation within rumen plantassociated microbiomes?
  Prof C Creevey, Prof A Kingston-Smith, Prof S Huws, Dr G W Griffith
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Niche specialization is the process by which, through natural selection, a species becomes better adapted to the specific characteristics of a particular habitat.
  Plant responses to stress, metabolites for health and fuel from cell walls.
  Prof A Devoto
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Projects are available in the following areas. Stress responses in crops and sustainable biomass production and processing. The project aims at elucidating several aspects of the control of plant defences and to identify environmentally friendly forms of plant protectants, leading to enhanced crop yields.
