Agri-environment-climate schemes (AECS) are a voluntary policy mechanism to incentivise and compensate farmers for undertaking environmental measures as part of their land management.
  Sustaining partnership approaches – evaluating effectiveness, health and longevity of agri-environmental collaboratives
  Dr K Prager, Dr T Potts
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A multitude of partnerships have developed between actors from the farming, environment, conservation, community, business and government sectors.
  Does Stripping Topsoil of Carbon Cause Irreversible Physical Degradation?
  Prof P Hallett, Prof J Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Severe soil degradation is prevalent across much of sub-Saharan Africa, driven primarily by the depletion of carbon from the soil.
  Fostering Sustainability Through Organic Waste Re-Use in Sub Saharan Africa
  Prof J Smith, Dr D Feliciano
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Efficient re-use of organic wastes is of critical importance to the productivity of small-holder farm households in many parts of Sub-Saharan Africa (Smith et al., 2015).
  Influence of Plant Genetic Diversity on Biological Nitrification Inhibition
  Dr C Gubry-Rangin, Prof J Prosser
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nitrification is a crucial step of the nitrogen cycle as it oxidises ammonia into nitrate. This has important economic and environmental consequences, with important loss of nitrogen fertiliser, nitrate leaching into groundwater soil and nitrous oxide production.
  Supporting Healthy Honey Bees Against Varroa and Viruses: a Scientific Understanding for Practical Solutions
  Dr A Bowman, Dr J Sternberg
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is an increasing need for insect pollination for crop production worldwide. At the same time, there is a global crisis in honey bee health resulting in a shortage of managed bee colonies to satisfy the growing needs of food production.
