Funded PhD studentship in microbial ecology and evolution: Unravelling the ecology and evolution of abundant but unexplored microbes

Unravelling the ecology and evolution of abundant but unexplored microbes. A 4-year PhD studentship in microbial ecology, starting in October 2021 or in February 2022, is now open for application at the University of Aberdeen, Scotland, UK. Read more

Towards a genuine grain revolution: mapping the current socio-ecological landscape of heritage grain production in the UK

The UK grain production sector is facing existential challenges. While the conventional sector, dependent on fossil fuels and toxic agrichemicals, is unsustainable and increasingly unreliable, modern organic grain production also has problems due to climate change. Read more

Linking land management with fungal diversity, plant growth and nutrient uptake

About the project. The symbiosis between arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi and terrestrial plants is one of the most widespread and successful plant symbioses on Earth, one that includes the majority of food crops. Read more

Experimental approaches to the evolution of anisogamy in a single celled alga

  Research Group: Centre for Evolutionary Biology
We are looking for a talented student to conduct their PhD on the evolutionary biology of anisogamy. Anisogamy is the difference in size between male and female gametes and is the driver of sexual selection and the evolution of the sexes. Read more

Controlling Bacillus spores in dairy powders; factors affecting behaviour during processing conditions

Applications are invited for a PhD Walsh Scholarship Project focusing on Bacillus spore control during dairy processing. Spore forming bacteria in dairy processing are of particular concern due to their low tolerance of acceptability as both a safety and quality concern. Read more

Improving yield stability in wheat: new tools for analysis and understanding

NIAB. and the. University of Cambridge. Project Summary. Farming challenge and industry need. Farmers consistently mention that yield stability is an important consideration in choosing which variety to grow, and as a major factor contributing to volatility in financial planning for their businesses.

Developing methods to quantify the potential for greenhouse gas removal using bioenergy - carbon capture and storage to speed up the establishment and uptake of perennial Bio-energy crops.

Background. Crop yield and soil carbon turnover models are parameterized by using data from carefully controlled and measured field and lab experiments and when used spatially in predictive mode are driven by existing spatial data sets of weather, climate, soil types and land use at various scales.
