We have 16 Agricultural Technology PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships for Self-funded Students

Last chance to apply

The effect of traffic and tillage systems on greenhouse gas emissions from a unique long-term field laboratory

Project Background. The reduced need and intensity of tillage where compaction is avoided improves soil condition and soil function, and helps reduce soil greenhouse gas emissions. Read more

John Oldacre Foundation PhD Studentship in the Sociology and Politics of Agriculture and Food Systems Ref: 5123

Supervisors. Professor Matt Lobley . Professor Harry West . Dr Steve Emery. We are looking for PhD proposals on any social science issue related to the changing role of agriculture and the countryside relevant to the core research interests of the supervisors. Read more

Understanding the soil microbiome under controlled light conditions

Our research group is working within a consortium that is testing semi-transparent solar installations on crop growth-houses, to enhance biological and financial resilience in protected farming. Read more

Control of renewable energy / mechatronic / robotic systems

These projects are open to students worldwide, but have no funding attached. Therefore, the successful applicant will be expected to fund tuition fees at the relevant level (home or international) and any applicable additional research costs. Read more

MSc by Research: Signaling pathways controlling epidermal development in cereals

Plants living on land face brutal threats from pests, dehydration and temperature. To survive and thrive, land plants evolved a waxy ‘cuticle’ and distinctive epidermal cells such as gas pores and defensive barbs. Read more

MSc by Research: Jasmonate control of barley development

From the earliest farmers to modern plant breeders, humans have continually modified the body plan of cereals, sometimes drastically, to generate higher grain yields. Read more

MSc by Research: The Generation Gap – understanding tissue communication during grain development

Cereal grain provides more calories than any other source to our diet, making grain production vital to food security. We study grain development in barley, a globally important cereal, and a powerful genetic model system. Read more

MSc by Research: Regulation of Architecture in Barley

Plant architecture, or body plan, plays a key role in determining grain yield of crop plants. However, we have little understanding of the molecular genetic basis of architecture in the temperate cereals such as barley (Hordeum vulgare L.), especially in comparison to the warm weather crops such as rice (Oryza sativa). Read more

MSc by Research: Genetic interactions and novel genes that regulate lignin biosynthesis and straw quality in barley

Lignin is a major component of plant cell walls, and has a significant influence on the digestibility and uses of plant biomass. The lignin biosynthesis pathway has been one of the most intensively studied. Read more

Crop Type Classification Using Optical Remote Sensing

Crop type mapping at the field level is necessary for a variety of applications in agricultural monitoring and food security. In this thesis, the goal is to develop a suitable deep neural network architecture that could detect different crop types in remote sensing images. Read more
