  Organic wastes and food, energy and water provision in Sub-Saharan Africa
  Dr J Smith, Prof P Hallett
Applications accepted all year round
Globally, over 2.8 billion people still rely on unsustainable solid biomass for cooking and heating, of which ~2.2 billion (78%) live in rural areas.
  Living in the dark: Impact of winter warming on ecosystem stability in the terrestrial high Arctic
  Prof D Chadwick
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
The high Arctic is warming at an alarming rate, disrupting soil carbon, nutrient and hydrological cycles. This is resulting in increased soil microbial activity with subsequent increases in nutrient availability and hence plant productivity and nutrient losses to the wider environment.

  Weathering of volcanic products in the tropical environment of the Panama Canal area
  Dr D Buchs, Dr P Renforth
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Project Background. Weathering of volcanic products in the tropical climate is key to the formation of soils that constitute a critical zone between the lithosphere and biosphere, are associated with significant geotechnical challenges and could possibly play a significant role in the global carbon budget.

  Do detritivores mediate soil health and ecosystem services in the bioenergy crop Miscanthus?
  Dr R Rowe, Dr J Whitaker, Dr S Toet, Dr M Prendergast-Miller
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
The perennial grass Miscanthus is a leading bioenergy feedstock grown in the UK and Europe, with the land area devoted to this crop increasing with growing investment in renewable energy solutions.
  Soil microbes to mitigate climate change
  Dr J Whitaker
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Human populations are expected to increase by 50% to 9 billion by 2050 as climate change continues – together these changes will place unprecedented pressure on the Earth’s finite and fragile natural resources.
