  QUADRAT DTP: Do plant communities manipulate soil for drought resistance?
  Prof P Hallett, Prof M Emmerson
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants have differing abilities to engineer soil to make them more productive and stable under stress, but the mechanisms that underpin processes remain poorly understood, despite their significance to soil sustainability, food security and climate change.
  FoodBioSystems DTP - Using organic fertilisers to manipulate soil microbiology for improved nutrient bioavailability
  Dr M Pawlett, Dr T Sizmur, Dr E J Shaw, Prof J Harris
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Soils are essential to food production through the delivery of bioavailable nutrients required for crop growth.

  SCENARIO - Coatings for Agriculture: Food Security without a Microplastics Problem
  Dr P Roth, Dr M Al Sid Cheikh, Prof J Keddie
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Coatings applied directly onto seeds and leaves make pesticides and other active ingredients more effective, increase crop yields, and contribute to global food security.
  QUADRAT DTP CASE: Waste to Land - Differential priming of soil carbon driven by additions of organic wastes
  Dr L Mbadugha, Dr P Williams
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The application of organic wastes (from food and agricultural residues) to land is becoming an increasingly popular method of waste management, on both national and international scale.
  QUADRAT DTP: Automated soil profiling: identification of soil characteristics using Machine Learning and image analysis
  Dr Q Gan, Prof J McKinley
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Soil properties, such as porosity, bulk density, soil water contact are subjected to change due to complex interacting process, including physical, chemical and biological process.
  QUADRAT DTP: Modelling metagenomics-derived microbial traits in soils under climate change
  Dr A Malik, Dr T Caruso
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Microorganisms are critical in terrestrial carbon cycling because their growth and activity largely control the fate of recent plant carbon inputs as well as protected soil organic carbon (SOC).
  QUADRAT DTP: Optimising water saving management systems for rice grown in saline/sodic environments
  Dr G Norton, Prof A Meharg
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Increases in soil salinity and sodicity are major restrictions on global crop production.
