  FoodBioSystems DTP - Investigation into sustainability labelling of food and implications for the consumer and the food industry
  Dr A Mauchline, Prof M Dean
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. There is a real challenge to produce enough food in a sustainable way to feed the growing global population.
  FoodBioSystems DTP - Do cover crops increase the resilience and sustainability of the agri-food system?
  Dr T Sizmur, Dr J Hannam, Dr L Todman, Dr E J Shaw
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Our climate is changing, and our population is growing, but the soils upon which we need to grow food to feed the growing population are degraded.
  Bridging the crop-soil-water phosphorus gap: Managing phosphorus for sustainable crop production and sustainable water
  Dr J Davies
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Phosphorus (P) sits at the heart of our DNA and the centre of our food system as a widely used agricultural fertilizer. Increased use of P fertilizers over the past 60 years has supported food production and growing populations, but their use also presents us with a number of inter-related sustainability challenges.
  SCENARIO - Soil microbial carbon metabolism for climate positive soils
  Dr E J Shaw, Dr M Redmile-Gordon, Dr R Griffiths
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Soils are essential to human well-being because they perform multiple functions that underpin the provision of ecosystem services that sustain life and regulate climate.
  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 - Variation in forages for improved micronutrient nutrition in livestock
  Dr S Palmer, Dr S Stergiadis, Prof A Kingston-Smith, Mr P Billings
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Milk is a rich source of protein, calcium, iodine, magnesium and manganese, and is seen as a key mechanism via which health and nutrition can be improved in many countries, developed and developing alike.
