  Data Analytics For Pore Water Pressure - New Tools For Sustainable Groundwater and Engineering Projects
  Prof W Timms
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This new PhD scholarship will develop advanced pore pressure analysis for groundwater systems with engineering applications in civil construction, mining operations and water supply systems.
  Tracking changes in Archean ocean chemistry: Experimental constraints on the magnitude of stable isotope fractionation during the development of banded iron formations.
  Dr A McCoy West
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

PhD projects which will place new constraints on the evolution of the early Earth, which encompass both high and low temperature geochemistry, isotope geochemistry and igneous/metamorphic petrology are available at Monash University, Melbourne, Australia.
  Tracking changes in Archean ocean chemistry: New insights by applying a coupled stable isotope approach in banded iron formations
  Dr A McCoy West
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

PhD projects which will place new constraints on the evolution of the early Earth, which encompass both high and low temperature geochemistry, isotope geochemistry and igneous/metamorphic petrology are available at Monash University, Melbourne, Australia.
  PhD in Plants and Microbes: crop production and protection, the interaction between plants and other plants, pests and pathogens, and soils, and the interactions of ecosystems with global change
  Dr C Voigt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants underpin life on Earth. In Sheffield, world leading plant research is undertaken across all scales from the molecular level through to the leaf and root, whole plant and ecosystem.
  ‘Cos’ it’s worth it! Investigating how to mitigate ozone damage to salad crops
  Dr K Ashworth
Application Deadline: 17 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ground-level ozone is a powerful oxidant that causes severe damage to plant cells. In fast-growing leafy salad crops, the first symptom is often visible injury (discolouration or spotting of leaves) which can be difficult to distinguish from signs of nutrient deficiency.
  Bridging the crop-soil-water phosphorus gap: Managing phosphorus for sustainable crop production and sustainable water
  Dr J Davies
Application Deadline: 17 February 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.
  iPotato: Using smart technologies to spot internal defects in potato
  Dr M McAinsh
Application Deadline: 20 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Damaged crops cost the UK potato industry over £200 per hectare. Although disease contributes to crop losses, internal tuber defects that are undetectable from the outside (e.g.
  The role of lateral and tree transport in methane cycling in tropical peatlands
  Dr S Pangala
Application Deadline: 30 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tropical peatlands in Southeast Asia have sequestered carbon over thousands of years and are an important global carbon stock.
  “Talking” trees and the ecology of underground fungal super-highways
  Prof D Johnson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Introduction. Recent exciting discoveries have shown that plants respond to herbivore-induced signals from neighbours via underground fungal networks1-3.
  Strategies for Increasing Crop Stress Tolerance
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Dr G Johnson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Humanity is facing a growing food crisis – the “perfect storm” of growing world populations and changing climates mean we urgently need to increase crop productivity, including by increasing environmental stress tolerance.
