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.
  Evaluating the effectiveness of rangeland resting initiatives in communal grazing systems in South Africa
  Dr J Bennett
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Currently, most rangeland systems in communal areas of South Africa are subject to limited collective management and tend to be continuously grazed as a result (Palmer and Bennett 2013).

  Prof M Salmeron-Sanchez, Prof M Dalby, Prof A Miller
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cells need three dimensional environments to grow and to differentiate, and thus efforts have been made to engineer materials that can display adhesion ligands, growth factors and that have controlled properties.
  Earthworms and sustainable agriculture
  Dr P J Watt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Worldwide, soils are in a poor state, through erosion, compaction and the loss of organic carbon, and so it is essential that we manage them in order to maintain the productivity of agricultural land.
