  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: 22 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: 22 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: Do plant communities manipulate soil for drought resistance?
  Prof P Hallett, Prof M Emmerson
Application Deadline: 22 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.
  QUADRAT DTP: Modelling metagenomics-derived microbial traits in soils under climate change
  Dr A Malik, Dr T Caruso
Application Deadline: 22 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: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Increases in soil salinity and sodicity are major restrictions on global crop production.
  QUADRAT DTP: The cost of being a fussy eater – Oligolectic pollinators and environmental change
  Dr F Manfredini, Dr L Scott
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Insect pollinators provide fundamental ecosystem services to natural and human-dominated communities. Different pollinators have different abilities to cope with environmental changes, due to differences in their behaviour, physiology and life-history traits.
  QUADRAT DTP: The potential impact of Zero Budget Natural Farming in India on food availability, poverty alleviation and soil degradation
  Prof J Smith, Dr C Meharg
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Under business-as-usual, by 2050, 60% of India’s population is likely to experience severe deficiencies in calories, digestible protein and fat [1].
  The Impact of Changes in Management, Climate and Sea Level on Blue Carbon and Greenhouse Gas Emissions in Coastal Wetlands
  Prof J Smith, Dr A Brand, Prof D Paterson, Prof J Baxter
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Coastal wetlands provide numerous critical ecosystem services, including storm surge protection, fisheries production, improvement of water quality, and carbon sequestration, and are potentially one of the most effective ecosystems on the planet for slowing global warming.
