  Food insecurity, risk and resilience in low income households
  Research Group: Food security and cold storage
  Dr E Frew, Prof J Bryson
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Background. Food insecurity is defined as not having reliable access to sufficient affordable and nutritious food. It affects 41% of families worldwide and leads to negative health and psychosocial outcomes in children and adults.

  Integrating low-cost Wireless Sensor Networks into hydrological risk governance for community-based disaster resilience building in developing countries
  Research Group: Climate change
  Prof D M Hannah, Prof N Cassidy
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
According to the World Bank (2016), globally natural disasters force 26M people into poverty and cost US$520B in losses each year.

  Taking the pulse of Mother Ganga – Identifying hotspots and hot moments of microplastic freshwater pollution at unprecedented scale
  Research Group: Water availability/cleanliness
  Dr I Lynch, Prof S Krause
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Besides the many technological benefits of living in the “plastic age”, the plethora of today’s plastic products, their unsustainable use and high durability cause severe pollution risks with major uncertainties regarding their environmental and human health risks which has understandably lead to considerable public health concerns.

  Validating Cenozoic records of deep-sea ostracod diversity
  Dr I Boomer
Applications accepted all year round
Ostracods are microscopic, bivalved crustaceans that have a long fossil record in marine and non-marine habitats. The existence of deep-sea ostracod assemblages in today’s oceans have been known since the 19th century Challenger expedition.
  Total Atmospheric Emissions from the Biosphere
  Dr W J Bloss, Dr L Kramer
Applications accepted all year round
The dominant source of hydrocarbons to the atmosphere is vegetation – biogenic volatile organic compounds or BVOCs. In the atmosphere, BVOCs undergo chemical processing, leading to the formation of secondary pollutants such as ozone and organic aerosol particles, affecting human and environmental health and climate.
  Isotope-enabled climate modelling to better understand long-term rainfall dynamics in North Africa
  Dr P Hopcroft, Dr M Widmann, Dr G C LECKEBUSCH
Applications accepted all year round
Project highlights. Study climate in a region that is particularly vulnerable to future change. Use isotope-enabled and high-resolution climate model simulations to investigate how the Sahara became ‘Green’ 9000-4000 years ago.
  How will global crop production develop under climate change? Improving our predictive capability.
  Dr T Pugh, Prof M Tausz
Applications accepted all year round
Crop yields are highly sensitive to climate, with even relatively moderate climate change, such as that aimed for by the Paris agreement, placing future food security in doubt (Pugh et al., 2016).
