  Understanding and predicting the effects of climate change on European yields of oilseed rape (PENFIELDJ20DTP)
  Dr S Penfield
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change is now widely understood to be impacting food supplies. Ensuring future food security will require understanding how climate change will affect crop yields in different agricultural systems and the design of appropriate measures for adaptation.
  Genomics of Adaption to Climate Change in Rice
  Dr M Chapman, Dr M Carine, Dr L Williams
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Feeding a growing population sustainably in the face of climate change requires us to resolve the genetic basis of crop tolerance to stress (especially temperature, precipitation and edaphic factors).
  How will air pollution and climate change combine to impact future global food supply?
  Dr L Emberson, Dr F Hayes
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The record high temperatures and extended droughts experienced across much of the northern hemisphere during the summer of 2018 serve as a stark reminder of the severe impacts climate change will cause arable agriculture.
  The impacts of climate change on pollinator-plant interactions
  Dr R Whitlock, Dr K L Evans, Dr C García
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change has pervasive impacts on biological diversity, determining species persistence, geographical distributions, trait expression and genetic composition.
  Impacts of climate change on growth of non-vascular vegetation
  Prof P Porada
Application Deadline: 30 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lichens, mosses and terrestrial algae / cyanobacteria (non-vascular vegetation) carry out important functions in various ecosystems around the world.
  Floral Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) signalling in response to air pollution and climate change
  Dr F Hayes, Dr K Ashworth
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Up to 88% of flowering plant species depend on insect pollinators. Although flowers and their visual cues are known to be important for pollinators, more recently it has been shown that VOCs are also important signals at distances of.
  Making climate change work for crop yield potential
  Dr L Dixon, Dr T.A. Bennett, Prof B H Davies
Application Deadline: 15 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project summary. We know temperature affects how plants grow but we do not understand the effects of temperature fluctuations, particularly those that are occurring outside the classic seasonal norm.
  Adventures in carbon neutral farming: mitigating potent greenhouse gas emissions from soils with rock dust
  Prof D Beerling, Dr U Skiba, Dr M Val Martin, Dr D Epihov
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Rationale and importance. As Greta Thunberg reminds us, the world faces a climate emergency and addressing global climate change is one of the greatest and most urgent challenges facing humanity.
  Abrupt climate change during the last deglaciation: linking records from Greenland to central Europe.
  Prof A Kemp, Prof PG Langdon, Dr J Whiteside
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The last deglaciation (16,000 – 11,000 years ago) was Earth’s most recent massive climate change but its dynamics are not adequately understood.
  Plant-microbial interactions: legume-rhizobial cover crops under drought and climate change
  Prof D Cameron, Dr E Harrison, Prof J Gray, Dr C Chater
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

To develop sustainable agriculture under climate change we need to tackle CO2 emissions and drought stress. Legume-rhizobial cover crops (leys) enhance carbon and nitrogen in soils, reducing vulnerability to drought and water pollution.
