  SCENARIO - Soil microbial carbon metabolism for climate positive soils
  Dr E J Shaw, Dr M Redmile-Gordon, Dr R Griffiths
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Soils are essential to human well-being because they perform multiple functions that underpin the provision of ecosystem services that sustain life and regulate climate.
  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.
  Remodeling of plant proteolytic systems to boost biopharming and disease resistance
  Dr T Bozkurt, Dr F Guder
Application Deadline: 12 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Autophagy is a self-eating machinery central to cellular homeostasis and coping with stress responses. In addition to facilitating removal of unwanted/foreign proteins in the lysosome, specialized forms of selective autophagy are co-opted to contribute to plant immunity.
  Optimizing yield and flavour consistency of rocket greens
  Dr M Lundgren
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Perennial wall rocket (Diplotaxis tenuifolia; Brassicaceae) is becoming an increasingly important food crop for its high nutrient content, ease of use in ready-made salads, and environmentally friendly perennial life history strategy.
  Roots to resilience: climate-proofing crop yields within future salad production
  Prof I Dodd
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change threatens UK lettuce production by decreasing rainfall and increasing plant water loss. Lettuce plants are initially raised in small peat blocks in a nursery, then transplanted into the fields.
  Developing next-generation multiplexed assays for in-field monitoring of crop pests and physiological status (IAF2004)
  Prof W Willats
Application Deadline: 14 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Crop production faces significant challenges in relation to sustainability, resilience and profitability.
  Does crop diversification influence the physical and chemical traits that attract pests and beneficial insects?
  Prof J Koricheva
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Crop diversification strategies such as intercropping and agroforestry are increasingly promoted as a means to enhance the sustainability of agriculture and ensure a stable food supply.
  SCENARIO - Maximising the environmental benefits of gardens through optimal planting choices and understanding of occupants’ engagement
  Dr J Bishop, Prof M Lukac
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

What we plant and how we manage our gardens can have a significant environmental impact. Domestic gardens cover 15-25% of area in most UK towns and cities, and recent research (1,2) links garden plant characteristics with provision of ecosystem services.
  SCENARIO - The domestication of Amazon rainforests by pre-Columbian societies
  Dr F Mayle, Dr JS Singarayer
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The extent to which pre-Columbian (pre-AD1492) human societies transformed Amazonia from a virgin wilderness into a domesticated landscape is one of the most contentious debates in tropical ecology.
