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.
  SEESALT: Novel ways to ’SEE’ coastal ’SALT’ marshes using low-cost drones and sensors
  Dr D Green, Dr D Mauquoy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Saltmarshes are found extensively along low wave energy coastlines resulting from fine sediment accumulation and vegetation establishment.
  QUADRAT DTP: Environmental ancient DNA analysis of Lateglacial and Early Holocene contexts in Ireland and Scotland
  Dr L Girdland Flink, Dr G Plunkett
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

This project aims to refine our understanding of Lateglacial and Early Holocene biodiversity and ecosystems in Scotland and Ireland using ancient DNA extracted from ancient sediments (sedimentary ancient DNA, or sedaDNA).
  FoodBioSystems DTP - Biostimulants improve soil and plant conditions to enhance the health-relatedproperties of fresh produce
  Prof J Rickson
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Growing enough food to feed 10 billion people by 2050 is a global challenge. However, less attention is paid to the changing nutritional quality of food and how this affects human health.
  FoodBioSystems DTP - Development of different natural biopesticide formulations of plant extracts for control of economically important cereal and grass diseases
  Prof N Magan, Dr G W Griffith, Dr A Medina Vaya, Dr S Palmer
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. In todays’ cropping systems, crop protection chemicals are used extensively to maintain crop productivity and reduce pest/disease damage.
  FoodBioSystems DTP - The effect of fruit and vegetable intake on health outcomes: does an apple aday still keep the doctor away?
  Prof J Woodside, Prof J Lovegrove, Dr A Nugent, Dr B Green
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Although increased fruit and vegetable intake has been associated with reduced risk of chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, this has largely been based on observational evidence, and there are a number of uncertainties regarding these observed links.

  Dr F Manfredini, Dr L Scott
Application Deadline: 29 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.

  Molecular Genetics of Durable Disease Resistance in Wheat
  Prof S Krattinger
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The identification of agriculturally important genes in wheat had long been limited by its large genome, which is five times larger than the human genome.
