Sustainable urban horticulture: managing soils for nutritional crops

Our research has demonstrated that there is potentially enough land in UK urban areas for urban horticulture to make an important contribution to UK fruit and vegetable production1. Read more

Geological Fate and Impact of Isosaccharinic acid (Geo-FISA)

About the Project.  The nuclear fuel cycle has generated higher-level radioactive wastes that will be disposed of in a deep geological facility (GDF) that will provide multiple barriers to the migration of radionuclides to the surface over prolonged timescales (tens of thousands of years).

Optimising the energy and lighting spectra for sustainable systems – towards the next generation of vertical farms

This 12 month Master's by Research project in collaboration with iGrowing Ltd aims to reduce energy consumption of vertical farms whilst delivering optimal light environment for plant growth #plantscience #biology #ecology. Read more

Memory in vegetation response to environmental fluctuations (Advert Reference: RDF22-R/EE/GES/LIU)

Plants live in and respond to fluctuating environments around them. Importantly, many plant responses are not only driven by current environmental conditions, but show “memory” to conditions in the past. Read more

Enhancing Urban Flood Resilience with Innovative Digital Design Technologies (Advert Reference: RDF22-R/EE/MCE/FENG)

In England, 3.2 million households are located in areas at risks of urban flooding, with annual damages exceeding £300 million. Due to the extreme environmental conditions, unprecedented downpours across the country in recent years further increases the flooding events on urban road network (URN). Read more

PhD position in the Restoration of Soil Microbial and Invertebrate Biodiversity in Urban Greenspaces

Exposure to soil biodiversity in urban greenspaces can promote human and wildlife health by impacting their microbiomes. However, the development of soil biodiversity following aboveground restoration is poorly understood, as are the pathways through which people are exposed to this biodiversity. Read more

The costs and consequences of antimicrobial resistance in microbial communities

Applicants are invited for a fully funded PhD position in the group of Dr Andrew Letten at the University of Queensland to study resource competition and antibiotic resistance in microbial communities. Read more

The impact of Forestry on Golden Eagles in Scotland

Golden Eagles in Scotland have largely recovered from historically low levels over the past two centuries but their distribution is still constrained by persecution and habitat loss across parts of their former range. Read more
