  Low carbon farming: making carbon accounting relevant to farming and food production
  Dr V Eory
Application Deadline: 3 March 2019
Agriculture and the food system is challenged by wide ranging environmental and social objectives, such as climate change mitigation and provision of healthy food.
  Remediation of contaminated land using waste soil coupled with biomass cropping
  Dr J Carfrae
Application Deadline: 3 March 2019
In Scotland, as progression is made towards a goal of zero waste to landfill, it is considered that phytoremediation utilising crops for biomass may provide opportunity to remediate contaminated waste soil whilst obtaining end products such as biodiesel, wood, or fibre with bioenergy crops viewed as a clean renewable source of energy.
  Quantifying the impacts of parasitism on livestock greenhouse gas emissions
  Dr N Fox
Application Deadline: 3 March 2019
It is widely recognised that greenhouse gases (GHGs) are a major contributor to climate change, and livestock are responsible for more GHG emissions than all other food sources.
  Exploiting non-traditional data sources to identify smallholder pig and poultry farmers and their role in disease outbreaks
  Dr C Gomes
Application Deadline: 3 March 2019
SRUC and the University of Stirling are seeking a student to participate in a doctoral research project to explore the use of social media, search data, and other new and developing sources of information to better characterise the population of small holder farms in the UK.
  A statistical "toolkit" for cropping systems research: quantifying the importance of rotations
  Dr C Watson
Application Deadline: 3 March 2019
Crop rotations have been at the centre of agricultural systems throughout history. In modern agriculture, the main purpose of rotating crops is to reduce the incidence of diseases, pests or weeds that are difficult to control with pesticides.
  Precision livestock technologies to improve welfare: needs and constraints of farmers and veterinary surgeons
  Dr S Turner
Application Deadline: 3 March 2019
The studentship will be largely based within SRUC’s Animal and Veterinary Science Group at the Bush Estate near Edinburgh, Scotland, UK with the second year spent at Michigan State University in the USA.
