  Using child maintenance as a tool to enhance the circumstances, outcomes and wellbeing of lone mothers and children.
  Research Group: Institute for Social Policy, Housing and Equalities Research
  Prof G Bramley
Application Deadline: 29 April 2019
When lone-mothers receive child maintenance the risk of poverty reduces and the poverty gap closes by 30% in the UK. Child maintenance is where a non-resident parent regularly gives money to the parent with whom the child lives most of the time as a contribution towards the costs of raising a child.
  Underpinning marine spatial planning of Blue Carbon resources; Orkney Islands Catchment Audit case study
  Research Group: Institute of Life and Earth Sciences
  Dr J S Porter
Application Deadline: 8 March 2019
Orkney Islands is a useful location on which to base a Blue Carbon planning project pilot because it has a variety of Blue Carbon habitats occurring in a discrete area.
  Optimisation of essential habitat in sustainable fishery management
  Research Group: Institute of Life and Earth Sciences
  Dr M Bell
Application Deadline: 8 March 2019
Fragile coastal communities in remote areas of Scotland are frequently dependent on inshore fishing in both economic and social terms.
  The coexistence of aquaculture and inshore fisheries in Scotland: An ecotoxicological approach to establish potential contamination pathways in commercially important crustacean species
  Research Group: Institute of Life and Earth Sciences
  Dr A Capper, Dr A R Lyndon
Application Deadline: 8 March 2019
Inshore fisheries are integral to the economy of coastal communities in Scotland and provide a vital societal role continuing a long tradition of fishing heritage.
  The chemistry of industrial materials for removing CO2 from the atmosphere
  Assoc Prof P Renforth
Application Deadline: 30 March 2019
Alkaline industrial materials (e.g., cement, lime, iron and steel waste) are amongst the largest mass flows that humanity creates.
  Understanding the genetic basis for Ramularia disease resistance in barley
  Dr N Havis
Application Deadline: 3 March 2019
Ramularia leaf spot (RLS), caused by the fungus Ramularia collo-cygni, is a major disease of barley in many temperate countries. The disease has a long latent phase in the plant before symptoms appear, typically after flowering, leading to reduced grain yield and quality.
  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.
  Understanding impacts of environment-related payments on farm level production and economy through integrated spatial modelling
  Dr S Shrestha
Application Deadline: 3 March 2019
In the last few decades, farmers have made changes to their farming strategies to accommodate incentives for environmental protection measures.
