  FoodBioSystems DTP - Evaluating the sustainability and nutritional benefits of alternative production systems and foods
  Dr A Williams, Prof R Murphy, Dr S Lanham-New, Dr K Garnett
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. This is a great opportunity to tackle two major challenges to humanity. environmental degradation and poor nutrition.
  FoodBioSystems DTP - Do cover crops increase the resilience and sustainability of the agri-food system?
  Dr T Sizmur, Dr J Hannam, Dr L Todman, Dr E J Shaw
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Our climate is changing, and our population is growing, but the soils upon which we need to grow food to feed the growing population are degraded.
  The management of marine plastics
  Prof Paul Lant, Prof B Laycock
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plastics pollution in our oceans is a wicked problem.
  FoodBioSystems DTP - Removing unwanted macro, micro and nanoplastics from fresh produce production
  Dr C Wagstaff, Dr M Al Sid Cheikh, Prof R Murphy
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Global plastics production in 2019 was 359 million tonnes. Of the 62 million tonnes produced in Europe, only 9.2 million tonnes was collected for recycling, leaving the remainder to be disposed of on land or in marine environments, to the detriment of those ecosystems.
  SCENARIO - Soil microbial carbon metabolism for climate positive soils
  Dr E J Shaw, Dr M Redmile-Gordon, Dr R Griffiths
Application Deadline: 31 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: 29 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.
  Converting food waste to value-added chemicals and fuels via black soldier fly larvae
  Dr J McGregor
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project addresses the twin challenges of food waste remediation and the need to develop sustainable, non-fossil, sources of chemicals and fuels.
  PhD in Chemistry: Understanding heterogeneous catalysis for CO2 utilisation
  Dr DJ Willock
Application Deadline: 1 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Global warming is a pressing threat to the sustainability of our world. There is a need to reduce the use of fossil fuels and to capture CO2, ideally using it as a chemical feedstock.
  Assessing the applicability of Artificial Intelligence in the Environmental Impact Assessment process – a case study of oil and gas projects
  Dr B Anifowose
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project undertakes an empirical evaluation of AI and machine learning application to specific EIA operating principles for selected oil and gas projects.
  FoodBioSystems DTP - DSS4Food - Development of a novel and effective post-harvest decision support system (DSS) for stored cereals to minimise mould spoilage and mycotoxins in food
  Dr A Medina Vaya, Prof R Krska, Prof N Magan, Dr J Meneely
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. UK grain production represents a value of £2 Billion in ex-farm gate value. Post-harvest losses and rejection due to fungal spoilage and mycotoxin contamination often represents between 5-10% of this value, especially in wet harvest years.
