Inga agroforestry to enhance soil regeneration and carbon sequestration in degraded tropical soils.

Extensive tracts of land in the tropics have already been cleared of forest, used first to grow crops and then as pasture. The removal of the tropical forest severely diminishes the capacity of the ecosystem to retain nutrients and carbon in the soil. Read more

Rebuilding soil quality and crop performance in arable farming by herbal leys

Soil degradation is a major global threat to agricultural sustainability. Intensively cultivated arable soils that have been used to grow annual crops for decades often suffer from low organic matter content and weak structure and depleted populations of soil organisms. Read more

Molecular breeding in raspberry to improve fruit quality PhD

An opportunity has arisen for a fully-funded PhD studentship through a collaboration between Cranfield University and Edward Vinson Ltd, a Kent-based soft fruit breeding company. Read more

Conservation genomics of bumble bees

Project Highlights. Your research will be high impact science geared towards the conservation of bumble bees - highly important pollinators of both wild flowers and important crops. Read more

POSITIVE - evaluating Plant pOlyphenol effects on SoIl funcTional dIVErsity

Background. Crop breeding has changed the nutritional, mineral and non-nutritional composition of crop plants. Non-nutritionals include metabolites such as polyphenols and these have historically been considered as ‘anti-nutritionals’, reflecting their effect upon animal health when fed as major components in diets.

PhD in the genomics of rapid adaptation in plants

We invite applications for a PhD in the area of genomics and rapid adaptation in plants. Our research combines cutting-edge genomic techniques, comparative analyses and experimental approaches to understand how organisms adapt to their environment. Read more

PhD in tropical conservation: Quantifying the impacts of land-use change on tropical biodiversity across scales

Tropical land-use change is a core driver of the global extinction and climate change crises. Key questions remain about how land-use change drives species losses and changing composition across the tropics, from local to regional spatial scales. Read more

Ancient grain for modern times: Diversity of naked barley for human health and agroecology.

Project Background.  Naked barley (also known as hull-less barley) has been grown and eaten for thousands of years, but has been largely forgotten in Europe, even though the grain offers solutions to current challenges of poor diet and unsustainable food systems. Read more
