  Earthworms and sustainable agriculture
  Dr P J Watt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Worldwide, soils are in a poor state, through erosion, compaction and the loss of organic carbon, and so it is essential that we manage them in order to maintain the productivity of agricultural land.
  Developing Sustainable Soil Ecosystems: Microbial Ecology and Biogeochemistry of Nitrogen Cycling in Artificial Soils
  Dr S Lengger, Dr M Fitzsimons
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Healthy soils are the basis for sustainable agriculture, but they are threatened by erosion, nutrient loss, and climate change.
  Microplastics in the environment: an emerging threat to agro-ecosystems?
  Dr Laura Carter, Dr P Kay
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microplastics (plastics. Soils are essential components of terrestrial ecosystems. Microplastic contamination has been shown to disturb vital relationships between soil and water, as well as having consequences for soil structure and microbial function (de Souza Machado et al., 2018).
  Plant-microbial interactions: legume-rhizobial cover crops under drought and climate change
  Prof D Cameron, Dr E Harrison, Prof J Gray, Dr C Chater
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

To develop sustainable agriculture under climate change we need to tackle CO2 emissions and drought stress. Legume-rhizobial cover crops (leys) enhance carbon and nitrogen in soils, reducing vulnerability to drought and water pollution.
  Projecting land-use change, its environmental impact, and pathways to reducing its impact
  Dr D Williams, Prof L Stringer
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Summary. Habitat loss and degradation, driven by agriculture, affects more species than any other threat (Tilman et al. 2017). As human populations and per capita consumption increase, this pressure is likely to increase massively, as vast new areas of natural habitats are converted to farmland.
  Salt intrusion and salinization management in coastal areas for a sustainable food production and ecosystem health
  Dr N Leonardi, Dr N Shokri
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to aid sustainable food production and the maintenance of healthy ecosystems by unravelling the relationship between salinity-induced land degradation and sea level rise/storms and by developing synthetic indicators translating flood and coastal erosion hazard maps into land degradation indices to serve as reference for land-use management practices.
  Data synthesis and integration for improved climate impact assessment, modelling and policy
  Dr R Cornforth, Dr E Tarnavsky
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change is already demonstrated in changes in the frequency and severity of extreme weather events.
  Nitrogen controls on ecosystem functioning in neotropical dry forests
  Prof M Rufino, Dr J Whitaker
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Global agriculture is rapidly expanding in response to the growing demand for food, with ‘agricultural frontiers’, such as dry and fertile lands of the Gran Chaco in South America contributing to this need.
  Can beaver-modified ecosystems mitigate water quality deterioration caused by both point and diffuse source pollution? PhD in Geography (NERC FRESH)
  Dr R Brazier
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Professor Richard Brazier, Department of Geography, University of Exeter. Additional supervisors. Dr Gemma Coxon, School of Geographical Sciences, University of Bristol.
  Sustaining partnership approaches – evaluating effectiveness, health and longevity of agri-environmental collaboratives
  Dr K Prager, Dr T Potts
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A multitude of partnerships have developed between actors from the farming, environment, conservation, community, business and government sectors.
