  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).
  Climate change impacts on subsistence agriculture in Sub-Saharan Africa – an exploration using data assimilation with the JULES land surface model (CENTA2-SGGE21-KADU)
  Dr J Kaduk, Dr D Ghent
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change is expected to impact African water and food security, sustainable development, and economic sustainability (ISS, 2010).
  Facilitating the circular economy in India’s food security: the social, economic and agronomic barriers and opportunities of wastewater
  Dr K V Heal, Dr A Gathorne-Hardy, Dr H Gorringe
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project summary. This interdisciplinary project combines environmental and social science to quantify the potential benefits of wastewater for Indian agriculture, as well as understanding the social barriers to wastewater use, and identifying opportunities to overcome these.
  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.
  Hydrological response to agricultural land degradation in the Lesser Himalayas
  Prof D M Hannah, Prof S Krause
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

India, as many areas of the world, is experiencing widespread rural to urban migration, coupled with rapid population growth.
