  Fostering Sustainability Through Organic Waste Re-Use in Sub Saharan Africa
  Prof J Smith, Dr D Feliciano
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Efficient re-use of organic wastes is of critical importance to the productivity of small-holder farm households in many parts of Sub-Saharan Africa (Smith et al., 2015).
  Data Analytics For Pore Water Pressure - New Tools For Sustainable Groundwater and Engineering Projects
  Prof W Timms
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This new PhD scholarship will develop advanced pore pressure analysis for groundwater systems with engineering applications in civil construction, mining operations and water supply systems.
  Molecular Genetics of Durable Disease Resistance in Wheat
  Prof S Krattinger
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The identification of agriculturally important genes in wheat had long been limited by its large genome, which is five times larger than the human genome.
  Decision Automation for Orchards and Vineyards
