  Assessing Drought Resilience of Restored Peatlands Using Combined Optical and Microwave Satellite Data
  Dr A Gimona, Dr R Artz, Dr TL Quaife, Prof K Morrison
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Background. Peatlands are a key component of the terrestrial carbon cycle. They sequester large amounts of carbon from the atmosphere.
  A Few Bad Potatoes: Modelling Economic Aspects of Disease Control in Seed Potatoes
  Prof I Toth, Prof A Kleczkowski, Dr S Humphris
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Background. Production and export of seed potatoes is of immense value to the UK economy, yet threatened by multiple disease threats.
  The Soil Microbial Black Box - Does What’s Inside Matter?
  Dr M Giles, Dr E Paterson, Prof L Baggs, Dr R Neilson
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
A single gram of soil can harbor in the order of 1010 bacteria and up to 52 000 individual species. However, the role of this diversity in regulating soil functions (e.g.
  China Scholarship Council PhD Programme: Understanding gene networks influencing straw digestibility for industrial biotechnology
  Dr C Halpin
Application Deadline: 14 January 2019
This project will essentially be data-driven, using large complex genomics and transcriptomics datasets and advanced bioinformatics to validate and expand gene networks and infer gene function.
  The Role of Rainfall Dynamics in Influencing River Water Quality
  Dr I Pohle, Dr M Stutter, Dr M Wilkinson, Dr J Geris
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Rainfall signals provide new potential to evaluate patterns of river water quality change. Water quality dynamics are often analysed by concentration-discharge behaviour; however, important system behaviour (e.g.
  Behaviour of Clostridium Species in Anaerobic Digestate: Risks and Benefits
  Dr L Avery, Dr R Hough, Dr H West
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Background. Pathogenic and non-pathogenic clostridia are often carried commensally/asymptomatically as part of the indigenous microflora of the mammalian gut, and are ubiquitous in soil, sediments and decaying organic matter.
  Developing a High-Throughput Platform in Barley to Screen for Resistance to Aphids
  Dr J Russell, Prof R Waugh, Dr J Bos
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Aphids are economically important pests globally, and can cause significant yield loss of crops, including barley. Currently there are no commercial barley cultivars that are resistant against aphids, and only limited sources of partial resistance have been reported to date.
  Long-Term Impacts of Peatland Restoration on Hydrological Function
  Dr R Artz, Dr M Coyle, Prof J Holden
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Many UK blanket peatlands were drained during the second half of the 20th century using open cut ditches. However, these are now being blocked as part of peatland restoration initiatives.
  Transdisciplinary Analysis of the Likelihood of Farming Community Adoption of Different Soil Restoration Strategies, Using a Co-Designed, Integrated Biophysical, Social and Economic Simulation Model
  Dr J Yeluripati, Dr M Hare, Dr J Hillier
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Soil degradation is a formidable challenge, disproportionately affecting food security and economic well-being in lower and middle- income countries (Tilahun et al., 2018).
  Managing Rare Arable Weeds to Promote Soil Function and Support Maintenance of Barley Yields
  Dr R Brooker, Prof R Pakeman, Dr J Rowntree
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Background. There is increasing concern about an ongoing decline in biodiversity, particularly as a consequence of agricultural intensification [1].
