  Combining different neurosciences and experimental economics methods for investigating consumers’ preferences and willingness to pay for new controversial food technologies.
  Dr D Asioli
Applications accepted all year round
A large number of studies have attempted to investigate consumers’ preferences for new food products produced using new controversial food technologies (e.g.
  Consumers’ preferences and willingness to pay for food products: the role of scents and physical presence of goods
  Dr D Asioli
Applications accepted all year round
Consumers’ choices of goods should not vary with changes in the procedure by which they are made or with the description. In this “consequentialist” view, choices should only depend on their likely consequences.
  Crop pollination, pest regulation and soil management: Ecological intensification for sustainable food production
  Dr M Garratt, Dr T Breeze
Applications accepted all year round
Growing populations are placing an ever-increasing demand on agricultural systems to provide sufficient foods, particularly in the developing world.
  Mine site restoration and ecosystem development
  Prof M Tibbett
Applications accepted all year round
This project will include various aspect of minesite rehabilitation including early development of terrestrial ecosystems and the nutritional constraints to ecosystem development (plants and soil biota) using a space-for-time substiution appraoch.
  Physical activity, energy expenditures, and time use in agriculture and rural livelihood
  Dr G Zanello
Applications accepted all year round
The limited uptake of agricultural innovations with proven productivity-enhancing potential and the translation of productivity increases into improvements in nutrition are two major development challenges facing Low and Middle Income Countries (LMICs).
  SCENARIO: Climate change impacts on UK apple production and quality
  Prof R Ellis, Prof P Hadley, Dr M Ordidge, Mr T Biddlecombe
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Future food and nutritional security requires sustainable food production systems in future, different climates. Perennial crops such as top fruit (apples, pears, plums, cherries, etc) are more sustainable than annual crops.
  SCENARIO: Nutrient release from coniferous woodland stimulated by changes in forest management: A new nitrate time bomb?
  Prof M Lukac, Mr M Ascott, Dr E Vanguelova
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Nitrogen (N) pollution of rivers and groundwater costs billions of pounds per year globally in water treatment and environmental damage from eutrophication.
  SCENARIO: When (plant) life gets in the way: Investigating how vegetation attenuates sex pheromone odour plumes and communication between conspecifics
  Dr R Girling, Prof A Robins, Prof R Cardé
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
This multi-disciplinary studentship will investigate how the plume dynamics of sex pheromone signals released by moths are attenuated by vegetation and the effects that this has on moth mate searching and ecology.
  The nature of mycorrhizal symbioses
  Prof M Tibbett
Applications accepted all year round
This project will build on recent work highlighting the changing view of the nature of the relationship between plant and fungus in the (near) ubiquitous symbiosis.
