Lawton (2010) reviewed England’s biodiversity and ecological networks and concluded that biodiversity sites did not comprise a coherent and resilient ecological network, in the face of a changing climate and threats to biodiversity.
  Designing new porous foam catalysts PhD/ MSc by Research
  Dr P Clough, Dr J Sumner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many chemical processes rely on catalysts to enhance reaction rates and their development from a Material Science and Chemistry standpoint is constantly improving, this PhD (or MSc by Research – MRes) will investigate developing porous catalytic foams using novel methods, with cheap precursors, via sustainable and resource efficient routes.
  Earth observation for sustainable sugarcane production

  Prof J Rickson
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Growing enough food to feed 10 billion people by 2050 is a global challenge. However, less attention is paid to the changing nutritional quality of food and how this affects human health.
  FoodBioSystems DTP - Development of different natural biopesticide formulations of plant extracts for control of economically important cereal and grass diseases
  Prof N Magan, Dr G W Griffith, Dr A Medina Vaya, Dr S Palmer
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. In todays’ cropping systems, crop protection chemicals are used extensively to maintain crop productivity and reduce pest/disease damage.
  FoodBioSystems DTP - DSS4Food - Development of a novel and effective post-harvest decision support system (DSS) for stored cereals to minimise mould spoilage and mycotoxins in food
  Dr A Medina Vaya, Prof R Krska, Prof N Magan, Dr J Meneely
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. UK grain production represents a value of £2 Billion in ex-farm gate value. Post-harvest losses and rejection due to fungal spoilage and mycotoxin contamination often represents between 5-10% of this value, especially in wet harvest years.
  FoodBioSystems DTP - Evaluating epigenetic and transcriptomic adaptations to climate change in Brasicca napus (oilseed rape)
  Dr F Mohareb, Dr J Hammond, Dr F Rezwan, Dr M Anastasiadi
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. The recent heat wave events witnessed over the past few years across the UK as a result of change in the global climate, represents a serious threat to agriculture.
