  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).
  PhD Studentship in Engineering - Sub-surface impacts of green infrastructure in cities
  Dr B Thomas, Prof C Kilsby
Application Deadline: 31 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Number of awards. 1. Start date and duration. 23 September 2019 for 4 years. Application closing date. 17:00 Friday 31 August 2019.
  Microplastic-sediment interactions (MiPSi)
  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
  Dr K Spencer, Prof G Wharton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The accelerating global release of microplastics (mP) into the aquatic environment seems inevitable, with long-term consequences for water quality and biodiversity.
  Quantification of the impact of changing vegetation on hillslope sediment transport
  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
  Dr S Grieve, Dr E Lines
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hillslope sediment transport exists on a continuum from the gradual downslope motion of particles, termed soil creep, to catastrophic shallow landslides and debris flows.
  Rewilding and Natural Flood Management
  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
  Dr G Harvey, Dr A Henshaw, Dr S Clarke
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over the last decade, the UK has experienced some of the most significant and extreme flood events of the last 100 years, and predicted changes in precipitation are expected to increase the frequency and costs of flooding.
  Advancing Genomic Selection for key processing traits in potato.
  Dr SK Sharma, Dr X Chen, Dr I Hein
Application Deadline: 4 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Staff in Cell and Molecular Sciences at The James Hutton Institute have a distinguished track record of research in plant and crop science, including genetic and genomic analysis.
  Mechanisms and genetics of dormancy release in raspberry.
  Dr J Graham, Dr R Hancock, Prof D Stewart
Application Deadline: 4 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Staff in Cell and Molecular Sciences at The James Hutton Institute have a distinguished track record of research in plant and crop science, including genetic and genomic analysis.
  Understanding the traits and genetic control associated with superior micronutrient deficiency tolerance in Bere barley landraces.
  Dr L Ramsay, Dr T George, Dr M Looseley
Application Deadline: 4 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Staff in Cell and Molecular Sciences at The James Hutton Institute have a distinguished track record of research in plant and crop science, including genetic and genomic analysis.
  Flow characteristics and sediment transport in vegetated compound channels
  Research Group: Centre For Sustainable Environments
  Prof Y Guo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project is to examine the effect of vegetations on the open channel/river flow and sediment transport. It is well known that plants can reduce flow velocity, and thus sediment transport by creating additional flow resistance, leading to the increase of the river flooding.
  The application of small-unmanned aircraft systems and remote sensing for precision viticulture and biodiversity benefit
  Dr N Burnside, Dr C Joyce
Application Deadline: 13 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many traditional techniques in viticulture are generally based upon field observation, but despite their success, these approaches can be limited by time, spatial extent and a lack of repeat temporal monitoring.
