Job title: BBSRC Industrial Case Partnership Award - 4-year studentship

Location: UK | East Yorkshire - Goole (Cowick Hall)

BBSRC Industrial Case Partnership Award

Toward targeted delivery of agrochemicals to soil

This is a fully funded 4-year studentship including an industrial placement starting in September 2016.

Project Background
This partnership between CRODA and The University of Sheffield, Dept of Geography offers an exciting opportunity to develop research on how agro-chemical formulations interact with soil in order to increase the efficiency of use of agro-chemicals in food production. In addition, the effect on water uptake and plant health will be investigated. This will allow characterisation of the physical/chemical interactions of agrochemical formulations with soil and tailor them for effectiveness in relation to soil type. Food security is one of the great global challenges of the 21st century. This research will produce new techniques and new formulation additives for the protection of growing crops, securing yields and reducing losses tailored for site-specific conditions, including soil types and abiotic pressures such as drought tolerance. The project aims to address these challenges producing both deconstructed and full formulations containing various additives to ensure the optimum physical and chemical interactions are favoured when binding to soil with different organic matter or clay content.  The active ingredient bioavailability and degradation also depends on irrigation and hence the primordial role of water will also be established. The efficiency of agrochemical active ingredient delivery will be quantified by measuring the effectiveness of agrochemicals to reduce weed populations. This will be evaluated from plant survival rate as well as the delivery perspective (transport and location of agrochemicals to roots).

Training
The student will join a team of researchers at the Department of Geography, The University of Sheffield working on a wide range of aspects related to innovations for agri-food business. The student will also undertake three months training at the Croda International Ltd Global Headquarters Innovation Centre. The University of Sheffield and the Crop Care laboratories are well equipped to conduct research applications testing covering a wide range of aspects for crop protection. The student will receive specific training in the area of formulation development, which has limited teaching in current UK universities. During the placement at CRODA, the student will work alongside an experienced applications team dedicated to crop research and so will have the opportunity to gain broader knowledge and as such the opportunity will be given for the student to propose innovative unassessed formulation systems from within the Croda chemical capability.

Qualifications
Candidates for BBSRC training awards must hold a first or upper second class UK honours degree, or the equivalent qualifications gained outside the UK, in the areas of chemistry, environmental chemistry, physical chemistry, chemical engineering or related science areas.

Funding eligibility
Studentships are fully funded for a fixed period of 4 years and cover fees (Home/EU only) and a tax free stipend of at UK Research Council rate. For full eligibility details please check the BBSRC guide to studentship eligibility on: http://www.bbsrc.ac.uk/documents/studentship-eligibility-pdf/

Applications
Students interested in the studentship can make a formal application via the Postgraduate Online Application system of the University of Sheffield (http://www.sheffield.ac.uk/postgraduate/research/apply/applying)
