Fully Funded BBSRC CASE PhD 
Studentship:<http://www.findaphd.com/search/ProjectDetails.aspx?PJID=56939> 
High Resolution (UAV) Remote Sensing for Improved Crop Field Trials (“Field 
Phenotyping”)<http://www.findaphd.com/search/ProjectDetails.aspx?PJID=56939>

A four year, fully funded BBSRC CASE Phd Studentship is available in the area 
of remote sensing for improved phenotyping of wheat (i.e. the field-trialing of 
new wheat strains). Wheat is one of our most important and widespread food 
crops, and crop breeding programmes develop new strains to try to further 
increase yields even under demanding environmental (e.g. drought-prone) and 
management (e.g. reduced fertiliser) conditions. The objective of this PhD is 
to develop the use of remote sensing and unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) 
technology for improving field phentotyping methods, both in the UK and in more 
drought prone areas overseas.

The project is a BBSRC CASE PhD Studentship with King's College London, 
conducted in collaboration with Rothamsted Research and Bayer CropScience AG. 
The project will be jointly supervised by Prof. Martin Wooster (KCL), Dr 
Malcolm Hawkesford (Rothamsted) and Dr Juan Pedro Ruiz-Santaella (Bayer 
CropScience AG).

PhD to commence between Jan 2015 and end Sept 2015. Will thus suit recently 
graduated MSc student OR student currently on MSc programme.
