Agricultural Scholarship for Understanding P dynamics in soil
The Postgraduate Research scholarship is part of the Grains Research & Development Corporation (GRDC) project “Increasing profits from N, P and K fertiliser inputs into the evolving cropping sequences in the Western Region”. The cost of fertilisers is the highest variable cost for grain producers in the Western Region, but decision gaps exist in N, P and K fertilizer management because of the climate and farming systems changes that occurred after most crop nutrition knowledge had been obtained.
Soil P has accumulated across much of the region, with a recent survey showing that 70% of soils have sufficient soil P levels. With fertiliser decisions being based on the premise of P deficiency, it is clear that P fertiliser management in Western Region soils must change, but the knowledge needed to guide such a change is inadequate.
A PhD student will join the multidisciplinary team including personnel from Universities (UWA, Adelaide Univ), WA Department of Primary Industry and Regional Development, and fertiliser companies to work on characterising the priming effect of relatively small amounts of starter-P fertiliser on root and shoot growth of wheat, canola and narrow-leaf lupins. There is flexibility in terms of focussing the project, with a number of possible aspects (eg. soil science, root physiology, plant nutrition, genetics, agronomy, modelling, etc.). Appropriate research and mentoring support will be provided, with travelling opportunities to relevant conferences in Australia and overseas.
Available in the 2019 round for Domestic applicants and UWA International graduates

Fugro is an international company that specialises in the characterisation of the ground and the geotechnical design and performance of infrastructure and fund the Fugro Chair in Geotechnics (held by Fraser Bransby). The relevant local office are leaders in offshore geotechnical consultancy, the project topics have been selected in collaboration with them and they will help guide the projects.
The projects on offer are:
1. The lifetime performance of shallow offshore foundations in carbonate silty sands (performance during and after seismic events and as a result of operational cyclic loading);

Whats all the Buzz? Managing competing interests in developing Western Australias beekeeping industry
An innovative and motivated PhD candidate is needed to develop new approaches for a ’license to operate’ tailored to the Western Australian beekeeping industry. The project will examine the social, political and ecological barriers and opportunities for securing optimal hive site accessibility (license to operate) now and into the future. A license to operate is a priority for ensuring the productivity and profitability of the WA beekeeping industry, and for negotiating with industry, hobbyists, the general public, and other stakeholders over the reform needed to expand the industry in light of competing interests. This project serves to increase productivity and profitability of beekeepers, and to increase understanding of the competing interests in the management of honey bee hive sites in WA. The candidate will identify solutions and develop tools for viable and harmonious co-habitation between commercial beekeeping given a range of anthropogenic factors across spatially and ecologically-diverse native environments and commercial beekeeping arrangements that are distinctive to WA. The successful candidate will have scope to tailor the project in terms of methodology and theoretical approach to aid in the development of a productive and profitable WA beekeeping industry. http://www.crchoneybeeproducts.com/training-and-education/post-graduates-optional/project-1-3-whats-the-buzz-managing-competing-interests-in-developing-was-beekeeping-industry/
