  Using stem cell-derived “mini-guts” to determine the role of the microbiota in resistance to Cryptosporidium infection in cattle
  Dr J Coombes
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Cryptosporidium parvum causes acute diarrhoea in young calves, which can be fatal. Infection is common, and carries significant economic and welfare costs.
  Aetiopathogenesis and genomic architecture of resistance to claw horn disruption lesions in dairy cattle
  Prof G Oikonomou
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Maintaining good foot health is one of the most critical challenges the dairy industry faces today. This is because poor foot health leads to reduced mobility of the animal and causes lameness.
  Modelling the agriculture-deforestation interface in the Brazilian Amazon
  Prof D Moran, Dr R de Olivera Silva
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
Project Summary. Mathematical and socio-ecological modelling will be used to understand the dynamics of land use change and agricultural intensification and deforestation related to beef cattle and soybean production in Brazil.
  Newcastle-Liverpool-Durham Doctoral Training Partnership in Biosciences
The Newcastle-Liverpool-Durham DTP (http://www.nld-dtp.org.uk/) is a strategic Partnership in Biosciences doctoral training between three research-intensive universities in northern cities of great industrial heritage, Newcastle University, the University of Liverpool and Durham University.
  Measuring the seasonally changing condition of ungulates in temperate and semi-desert environments
  Dr S G Willis, Dr P Stephens
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Background. The body condition of individuals is a major determinant of which animals breed in a population, and of the likelihood of a population thriving or declining, yet studies on condition in wild species are rare.
  How does the one-humped Arabian camel survive in the desert without drinking?
  Prof D Murphy, Dr M Greenwood
Applications accepted all year round
Whilst water balance is aggressively defended in all mammals, this is all the more so in the one-humped Arabian camel, which has a remarkable capacity to thrive in the hot, arid conditions of the Arabian deserts (1), and to survive extended periods of dehydration (2).
  Links between animal behaviour, health and welfare
  Dr SDE Held
Applications accepted all year round
An animal’s behaviour both causes and reflects changes in its health and welfare. The biological processes underlying these relationships are increasingly well understood in humans.
  Valuing Ecosystem Services produced by the Colombian Páramos
  Research Group: The Roslin Institute
  Prof D Moran
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
Project Summary. This project will use interdisciplinary methods to explore a production function approach to valuing hydrological services in Páramo case study sites.
  Investigating the co-evolution of chromosome organisation and gene expression
  Dr M Farré Belmonte
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Our lab aims to study genome evolution and the genetic changes associated with individual and species differences, applying the newest comparative and functional genomic techniques and the great wealth of genomic data available.
  Application of advanced spectroscopic techniques to monitor real-time transformations in aerosolized bovine tuberculosis bacteria
  Prof A P Abbott, Dr A Hudson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Mycobacterium bovis is the causative agent of bovine tuberculosis (bTB), a devastating disease affecting global cattle populations.
