  Characterising mechanisms that control Marek’s Disease Virus genome release from telomeres during reactivation from latency
  Dr N J Royle, Dr R Badge
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
Infection by Marek’s Disease Virus (MDV) is followed by latency, T-cell lymphomas and reactivation. It has significant deleterious effects on chicken health and welfare, with an annual estimated loss close to $2 billion to the global poultry meat and egg production industries.
  Sound analysis of broiler chicken - what can we tell about health, welfare and productivity from sound patterns during growth
  Dr A Butterworth
Application Deadline: 3 June 2019
The project. Vocalisation sounds in broiler chickens, reared under intensive farm conditions, may have potential to be used as a tool to improve their health and welfare status.
  PhD: The application of methanotroph bacteria Methylococcus capsulatus as chicken feed
  Dr Y Zhang
Applications accepted all year round
In this project, researchers from University of Nottingham and Rothamsted Research aim to develop and test a novel nutritional animal feed made from methanotrophic bacteria.
  Genotype-to-structure: analysis of the glycosylation of the flagella of Campylobacter jejuni, a major cause of food-borne gastroenteritis
  Dr C D Bayliss, Prof J Ketley
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
Campylobacter jejuni is the major causative agent of foodborne gastroenteritis across Europe. Contaminated chicken meat is the main source of infections and hence control of this pathogen is critical to food security in the poultry industry.
  Iron acquisition using host lactoferrin by the bacterial pathogen Campylobacter jejuni
  Prof J Ketley, Dr J Morrissey
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
Campylobacter jejuni is the main cause of bacterial food-borne disease in the UK and is a global public health priority. Infection and transmission are usually linked with contaminated food or water, with chicken being a major source.
  Host factors determining latency and reactivation of MDV-1 virus
  Dr Y Yao, Dr F Grey
Application Deadline: 29 March 2019
Herpesviruses are large dsDNA viruses that cause widespread, lifelong latent infections in different hosts, through multiple virus-host interactions to create a delicate balance between the virus and the host.
  PhD: Food recycling: Utilising food waste for valuable proteins
  Dr A Ali
Applications accepted all year round
Supervisors. Asgar Ali (PI) (Biosciences, UNM), Le Cheng Foh (Biosciences, UNM), Tim Parr (Biosciences, UNUK). Based in School of Biosciences, Semenyih, University of Nottingham Malaysia.
  Gene Regulatory Networks in Development and Disease: Focusing on systems level “big picture” approaches to understand gene regulation and build gene regulatory networks during development and disease in zebrafish, chick, lamprey and human models.
  Dr T Sauka-Spengler
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
Focusing on systems level “big picture” approaches to understand gene regulation and build gene regulatory networks during development and disease in zebrafish, chick, lamprey and human models.
  Campylobacter genomics: host specific phenotypes and antibiotic resistance in the farmyard
  Dr S MacIntyre
Applications accepted all year round
Campylobacteriosis is the primary cause of bacterial induced gastroenteritis in the UK. Contaminated retail poultry and meat is recognised as a primary source of infection.
