  Forecasting the next panzootic foot-and-mouth disease lineage: informing virus fitness from in vitro studies and genomic data
  Dr D King, Dr D Horton
Application Deadline: 4 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

We seek a highly motivated student with the enthusiasm and drive to pursue an engaging question in the field of virus emergence and epidemiology.
  MSC PROJECT: Life Cycle Assessment of LED Lighting for Pullet and Layer Barns
  Dr N Pelletier
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lighting systems for livestock production, in particular for poultry, are influential for animal health and productivity (Er et al.
  *** FULLY FUNDED *** Lameness detection using contactless radio-frequency radar sensing and artificial intelligence in ruminants
  Dr N Jonsson, Dr F Fioranelli
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lameness is an important health-, welfare-, and production-limiting problem for the livestock industry. The current “gold-standard” method to assess lameness is by visual locomotion scoring, which essentially involves trained veterinary clinicians carefully observing and scoring tens of animals.
  Disease control and conservation: applying grazing pressure to solve ’The World’s Worst Wildlife Infectious Disease’
  Dr D J S Montagnes, Prof A Fenton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

BACKGROUND & TIMELINESS. Infectious diseases threaten ecosystem function, biodiversity, and humans through zoonotic infections. Water-borne diseases, in particular, are predicted to increase through anthropogenic factors, including climate-change.
  Towards more sustainable use of phosphorus in UK grasslands considering soil-plant interactions
  Dr V Niasar, Prof D Johnson, Dr S Lee
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This ambitious project will lead to a major shift in how soil phosphorus (P), is managed in UK grasslands.
  Bioelectrochemical systems for remediation and resource recovery
  Dr H. I. Gomes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a three-year PhD studentship to develop bioelectrochemical systems (BES) for remediation and resource recovery, in the Food, Water, Waste Research Group (FWW), Faculty of Engineering, University of Nottingham (UoN).
  Effect of the prebiotic Galacto-oligosaccharide on the young pig
  Dr K Mellits
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Physiological, environmental, and social stressors at weaning lead to production/health problems in commercial pigs such as infectious and non-infectious diarrhoea and lack of feed intake.
  Optimising organic feedstock properties for thermal applications
  Dr T Somorin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Organic wastes are valuable for energy, nutrients and fuels; however, in many parts of the world, these materials remain an “untapped resource” ― treated as waste.
  PhD Studentship Opportunity in Environment and Diseases: A general Method Linking Mechanism and Phenomenology
  Dr G Lo Iacono, Prof A Cook
Application Deadline: 19 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The impact of environment on infectious diseases is well–known. It can affect pathogen abundance, survival, and virulence, host susceptibility to infection as well as human behaviour.
  PhD Studentship Opportunity in Machine learning and portfolio approaches to cystic echinococcosis area risk classification and prioritisation of interventions
  Dr J Prada
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cystic echinococcosis (CE) is a zoonotic parasitic disease of significant public health concern in many parts of the world. For example, over 5,000 new CE cases are reported in South America every year and a recent study has estimated that more than 150,000 people in Bulgaria, Romania and Turkey might be affected by CE.
