  Production and assessment of antiviral prophylactic properties of natural biomolecules against avian influenza and Newcastle disease viruses affecting poultry production
  Dr M Iqbal, Dr A Smith
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Poultry infected with avian influenza viruses and/or Newcastle disease viruses suffer severe morbidity and mortality which can gravely impact poultry production.
  Genetic Definition of Loci That Underpin Poultry Beak Shape
  Dr J Schoenebeck, Dr I Dunn
Application Deadline: 20 January 2019

  Novel approaches for defining the Gram negative mobile antimicrobial resistance reservoir in poultry farming environments under varying antimicrobial selective pressure
  Prof N Williams
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Antimicrobial resistance is an increasing problem in both human and veterinary medicine. Many bacteria have now acquired mechanisms of resistance to antimicrobials, which can spread to other bacteria.
  MSC PROJECT: Life Cycle Assessment of LED Lighting for Pullet and Layer Barns
  Dr N Pelletier
Applications accepted all year round
Lighting systems for livestock production, in particular for poultry, are influential for animal health and productivity (Er et al.
  Iron acquisition using host lactoferrin by the bacterial pathogen Campylobacter jejuni
  Prof J Ketley, Dr J Morrissey
Application Deadline: 6 January 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.
  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.
  Community composition and function of the hindgut microbiome in seaweed-eating marine fish - Project 1
  Prof KD Clements, Dr K Handley
Applications accepted all year round
The world’s increasing demand for food generates a powerful economic imperative for innovation in food production technology. Our novel system was discovered through our previous research in New Zealand, and has the potential to create several new products for the global food supply chain.

  All cellulose and all keratin composites
  Research Group: Soft Matter Physics
  Dr M Ries
Applications accepted all year round
Processing of cellulose with ionic liquids gives the possibility to tap into nature’s most abundant biopolymer unlocking its remarkable natural properties via “green” dissolution routes.
  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: 6 January 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.
