  Animal and Robotics Interactions: Deploying UAV's to Enable Proximal Sensing and Management of Livestock
  Assoc Prof M Trotter, Prof S Moore
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The interaction between animals and robotics is an emerging and exciting area of cross-disciplinary research. There are numerous opportunities for robotics, and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in particular, to make an impact on the way in which livestock are managed.
  Development of novel feed supplements to minimise infection and improve immunity in piglets
  Dr B Green
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project description. This exciting new industrially-relevant project will take place at the laboratories of the world-leading Institute for Global Food Security, School of Biological Sciences, at Queen’s University Belfast.
  The work of complementary and alternative therapies on British dairy farms
  Dr MP Escobar-Tello
Application Deadline: 21 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project. This project steps aside from studies considering the therapeutic effectiveness of alternative and complementary therapies (ACTs) and asks instead if and how the use of ACTs affects farmers’ decisions around animal health management and usage of antibiotics on British dairy farms.
  Immune Responses to Salivary Biomarkers as Tools to Understand the Epidemiology of Vector Borne Diseases
  Dr J Sternberg, Dr A Bowman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Haematophagous (blood-feeding) arthropods may act as vectors for serious parasitic diseases to humans and livestock. Examples include ticks (Lyme diseases, tick-borne encephalitis, theileriosis), Hemipteran Bugs (Chagas disease), Tsetse Flies (African trypanosomiasis), Mosquitoes (malaria, filariasis, dengue etc).
  Determination of Listeria monocytogenes virulence in an invertebrate model Project ID SAS0045
  Dr N Wheelhouse, Prof I Singleton
Application Deadline: 30 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

PROJECT DESCRIPTION. Listeria monocytogenes (L. monocytogenes) is a bacterium which is ubiquitous in the environment and the causative agent of listeriosis, a major food-borne disease affecting humans and livestock.
  Changes to prescribing – evaluation of likely impacts on the aquatic environment and AMR potential
  Dr K Helwig, Dr C Hunter, Dr J Spencer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCEBE-19-019. After consumption, pharmaceutical residues are excreted by patients, not fully removed in wastewater treatment works, and thus enter the aquatic environment, where they pose a risk to aquatic organisms through chronic exposure.
  Evaluation of natural plant based botanicals as alternative to therapeutic antibiotics
  Dr C Situ
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

It has become widely recognised that antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the biggest health threats that mankind faces encompassing huge health and economic burdens on governments and societies in every region of the globe.
  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.
  GW4 FRESH CDT PhD Studentship: Speciation of emerging contaminants in wetland systems
  Prof B Kasprzyk-Hordern
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Centre for Doctoral Training in Freshwater Biosciences and Sustainability (GW4 FRESH CDT) which is offering up to 14 studentships to start in September 2020.
  Indicators of regime shifts in freshwater ecosystems
  Dr C Clements
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Regime shifts, characterised by sudden, often irreversible, changes in the composition of biological communities, can have catastrophic impacts on the ecosystem services which society relies on.
  Disease Control and Conservation: Applying Grazing Pressure to Solve ‘The World's Worst Wildlife Infectious Disease’
  Dr D J S Montagnes, Prof A Fenton
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BACKGROUND & TIMELINESS. Naturally occurring diseases threaten ecosystem function, biodiversity, and humans (zoonotic infections).
  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 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.
