  Internal biosecurity and management strategies in farrowing and weaner houses to increase piglet growth and reduce antimicrobial usage
  Dr G Gardiner, Dr P G Lawlor
Application Deadline: 3 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Post summary. The student will be part of the UCD/Teagasc/WIT project PigNutriStrat. The aim of this project is to use a multidisciplinary research approach to develop solutions to prevent and manage multifactorial enteric diseases in pigs as a means of reducing the need for antibiotic use.

  The Eco-Immunology of Wild Mice
  Prof M Viney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The immune responses that wild animals make contribute to their fitness, but what those immune responses are – and how they differ from those of laboratory animals – is hardly known.
  FoodBioSystems DTP - Tackling antimicrobial resistance in dairy production: using microfluidics and smartphone technology to monitor resistance genes alongside functional antibiotic sensitivity testing
  Dr A Edwards, Prof RM La Ragione, Dr P Ray
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. PROBLEM - Dairy farming is a socially and economically important sector of agriculture, and also illustrates the importance of a ‘one health’ approach that addresses both human and animal health.
  Transcriptional battles in plant-pathogen interactions: understanding and re-wiring gene regulatory networks to enhance disease resistance
  Prof K Denby, Prof I A Graham
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The severity of plant disease is determined by a battle between pathogen virulence and host plant immunity – understanding this relationship is key to developing sustainable methods of pathogen control.
  Biodiversity conservation ex situ or in situ with a focus on genetic diversity.
  Dr N Maxted
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Field studies, ecogeography, geographic information systems and estimation of patterns of genetic diversity, IUCN taxonomic and genetic threat assessment will help elucidate conservation strategies and taxonomic clarity of critically endanged plant species.
  FoodBioSystems DTP - Gut bacteria and their DNA as elicitors of host beneficial responses
  Dr J Gutierrez-Merino, Dr G W Griffith, Dr H Davey
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. The incidence of gut inflammatory disorders such as such as the post-infectious irritable bowel syndrome (PI-IBS) is increasing globally, with devastating consequences in animal production and public health.
