Funding Type

PhD Type

Catchment water storage is one of the most important functions controlling water availability and streamflow. Where and when water is stored and how different ’stores’ (e.g.
  Adaptive management of stochastic parasite challenge in animals under climate change
  Prof E Morgan, Dr M Robinson
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Climate change is causing greater variation in conditions for parasite transmission, and increased unpredictability in disease outbreaks in farmed and other animals.
  Archaeal polyphosphate cycling: novel enzymes to drive new technologies
  Dr J Chin, Prof J Mcgrath
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Phosphorus is a globally important resource used particularly by the agricultural industry in fertiliser, enabling the growth of enough crops to feed the world’s increasing population.
  Emerging Infectious Diseases – Surveillance and Biosecurity
  Dr N Marks, Dr P McVeigh
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. A continued increase in both the geographical range of existing pathogens and the transmission of novel pathogens into the human population poses a challenge for the effective control of emerging infectious diseases (EIDs) and biosecurity.
  Explore novel feeding strategies to reduce ammonia emissions from ruminants and improve their productivity
  Dr K Theodoridou, Dr G Arnott
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Agriculture is the dominant source of ammonia (NH3) emissions in N. Ireland, across the UK and throughout the world.
  Influence of farm hygiene standards and management practices on Johne’s disease progression in selected NI dairy herds
  Prof I Grant, Prof N O'Connell
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Johne’s disease is present in dairy herds in Northern Ireland. However, the true herd prevalence is uncertain, and probably underestimated, because currently used diagnostic tests lack sensitivity.
  Innovative Diagnostics for Helminth Parasite Infections
  Dr P McVeigh, Dr N Marks
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Helminth (worm) parasites cause ill health and poor productivity in farm animals worldwide. Control relies largely on anthelmintic drugs, either applied en masse to entire herds based on perceived infection risk, or guided by treatment decisions made using sub-optimal diagnostic tests.
  Temperature regulation of non-coding RNA and crop - rhizosphere interactions
  Dr J Dalzell, Dr FL Liu
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Crop plants manipulate rhizosphere interactions through the release of root exudates. Whilst root exudates can attract beneficial microbes, they are also exploited by pathogens and plant parasitic nematodes (PPNs).
  The rice paddy microbiome and its impact on plant mineral nutrition
  Dr C Meharg, Prof A Meharg
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Rice is an important cereal crop.
  Using data analytics to identify best practices across the food supply chain that drive nutrition quality
  Dr D McCarthy, Dr A Nugent, Dr J Sousa
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Approaching nutrition quality from an analytics perspective stands to help us understand and predict the impact of food production practices on human and planetary health.
