PhD fellowship in Parasite-Microbiota Interactions at the Department of Veterinary and Animal Sciences

Our group and research. The Parasites, Immunology and Gut Health (PIGH) group applies small (rodent, zebrafish) and large (swine) animal models and in vitro cell culture techniques to explore host-pathogen-microbiome interactions and nutritional immunology. Read more

Using artificial intelligence and machine vision for real time identification and prediction of aggressive behaviour in livestock

Currently health and welfare assessment are done by trained assessors and as a result is time and labour consuming. This process can also be subjective, and it is sometimes questionable if the auditor is measuring animals under normal farm conditions. Read more

Using microfluidics and flow cytometry to develop novel diagnostics for Leishmaniasis

The Leishmaniases are a group of neglected tropical diseases caused by >20 species of Leishmania parasites that are spread by >90 species of phlebotomine sand flies. 1 billion people in Africa, Asia, the Americas and the Mediterranean are at risk, with the poor and malnourished being disproportionately affected.

Investigating the cell biology of Neoparamoeba perurans, a causative agent of Amoebic Gill Disease, and its endosymbiont kinetoplastid, Perkinsela.

Amoebic gill disease (AGD), caused by the opportunistic amoebozoan parasite Neoparamoeba perurans, is a major disease in salmonid aquaculture [1-3] and there is an urgent need to mitigate the impact parasitic infections have on both fish welfare and sustainable growth in the sector. Read more

4-year PhD Studentship: Assessing welfare consequences of feed restrictions in dairy cattle: short-term, long-term and sustainability perspectives

Although freedom from hunger is a key pillar of animal welfare, feed restrictions are common on most farms. For instance, on dairy farms, pre-weaned calves are typically fed less than 50% of ad libitum consumption (4-6L of milk when they would drink up to 16L[1]). Read more

4-year PhD Studentship: Multi-camera machine vision of a whole cattle herd for assessing the impact of interventions for environmental sustainability

While dairy farming is receiving increasingly strong competition from plant-based alternatives, it remains an important agricultural option where grass is the most viable crop, such as Bristol’s civic region as well as a large slice of world landmass. Read more

4-year PhD Studentship: Chemogenetic modulation of neuronal activity as a refined alternative to physiological stress

High blood pressure is one of the biggest risk factors for cardiovascular disease (1). The hypothalamus regulates neuroendocrine homeostasis and helps to maintain metabolic processes such as body weight, fluid balance and blood pressure (2). Read more
