About the Project
The aim of this PhD project is to assess drivers for efficient ABU data capture and their association with reduced ABU and improved health and welfare. Through collaboration with VMD, APHA and industry, the project will: explore the use and efficiency of existing data capture systems, explore associations with ABU and AMR, use participatory epidemiology to assess drivers and preferences for the capture of ABU and health-related data, and conduct an economic analysis of the impact of ABU and AMR. Recommendations will be made to support the development of data capture mechanisms that will optimise recording of ABU by farmers, and maximise utility of the data and thus the benefit to farmers.
You do not need to be a vet but:
•some epidemiological training and
•familiarity with the UK livestock sector
would be useful.
This is a competition studentship.
The studentship will commence at the beginning of October 2017.
