PhD recruitment This PhD recruitment focuses primarily on investigating the impact of multi-species swards in pasture-based production systems on the quality and nutraceutical properties of milk. Applicants should have a minimum of 2.1 Bachelors (Hons) degree or higher in Science (e.g. Analytical Science, Chemistry, Biochemistry), Food Science or in a related subject and should have an interest in the Science of Food. Knowledge and working experience of analytical techniques (GC, HPLC, GC-MS, LC-MS) to quantify compositional differences in milk would be desirable. The successful candidate should be highly self-motivated, enthusiastic and with an ability to interact well within a large research team. The student will be based in the School of Food Science and Environmental health and will be registered at the Technical University Dublin – City Campus working under the supervision of Prof Nissreen Abu-Ghannam alongside the wider SMARTSWARD team.
SMARTSWARD is a multidisciplinary transnational research project funded by the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine and commercial industry to support the sustainability of Irish pasture based production systems.
