  RVC PhD: Principal-agent theory assessment to understand inappropriate antibiotic usage in rural Indian’s livestock
  Dr P Alarcon-Lopez, Dr G Fournié
Application Deadline: 9 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over and inappropriate use of antibiotics can have negative consequences at both the individual and societal level by being wasteful of resources, leading to deleterious outcomes, and contributing to antibiotic resistance.
  QUADRAT DTP: Actions of early life endocrine-disrupting chemical exposure on adult fish health using the zebrafish model
  Prof S Martin, Prof G Hardiman
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Landfills and other legacy waste sites in coastal zones are major sources of persistent organic pollutants (POPs), including polychlorinated biphenyl (PCBs), Perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs), to transitional waters and marine environments.
  Pollution of freshwaters with selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors: a health perspective
  Dr P Beltran-Alvarez
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A range of pharmaceuticals including selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI) have routinely been measured in waterways, such as rivers and estuaries, in the ng/L range (e.g.
  Detecting the effect of climate change on animals: how mathematics can help optimise data-gathering efforts

  QUADRAT DTP: Environmental change and the epidemiology of a multi-host pathogen: Leptospira in Africa
  Dr M Moseley, Prof E Morgan
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Multi-host pathogens include some the most important pathogens of livestock and humans. These pathogens are maintained in complex ecological reservoirs that are comprised of epidemiologically connected animal host populations and environments (Viana et al., 2014).
  Mathematical Modelling of the Bovine Reproductive Cycle
  Dr L Creedon, Dr M McAfee
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will create mathematical models of aspects of the reproductive cycle of cows. The techniques used will include systems of ordinary differential equations, linear algebra, and networks/graphs.
  QUADRAT DTP CASE: The role of biodiversity in mitigating parasite impacts in farmed landscapes
  Prof M Emmerson, Prof J Travis, Dr A Aubry
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biodiversity provides a range of benefits for the functioning of ecosystems, but it also helps to limit the spread of disease. This occurs because congeneric species in a community can compete with vectors of disease limiting the abundance of the vector and hence the overall prevalence of the disease.
  How does serotonin affect sexual behaviour in fish?
  Dr D Joyce
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is a possible role for serotonin in the sand-castle building behaviour of cichlid fishes, behaviour carried out by males to attract females.
  The role of serotonin in crayfish anti-predatory behaviour and dominance
  Dr T Breithaupt
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Serotonin is involved in anxiety-like behaviour as well as in dominance fights in crayfish. Anxiety-like behaviour can be elicited by a stressful experience such as exposure to chemical predation cues or intraspecific fight experience.
