Project Description

Effective on-farm health and welfare surveillance techniques are integral to sustainable food production. Lameness is a critical production disease with considerable welfare consequences. Using cutting edge interdisciplinary research, his project will test the effectiveness of facial expressions for assessing lameness in dairy cattle and develop an automated on-farm surveillance system.


Funding Notes

Studentships are normally available for 3 year PhDs covering tuition fees and an annual stipend of £14,553.

Applications from both UK/EU and other non-EU international applicants will be considered; however, as this studentship only covers UK/EU fees, the difference in fees for non-EU international students will need to be met by the applicant. Annual fees are £10,165 per year for home/EU and £22,210 for International. So international students must provide payment for the difference per year in fees of £12,045.
