10th International Sheep Veterinary Congress

PHD Opportunity for Veterinary Graduates at the University of Liverpool and University of Newcastle.

Understanding patterns of AMR selection and transmission between sheep and their environment

The aims of the project are to describe the diversity of AMR genes detectable from sheep and the farm environment and describe how AMR from sheep is influenced by oral and parenteral antibiotic treatment and how the AMR microbiome changes over time as the lamb matures to adulthood. The student will get a highly transferable set of lab and data analysis skills combining live animal fieldwork, microbiology, molecular epidemiology and advanced bio-statistical modelling. The fieldwork will be conducted on a commercial farm followed by microbiology and molecular epidemiological analysis at Liverpool and Newcastle universities. The project will begin in October 2019 and will be based at University of Liverpool Institute of Veterinary Science, Leahurst Campus on the Wirral.  Salary will be a tax free stipend of £22,000 per annum.
