Ausvet Europe is offering 2 fully-funded PhD positions to work on their new TRANSFORM research project for 3 years.
The two PhD projects aim at using a market- and data-driven approach to develop decision-support tools tailored to low- and middle-income countries to help producers tackle the challenges of antimicrobial resistance and transboundary animal diseases. The PhD projects also include a socio-economic assessment of the decision-support tools developed and implemented as part of TRANSFORM.
The two projects will use poultry production in Indonesia and Vietnam as case studies.
• PhD 1 will focus on the development and evaluation of decision-support tools aiming at reducing antibiotic usage in the poultry sector.
• PhD 2 will focus on the development and evaluation of decision-support tools aiming at improving the management of transboundary animal diseases.
The deadline for applications is August 31st, 2021. Applications should be submitted to Catriona Mackenzie (firstname.lastname@example.org)
