The requirement for sustainable food production is a global issue to which the EU contributes as a major livestock producer. Climate change will undoubtedly impact on farm animal production, while the health and welfare of livestock is also of increasing public concern. An important and common currency in developing solutions to these challenges is to improve production efficiency. The GplusE project has received a multi-million Euro grant from European Union to focus on how this can be achieved for the dairy industry. The project will focus on the development of sustainable dairy cow production systems through the optimal integration of genomic selection with improved management, assisted by novel approaches to gathering reliable phenotypes.

This position may be appointed at either UCD Post Doctoral Research Fellow Level 1 or Level 2 depending on the relevant qualifications and experience of the successful candidate.

Salary: €33,975 – €41,630 per annum
Appointment on the above range will be dependent on qualifications and experience
