Teagasc and Massey University PhD Walsh Fellowship Opportunity

This PhD Fellowship starts early in 2021. The project is a joint research project between Massey University, New Zealand and Teagasc, Ireland, with the student enrolled in a PhD at Massey University under the tutelage of Dr Suzanne Hodgkinson. The student will split their time between two world class research institutes in 3 different locations. Initially, the student will be based at the Riddet Institute, Massey University, Palmerston North developing expertise in pig studies. The student will then travel to Teagasc Food Research Centre - Ashtown, Dublin, Ireland to focus on protein characterisation. The final year will be mainly spent in Teagasc Food Research Centre – Moorepark, Cork, Ireland focussed on digestion and bioavailability studies both in vitro and in vivo under the supervision of Dr Linda Giblin and Dr Andre Brodkorb.
