This call offers a 3-year doctoral fellowship at the University of Lleida (Spain) in the field of the use of genomic tools in selected pigs resistant to infectious diseases.
This is an offer for a PhD scholarship (3 years) to be performed in the frame of a Research Project funded by the Spanish Reserach Ministry. The project involves the use of biomarkers and genomic data to identify pigs that show a more resilient phenotype in field conditions.
The candidate is expected to help gathering the field data, and perform lab work related to DNA/RNA isolation, and amplification and sequencing of target genes. High-throughput genotyping data and whole-genome sequencing data will be obtained in the course of this project. The candidate will also be trained in the analysis and interpretation of these data.
