Teagasc Masters Walsh Scholarship Opportunity On “Using The Latest Technology To Reduce In-Field Fertiliser Nitrogen Emissions And Enhance Agronomic Performance”

Deadline: 08 April 2024 I. Background Applications are open for a self-motivated, enthusiastic student to undertake a fully funded 2-year Research Masters project. You will investigate the potential of urease and nitrification inhibitors to reduce emissions from nitrogen and nitrogen plus sulphur fertilisers. This scholarship is funded by the Department of Agriculture Food and the Marine as part of a larger project focused on the efficacy and safety of inhibitors (Grant number 2021R477).

Masters Scholarship on “Predicting the impact of climate change on Pasture-based Irish farms”

Deadline:  10 May 2023 Background The Irish grazing system is based on an extended grazing season and the maximisation of grass in the animals’ diet. However, grass growth is highly seasonal and is dependent on soil type and weather conditions. Therefore, climate change is expected to have a substantial impact on grass growth (both on yield and pattern), which could impact the sustainability of the pasture based Irish system. This MSc will employ the Moorepark St Gilles

Fully Funded Masters Scholarship Opportunity On “Molecular Signatures Of Cattle Stress At Slaughter, The Microbiome, And Impact On Eating Quality Of Beef”

Deadline: 26 March 2023 Background There is substantial evidence for a relationship between stress and eating quality in meat animals. In ruminants, stress level and in particular pre-slaughter stress affects diverse aspects of meat quality including juiciness and tenderness, colour and pH. Furthermore, the physiological and biochemical pathways determining meat quality differ in stressed versus unstressed animals. Finally, while the interaction of the production regime with the gastr

Fully Funded Master’s Scholarship | Characterization of Non-Volatile Dietary Biomarkers in Forage, Feed, Meat.

Deadline: 31March 2023 I. Background Fresh and conserved pasture swards and other green forages contain carotenoids that cause yellow colour to develop in the fat of ruminants when such forages are eaten regularly. The main pigment responsible is β-carotene, and to a lesser extent lutein. Fat colour and carotenoids are prominent among a number of measurements, which can aid the authentication of dietary history of ruminant meat. The use of carotenoid pigments has become established m

Fully Funded Post graduate Scholarship| "Dairy Grassland Management At Low Chemical Nitrogen - Defining A Blueprint For Multispecies Swards For Agronomic And Environmental Benefits”

Deadline: 20 March 2023 I. Background The Irish dairy sector urgently needs to stabilize and reduce gaseous emissions whilst improving water quality and biodiversity levels. The research topic of this Scholarship aligns with Ireland’s Agri-Food Strategy 2030, targeting a climate-neutral food system by 2050, with verifiable progress achieved by 2030. Within intensively managed agricultural grasslands, recent results demonstrate important benefits of multi-species mixtures, which offe

Fully Funded Masters Scholarship On “Reducing Fertilizer Nitrogen Emissions In Field Using Nitrification And Urease Inhibitor Technologies”

Deadline: 10 April 2023   Background This is a call for a self-motivated, enthusiastic student to undertake a fully funded 2-year Research Masters project. You will investigate the potential of urease and nitrification inhibitors to reduce emissions from nitrogen and nitrogen plus sulphur fertilizers. This scholarship is funded by the Department of Agriculture Food and the Marine as part of a larger project focused on the efficacy and safety of inhibitors (Grant number 2021R477

Full funded African Graduates Fellowships| The American University of Cairo

Deadline: 15 January 2023 The African Graduate Fellowship is a competitive fellowship program for bright, highly motivated African students interested in pursuing a master's degree at The American University in Cairo (AUC). Each year, fellowships are offered to nationals of African countries (not including Egyptians) for full-time study; nine credits or as required by the program in any of the graduate programs offered at the AUC. I. Eligibility Non-Egyptian African nationa

Teagasc Msc Walsh Scholarship Opportunity: Optimizing Grazing Infrastructure On Dairy And Beef Farms

Deadline: 5 August 2022 Background Increasing grass utilization is a key driver in increasing net profit and farm sustainability on grassland farms. Improved grassland management relies upon robust grazing infrastructure, that is; appropriately sized paddocks with multiple access points, serviced by roadways of sufficient quality and an adequate supply of drinking water. Grazing infrastructure is generally underdeveloped on many grassland farms. Appropriate partitioning of the graz

Teagasc Masters Walsh Scholarship opportunity: “VistaMilkDigest–Assessing the impact of milk proteins on tissue-metabolome"

Deadline: 5 August 2022 Teagasc and partners are seeking an MSc candidate to undertake a project to investigate the effect of dairy ingredients on the metabolic activity in organs. The work will be undertaken in the Digestive-Characteristics of Dairy Product-Platform within the €40 Million VistaMilk Research Centre  and the Nutrition, Biomarkers and Health Research group in University College Dublin (UCD). The MSc student will conduct a specified programme of taught and research
