The University of Copenhagen PhD Fellowship in Denmark offers piglet nutrition in the 2022/2023 academic session
The major goal of this PhD research is to integrate information about gut metabolism and maturation, as well as muscle development in piglets throughout their early lives, in order to improve piglet survival and growth in big litters.
The effort is part of the Pig Levy Fund-funded project Tarm og muskel, Nringstoffer og Tilvkst TNT (Svineafgiftsfonden).
The study will include two piglet trials, one concentrating on maximizing nutrition and survival during the first few days of life and the other on gut maturation and muscle development, with numerous feeding regimens being tested against each other in a controlled research setting at UCPH.
Nutritional in vivo tests will be combined with laboratory evaluations of muscle fiber formation, growth, and gut maturation factors in this research.

- Under supervision, doing an autonomous research project.
