A five-year research post is offered at the Fisheries Research station of the Agricultural center for cattle, grassland, dairy, game and fisheries of Baden-Württemberg (LAZBW) in Langenargen, Germany.

?River engineering works, such as water power plants or alterations for flood control, heavily impact freshwater ecosystems and fish populations. In addition, climate change, new fish diseases, and invasive species offer further challenges to native fish stocks. For these reasons, it is becoming more and more challenging to conserve or establish self-sustaining populations of highly endangered fish species but also to preserve relatively intact fish stocks at natural levels that support fisheries and maintain ecosystem functions. It is thus imperative to identify and rank effective and long-lasting fisheries management options.

The main objective of the research group TMI, headed by Dr. Kyungbo Kim, is to discover novel transport mechanisms in the human intestinal tract which could be utilized for oral-systemic delivery of diverse therapeutic modalities (e.g., peptides, oligonucleotides, and antibodies). Studies will involve screening ligands, generating intestinal organoids from murine and human subjects, isolating intestinal cells, and creating a co-culture system. The project's cores are to develop a ligand specific for a target cell and establish quantitative assessment methods to monitor macromolecular drug delivery across the intestinal epithelial barrier. Our final goal is to create a novel delivery platform, which can be utilized for the development of a new generation of oral immunotherapies to benefit patients.

‘Microbiome-mediated functions of avian preen glands: understanding the chemosignalling and antimicrobial potentials’:

Birds are inhabited by communities of micro-organisms, that fulfil beneficial functions for their hosts. Some scientists therefore propose that animals should not be considered as animals, but as meta-organisms – obligate symbiotic life forms of animals with their micro-organisms. Until recently, most attention has focused on gut microbes. This project will investigate which micro-organisms live in preen glands of birds, from different angles. Using metagenomic approaches to address the microbiome, we will investigate how and if these micro-organisms produce chemosignalling and antimicrobial substances. We will further verify whether these micro-organisms and their chemical metabolites contribute to the communication between birds and to the antimicrobial protection of their plumage – through preening of feathers. Moreover, the project will experimentally evaluate associations between preen gland, oral cavity, feathers and gut microbiomes. We expect to find clear and robust associations between microbial functions and life history strategies of birds.

The Animal Production and Health Division (NSA) promotes and facilitates the sustainable development of the livestock sector, integrating scientific and technical expertise and policy advice. It hosts technical networks in area of animal health, genetics, feed and animal husbandry and provides analysis, policy dialogue (incl. intergovernmental bodies) and technical assistance. It also supports emergency responses, mostly in animal health. FAO's global effort on One Health is involves multiple divisions and the decentralised and national offices, with overall co-ordination through the Joint Centre for Zoonoses and AMR (CJWZ), with the Chief Veterinary Officer (CVO) being both the Director of the Joint Centre and Leader of the Animal Health Programme (NSAH).

The post is located in the Animal Health Service (NSAH). The FAO Animal Health Service (NSAH) is primarily concerned with aspects related to the prevention, detection and timely response to health threats of animal origin (zoonotic diseases, transboundary animal diseases, production diseases, diseases of wildlife, arthropod-borne diseases, food safety, antimicrobial resistance) that affect public health or efficiencies, sustainable livestock production and conservation efforts. NSAH capacity development work ensures the strengthening of veterinary systems at national and regional level and bridges agriculture development, public health and ecosystem health.

The African Forum for Agricultural Advisory Services (AFAAS) is soliciting the services of a qualified and experienced Communications and Engagement Media Junior Expert (Consultant) to support the communication function and therefore contribute to the achievement of the AFAAS goals and objectives. The assignment shall initially be for six months (06) effective August up to January 2022, renewable based on performance, need and availability of funding.

The European Commission for the Control of Foot and Mouth Disease (EuFMD) plays a significant role in the animal health part of FAO’s programme to increase resilience of livelihoods to food and agriculture threats and crises (SO5).

The EuFMD is an Article XIV body responsible to its Member Nations and donors to deliver an extensive work programme on FMD emergency preparedness, response and control, to its 39 Member Nations, to a further 20 European neighbourhood countries, and to other regions through its arrangement with FAO decentralized offices. Most recently, the HOLD-FAST strategy continues the focus upon Foot-and-Mouth Disease (FMD) risk reduction but extends the scope of the preparedness and risk reduction activities to similar Transboundary Animal Diseases (TADs) which pose an immediate threat to the Member Nations (hereafter FAST is used for Foot-and-mouth and similar transboundary animal diseases). Full details are available in the EuFMD work programme.
