TeagascCork€30,327 to €40,627

Job Summary Duration: Temporary Externally Funded Non Grant-in-Aid contract post, the indicative duration of which is 12 months , subject to contract. A panel may be formed from which future similar vacancies may be filled; such a panel will remain active for a maximum period of 12 months. We are seeking a highly motivated and enthusiastic Technician to work on a fast-paced Food for Health Ireland (FHI) project which is industry supported. The successful candidate will join the Fermentates team which is seeking to develop fermented milks with demonstrated health promoting activities. Their primary function will be to assist in the development of fermentates and to investigate how these fermentates behave during simulated gastric digestion. Thus, the position will require a person with qualifications in microbiology, biochemistry or related discipline and an understanding of gastrointestinal food digestion and associated in vitro models are desirable. They will be required to report on their work both to the team at Moorepark and to the broader FHI team on a regular basis. Food for Health Ireland (FHI) unites world-class science and industry expertise to improve health through innovation in food. Its purpose is to identify novel ingredients coming from milk to develop functional food ingredients that will offer health benefits to consumers. FHI links world-class academic research with industry vision for the potential of successful market innovations. The industry-focused research strategy within FHI includes the identification, development and exploitation of novel milk-derived bioactive compounds for improving health and wellbeing. FHI also provides a pipeline for the development of new functional food ingredients and products with validated health benefits for consumers. The FHI approach is to work with Irish food industry partners and in close connection with scientists. FHI has built a unique bridge between high-class research organisations and industry needs. This FHI-funded position will be located at the Teagasc Food Research Centre, Moorepark and is part of the Food Programme. The Teagasc Food Programme is located at two sites, Moorepark and Ashtown in Dublin. The programme is based on applied research which involves significant industry engagement. In addition to its own programme, Teagasc participates in many large research initiatives (APC Microbiome Ireland, VistaMilk Centre, the Dairy Production Technology Centre, the Meat Technology Centre, Food for Health Ireland) with industry partners and other research providers in the third level sector. The Moorepark site has significant food and health related research infrastructure to support this project including the Teagasc/APC Microbiome Ireland DNA Sequencing Centre, laboratory and pilot scale fermentation equipment and food digestion models in addition to well-equipped microbiology, biochemistry and food chemistry laboratories. Job Objectives Other As this role may involve driving vehicles, candidates must satisfy and continue to satisfy during employment with Teagasc, legal requirements to drive a car unaccompanied on Irish public roads. Eligibility This is an open public competition. Should a current serving Teagasc staff member be successful in their application through open public competition for this post, their current contract of employment with Teagasc will come to an end on taking up this post.  Note: The ‘essential’ qualifications, knowledge, skills and behavioural competencies outlined above are ‘must-have’ which will be used in the selection process.

Listeria Challenge Studies

TeagascCork€30,327 to €40,627

Job Summary Duration: Temporary Externally Funded Non Grant-in-Aid contract post, the indicative duration of which is 18 months , subject to contract. A panel may be formed from which future similar vacancies may be filled; such a panel will remain active for a maximum period of 12 months. Under the guidance of the project leader, the appointee will be responsible for conducting challenge or shelf-life studies to determine the growth of Listeria monocytogenes on a range of relevant food matrices. The role will also involve generating data on certain key phenotypic traits of our Listeria monocytogenes strain collection and correlation of the observed phenotypes with previously generated genome sequence data. A successful outcome of the work will be a comparative analysis of challenge studies methodologies which can inform future EURL guideline revisions.  The Listeria Challenge Studies project is a multi-RPO collaborative project funded by the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine. The overall objective of this project is to obtain scientific data to underpin proposed changes to simplify the EU Reference Laboratory (EURL) guidelines for undertaking challenge studies to determine the ability of a food to support the growth of L. monocytogenes, and to generate more effective predictive microbiology models that simplify risk assessment for food producers. This will form the basis of a user-friendly industry tool specifically designed for the Irish situation allowing food companies to determine whether their products will or will not support the growth of L. monocytogenes, ultimately aiding their compliance with EC Regulation 2073/2005, resulting in safer food for the consumer.

Post Doctoral

TeagascCork€37,028 to €41,025

Job Summary Duration: Temporary Externally Funded Non Grant-in-Aid contract post, the indicative duration of which is 6 months , subject to contract. A panel may be formed from which future similar vacancies may be filled; such a panel will remain active for a maximum period of 12 months. The Pig Development Department at Teagasc, Moorepark was awarded funding from Enterprise Ireland (EI) to develop a probiotic for pigs in collaboration with Waterford Institute of Technology (WIT). Arising from this funding, this position is now available. The candidate will work on the Teagasc tasks in the project, which involve exploring mechanisms of action of a Bacillus probiotic supplement for pigs. The selected candidate will be involved in laboratory and bioinformatic work, both at Moorepark and WIT, dissemination of findings and reporting to EI. The Teagasc post-doctoral programme provides training and development opportunities for early career scientists that enhances their experience of learning and equips them with the necessary skills for the next stage of their chosen career in research.  While the candidate will be based at the Pig Development Department at Teagasc Moorepark, they may be required to travel to WIT to conduct laboratory work, as necessary. The background to the project is that the routine use of in-feed antibiotics was banned in the EU in 2006 and the number permitted under veterinary prescription for pigs is now also restricted. The use of pharmacological levels of Zinc Oxide (ZnO) is also being phased out and will no longer be permitted in the EU after 2022. Effective alternative feed additives which can achieve at least the same level of benefits to the animal as in-feed antibiotics/ZnO are therefore required. Probiotics are one such alternative. A team of researchers at Teagasc Moorepark/WIT have isolated and characterised a Bacillus strain which has now been shown to be an effective probiotic for pigs. This project will explore mechanisms of action of the probiotic. The PD Fellow will, while working in conjunction with senior research staff, gain insight and experience into a variety of areas including the processes of project and budgetary management, publishing in peer-reviewed academic journals, writing grant applications, and attracting external funding; the development of active collaboration with relevant national and international research communities; the development of communication and presentation skills, leadership and management skills, and overall career development.This is a research focused training role, the primary purpose of which is to provide early career scientists with the opportunity to develop their research skills and competencies. Modules will be conducted under the supervision and direction of the (Project Leader) or other designated manager in conjunction with the Head of Department.
