Location: ETH Zurich, Switzerland

The Niu Lab at ETH Zurich is seeking two motivated, team-oriented individuals with a strong interest in the interface of basic and applied research in agricultural and animal nutrition sciences to enhance understanding of nutrient utilization efficiency and improve the sustainability of livestock systems.

The potential research topics include:

  • Investigate dietary strategies to mitigate environmental impacts (GHG emissions and N excretions) of dairy cattle
  • Understand the gut microbial composition of dairy cattle in response to dietary changes
  • Assess the impact of climate changes on dairy cattle
  • Integrate precision dairy farming technologies and data analysis, mathematical and statistical modelling and artificial intelligence to improve the health and welfare of dairy cattle

A recording of the GRA CSA side event, which took place during the Africa Science and Partnership for Agriculture Conference (SPAC) in September 2022 in Accra, Ghana, co-hosted by NZAGRC and ILRI, is now available.

The side event titled “Gaining Ground: A Workshop to Strengthen collaborations to advance Climate-Smart Agriculture” sought to showcase science-based practices that illustrate pathways to climate-smart, low-emission agricultural development and to identify steps needed to improve global and regional collaboration for long-term climate-smart agriculture (CSA) transformation.

Participants reported the training and experience exchanges were very useful for improving the design of CSA practices. Insights emerged related to illustrating adaptation and mitigation co-benefits, enhancing collaboration between research institutions and governments, scaling viable CSA technologies, efficient communication channels, robust data collection/information management systems, and that local adoption requires demonstrating the efficacy of CSA interventions in each national context.

Speakers at the side event included:

  • Dr Claudia Arndt, Senior Scientist and Co-leader, Mazingira Centre ILRI, Kenya
  • Dr Ackim Mwape, Africa Programme Lead NZAGRC, New Zealand
  • Dr Wilhelmina Quaye, Director CSIR-Science and Technology Policy Research Institute, Ghana
  • Dr Kofi Konadu Boateng, Program Associate for Agriculture, Global Methane Hub (GMH)
