EGS-ABG offers a European programme shaped to train the current and future generations of animal breeders to meet the challenges presented by the increasing demand of food while reducing the impacts on environment and biodiversity. If mastered, the emergence of genomics should provide means to solve this equation. The aim of EGS-ABG is to generate the future key international leaders of the animal breeding and genetics sector, whether for employment in academia or in industry. The duration of the doctoral programme is 4 years. It includes carrying out an independent research work on a specific topic (the PhD project). The main characteristics of the PhD project are: * The project is jointly supervised by two partner institutions. * The research to be undertaken involves compulsory mobility periods from one institution to the other (typically 3+1 or 2+2 years in the two host institutions). * An internship period of 3 to 6 months, in industry or in one academic associated partner, is encouraged.
