A re-examination of the nutritional effects of dietary fibre in pre-wean piglet using a novel nutrient kinetics approach


We are looking for an intern for 3-6 months who can perform a literature study on the nutritional effects of dietary fibre in diets for piglets pre-weaning. The study can encompass: searching literature, making literature review, making an overview of potential fibre sources for pre-weaning diets, calculating nutrient kinetics for different diets. As intern, you will have the opportunity to help out on the research farm or to help out in different other running projects.
