The successful candidate will be involved in the development of research protocols, data collection, and analysis of data to integrate functional genomics, physiological, and behavioral measures to mitigate the cumulative effects of in utero heat stress on swine health, performance, and welfare. Specifically, the research focus will be to develop a functional genomics approach to identify genomic and epigenomic biomarkers and enable selective breeding of sows that are at a minimal risk of producing offspring that display negative postnatal in utero heat stress phenotypes.
