Title Doctoral research opportunities in Veterinary Parasitology at Charles Sturt University
Location Wagga Wagga, NSW
Job Information

The School of Animal and Veterinary Sciences at Charles Sturt University, in Wagga Wagga, New South Wales, is looking for two exceptional candidates to undertake two new and exciting research projects.

Both candidates will be expected to enrol in and complete a Doctor of Philosophy or Doctor of Veterinary Studies at CSU.

One project will investigate the impact on industry and diagnosis and control of Fasciola hepatica in Australian sheep and cattle.

The other project involves a multi-institution collaboration that could revolutionise the control of gastrointestinal helminths of Australian livestock.

It is envisaged that a tax free annual stipend of at least $35,000 plus accompanying operating funds will be available for up to three and a half years for each project.

Both projects include excellent opportunities for industry and international research collaboration and possibly international travel.

Considerable mentoring and support will be provided for both positions, and both candidates will also be involved in commercial veterinary parasitology diagnostic work within the CSU Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory.

Potentially interested applicants are strongly encouraged to contact Dr Rob Woodgate (rwoodgate@csu.edu.au or 0477 431 045) for additional information.
