Grad studies opportunity

A graduate study opportunity. Posted on behalf of Dr. Jeroen De Buck.
A position for a PhD student is available in the department of Production Animal Health at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, University of Calgary (UCVM). The cuttting-edge and multidisciplinary research in this dynamic department focuses on the most important diseases of domestic animals. We are currently looking for a student with strong molecular skills and an interest to work with young dairy calves. This position is open for people holding a degree in biological sciences, animal sciences, veterinary or health sciences or equivalent degree. A DVM degree will be seen as a strong bonus but is not a strict requirement. The candidate should have an appropriate problem solving attitude, good communication skills, and be willing and able to work in team as well as independently.
