Research opportunity: Pets,  Parasites and People - Epidemiological investigation of companion animal endoparasites in Australia.

Project

Pets,  Parasites and People - Epidemiological investigation of companion animal endoparasites in Australia.

We are currently seeking a MPhil or PhD student to enrol in an industry-funded project titled: Pets, People and Parasites in Australia.

The project will use cutting-edge epidemiological and molecular diagnostic tools to ascertain the current prevalence, distribution and risk factors associated with parasites and vector-borne diseases in dogs and cats in Australia. Not only do these agents impact the health of pets, but many are capable of infecting humans, thus posing a zoonotic risk to family members and the public.

Eligibility

A background in Veterinary Medicine or Science is ideal, but not mandatory. Interested students will be expected to either possess, or successfully apply for a full-time domestic or international RHD scholarship through the University of Melbourne to be eligible.
