PhD project title:
The role of wild deer in the transmission of diseases of livestock
We are seeking a PhD student to work on a collaborative project between the Virology laboratory at La Trobe University and the Arthur Rylah Institute in Victoria, Australia. The project will include examination of wild deer viromes to determine shared pathogenic viral species between wild deer and cows. This data will be used to map potential viral transmission frequencies between the two species to inform future strategies in regards to agricultural viral biosecurity in Australia. Previous experience in working with viruses or molecular biology techniques, and bioinformatics would be beneficial, but is not essential.
If you are interested, please contact Dr Karla Helbig at firstname.lastname@example.org, and include your CV, and a copy of your masters or honours undergraduate transcripts.
