The International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) is now taking candidates who are interested in carrying out postdoctoral research in projects in Kenya. The projects will have to analyze samples that have been collected during the entire spawn of a specific project.
ILRI has a self-professed mission to brush up food and nutritional security around the world, and in developing countries specifically. The research practices the body develops are meant to be efficient, safe and to sustain the use of livestock.
It is the only research centre that comes under the CGIAR initiative to be entirely dedicated to animal agriculture research. As part of the ILRI centre, you will be tasked with various responsibilities, including appropriate assays for screening of human and animal samples.
The award is available for three years with the possibility of renewal upon successful results. Candidates will be expected to have sufficient background experience in order to carry the research as the project is expecting to obtain results. The desired experience from prospective candidates is between 2 and 5 years.
Deadline is available until 7 December 2017. This is the date by which candidates must have sent all their documents in the appropriate firm as well as their statement as to why they should be chosen.
