PhD on surgical castration in neonatal piglets

Department of Population Health and Pathobiology, NCSU 
Raleigh, USA


A three to four-year position for a PhD is available with the Department of Population Health and
Pathobiology at North Carolina State University College of Veterinary Medicine. The candidate
will be located in Raleigh, NC and play an integral role in the implementation of a large study
validating behavioral-based endpoints that reliably measure pain associated with surgical
castration in neonatal piglets. The ideal candidate must have extensive experience collecting
and analyzing behavioral data and should have experience working with different technological
platforms (cameras, video editing, case study design software, etc.) In addition, the candidate
must have experience working with swine and be well educated on the commercial swine
industry in the US. The candidate should have earned either a DVM or MS degree (in a field
related to veterinary medicine or animal sciences with preference for welfare experience) and be
able to work independently and collaboratively with colleagues that are part of the Animal
Welfare and Behavior Lab at NCSU.
