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.
