The Aquaculturists: Novus WAS Internship Challenge | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it

Novus International, Inc. is pleased to announce the sponsorship of the Novus World Aquaculture Society (WAS) Internship program. Aquaculture has a bright future, as it represents the fastest growing animal production industry. Novus recognises the need for the industry to attract and educate talented individuals to become future aqua research scientists and nutritionists. This internship program represents an investment by Novus into the future of the aquaculture industry. All eligible candidates are encouraged to apply!
Health problems continue to challenge aquaculture development and expansion. Viral, bacterial, fungal or parasite infections whether from new emerging pathogens or well known diseases, often leave producers with few available treatment or prevention options and significant losses. To be considered for the internship please present a proposal that includes the following:
• Choose a model disease and suggest an experiment aimed at testing a novel possible preventive or treatment solution.
• Provide background literature review on the pathogen, pathogenesis, epidemiology and/or host pathogen interactions etc. as appropriate to support experimental designs and hypotheses.
Proposal to be submitted by October 30, 2013 describing an innovative testable proposal in the area described above. Proposals should be limited to two to three typewritten pages plus references. A one-page CV of the candidate should be attached to the proposal. Applicant must be enrolled in a University MSc or PhD program at the time of application.
