MEMORIAL UNIVERSITY OF NEWFOUNDLAND

DEPARTMENT OF OCEAN SCIENCES

FACULTY POSITION IN AQUATIC ANIMAL HEALTH

The Department of Ocean Sciences (DOS), located at the Ocean Sciences Centre (OSC) of Memorial University (http://www.osc.mun.ca/), is building on its strengths in marine science, and invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position to be appointed at the level of assistant professor subject to budgetary approval. The successful candidate will possess a Ph.D. and post-doctoral or equivalent experience and be expected to develop an internationally competitive basic research program related to fish and/or shellfish health including, but not limited to, fields such as immunology, disease detection or prevention, environmental biology, toxicology, genetics, or nutrition. Further, the ideal candidate will be able to conduct research with direct applications to marine aquaculture, and to take advantage of the research infrastructure available through the OSC’s Dr. Joe Brown Aquatic Research Building (JBARB; www.mun.ca/osc/jbarb/) and the newly constructed Deep-Sea and Cold-Water Research Facility (CDRF). This latter facility houses a large level II/III containment lab and specialized research equipment (including tissue culture facilities, an Aria III flow cytometer/cell sorter, a confocal microscope with resonance scanning capabilities, a complete histological suite, and a benchtop scanning electron microscope).

 

The DOS, which is located 12 km north of the university’s main campus in St. John’s, has excellent laboratory and seawater facilities, an active field services unit, and is recognized internationally for the quality and productivity of research programs in marine biology and ecology, aquaculture, marine animal physiology, biochemistry and genomics, and chemical, biological and fisheries oceanography. The mandate of the DOS is to carry out high-quality research focused on organisms and processes in cold oceans, deliver undergraduate and graduate courses in marine sciences, and supervise/mentor honours and graduate (M.Sc. and Ph.D.) students and post-doctoral fellows. At present, the DOS has a core faculty of 15 and a staff of over 40. In addition, over 60 graduate students and post-doctoral fellows are presently conducting research at the OSC.

 

Memorial University is the largest university in Atlantic Canada, and as the Province’s only university, plays an integral role in the education and cultural life of Newfoundland and Labrador. Offering diverse undergraduate and graduate programs to almost 18,000 students, Memorial provides a distinctive and stimulating environment for learning in St. John’s, a safe, friendly city with great historic charm, vibrant cultural life and easy access to a range of outdoor activities.

Aquaculture Drugs and US Regulations On-Line Training Modules

The world has increasingly become a global market place. United States seafood consumption is rising steadily, and a significant portion of that seafood is being grown out of the country. Food that is imported into the US is expected to meet applicable US regulations and requirements for drug use.

 

This training course is designed to clarify how the US regulates drugs for aquaculture. It provides information to identify what drugs may be used and how they should be used to prevent unacceptable residues. It identifies where to look for detailed and current information, and provides a general summary of US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requirements and recommendations for drug use in aquaculture. The training course is designed for foreign producers who export their products to the US and may also be useful for foreign regulators.

Systemic Pathology of Fish Course - European College of Veterinary Pathology (Nantes, France - May 26-28, 2014)

Systemic Pathology of Fish Course  - European College of Veterinary Pathology (Nantes, France - May 26-28, 2014) | Aquatic Vet CEPD & Jobs - continuing education, professional development and job listings | Scoop.it

Hosted by the European College of Veterinary Pathologists and ONIRIS (Université de Nantes, National College of Veterinary Medicine, Food Science & Engineering) in Chantrerie, Nantes, France, this  course is intended for veterinarians and research scientists working in fish diseases. 

The course revolves around diagnostic pathology of fish diseases including those found in farmed, wild and aquarium species in both freshwater and the marine environment. It will approach interpretation of histopathological lesions from a systemic perspective, and will assume a good working knowledge of pathological processes and appropriate terminology in vertebrates in general.

Typical and common diseases will be shown as well as emerging ones in a wide variety of environments. The course will comprise a series of lectures with an afternoon of slide interpretation. Participants are encouraged to bring with them interesting case material (H&E slides only please) for group review and discussions. The language of instruction will be English.

The course instructor will be Professor Hugh W. Ferguson, currently professor of Pathology, School of Veterinary Medicine, St George’s University, Grenada, W. Indies, and Professor Emeritus, University of Stirling, Scotland. Professor Ferguson is an American Board Certified veterinary pathologist, and he brings 40 years of experience as a diagnostic pathologist to his subject. He is author and editor of the standard book “Systemic Pathologist of Fish: a Text and Atlas of Normal Tissues in Teleosts and their Responses in Disease.” This text will be made available to course participants at a discount over the normal price (not included in the registration price).

... The center's degree is an expansion on its week-long dolphin lab program that started in 1985. The college's first students, all women, will graduate in May and the college is looking to expand by offering other degrees in marine mammal professions.

 

Most marine animal caregivers learn through internships, acquiring such skills as how to prepare an animal's meal. The research center's program teaches advanced skills such as how to calculate a diet based on the animal's age, health status or the season. Students learn how to create a diet for a nursing or pregnant mammal ... ... .
