The Burden of Animal Disease in Working Equids – Ethiopia

University of Liverpool: Institute of Infection, Veterinary and Ecological Sciences, University of Liverpool

About the Project

Working horses, donkeys and mules are a critical part of the global economy contributing towards livelihoods, food security and access to water. Animal diseases (defined as infectious disease, injury, and nutritional deficiencies) have a detrimental impact on welfare as well as constraining the ability of working livestock to contribute to the social, economic and cultural outcomes of society. Understanding how to effectively and efficiently address these impacts requires systematic data collection and analysis in order to quantify and understand the burden of animal diseases on working equids. A four-year project is presented which will initiate the estimation of the Burden of Animal Diseases of Working Equids. The project will be supported by the Global Burden of Animal Diseases (GBADs) programme and The Brooke.

The successful candidate will be primarily based at the Liverpool Campus. Significant periods of time will be spent doing fieldwork abroad. While the primary country of interest is Ethiopia, if security concerns dictate, this project will revert to Kenya. Due to the travel/location(s)/nature of the project we especially encourage applications from international candidates or those with a large degree of travel in their background.

Closing date: Sunday 1 November 2020
