1 PhD Candidate

The Clinic for Zoo Animals, Exotic Pets and Wildlife of the Vetsuisse Faculty at the University of Zurich (UZHH) seeks to fill the position of 1 PhD candidate (4 years) for a study on the long term effects of weaning calves on a specific diet. Whereas short-term effects of different diets on calf development have been documented in the past, the long-term effects (‘nutritional programming’) of a specific diet on digestive physiology and susceptibility to health problems have not been studied much in ruminants so far.
