Pork CRC Professional Pathways Pays

13 September 2012, at 7:14am

AUSTRALIA - There has never been a better time to become involved in Australia’s pork industry, with the innovative, well resourced CRC for High Integrity Australian Pork (Pork CRC) now offering honours and postgraduate awards, which pay up to A$38,500 per year.

More than $7 million of research and development funding has been allocated by the Pork CRC in 2012/13 to support and develop Australia’s pork industry, which employs 20,000 people and contributes $2.8 billion to Australia’s gross domestic product.

According to Pork CRC CEO, Dr Roger Campbell, those existing Pork CRC projects most likely to support honours and postgraduate students have been identified, including the need for a postgraduate student in Sub Programme 1B.

“The successful applicant will study piglet nutrition and management under new housing and weaning systems we’re developing and also enjoy travel and training opportunities with our international collaborators and participants,“ he said.

Postgraduate applications are also being sought in Sub Programme 4B – optimising the processing of grains to enhance feed efficiency and reduce carbon outputs.
