The candidate is expected to support and lead research to identify critical practices in the animal feed industry that minimize hazards and feed-related biological risks and develop highly applicable practices that promote feed and feed mill biosecurity. The successful candidate will be self-motivated, but work well in a team to conduct research to establish the risk, transmission, and mitigation of hazards through feed or ingredients. Furthermore, the successful candidate will collaborate with other researchers in parallel disciplines, such as livestock, poultry, and pet food safety, microbiology, veterinary epidemiology, virology, and infectious disease. The candidate shall create an environment that fosters diversity, collegiality, and must have the ability to work in a multi-cultural and multi-disciplinary setting.

Candidates must be able to perform experiments independently, prepare research reports, including poster and oral presentations, and submit manuscripts for publication. Candidates must be willing to work effectively in a collaborative environment and be willing to learn applied and basic research techniques. Candidates will be expected to maintain at least a 3.0 GPA in required coursework.

The position offers full tuition, a competitive stipend, and Graduate Student benefits.

Fellowships and Postdoctorals

Kansas Agriculture & Food Policy Fellowship

The Kansas Food & Agricultural Policy Fellowship Program (Ag Fellows) provides a premier leadership opportunity for Kansas Undergraduate or graduate students studying a food and agricultural field to serve the state's agricultural industry and gain valuable public policy experience at both the state and federal levels. Ag Fellows will develop a deeper understanding for the legislative and regulatory processes and about how laws and regulations impact the entire food chain-from farm gate to consumer.

While this experience prepares students to enter the workforce serving Kansas agriculture, it also enhances their ability to advocate for laws and regulations that allow Kansas farmers, ranchers and agribusinesses to thrive and grow.

Ag Fellows will complete two separate experiences – one at the state level and one at the federal level – with either a legislative or congressional office, a state or federal agency, or a food or agricultural membership organization or business. Upon completion of the program, Ag Fellows will be equipped with necessary skills and knowledge to be productive leaders in the agricultural industry. Working with a state legislator, state agency, or state membership organization is a crucial component of the program. At the federal level, Ag Fellows will get a behind-the-scenes experience in the inner-workings of the federal policy process. From day-to-day, fellows may fill different roles within the office and will be exposed to a wide variety of experiences For more information, visit the Kansas Agriculture & Food Policy Fellowship website or contact Susan Metzger. All applications are due via e-mail by 5pm on October 31, 2019.
