MSc graduate student at UC Vet Med – animal health economics

May I ask you to please circulate/post the attached call for applicants for an MSc graduate student in our Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Dept. of Ecosystem and Public Health at the University of Calgary. The research is investigating the economic impact and mitigation strategies related to infectious bronchitis of poultry in Canada. A veterinary degree is *not* required for this MSc position, but would be useful; a student with a background in agriculture and/or economics would also be an excellent fit.
