The EU funded Livestock Production Systems (LIPS)-Zimbabwe Project’s overall objective is ‘Improved productivity and climate-relevance of livestock-based production systems in Zimbabwe’s agro- ecological regions IV and V’. The research will be focused on the following areas:

  2. Investigation of the prevalence of LIPS-Zimbabwe Project priority livestock diseases (Trypanosomiasis, TBDs, NCD, Anthrax, Blackleg and PPR) in selected districts of regions IV and V
  • Modelling the impact of climate change on vector and livestock disease distribution in the selected two regions
  1. Investigation of the presence of reservoir species for LIPS-Zimbabwe Project priority livestock diseases at the wildlife /livestock/human interface (Trypanosomiasis, TBDs, Anthrax, PPR)
  2. Assessment of gaps in the current livestock and zoonotic disease surveillance and response system

Applicants must hold a BVSc/BSc Biological Science degree or its equivalent. In addition, applicants must also have passed their degree with an overall grade equivalent to an upper second (2.2) or better at first sitting in the area of interest.
