An important focus of the Animal Health and Food Safety team is to develop robust assays that can detect microbial pathogens as part of routine surveillance or in the case of a disease outbreak. Designing effective assays requires the use of a host of genomic information representing the organisms of interest as well as those to be excluded including close genetic relatives. The candidate will have the opportunity to work on various bioinformatics projects within the group to assist in this process including the analysis of next generation sequencing data in order to build databases of pathogenic microbial genomes for the purposes of identifying assay targets and designing assays based on this information.

Intern candidates must be enrolled at an accredited college or university pursuing a Bachelor's, Master's, or PhD degree. Graduating students are eligible only if they are returning to school the following semester to pursue the next level degree.
