The Australian Centre for Disease Preparedness (ACDP) is a vital part of Australia’s biosecurity infrastructure. Our team works closely with researchers, animal and human health agencies to protect Australia’s livestock and aquaculture industries, and the general public, from emerging infectious disease threats.

As an experienced virologist, the Research Scientist – Lumpy Skin Disease Research, will join the Lumpy Skin Disease (LSD) research team at the ACDP.  A focus of the LSD research team is to undertake and support research and development activities that deliver to the National Lumpy Skin Disease Action plan, as well as to facilitate research for CSIRO’s research programs. LSD is a vector borne disease of cattle and is considered to be one of the most economically important viral diseases of cattle, due to its impacts on animal health, production and trade. As the disease is now present in South-East Asia, you will support key preparedness activities, develop our research portfolio and contribute to enhanced response capability should incursion occur.
