canine cancer detection
join our team
If you are interested in becoming part of the canine cancer detection team, we are looking for enthusiastic people who are committed, yet flexible.
What does that mean?
Committed means that team members MUST be able to see the research project through to completion. It can take 6 – 8 months to train a dog to detect a specific type of cancer, and any disruption to the team, may interfere with their learning.
Flexible, means that team members may be required full-time, or part-time during the study, depending on the number of dogs participating and the intensity of their training. And this may change frequently and throughout the duration of the study.
Our canine cancer detection team, humans and canines, work five days per week.
