Dear Sir

I am a lecturer of Parasitology, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Cairo 
University, Cairo, Egypt.

I have the interset to obtain a POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP in the field of
IMMUNOPARASITOGY or  PARASITIC VACCINE PRODUCTION.

I got my Master's degree in 1988 on "Coccidian parasites infecting stray
dogs in Egypt" and Ph.D. in 1993 on "Babesia species infecting cattle
and buffaloes in Egypt". 

I spent two years (1991-1993) at the Department of Parasitology, National 
Veterinary Institute, Uppsala, Sweden as a research scholar.

Please find enclose my C.V. for your consideration,
Thank you for your time,
Waiting for your reply,

Sincerely yours
