Research Associate (156):
We are seeking a motivated and articulate postdoctoral researcher to study arthropod vectors of plant viruses. Our research is devoted to investigating plant-virus-vector interactions with the goal of developing a better understanding of the complex sequence of events leading to virus acquisition and transmission by vectors. The scientist will use molecular, cellular, and –omics approaches to study plant-virus-vector interactions. A variety of pathosystems are studied in the lab, including tospovirus-thrips, rhabdovirus-planthopper, and luteovirus-aphid. The candidate will also mentor undergraduate researchers in the exploration of possible links between virus infection status and vector physiology and behaviors. The candidate must be able to work in a multi-cultural setting and have a strong commitment to promoting diversity in the workplace.
