PhD Assistantship in Insect Agroecology

PhD Assistantship in Insect Agroecology

PhD research assistantships are available to join a collaborative research project working on aspects of agricultural mitigation/adaptation and climate change in the Inland Pacific Northwest (IPNW). Students will work with mentors and study transformational and incremental approaches to increasing resiliency to climate change in IPNW wheat-based cropping systems. One of these will focus on the effects of alternative systems on the composition and function of insect communities associated with alternative production systems.

Graduate Research Assistantship in Stored Product Entomology

Graduate Research Assistantship in Stored Product Entomology

One graduate research assistantship is available for a Ph.D. student in the Department of Entomology at Kansas State University. The research will focus on the development of behaviorally-based management strategies such as attract-and-kill and the use of long-lasting insecticide netting to prevent infestation by a range of stored product insects (e.g., red flour beetle, lesser grain borer, Indian meal moth) in mills, warehouses, and other facilities. This will include laboratory assays, semi-field experiments, and field trials.
