Post-Doctoral Research Associate Position Announcement
Natural enemies and ecosystem services in cucurbit production systems
Post-doctoral Research Associate in Entomology/Applied Ecology – two-year appointment in the Department of Entomology at Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana.
The successful candidate will evaluate ecosystem services provided by natural enemies in cucurbit production systems. This will include determining key natural enemy/pest interactions using combinations of field experiments and lab bioassays to measure pesticide exposure and predation/parasitism/pathogens with contemporary field, laboratory and molecular techniques. This research is part of a regional team effort working on the compatibility of cucurbit pest management practices and pollinator health.
