Graduate Degree in Entomology at the University of Georgia - toxicology
Insecticide resistance in whitefly pest populations in the SE USA has been an on-going issue for many years. A new USDA funded project in the University of Georgia Vegetable Entomology Laboratory, Project Leader David Riley https://ent.uga.edu/people/faculty/david-riley.html, is initiating an effort to fully characterize insecticide resistant whitefly populations in Georgia. The assistantship (either MS or PhD) will be specifically focused on the toxicology whiteflies, including dose-response (LC50) determinations, induction of metabolic detoxification and testing for pre- and post-treatment responses, and molecular techniques for determining the presence and frequency of insecticide resistance genes. This position will be part of a large working group developing improved management practices for whiteflies in the SE USA.
