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, 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. Send your resume/CV and unofficial college transcripts to Dr. Riley for consideration.
