Postdoctoral Researcher in Whitefly-Virus-Plant Interactions

A research opportunity is available with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), Agricultural Research Service (ARS), U.S. Vegetable Laboratory (USVL) in Charleston, South Carolina.

This research project is being conducted to decipher molecular mechanisms involved in whitefly-virus-plant interactions and to develop novel biotechnology tools that are capable of managing whiteflies and whitefly-transmitted viruses in vegetable crops. The participant will assist on research to: 1) Identify and characterize genomics and genetics factors in whiteflies that facilitate efficient virus transmission from whiteflies to plants that contributes to viral diseases in vegetable crops, 2) Develop novel genomics based biotechnologies that would impede virus acquisition and transmission from whiteflies to plants, and 3) Investigate bio-based whitefly management strategies, such as plant genetic resistance and biological controls, that might be employed to decrease threats from whiteflies and associated viruses.

All candidates should have recently graduated (within last 5 years) with a doctorate degree in Entomology, Plant Pathology or Biology-related disciplines.

  The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
