|Functional Title||Post-Doctoral Fellow|
A highly motivated postdoctoral research fellow is sought for a collaborative project to study the signals that elicit hygienic behavior of honey bees towards brood to combat Varroa mites. This natural defense against the most detrimental parasite is critical for improving honey bee health and ensuring the sustainability of apiculture and its pollination services. The primary location for this project will be the Rueppell lab at UNCG and the project will be performed in collaboration with Marla Spivak (University of Minnesota), Coby Schal (North Carolina State University) and Jocelyn Millar (University of California at Riverside). We seek an independent scientist who is interested in working with us on experiments at the interface between chemical ecology and fundamental and applied apicultural research.
Practical experience with insect behavioral assays, expertise in chemical ecology, and an interest in honey bee health are preferred.
