Postdoc & grad student (MS or PhD) positions available in biocontrol

Purdue University is leading a newly funded USDA SCRI (Specialty Crop Research Initiative) project on sustainable insect management in high tunnels. As part of this work, we are recruiting 3 new postdocs and/or graduate students (either MS or PhD). Two of these individuals will focus on the entomology portion of the project, whereas one will emphasize horticultural aspects of crop production.
Start date: January to May 2023
Compensation: Postdoc salary is $49,000/yr. Graduate student stipends are $26,000/yr with tuition waver included. Both are benefits-eligible positions (e.g., insurance); for additional information see: https://www.purdue.edu/hr/benewell/
Qualifications: All positions entail substantial field research so candidates should be interested in working outdoors in agricultural settings with background/interests in insects, ecology, plant sciences and/or horticulture. Candidates should be enthusiastic about application and communicating results with grower cooperators, as well as sharing data with research audiences.
