POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCH POSITIONS
A POSTDOCTORAL POSITION is available immediately in the Department of Entomology at Iowa State University to work on the molecular interaction between plant viruses and their aphid vectors. By employing the same methods used in the lab to identify the first plant virus receptor in a vector insect, the goal of this project is to determine whether luteoviruses use the same receptor protein in different vectors, and to delineate the potential role of plant proteins in transmission by the aphid vector. Applicants should have a PhD in entomology, microbiology, biochemistry or a related area. This appointment, funded by the Virus-Insect Interactions Initiative will be for one year with potential for renewal for a second year. Salary will be a minimum of $41,000 according to experience. Interested parties should send the following to Dr. Bryony Bonning, firstname.lastname@example.org in a single pdf file: 1) a cover letter describing how their experience relates to this position, 2) curriculum vitae, and 3) names, e-mail addresses and telephone numbers for three references. To guarantee consideration, applications must be received by September 13th. Review of applications will continue until the position is filled.
INSECT MOLECULAR VIROLOGIST (2014) It is anticipated that there will be an opening for an insect molecular virologist in 2014. If interested, please send your CV to email@example.com
If you are interested in joining the laboratory for a graduate degree, please contact Bryony Bonning by e-mail BBonning@iastate.edu, or contact Kelly Kyle firstname.lastname@example.org for application materials for graduate study in Entomology.
