OPEN POSTDOCTORAL POSITION
We have an open postdoctoral position in the López-Uribe lab at Penn State University to work on the disease ecology of honey bee genetic stocks. Qualified candidates are required to have a Ph.D. in entomology, biology, or related fields of study. The primary responsibilities of the person in this position will be to work on behavioral assays of honey colonies, quantify viral loads (via qPCR) and immunological responses of different honey bee genetic stocks. In addition, there will be opportunities to get involved in extension work transferring knowledge from this research to beekeepers in the northeastern region. Expertise in quantitative PCR and expression analysis is required. Previous experience working with honey bees is desirable. The person in this position will involve grant writing, mentoring of graduate and undergraduate students, and outreach/extension activities.

Currently, there are no funded positions for MSc or PhD students. However, I am always interested in discussing possibilities with prospective students whose research interests align with our lab! Check out our Research website for more details. If interested in discussing, please send me an email with (1) your CV, (2) detailed description of research interests, (3) motivation for obtaining a MSc or PhD degree, and (4) details about specific projects you are interested in pursuing.
Soon (Fall 2022), we will have two postdoctoral positions open from NSF and USDA funded projects. One in quantitative genetics and the other one in spatial ecology. If you are looking for a postdoctoral position and have this expertise, please contact me via email including your CV, a clear explanation of your research background and why our lab would be a good fit for your career. In addition, I am always happy to discuss ideas for proposals and/or fellowship applications to work on independent projects that align with the research themes of the lab.
