Discovery, development, and stewardship of insect control traits requires a thorough understanding of the mode of action of the trait proteins. Many candidate proteins act through mechanisms that disrupt insect midgut function and can be characterized by biochemical assays based on ligand-receptor interactions or functional reporter cell-based systems. This position will utilize these techniques to characterize the mechanism through which the proteins control agronomically important insect pests.
PhD in Biochemistry or related field with 1-3 yrs industry or relevant postdoctoral experience. Applicants should have strong analytical skills, be capable of leading multiple projects simultaneously, and have proficiency in protein biochemistry. The ideal candidate also will have experience in performing ligand binding assays and/or working with cell culture systems. The successful candidate should be self-motivated, capable of working independently or as part of a group, and competent in written and oral reporting.
