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 and electrophysiological techniques. This position will utilize these techniques to characterize the mechanism through which the proteins control agronomically important insect pests.
MS degree in Biochemistry, Insect Physiology, or related field or BS degree in related field with 3-5 yrs relevant laboratory experience. Applicants should have strong analytical skills, be capable of conducting multiple projects simultaneously, and have proficiency in protein biochemistry. The ideal candidate also will have experience in electrophysiology, performing 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.
