Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral Research Scholar – DEPP
The Postdoctoral Research Scholar will coordinate a project with the goal of developing sustainable pest management strategies for the western flower thrips (WFT) on tomatoes and peppers in diversified agroecosystems. A major focus will be to identify temporal habitats across farmscapes that serve as seasonal hosts of WFT, and to use this information to develop and test habitat-based preventive management tactics (e.g., adjusting the spatial-temporal arrangement of crops, crop rotation, weed management) that reduce the risk of infestation in tomatoes and peppers. The project will require extensive sampling of thrips and natural enemies, and statistical analysis to quantify habitat suitability and understand interactions among thrips, natural enemies and host plant communities. Insecticide resistance among WFT populations from different agricultural production systems will also be assessed. The incumbent will be expected to publish in peer-reviewed journals, develop extension content for educating stakeholders, present results of the project at scientific and grower/commodity meetings, prepare project reports, and supervise technical staff and student workers.
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral Research Scholar
A postdoctoral research scholar position is immediately available; the successful candidate will lead DOD and NIH-funded projects. One project aims to improve the outcome of intestinal transplantation by decreasing ischemia-reperfusion injury that occurs during traditional storage methods. A second project is studying the role of the injury resistant intestinal stem cell population to mediate repair following prolonged ischemic injury. The projects involve benchtop cell culture experiments (2D and 3D intestinal stem cell culture), flow- cytometry, immunofluorescence, ex-vivo normothermic machine perfusion, studies using surgical pig models, and potentially some rodent work. This will be a two-year minimum position.
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral Research Scholar (Attribution) The Postdoctoral Research Scholar will contribute to climate science analyses and perform targeted cutting-edge research on the causes of extreme weather and climate-related events as well as associated sustained attribution activities. This will include the use of traditional climate monitoring frameworks to help define the boundaries of events, synthesis of different climate trend and climate variability components which may be responsible for climate extremes, leveraging seasonal hindcast data sets to assess how the probability density function (PDF) of daily variability (and its extremes) is influenced by climate trend and climate variability, and assessment of private-sector and public-partner attribution needs. Targeted research topics may include meteorological interpretation of extreme event trends, causes of regional variations, and weather system analysis of CMIP6 simulations.
Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral Research Associate
The postdoctoral research scholar will use single molecule time-resolved fluorescence microscopy and spectroscopy to study the detailed mechanisms of ribosome assembly. Specifically, we are interested in exploring the mechanism of action of key ATPases in the pathway.
