Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Chemosensory Genomics of Stored Product Insects
Position Description and Responsibilities: The Department of Entomology at Kansas State University (Manhattan, KS) invites applicants for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow position to conduct research on chemosensory genomics of stored product insects. The successful applicant will work on a cooperative research project with the USDA/ARS to annotate chemosensory genes from stored product insects, determine whether these insects respond to similar food and/or microbial volatiles and other semiochemicals, determine which compounds in these volatile blends elicit antennal and/or responses, determine if orthologous genes are differentially expressed in olfactory tissues in closely related species, assess whether stored product insects in other taxonomic families
