Graduate Research Assistantship in Stored Product Entomology | Entomological Society of America

One graduate research assistantship is available for a Ph.D. student in the Department of Entomology at Kansas State University. The research will focus on the development of behaviorally-based management strategies such as attract-and-kill and the use of long-lasting insecticide netting to prevent infestation by a range of stored product insects (e.g., red flour beetle, lesser grain borer, Indian meal moth) in mills, warehouses, and other facilities. This will include laboratory assays, semi-field experiments, and field trials.

The student will be co-advised by faculty from the USDA-ARS Center for Grain and Animal Health Research in Manhattan, KS. Successful candidates for this position should possess a M.S. in entomology, biology, or a related field. The student is expected to be supported for at least three years, which includes an annual stipend of $25,000, graduate student fringe benefits, and tuition and fees applied towards the Ph.D. program. The position will be available starting in January 2018, or until a qualified candidate has been identified. Interested individuals should send their curriculum vitae, a cover letter, and the contact information for three references to either Dr. Rob Morrison (william.morrison@ars.usda.gov) or Dr. Kun Yan Zhu (kzhu@ksu.edu) by September 30, 2017 or as soon as possible. However, complete applications must be submitted online at http://entomology.k-state.edu/for-students/admissions.html.
