A Post-Doctoral position in Chemical Ecology to work in Piracicaba, Brazil (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Piracicaba) is available at the Laboratory of Chemical Ecology and Insect Behaviors, based in the Department of Entomology and Acarology (http://www.lea.esalq.usp.br/en/about-us) of the University of São Paulo’s Luiz de Queiroz College of Agriculture (ESALQ-USP).
The opportunity features fellowship granted by the São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) and involves the collection and analysis of root volatiles under laboratory and semi-field experiments. The project that supports this position focus on: i) the investigation of the production and release of root volatiles compounds by cultivated and uncultivated plants; ii) evaluation of how these compounds can act in plant-plant interaction, altering the root volatiles and chemical configuration of neighboring plants, and their interaction with herbivores.
Qualifications: i) Ph.D. in entomology or related fields; ii) experience working with bioassays and collection of root volatiles; iii) strong quantitative skills with Gas Chromatography (GC-FID and GC-MS); iv) knowledge of data analysis; and v) previous experience with plant-herbivore interactions.
The desirable skills will be considered based on the curriculum vitae and papers published by the candidate within the required qualifications.
How to Apply
