Post-doctoral position: Vector Surveillance Research


The Clay lab at Indiana University (www.indiana.edu/~symbios) seeks to hire a postdoctoral fellow to help elucidate long-term patterns in arthropod vector abundance, pathogen prevalence and environmental conditions as part of a large, multidisciplinary IU initiative (Prepared for Environmental Change). In particular, the candidate will investigate existing Midwestern vector databases, interface with state agencies to identify monitoring sites and obtain all permits and permissions, establish and field test vector sampling protocols, optimize laboratory protocols for testing vector species for pathogen infection, and contribute to the development of GIS maps of vector and pathogen distributions. Most research would be conducted in the Midwest in Indiana and surrounding states, and would be based at Indiana University-Bloomington.


Ph.D. in a biology-related field and experience in field sampling and/or laboratory diagnostics of vector-borne pathogens desired. The successful candidate should have demonstrated skills relevant to the project and experience working on large projects. The duration of the position is a minimum of two years but potentially up to five years. Salary is $45,000 – $50,000, plus health benefits, depending on experience.


To apply, please submit a letter of interest, statement of research interests, a C.V, copies of relevant publications, and the contact information for three references to https://indiana.peop...m/postings/3971 or send to Jeremy Bennett, 1001 E. Third St., Bloomington, IN 47405 (jebennet@indiana.edu). Review of applications will start immediately and will continue until position is filled. Best consideration for those applying prior to July 15, 2017. Inquiries about the position can be directed to Keith Clay (clay@indiana.edu).
