Postdoctoral position – plant biotic interactions/plant-virus-vector interactions at Cornell University, Ithaca NY

A postdoctoral position is available in the Casteel lab at Cornell University, starting after February 2019. The focus of this NSF-funded position is on elucidating the key molecular mechanisms that mediate plant-potyvirus-vector interactions. The Casteel lab uses a combination of molecular biology, genetics, genomics and biochemistry together with laboratory trials to answer ecologically relevant questions.
