Postdoctoral Fellowship Opportunity – Vector Mosquito Genetics

We seek a highly motivated research scholar with excellent technical and communication skills to work in the laboratory of Molly Duman Scheel at the Indiana University School of Medicine, South Bend, IN, which is located at the University of Notre Dame. Our laboratory pursues functional genetic characterization of multiple species of human disease vector mosquitoes. Current research interests include i) discovery and characterization of RNAi pesticides, functional genetic analysis of developing and adult mosquito sensory systems, oviposition behavior, and mosquito enhancer discovery and characterization. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to interact with many talented vector biologists at the Notre Dame Eck Institute for Global Health. Candidates should have expertise in one or more of the following areas: vector mosquito biology, RNAi, pesticides, arthropod genetics and genomics, developmental biology, neurobiology, yeast/yeast genetics (which we are using as an expression system), evolutionary development, and entomology. Field experience is useful, though not required. Our laboratory is presently funded by USAID, NIH/NIAID, and the U.S. Department of Defense. Funding for two years, with a competitive salary and benefits and low cost of living, is available immediately. More information about our laboratory and the research programs of our many local collaborators is available is available at: https://medicine.iu.edu/education/campuses/south-bend/faculty/7391/duman-scheel-molly/ and https://globalhealth.nd.edu/. Applicants should send a cover letter, C.V., and the names/contact information for three references to mscheel@nd.edu.
