Postdoctoral position in insect genetic engineering

The Scott lab (, in the Department of Entomology and Plant Pathology at North Carolina State University (NCSU), is searching for a postdoctoral fellow to develop and evaluate conditional female lethal and female transformation systems in the New World screwworm. The research builds on several years of research in developing transgenic screwworm strains. A unique feature of this work is that any promising strains developed could be evaluated under mass rearing conditions in the facility. Candidates must hold a Ph.D. in genetics, molecular biology or related discipline.
Most of the work will be performed in Panama at the COPEG screwworm mass rearing facility. The biosecure facility has a well equipped research laboratory with state-of-the-art microinjection systems and several stereo fluorescence microscopes for screening for transgenic flies.
