Hi Folks,


I’m seeking a highly motivated graduate student for Ph.D. research in systematics. Competitive applicants must have an M.S. in entomology, biology, or a related field with an emphasis on systematics. Their research interest should be in Hymenoptera. This assistantship is funded through a 0.5 time Insect Diagnostician position as described below.



1. Earned M.S. in entomology, biology, or a related field

2. Broad knowledge of insect systematics, other arthropods, and identification


Responsibilities of Insect Diagnostician:

1. Provide identifications of invertebrate animals (arthropods, mollusks, annelids, etc.) and artifacts/damage from these to the public, usually through the Cooperative Extension service at the county level.

2. Provide identification support to faculty and/or university related projects.

3. Cooperate with other diagnosticians (Departments of Plant Pathology, Biology- herbarium and Horticulture) on campus.

4. Cooperate with other relevant agencies such as USDA, CDC, etc.
