A postdoctoral position is available to study plant-insect 
interactions in Georg Jander's lab at the Boyce Thompson Institute. 
Genetic, biochemical, and insect behavior research approaches will be 
used to study natural variation in maize resistance to aphids and 
rootworms. Responsibilities of the successful applicant will include 
the design and implementation of laboratory and field experiments 
related to maize-insect interactions. Development of additional areas 
of interest within the scope of the project is encouraged. The 
research will also involve close interactions with engineers at 
Cornell University who are developing automated insect detection 
systems for laboratory and agricultural applications. The position 
will be filled as early as January, 2010, and funding is available 
for three years. Candidates with backgrounds in genetic mapping and 
quantitative genetics are particularly encouraged to apply. The Boyce 
Thompson Institute is a private not for profit research organization 
located on the campus of Cornell University in the scenic Finger 
Lakes region of upstate New York. Information about the institute and 
its facilities can be found at
