A USDA ARS postdoctoral position is available to study cellular and 
molecular biology of insect pathogenic fungi.  The successful candidate 
will work as part of a team whose goals include the development of 
entomopathogenic fungi as viable control agents 
for agriculturally important insect pests.  Work will involve 
1) selection and development of  fungus strains with improved 
tolerance for environmental conditions; 2) determination of 
mechanisms of germination and host penetration; and 3) development of 
molecular markers as tools for related studies of epizootiology and pest 
management.  Ph.D. in molecular biology, plant or insect pathology, 
mycology, microbiology, or related field.  Skill in the use of 
equipment and techniques in these fields also required.  
Position available immediately and open until a suitable candidate is found.
Salary $33,623/year.  USDA Agricultural Research Service is an Equal
