- Postdoctoral Scholar at Washington State University The lab of David Crowder at Washington State University is seeking a postdoctoral scholar to examine the landscape ecology of brown marmorated stink bug, an invasive insect that threatens specialty crops throughout the United States. The postdoc will help lead a nationwide effort, as part of a funded USDA Specialty Crops Research Initiative Grant, to develop models exploring how landscape-level and environmental factors interact to affect stink bug population dynamics and distribution.

- Master’s Position in “Field Insect Ecology and Public Outreach” at Utah State University We seek a highly motivated student to study ecology and behavior of brown marmorated stink bug in Utah’s urban-agricultural landscapes, beginning August 2017. Specifically, the project will focus on determining the phenology (timing and development) of brown marmorated stink bug life stages (eggs, nymphs, and adults), and comparing efficacy of traps and pheromone lures for adults in fruit and adjacent crops. Participation in public outreach activities is expected. A Bachelor’s degree in biology, entomology, horticulture, or closely related discipline is required. Preference will be given to applications received by December 15, 2016. Read full announcement for more details.
