The scientist will be part of a collaborative team using molecular, cellular, and –omics approaches to study plant-virus-vector interactions. The candidate will work with insect-transmitted viruses. Initial work will focus on characterizing the basic biology of the virus-aphid vector interaction and these findings will lead to research aimed at understanding the molecular basis of virus transmission by vectors. The scientist will also mentor and manage undergraduate researchers.

Experience with cloning positive stranded RNA plant viruses, construction of full-length infectious clones and mutagenesis of regulatory regions.

Project funded for 2-4 years depending on progress achieved.
