An assistantship is available starting Fall 2017, to work on a Rhipicephalus sanguineus population dynamics project funded by the CDC Southeastern Regional Center of Excellence in Vector Borne Diseases Gateway Program. This is a joint project with the Florida Medical Entomology Lab (Lord lab)/ Entomology & Nematology Department (Kaufman Lab) at the University of Florida. The project will use theoretical and laboratory methods to investigate the consequences of insecticide resistance for population dynamics, population structure and control strategies. Some background in mathematics, statistics and programming is advantageous. For more information, contact Cynthia Lord at email@example.com.
