A postdoctoral position is available in the Department of Entomology at UW-Madison to
work on the management of the invasive spotted wing drosophila in Wisconsin berry crops and on improving pollination services in cranberry. We are looking for a researcher to work on testing new effective baits and on describing the temporal and spatial distribution of SWD populations. Research on cranberry includes testing the effect of pest management strategies on bee fidelity to cranberry. The researcher will be responsible for designing and conducting the research, analyzing the data, and report results in peer-reviewed publications.
