The Department of Entomology and Plant Pathology at North Carolina State has extended the deadline for application to the position of tenure-track Assistant Professor- Precision Pest Ecology until Nov. 28 (https://jobs.ncsu.edu/postings/73753). We have some good applicants, but a relatively small pool at this point.
For this position, there is also a 40% extension component that will be required to overlap my 70% extension component in field crops. As a result, I have a vested interest in ensuring that this position is filled with an individual who will be collaborative and serve our extension stakeholders. Also, please note that while GIS skills are desirable for the research component (60%), there is no requirement that the individual possess this particular skill set. We encourage any qualified applicant to apply.
