Salary is ~$~61,000/yr, hired through University of Hawaii Manoa

Aloha! The USDA-ARS Pacific Basin Agricultural Research Center (Geib
Lab) and University of Hawaii Manoa (Rubinoff Lab) have funding for a Junior Researcher (Postdoc) to work on
genetics of pest fruit flies.
The research project is focused on utilizing genomic approaches for improving detection and identification of
pest Tephritid fruit flies.
Most of the work involves analyzing populations of Tephritid fruit fly species using genome-wide analysis
techniques towards marker discovery and developing assays for determination of source populations. In
addition, position would including assisting in ongoing experiments on quantitative genetics of fruit flies to
identify causative loci for traits of interest. The applicant will be expected to work independently and supervise
technical staff and students, as well as work well as part of a larger research team. Experience in wet-lab
molecular biology, genetics, as well as computational analysis of high- throughput sequence data is required.
Specific background in population genetics/genomics and knowledge of linux/unix, scripting, etc. as well as
performing NGS approaches (RAD-Seq, GBS (genotyping by sequencing), RNA-seq, WGS) are desired. We have
advanced computing resources in- house, automated laboratory instrumentation, and a very active research
Salary is ~$~61,000/yr, hired through University of Hawaii Manoa, and the job will be stationed at the
USDA-ARS Pacific Basin Agricultural Research Center in Hilo, HI (on the Big Island of Hawaii).
Minimum PhD in genetics, biology, entomology, or similar is required. If interested, please contact Dr.
Scott Geib at [email protected] and submit CV and contact for at least 3 references
