A postdoctoral position funded through USDA-NIFA-CDRE is available in Dr. Jawwad Qureshi’s entomology program at the University of Florida Indian River Research and Education Center (IRREC) in Fort Pierce FL.

Research will focus on monitoring and management of insect and mite pests of Citrus Under Protective
Screen (CUPS). CUPS screen selectively excludes Asian citrus psyllid and therefore huanglongbing disease, but allows entry of smaller pests (e.g. thrips, mites, scales), and diseases (e.g. greasy spot, citrus canker), requiring unique integrated pest management (IPM) guidelines and novel tools for management. The successful candidate will be expected to develop effective monitoring tools and
evaluate biological and chemical methods of pest and disease control in CUPS located at IRREC and with grower collaborators to develop integrated management programs for these production systems. Experience in insect behavior, ecology, IPM and statistics is required. Candidate will be expected to publish peer reviewed and extension articles and prepare reports and presentation to deliver to clientele. 

The position is available immediately. To apply, send a cover letter, CV, sample publications and contact information for 3 professional references to Dr. Qureshi (
