Job Opportunities
Coming Soon: Engineering Position- USDA Stored Product Insect and Engineering Unit
Applications will be handled through USA Jobs (usajobs.gov)  which can be subscribed to for notifications. Job duties include:
  • Develop economical, effective, and ecologically sound methods for managing insect pests of grain and processed commodities, improve post-harvest management practices, and develop methods to rapidly evaluate grain quality.
  • Develop instruments and procedures to rapidly and non-destructively detect attributes that relate to end-use functionality of grain such as fungal damage, transgenic seeds, protein quality, toxins, and insect infestations.
  • Conduct research leading to fundamental information and commercial production of instrumentation urgently needed by the U.S. and the international grain industry for objective automated determination of grain class, uniformity, grade, functionality, kernel morphology and other properties related to end-use value and safety.
  • Develop technology for rapidly detecting insect characteristics that will lead to improved control of pest insects, mycotoxins and reductions in pesticide usage.
  • Develop technology for detecting toxins that will help breeders select kernels to rapidly develop lines resistant to pathogens.
  • Integrate information from the fields of engineering, genetics, chemistry, plant science, entomology, physics, and biology to solve complex problems.

Internship Opportunity
US Department of Defense Biometric Sensor Development Research Internship
The Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), located at Wright-Patterson AFB, OH, is seeking a research participant for the Airman Systems Directorate, 711th Human Performance Wing. The participant will support research to develop a biometric sensor based on measuring and characterizing mitochondrial structure and function as an indicator of Airman health and performance. Specifically, the biometric sensor will detect mitochondria traits to quantitatively inform physiological conditions and predict future performance. Learn more...
