A postdoctoral position is available in the UC Davis Department of Plant Sciences beginning in April. The successful candidate will have research and extension responsibilities related to assessing the abundance, distribution, and perceived threat of glyphosate-resistant weeds in California orchards and vineyards. The research is part of an integrated research, extension, and education project that focuses on developing and communicating economical and environmentally sound strategies for managing glyphosate-resistant weeds and preventing their further evolution and spread in agroecosystems providing tree fruits and nuts, and wine, table, and raisin grapes.
Applicants must have a Ph.D. degree and experience in herbicide resistance research. A demonstrated ability to effectively bridge between basic research, applied research, and technology transfer efforts related to agricultural weeds or invasive plants is highly preferred. The position is for a minimum of one year, with a second year of support available contingent upon performance and mutual agreement. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications, experience, and prevailing salary scale and includes a full benefits package, with medical, dental, vision, short term disability and life insurance. Submit (1) letter of interest, (2) curriculum vitae including a list of refereed publications, (3) statement of qualifications and research experience, and (4) contact information for three references, including professional and email addresses and phone numbers via mail or email to:
