Please find attached flyers for a PhD scholarship AND a Post Doctoral
Fellowship to work on various aspects of pest management in pine
plantations in Australia.

The project has three main components: (i) field survey and insect
rearing work to investigate the severity of ips bark beetle damage and
the extent to which it is adversely affecting the current program of
nematode-based biological control of sirex wood wasp (ii) laboratory
studies of the interactions between ips bark beetle, sirex wood wasp and
the fungi and nematodes associated with each (iii) laboratory and field
experiments on possible pest management strategies to reduce the impact
of ips bark beetle. The split of components between the PhD and
postdoctoral fellow will be negotiated according to the background of
the preferred applicants.

Both positions are open to overseas applicants.

If you are interested I can forward you the grant application that was
submitted to win the funds for the project, or feel free to email me
with any queries.

I apologise if you receive this message multiple times due to the 3
mailing lists.
