  • Plant functional genomics: modern genomic approaches such as biogeography and/or molecular phylogenetics, functional genomics, and metabolomics to complement and collaborate with a well-established plant science research group.
  • Vector-borne disease biology: research in vector-borne diseases, including viruses, bacteria, or parasitic diseases. Preferred candidate will have strong background in molecular biology and research foci may include areas such as disease transmission, surveillance, diagnostics, or general virology/microbiology.
