Description

This position is to support a breadth of different research associated with crop protection, and food security in Africa, as well as providing the plant material that is being used for genetically engineering plants. The specific tasks and learning opportunities start with plant maintenance (watering, fertilizer, potting, etc.) and have the opportunity to span into the lab work use of these plants for either genetic transformation, or use in methods called ‘transient expression’ where the DNA is not integrated into the chromosome, but instead delivered for short-term gene testing. Some of the plants are maintained for seed production (tomatoes) where others are maintained in insect cages to assure no introduction of pests/viruses for use as plant samples and materials in the lab. This position is open to any student of any major that hopefully has (or is willing to develop) a green thumb.
