Funding is available from a USDA NIFA grant for a Ph.D. assistantship in 
entomology in the Department of Plant and Environmental Sciences at Clemson 
University. Research will focus on plant/herbivore interactions. This work 
will involve field, greenhouse, and laboratory trials to quantify resistance 
to thrips among exotic cotton landraces and identify mechanisms of 
resistance, with an emphasis on defensive chemistry. Candidates should 
possess an M.S. in entomology, biology, or related field. For more 
information, please contact Dr. Francis Reay-Jones ( 
Applicants should attach CV, cover letter, and contact information for three 
references. Competitive stipend and tuition. Candidates will be required to 
formally apply to and be accepted by the Clemson University Graduate School
