Postdoctoral Position on genes that impact blow fly behavior

Blow flies are an ideal system for studying the evolution of the parasitic habit. We are currently recruiting a postdoctoral fellow to use CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing to assess the importance of selected genes in oviposition behavior, larval diet preference and olfaction preference in Lucilia cuprina and Cochliomyia macellaria. We have developed efficient methods for gene editing and transgenesis in these species and have assembled and annotated reference quality genomes.
