The Berry Crop Entomology Lab at MSU has multiple positions for full time (40h/wk) field research assistants for Summer 2017. The people chosen for this position will assist researchers with fieldwork in studies dealing with natural enemies, pollinators and insect pests in blueberry fields and grape vineyards in southwest Michigan. Work will involve trips in MSU vehicles to research sites in Southwest Michigan. Interest in and basic knowledge of insects, biology and/or agriculture will be helpful. Candidates must be enthusiastic and self-motivated, willing to work flexible hours, enjoy working outside, have a good driving record, and be able to work independently. Applicants should be available weekdays because all day travel to field sites is required. There will also be some work in the lab sorting samples and identifying pest and beneficial insects. This position may be extended through next spring depending on funding. Starting pay rate is $11.00/hr, and fieldwork begins May 8th. If you are interested, please send a cover letter and resume to Philip Fanning: firstname.lastname@example.org.
