Temporary Technician

Company: Cornell University
Location: New York
Posted on: November 11, 2019

Job Description:

In the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, the Department of Entomology is located on both the Ithaca and Geneva campus. Their mission is threefold: To pursue studies to understand basic and applied aspects of insect biology; to provide a robust and modern curriculum as part of preeminent undergraduate and graduate programs; and to inform and educate the public about the issues related to insects and other arthropods. The Department of Entomology has 30 faculty and senior academics in Ithaca and 14 within the Geneva campus The Danforth lab at Cornell University seeks a highly qualified applicant to assist in research on the brood cell microbiome of solitary bees. Bees and angiosperms are one of Earth s most successful evolutionary and ecological partnerships. Bees gather, transport, and store floral products including pollen, nectar, and floral oils and, in the process, serve an essential role in plant reproduction: pollination. However, this bipartite relationship may involve a third hidden partner microbes (bacteria and yeasts). Historical literature, more recent microbial metagenomic studies, and our own preliminary data suggest that bees rely heavily on microbes obtained from flowers for larval nutrition. The pollen/nectar provisions stored by solitary bees for larval development host a diverse microbial community rich in fermentative bacteria and yeasts. Stable isotope analyses indicate that bees derive proteins and lipids from these microbial sources, meaning these microbial communities are an important component of the larval diet. Our project focuses on characterizing the microbial diversity of pollen/nectar provisions in solitary bees, using Osmia cornifrons (Megachilidae) as a model system, and understanding how perturbations to the microbial community impact larval development. We seek a technician who can: * Conduct field and laboratory experiments on mason bees (Osmia cornifrons) * Rear mason bee larvae under sterile conditions in the laboratory using tissue culture plates * Conduct manipulative experiments of mason bee larval development in the laboratory * Collect data on larval development over time * Carry out basic molecular procedures, including DNA extraction, PCR, and Sanger sequencing of mason bee pollen and nectar provisions and larval guts Additional background and details on the project can be found here: ************************************************************************* This position is full time (39 hours/week) and will be located in Ithaca, NY.
