Welcome to the
Entomological Society of Ontario
The Entomological Society of Ontario (ESO) is an active society, dedicated to furthering entomology through annual meetings and publications. Over the past 149 years, it has served as an association of persons interested in the science of entomology. Today, as always, members of the Society have varied entomological interests; physiology, taxonomy, ecology and pest management. Although founded by amateurs, whose active participation is encouraged today the majority of the Society’s members are professionals, sharing their interests and expertise while working either in Provincial or Federal governments, industry or universities within Ontario as well as other parts of Canada and the world.

Graduate Research Assistant (GRA) Position
University of Guelph (Ridgetown Campus)
Ontario Agricultural College
Department of Plant Agriculture
High profile, multidisciplinary, multinational, multi-institutional, multi-stakeholder.
The Department of Plant Agriculture is seeking applicants to fill a GRA position at the PhD level to oversee an independent risk assessment of neonicotinoid exposure to honeybees in a corn/soybean ecosystem where seed treatment use predominates. The assessment will compare two data sets. The first was collected during a period of high exposure resulting in a robust, comprehensive data set for neonicotinoid residues in numerous matrices from commercial fields from 2013-15. The second data set will be collected during 2016-18 during a period of transition to reduced exposure as a result of restricted and mitigated use. We are seeking a highly-motivated and objective scientist to use these Tier 3 data to conduct this critically important risk assessment under the guidance of a team of independent scientists from the University of Guelph, Michigan State University and the University of Manitoba. . . .
