Graduate Research Assistantship
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. . . .
