Candidates are sought with demonstrated capacity to integrate new technologies with classical field-and laboratory-based approaches in their research program. The successful applicant will be expected to build a nationally and internationally recognized research program that integrates modern and conventional methods to study and reduce pest arthropods and encourage beneficial arthropods on plants in horticultural production and urban landscapes. Potential research topics include, but are not limited to, integrated pest management, biological control, and pest ecology. CSU’s College of Agricultural Sciences has critical research mass in the areas of Ag Tech, microbiomes, data science, and soil health. Being interdisciplinary in nature, BSPM values cooperative and collaborative efforts with other units within the University, as well as relevant external entities in Colorado and beyond.
