Summer 2010 research assistant, Justin, near our organic aphid management trial. You, too, could spend your summer in the beautiful tobacco, blackberry, blueberry, and strawberry fields of North Carolina.

The Burrack Lab is seeking up to 2 motivated, reliable summer field assistants. These positions are a great opportunity for someone interested in applied entomology, agriculture, pest management, or field ecology. The right applicant will be enthusiastic, able to follow directions, and a team player.

Individuals must be comfortable around pesticide application and willing to wear proper personal protective equipment as deemed necessary by their supervisor.
