The CNRS-LECA is recruiting a full–time Study Engineer for joining a research team working on mosquitoes. The initial contract will be established for 12 months and could be extended to 24 months.
The recruited candidate will mainly work on research projects related to insecticide resistance in the tiger mosquito. The candidate will be responsible of maintaining multiple mosquito lines, performing controlled crosses, conducting selection with insecticides, performing comparative bioassays and analyzing related data. The candidate will also contribute to the molecular characterization of resistance mechanisms and the study of their spatiotemporal dynamics through various molecular approaches across different territories.
Minimum qualification required: Bsc in Biology with a strong experience in medical entomology and mosquitoes. Research experience in the field of insecticide resistance will be of added value.
Technical skills: Good knowledge of standard insectary procedures, Aedes mosquitoes rearing, selection with insecticides, larval and adult bioassays. Skills in standard molecular biology techniques (nucleic acids extraction, PCR/qPCR, sequencing). Basic knowledge in statistics. Rigor and planification of work. Working as a team and in autonomy. English elementary level (minimum A2), good level with office package.
The Laboratoire d'Ecologie Alpine of Grenoble, France (CNRS-LECA) is a joint CNRS/University of Grenoble-Alpes laboratory with a strong experience in ecology, evolutionary biology and adaptation. The mosquito group acquired a solid experience in studying the adaptation of mosquitoes to insecticides, with major skills in evolutionary biology, ecotoxicology, transcriptomics, genomics, genetics and functional biology. Available infrastructures include P2-level tropical insectaries and fully equipped molecular biology laboratories.
