Research Scientist - Honey Bee Molecular Pathology

Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada

A highly motivated scientist is sought to undertake research in apiculture with an emphasis in molecular pathology of
honey bee diseases, pests and parasites. The scientist will be expected to provide leadership in an ongoing research
project examining key risk factors as determinants of honey bee colony survival. The scientist will also be expected to
initiate independent research working in collaboration with industry and other members of AAFC’s apiculture research
team in the area of honey bee health and disease mitigation strategies. Emphasis will be placed on objectives supporting
the domestic and international competitiveness of the Canadian Beekeeping Industry through development of innovative
molecular diagnostics, novel management for parasitic mites and diseases, as well as strategies to maximize colony
survival and productivity. For appointment to the position, the scientist must have a Ph.D. in science with a broad level
of knowledge of apiculture. Demonstrated applied research ability integrating scientific principles into solutions for
commercial apiculture, in addition to knowledge of the Canadian Beekeeping Industry and its current challenges, are
highly desirable.
