Biocontrol Knowledge Broker & Capability Leader
Manaaki Whenua/Landcare Research, Christchurch, New Zealand

Job Opportunity: 11 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) – PhD positions within the project "INTERFUTURE": From microbial interactions to new-concept biopesticides and biofertilizers

Our team is involved in all aspects of the development of biocontrol programmes for serious invasive weed and wasp species in New Zealand and the research that underpins the success, safety and cost-effectiveness of this approach. We explore the feasibility of projects and gain funding for them, undertake overseas exploration for agents, followed by host-range testing and other containment studies of prospective agents, and then gain permission to release suitable agents. We also mass-rear and field release approved agents and undertake follow up evaluation. At all stages we work with stakeholders and end-users to ensure our research is fit for purpose and can be quickly adopted.

We are looking for someone to join our team to help with this work, especially project and client management, helping to explore and realise new opportunities, support and develop the capability of staff in the biocontrol area, and assist with a range of communication activities especially consultation and gaining approval to release new biocontrol agents.

The position is open term, full time, and is based at our Lincoln office.
