  • The Laboratory of Molecular Biology and Genomics of the Department of Biochemistry and Biotechnology of the University of Thessaly intends to employ one or two researchers, either for the preparation of a doctoral thesis or for postdoctoral research. Researchers will be supported by a Horizon Europe research program (REACT: Rapid elimination of invasive agricultural insect pest outbreaks by tackling them with Sterile Insect Techniques programs) that concerns the development of technologies for the control of invasions of entomological enemies of agricultural importance, specifically flies of the Tephritidae family. Among other things, the program involves the creation of genetic sexing strains with cutting-edge technologies. Our Laboratory will focus on the development of molecular markers to assess the quality of mass- reared insects as well as on the analysis of the structure, function and evolution of the Y chromosomes of these flies.
