Joining the lab

Students and post-docs fascinated with disease vector insects' behavior, physiology, chemical ecology or neurobiology are invited to join the laboratory. Beyond an interest for disease vector insects, the lab is looking for people that are excited by and committed to collaborative, integrative and interdisciplinary approaches.
