Description of duties

This project will assemble publicly available toxicological endpoints for animals and plants. Toxicological data will then be combined with modeled exposure estimates, pesticide use data, and crop yields to determine:

  1. how the toxicity of agricultural pesticides, and the extent to which target and non-target organisms are exposed to these pesticides, have changed over time in the United States, by crop and taxa;

  2. how the toxicity of the pesticides used to produce one unit of agricultural output has changed over time, by crop and taxa; and,

  3. how the exposure to pesticides used to produce one unit of agricultural output has changed over time, by crop and taxa.

Answers to these questions will benefit the general public by informing the debate on whether domestic agricultural systems have become more or less ecologically efficient and sustainable over time.

Qualifications sought

Earned B.S. or M.S. in a field related to crop production, pest management, environmental sciences, or agricultural economics.
