SUMMARY

The Vector-Borne Disease Laboratory (VBDL) supports statewide surveillance and control of vector-borne diseases such as endemic and emerging arboviruses, Lyme disease, and plague.  In addition to testing environmental samples such as ticks, fleas, and animal blood for vector-borne and zoonotic disease agents, VBDL tests mosquitoes for molecular markers that indicate potential pesticide resistance to commonly used insecticides. In order to support effective statewide control of invasive Aedes aegypti and Ae. albopictus mosquitoes, that have the potential to transmit Zika virus, the VBDL will increase laboratory testing capacity to determine susceptibility of mosquitoes to the range of pesticides that may be used by local vector control agencies. The Microbiologist will independently develop novel molecular assays, such as an assay to test field-collected Ae. albopictus mosquitoes for pesticide resistance in California. In addition, the Microbiologist will work with VBDS staff to make and distribute screening bottle bioassays for local vector control agency pesticide resistance preliminary testing. Results are used to inform control or education activities by state and local governmental agencies.

The position reports to the Supervising Public Health Biologist and works closely with the Vector-borne Disease Public Health Biologists, Mosquito Control Specialist, Assistant Microbiologists, and Microbiologists.
