Abebe Jenberie Wubie is an ethical and ambitious person always eager to learn. With nineteen-years of work experience in agriculture, he is now a university assistant professor and lecturer in beekeeping. He has got two regional competitive grants awarded in beekeeping. As a committee member of the only national apicultural museum, he played a leading role to push forward the successful establishment of this museum, Ethiopia.

Research Interests

At higher level, working with/on honeybees is always his dream and to which he would like to devote his skill, time and energy. With this, he is strongly interested in ~omics based exploration of their molecular mechanisms in response to challenges from external factors including pathogens; learning these molecular dramatic shifts, interpreting their meanings and assumptions in a way that can be further manipulated and contributing to the scientific community and of course to save our bees.


September 2011 – July 2014: Awarded with a PhD. degree in The Rearing of small beneficial insects (honeybees and silk worms) from Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences, Apiculture Research Institute, Beijing, P.R. China

March 2006 – June, 2008: Awarded with a Master of Science Degree in Livestock Production and Pastoral Development from Mekelle University, Ethiopia

September 1992 –July, 1996: Awarded with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Animal Production and Range land Management from Awassa College of Agriculture, Ethiopia

Work Experience

February 2016 – to date: a post-doctoral fellow at Institute of Apicultural Research, Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences (IAR-CAAS), Beijing, China under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Jianke Li, working on proteomic and metabolomics underpinnings of Varroa destructor interaction with the globally major Honeybee species (Apis cerana, Apis mellifera linguistica and Apis mellifera scutellata)

August 2015 – to date: working as an assistant professor and lecturer at Bahir Dar University, college of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, Bahir Dar, Ethiopia

April 3, 2003 – to August 15, 2015: worked as a apiculture researcher at Sekota Dry land Agricultural Research Center, Amhara Region, Ethiopia
