Prospective students and postdocs:

I am currently looking for new graduate students to join the lab, and would be delighted if you contacted me to discuss mutual interests and the possible opportunities. Those interested in all aspects of fungal evolution would be highly encouraged, however please email with specific details of how your prior experience or future research is a good fit for our group. The EEB department at U. Michigan has a vibrant PhD program and master’s programs. Application deadlines are Dec. 1st. Currently, we have funding for a postdoctoral fellows in Cryptomycota ecological genomics (see ad on front page). An excellent opportunity for postdoctoral scholars looking to train towards a future academic position (research and teaching experience) is provided by the Michigan Society of Fellows program.
