PhD on plant-microbe interaction
Interested in plants? Microbes? Keen to learn and apply -omics? Fieldwork in the marshes?
Texas A&M University – Corpus Christi: There is an opportunity for a student seeking an MS or PhD in the Plant, Microbe and Global Change Lab (https://candicelumibaolab.com). Position will start in the Fall 2022. The student’s research focus will have flexibility but will generally fall within current lab interests including: impacts of environmental stressors on plant-microbe interactions in coastal ecosystems, influence of microbes on host plant fitness, linkages across plant traits, genotypic variation and microbial communities.
Qualifications: Applicants should be highly self-motivated and have at least one year of research experience. Strong applicants will have some experience in molecular/microbial work, and in statistical computing (e.g., experience using R). However, grad school is also about learning new things, so if you don’t have any of those experience but willing to learn, don’t give up easily and think that plants and microbes are cool, please apply.
To inquire, interested students should send via email: (1) brief statement of interest or cover letter describing experience and potential research interests and general career goals, (2) CV and names and (3) email addresses for 3 references to Dr. Candice Lumibao at firstname.lastname@example.org.
