Undergraduate Research Assistantship (URA) position available in the Hofmockel Microbial Ecology Lab (KirstenHofmockel.org) assisting with laboratory and field work focused on linking microbial functional genes to landscape scale ecosystem processes. Applicants should be independent and highly motivated. Research experience in molecular techniques or physiological assays preferred, but not required. I encourage prospective students to contact me prior to submitting URA application (email@example.com).
I am seeking highly motivated doctoral students to join the Microbial Ecology research group in the Department of Ecology, Evolution & Organismal Biology (EEOB).
My research group studies the consequences of global change to plant and soil-microbial communities and ecosystem carbon and nitrogen cycling. We are interested in identifying how microbial community structure relates to microbial physiology and function and connecting this understanding to field measurements of ecosystem processes.
