The Branco Lab in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at Montana State University is recruiting a motivated graduate student for the Fall of 2018. We seek students broadly interested in fungal ecology and evolution to study the patterns and mechanisms of adaptation to hostile environments such as mine contaminated soils and hot springs. The work will focus on determining patterns of soil fungal diversity as well as the physiological and genetic basis of tolerance in target fungal species.

We are looking for a graduate student to join our research group beginning in fall semester 2018. The student would develop an independent research focus in line with ongoing lab projects. We are exploring how plant traits relate to community structure and function of plant-associated microbes and termites using culturing and next generation sequencing techniques and the consequences of these interactions for the forest carbon cycle in the USA, France and Australia as climate changes.
