PhD opportunity to study fungal foliar endophytes of Vanuatu at the University of Hawaii The Amend lab at the University of Hawaii at Manoa is recruiting a PhD student to research plant fungal interactions as part of a NSF-funded collaboration. The student will collaborate with a broad consortium of researchers to examine the fungal, botanical and linguistic diversity of Tafea province, Vanuatu, in the South Pacific. This will be the first systematic survey of this oceanic, tropical, biodiversity hotspot. The student will be responsible principally for documenting the endophytic fungi of native host plants using cultivation and high-throughput DNA-sequencing techniques. This will involve long stretches in the field under uncomfortable, remote and staggeringly beautiful conditions. The student will have the opportunity to develop research questions consistent with lab interests in microbial community ecology, biogeography and evolution. The student will enroll in the Department of Botany http://www.botany.hawaii.edu,...

Seeking multiple graduate students in fungi-plant interactions at the University of Alberta The research programs of Nadir Erbilgin, Justine Karst, James Cahill (University of Alberta), Suzanne Simard (University of British Columbia), and Jonathan Cale are seeking motivated and collaborative students (3 PhD, 1 MSc) to work on a project investigating questions focused on the roles of soil fungal communities in modulating boreal forest resistance and resilience to biotic and abiotic disturbances. This project seeks to expand our recent findings demonstrating the effects of mountain pine beetle outbreaks on below- and above-ground processes, including decline of mycorrhizal fungi and pine resistance following forest mortality in western Canada (New Phytol (2015) 208: 904-914; Plant & Soil (2015). 390: 29-47; PLOS One (2015) 10 (4): e0124691). All students will be co-supervised by at least two investigators and the others will be in the students’ theses committees. While student projects will use a subset of these,...
