The PhD position is part of a project to investigate the origins and diversification of ectomycorrhizal fungi. The project will study when ectomycorrhiza evolved in fungi, the process with which it has evolved, how biogeographical processes differ between ectomycorrhizal and non-ectomycorrhizal fungi, and processes shaping the phylogenetic diversity of ectomycorrhizal communities.

A post-doctoral research opportunity is available to study impatiens downy mildew disease with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Agricultural Research Service (ARS) Systematic Mycology and Microbiology Laboratory (SMML) in Beltsville, MD.  The desired appointment start date is the spring of 2017.

Impatiens downy mildew (IDM) disease caused by the oomycete Plasmopara obducens is one of several destructive downy mildews affecting specialty crop production in the U.S. and worldwide.  The selected applicant will establish sentinel plots in partnership with collaborators and major U.S. arboreta collections and use these resources together with molecular biology tools to address questions about pathogen evolution, persistence and the role of soil-borne innoculum in the IDM disease cycle.  In addition to serving as lead for this project, the selected applicant will cooperate with other team members, students, collaborators and stakeholders, and contribute to common research goals.
