Dear Fellow Mycologists, We are soliciting your financial assistance and student applications for the MSA Undergraduate Research award. Each year, the Mycological Society of America awards several graduate fellowships to support the research and professional development of young scientists that show promise in the field of mycology. These annual awards are made possible by the generous support of MSA benefactors and society members and are an important component of the society’s mission to promote opportunities for young mycologists. This year, the MSA Education and Endowment Committees have initiated the Undergraduate Research Award to enhance opportunities for undergraduate students pursuing research projects in mycology. We anticipate that this award will be an important tool in supporting young scientists as they explore their interest in fungal biology. We hope that all MSA members will encourage excellent undergraduate mycologists to apply for this award. We also ask that all society members...

Graduate Student Opportunities in Fungal Ecology The Hynson lab at the University of Hawaii Manoa, Department of Botany is currently recruiting highly motivated, enthusiastic, and well qualified graduate students for Fall 2014 enrollment. We study fungal ecology with an emphasis on plant-fungal interactions such as the mycorrhizal symbiosis. The goal of our research is to increase our current understandings of the mycorrhizal symbiosis in relation to plant and fungal community dynamics and ecosystem function. We accomplish this through field and laboratory experiments that utilize cutting-edge techniques in molecular ecology and ecophysiology. We are seeking graduate student applicants at the MS and PhD levels with strong backgrounds in ecology and/or fungal biology. For more information on the Hynson Lab and how to apply see: http://www2.hawaii.edu/~nhynson/Hynson_Lab/Welcome.html or contact Nicole Hynson at nhynson@hawaii.edu....

A postdoc position is available in the Amend Lab at the Department of Botany at the University of Hawaii. The successful applicant will join a growing and dynamic group of researchers interested in microbial ecology and evolution within the unique Hawaiian archipelago. The postdoctoral associate will be responsible for carrying out a study whose goal is to determine how the mycophagous diet of a Federally endangered tree snail, Achatinella mustelina, covaries among populations and host plant species. The snail is one of several species within Achatinella comprising a spectacular adaptive radiation endemic to the island of Oahu. Additional background information is available on the Tree Snail Conservation Lab website: http://www2.hawaii.edu/~trsnlab/index.html Primary research objectives will be to analyze and synthesize for publication, a large Illumina amplicon dataset of fungi and bacteria from 150 host plant biofilm/snail feces pairs to infer diet dynamics from throughout the snail's natural and captive range. A secondary objective will be to isolate and identify fungal species from host trees to augment captive snail breeding programs....

During this year’s annual meeting in Austin TX, the Mycological Society of America will continue to develop its Student Section. This student-run group within the MSA has as its goal to facilitate communication among students of the Society as well as provide opportunities for them to network with other students in their own fields and beyond. It will also be valuable in stimulating future collaborative research among student members of MSA, involved in different areas of study. The Student Section is open and inclusive, welcoming the participation of all students in strengthening this group. We look forward to your participation in our mixer and hope you can also join us at our future events.



History The Student Section was initiated in Fairbanks 2011 and launched in 2012 at the annual MSA meeting in New...
