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...

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....
