Post-Doctoral Fellow/Research Associate in Phylogenetics/Molecular Diagnosis The main objective of this joint project between the Department of Plant Pathology & Environmental Microbiology at Penn State and the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture (PDA) is to survey and identify high-risk pathogens threatening the PA agriculture using both the molecular and conventional diagnostic tools. Main target pathogens are Phytophthora species, but additional pathogens may be included. Experience in phylogenetics and molecular diagnosis is highly desirable but not essential. The candidate will work at PDA (Harrisburg, PA), which is located about 1.5 hours away from Penn State. Main responsibilities include: (a) identifying Phytophthora isolates/species via sequencing and phylogenetic analysis, (b) assisting researchers at PDA in conducting real-time PCR-based detection of P. ramorum in stream samples and plant materials from local surveys; and (c) developing molecular diagnostic tools for selected pathogens.

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...
