The Doyle Lab at Louisiana State University and LSU AgCenter in Baton Rouge, Louisiana is looking to recruit an inquisitive, enthusiastic, and well-qualified graduate student to work on one of several projects in fungal phylogenomics starting in Winter/Spring of 2017. The ideal candidate will be interested in pursuing a PhD, however Masters students will be considered. Candidates with experience in phylogenetics, bioinformatics, and mycology will be given preference, but good communication skills plus a strong interest in fungal evolution and phylogenetic inference is a must. There will be opportunities to develop a project that combines field, lab, and computational work within the broader scope of our lab’s research program. A research assistantship plus research support is currently funded for 3 years, but students will be expected to pursue additional funding. Interested candidates should contact Vinson Doyle (vdoyle@agcenter.lsu.edu) with a statement of research interest and pertinent qualifications, CV, and contact information for three references. Please include “graduate studies in fungal phylogenomics” in the subject line. Informal inquiries are also welcome.
