I am seeking a motivated and creative PhD student to investigate the ectomycorrhizal ecology of pines in forests recently experiencing mountain pine beetle outbreaks. A background in fungal ecology, plant-fungal interactions, metagenomics, or plant defense chemistry would be an asset, but training is provided. A standard University of Alberta Graduate Assistantship will be offered. Proficiency in spoken and written English is required along with the ability to obtain provincial driving privileges upon arrival. Candidates with a MSc, or the equivalent in experience will be given preference. The position starts in May 2016. Applicants must ensure they satisfy University of Alberta Department of Renewable Resources entrance requirements, available for review at: http://www.rr.ualberta.ca/en/GraduateProgram/AdmissionProcess.aspx Interested candidates are encouraged to email (1) an unofficial transcript (undergraduate and MSc), (2) curriculum vitae, and (3) a brief personal statement describing research and career goals to Justine Karst, justine.karst@ualberta.ca by February 19, 2016. http://www.rr.ualberta.ca/StaffProfiles/AcademicStaff/Karst.aspx
