The Murray and Walker Labs at Tennessee Technological University are currently seeking applications for MSc students to advance research on the alligator nest microbiome. The proposed work will take a multidisciplinary approach between a crocodilian physiologist (Dr. Chris Murray) and microbial ecologist (Dr. Donald Walker). The research will utilize a cutting-edge molecular approach to assess spatial and temporal structure of the alligator nest and egg shell microbiome. The project will include both a field and lab component. Field work will occur in the bayou ecosystems of Alabama, Louisiana, and southeastern Texas.    

Prior experience or training in microbiology, mycology, herpetology, or molecular biology is preferred. The MSc position is to begin in August 2017. Prospective students should inquire directly with Donald Walker (dmwalker@tntech.edu) or Chris Murray (cmmurray@tntech.edu) and include your CV, a statement of interest, and unofficial transcripts in your inquiry.
