The Walker Lab at Tennessee Tech University is currently seeking applications for MSc students to advance research on a project focused on bacterial and fungal interactions with reptiles and amphibians. Our lab group uses next-generation sequencing and culture dependent approaches to study host-microbe associations of the herpetofauna microbiome. Emerging infectious fungal pathogens are threatening reptiles and amphibians world-wide; therefore, we are interested in answering broad questions centered on the importance of the host microbiome in species conservation. The southeastern United States is a global ‘hotspot’ for amphibian biodiversity and serves as a foundation for our field studies. MSc students will be expected to develop an independent research project in the beautiful southeastern US studying microbial symbionts and pathogens of reptiles or amphibians. Research will draw evidence from diverse fields such as genomics, fieldwork, molecular systematics and pathology. Prior experience or training...
