Ph.D. Student Positions in Plant Pathology at University of Florida The Department of Plant Pathology at the University of Florida (UF) is currently recruiting motivated Ph.D. students for Fall 2014. We are seeking students to study basic and applied aspects of plant-microbe interactions within the context of agricultural systems. UF Plant Pathology offers a dynamic research environment that includes 37 faculty advisors and a vibrant, diverse graduate student population. The Department is headquartered at the main campus in Gainesville, Florida but many faculty are distributed across the state at nine different Research and Education Centers. Due to Florida’s diverse climate, research in our department addresses a variety of plant pathogenic microbes on crops ranging from tomatoes and citrus to sugarcane and avocados. The wide array of crop-pathogen interactions in Florida provides unique opportunities for students in terms of research, extension, and hands-on education. We anticipate at least two Ph.D. fellowships for 2014. Graduate student applications are due 1 January 2014 and accepted students will begin the Ph.D. program in August 2014. Graduate student fellowships include a competitive stipend and health care coverage. We are seeking students with: - A passion for biology and a BS or MS degree in an appropriate biological science - Appropriate GPA and GRE scores - Strong written and spoken English language skills - Field and/or laboratory experience appropriate for research in Plant Pathology - Strong organizational skills and the ability to complete projects To find out more about the Department of Plant Pathology at the University of Florida and our graduate programs, please visit: http://plantpath.ifas.ufl.edu/ For more details you may also contact our graduate coordinator, Jessica Ulloa <julloa@ufl.edu>
