Interdisciplinary training will occur with Dr. Jason Stajich at University of California, Riverside and Drs. Joey Spatafora and Kerry McPhail at Oregon State University.
Qualifications: • PhD in community ecology, microbiology, molecular biology, microbial ecology, wildlife disease or a closely related field. • Excellent quantitative skills and substantial experience in R. • Excellent written and oral communication skills including a demonstrated ability to publish in peer-reviewed journals. • Motivated with an excellent work ethic.
